Ah crud, I'm not nearly good enough to compete with the real heavy hitters in the community of SC fan artists, but I'm going to give this a shot, anyway! Exams finish on the 15th of June, so I can't wait to get cracking!

Are multiple entries allowed? :]

What size you want it to be in?

Completely original will be hard since I guess it requires at least decent rendering-skills or drawing-skills :(

By completely original, does that mean we cannot repurpose a video screenshot from the game or piece of concept art created by Blizzard? If so my chance is shot.

The article doesn't say that originality is a requirement. You can use whatever you want - it's a wallpaper contest. No size requirement.

We don't really want a photo-manipulation. That's what we meant.

I assume your decision will not depend on whether the fan art is made traditionally or digitally as long as the overall quality of the fan art is acceptable.
(sry if the question sounds weird, I couldn't find better words to describe; god damn it, gotta refresh my vocabluary a bit lol)

that is correct - any medium is fine. If someone wants to sculpt a mutalisk and photograph it - more power to them.

Is it necessary to make wallpaper that shows story/timeline scenes?Can i make a wallpaper that shows some hero(karrigan,nova etc) or some units, conpound from other artworks(like leporelo)?and if only story/timeline scenes are allowed,that means that it could be for example some space battle, or artwork that shows battle conpound with other artwork, death of evermind, invasion on Aiur,karrigan transformation

^ Don't quote me, but I believe it supposed to be used as a desktop wallpaper. Whether you call it art vs wallpaper is your call. Just make something big enough to use as a desktop background. As I said though, I'm new here, just saying what I think :P

Thanks for answering my questions in the other threads everyone.

As this involves Starcraft, I can predict the answer:

The results will be released when they're ready. :D

The deadline isn't till July 26th, so results would come within a couple days after that I'd think. I'm no expert though.

Hey staff, I know this is kind of a redundant question now, but I just wanted to clarify one last time before I get too far along with my artwork.

The piece doesn't need to be based off a critical moment in the campaign to qualify as an eligible entry, right?

i.e. like the hydralisk sculpture mentioned earlier, staff will be relatively lenient as long as my entry starcraft related, correct? Basically, my question is, would I still qualify if I did some original, but non-campaign-critical pieces like these (http://images.google.com/images?hl=en&q=starcraft+fan+art&btnG=Search+Images&gbv=2&aq=f&oq=starcraft+fan+ar)?

I just wanted to clarify before I get started, because I wouldn't want to craft a non-campaign starcraft theme, only to find out it wasn't eligible =P

Thanks! :)

Warbringer
07-28-2009, 11:44 AM
I guess it will be between 10 and 20, maybe around 14 or something like that but not more. I'd burst out in laugher if it was really just 4 in the end. (worst scenario would be 5 entries tough, since there would be 4 winners and 1 "loser" ... oh boy)

I submitted some art I painted up in PS. I hope it went through.

dynamiK-
07-28-2009, 03:29 PM
^ Yeah, I Photoshoped my two wallpapers.

So up to this point I'm counting about 7-8 of us who have posted within the last 3 pages of this topic... So yeah, I'd agree with the idea that there were about 12-18 people who entered.

Unfortunately, one of the best entries has been on the members DeviantArt page for years (I know because I once admired it). We'll probably have to disqualify it. We wanted something more or less just for this contest. But then again, we weren't that specific - so we haven't decided.

I think he should get 5th and be given a Beta Key as well, while 1-4 still receive keys.

Yes, I know it's not my place to decide, I'm just saying what I'd support. :p

I also know I need to calm down and take some slow, deep breaths.
