FUN COLLAB PROJECT #2 "Playing Cards"

COLORED PENCIL Magazine Collab Project #2
"Playing Cards"

We only have room for 18 artists to work together to create a beautiful floral image.
Reserve your spot • Create your Art • Get a Print of finished piece





$9.99
Participation Fee

Includes image files & finished print

Pre-Register

Start Date: 10/1
Submission Date: 11/10




HOW DOES IT WORK?
Each artist will receive an invitation to share a folder that will contain a high resolution photo of the entire picture and their own exclusive piece. These pieces were cut with a dimension of 3.5x2.5" - perfect for an ATC card but you can any size as long as the ratio is the same (example: 7x5", 10.5x 7.5").

You get 1 month to create and submit your part in colored pencil. Then scan or take a high resolution image of your finished work then just upload it into your shared folder for us to collect.

Once we have all the pieces we will assemble them to create a work of art. Each participating artist will receive a 12x18" UV protected print on thick 80# paper with a link to purchase more.

CAN I CHOOSE MY PICTURE/PIECE?
No, we will pick a photo piece at random for you - this is part of the fun and it keeps it fair.

WHY DO YOU CHARGE?
First of all we want to make sure only serious artists participate, the group is counting on you. Second, this will cover the price of your print and shipping costs related.

WHAT IF I CAN'T FINISH?
Obviously, we don't want you to get involved unless you can finish, it is only a small piece but if circumstances beyond your control come up we ask that you contact us as soon as you know so we can find a replacement. We will have an artist on stand-by to complete any last minute bail-outs.

IS THIS OPEN INTERNATIONALLY?
Yes! Anyone in the whole world can collaborate, and that is what makes this so much fun.
Additional International Shipping Rates MAY apply.

ADVANCED WINNER - Veronica Winters

WHY IT WON:  One of the things that I like about this photo reference is it gives the artist a chance to do these great reflective surfaces, which are not easy! Veronica, did an amazing job at making us want to reach out and touch and grab one of these servers by the handle and run our fingers across the tray to feel the raised details. Wonderful work!

BEGINNER WINNER - Victoria Electra

WHY IT WON: The realism of this entry is undeniable! The colors really pop and you didn’t shy away from using them in the reflections and shadows – adding a great touch. Even the wood grain was given special attention. I think you have graduated to the Advanced category!

JUNIOR WINNER - Grace Hopkins, age 14

WHY IT WON: We love that not only did you not steer away from all the details in this photo – including the tray, reflections of gold, and lace - but you also added your own special elements with the curtains and butterfly.  I look forward to seeing more from you, congratulations on your first win!
