Well, a few ideas.

2 person team up, one does lines and the other does colors.

Reinterpret a piece of your favorite old artwork. Must be at least 5 years old.

Contest wide sketch exchange? Every participant posts something for the other contestants to reinterpret.

Gender-bender? So girly it's MANLY. Or vise-versa.

Ultimate badass


I dunno...

Like...a collab? Those are fun to do, seems like a pretty good idea. Don't really see a lot of collab contests going around.

A charity based contest... not sure how it'd work, but it would be good to make things for a charity. I know in Tucson there are a lot of autism-based art charities where themes and proceeds are geared in that direction... or that you donate your artwork to a local charity of some sorts.

I dunno how it'd work on here, but it could be an idea.

Something that requires text/typography would be interesting. I think typography is often overlooked as art or part of a piece. Doing something that requires a thoughtful use of text would be interesting.

i believe this was hiddentruths idea but i would like to put it in here before it gets forgotten or discarded.

A collab where one writes the story (short) and the other draws the story down in a sequential art form... maybe a max of a few pages...

I like the idea HiddenTruth made that just-gary brought up. Though I do believe the artists outnumber the writers here.

The problem with collab contests (and I've seen it before) is that a lot of people are excited and sign up. But not many teams actually come through and have an entry for the contest. I imagine it's because both are depending on one another and if one is lazy or forgetful etc, then there goes their chance of winning. (or even participating)

While they seem cool in writing, I believe it's highly improbable there will be a high turn-out for such a contest.

~More Ideas~

Onomonopia: Every entry is based on a crazy word that 'imitates' the sound it makes. ('Moo' and 'quack' for less intense examples)

Self-Portrait?: A dramatization of you working on this entry for this very contest.

The problem with collab contests (as mentioned earlier already) is that with five or so active members creating teams of two is suicide.

AznPB, did you mean onomatopoeia?

I really want to have the cake contest.

Didn't we used to get those types of contest results before?

"Draw a Christmas pic" = Sexy Christmas babe falling out of her top

I like your idea.

League of Legends champion. I don't play the game but I know of it and I know of how creative their designs can get. I say design a champion you would have in the game if you had the power to do so (which you might, I head they take fan designs all the time if they're good enough.)
You design the look, name, write a short but detailed back story, and a list of powers. (Nothing too godlike please.)
You're graded on originality and quality of design and back story (nothing cliched, how appealing they are), and how umm.. well, neat the powers are.
You don't have to be too familiar with the game as I myself am not, but it's really just a good way of saying "create a fantasy character" contest.

Done this already, do I get a cookie? By the way thinking of original skills and balancing them is a whole new area of development I hardly think there is any user here who could properly judge on that (there may be exceptions but as with everything, people tend to think that they are the exception)

Also RIOT is not as gamer friendly as it tells.

I don't know if you had this already, but my suggestion would be a traditional contest. As in just traditional media allowed, like watercolour, oils and such.

Well, most of you use digital media, so it might not be that good an idea.

Otherwise as a topic I'd suggest " The end of the world" or more like " How do you think the world will end ?" ," What will happen on Doomsday?", something like that.

... maybe a little cliched, but I'd like it.

This sounds fun, too. I can't imagine it as a contest, though. But it would be a nice way to see how different everyone interprets an idea.

And this.Maybe .... take a part of a song, draw a corresponding picture to it and include the chosen part of the lyrics?


Or something .....

Well, that would be my ideas.
