September 21, 2017 - Devil of the details


Attention to details is a work-of-art regardless of your profession: software engineer, lawyer, boat constructor, nuclear power reactor operator, librarian, photographer, and so on.

In our newest assignment, we're looking for the best detail-oriented photographer and/or illustrator to win a creative pen tablet, Wacom Intuos Pro.

Before enrolling in this new challenge, you can take into account three basic things:

Detailed graphics and artwork in illustrations
Illustrations need to be intricate, when you look closer, more details would be revealed and a plain outline and fill job is not enough. Let's take an example of a fox in a jungle, hiding in the leaves, ready to jump on a robin. You have the leaves, trees, grass or the fox and robin characters detailed in their texture, hair, for example eyes with visible retina texture and ridges, leaves with veins and detailed texture, grass with separate blades and not just an outline, shadows falling in line according to light etc. So in essence, if you zoom in, the illustration appears rich, at least with 100% zoom.

Details in the image that reveal a semi-hidden message
So apart from the detailed artwork of the illustration, we can look at a hidden action, meaning, outcome to the story of the picture etc. So taking our fox example, the robin may be sitting on an animal trap partly covered by leaves. This would give depth to the story rather than the fox getting away with its prey, it may get trapped and what will happen to the robin? In essence, a story or meaning to the image that keeps the user wondering for the outcome. Another example can be Santa chasing a fat cat running with his bag of gifts with the reindeer holding him back nibbling at his red blazer while a lit-up New Year bomb is barely being contained in the gifts bag. So basically interesting stories with more than one angle. Depth is what we are looking at.

Vector versions
An amazing level of details deserves the maximum delivery quality, so only submissions accompanied by a vector version will be taken into consideration.


We're giving full freedom to your creativity. We know some guidelines will help you as well, so you might take the following into consideration:

       - Group shapes and characters neatly in layers/groups
       - Keep easy color change and easy edit ability in mind
       - Avoid using embedded raster images in illustrations
       - Try to add as much interesting detail to backgrounds, use white spaces only if you must
       - Close open paths and clean up stray objects before submission

Are you an obsessive-compulsive perfectionist? We're only joking. Keep calm and love details.
You might be the winner of a Wacom Intuos Pro tablet, $200 (second place) and $100 (third place) along with a branded t-shirt.

Upload the files as follows and mark them as "assignment files":

1. upload the image via FTP or via upload page.
