The Pillaging Picasso - WINNERS ANNOUNCED

Winners announced in this linked thread

Some would argue that the last few centuries have given us a wealth of artistic delights. Art galleries with their painted treasures displayed for us to enjoy. Private collections, museums, attics. Artists living in grandeur, artists dying in poverty, painting and daubing and scraping and splattering and dabbing and dotting with passion for their satisfaction and our enlightenment. Looking at these masterpieces, these awe-inspiring works, I find myself breathing faster, standing taller; these world-famous paintings reach deep down inside me, and touch my soul, and my soul leaps and cries "What's with all the fruit and ladies? Where are the pirates, dudes?".

Your challenge this month is to choose a famous painting and to piratify it. Your changes can be subtle or obvious, simple or complex.

There will be two categories in this contest - "Created" and "Photoshopped".

Created
For entry in the Created category, the picture you submit should be all your own (in execution, that is). You select an original painting to base your work on, but the whole entry as submitted is created by yourself. This can be done fully by hand or computer-aided, but the work should be all yours.
Note: your entry should still be a parody of an existing well-known painting!
Note2: we've made some clarifications in the discussion about this category, to allow for entries that don't fit unambiguously in either category. The main distinction between the categories is that the Created category should be put together without using any part of the original picture. Existing images can be used from elsewhere, and put together to form a parody, but none of the original picture should be used. Acknowledgement of sources for existing art would be appreciated to save judging time.

Photoshopped
Entries in this category will be ones that use any or all of an image of the original painting. In this category, you may take a digital image of the original painting, and manipulate it to create your piratey version. If you are using any part of the original, you should submit your entry in this category.

Pesky Rules
* Maximum of one entry per player per category. i.e. you are allowed two entries if (and only if) one is Created and one is Photoshopped.
* Whichever category you are in, the original work you choose should be a painting rather than e.g. a sculpture. If you're creating something in real media, you can use paints or other media, but it should look basically like a painting!
* There will be three threads for this contest. This thread contains rules and discussion. Two entry threads will be created, one for the Created category and one for the Photoshopped category. The entry threads will be pruned mercilessly of any post that isn't an entry. If you have a comment on an entry, even if it's "I can't see that image", post in this thread with a link.
* I will only accept entries in the nominated entry threads, not by any other route.
* I reserve the right to remove or disqualify an entry for any reason, including (but not limited to) entries containing images inappropriate to this forum.
* Your prizes will be awarded to the pirate and ocean named with your entry.
* If you alter your entry, please edit the original post rather than adding a new one.
* You may edit your entry post up to the deadline but no later.

Submissions
Your entry should include the following information.

Pirate name
Ocean
Title of original painting
Artist of original painting

Title of your piratey version (if you wish to)
A very brief list of the media / software used in your submission.


You should then include a link to an image of the original painting that you are parodying, and a link to an image of your own piratey version of it. Note, I want links rather than images in the thread. Hosts like photobucket, imageshack and flickr all allow easy hosting of your images.

Click here to add an entry to the "Created" category.
Click here to add an entry to the "Photoshopped" category.


Deadline
12 noon PDT on Monday 29th May 2006.

Judging criteria
The winner is likely to be of high technical execution - whether that is original work or computer manipulation.
The winner is likely to be an entry that incorporates piratey features while retaining much of the original style and ambience of the original.

Grand Prizes
The winner of the Created category will win an octopus, in the winner's choice of color, other than white or black.
The winner of the Photoshopped category will win an octopus, in the winner's choice of color, other than white or black.
A number of runner-up prizes will also be awarded. The final list will be announced along with the results, but prizes are likely to include sleeping animals, rare furniture, trinkets and maybe even a Golden Ticket or two if I can persuade Young Master Pip!

Any other questions? Please ask and I'll do my best to answer and update the above information as necessary!

Edit: to add a clarification note to the Created category.
Edit2: to add a further clarification, following the discussions.

Re: The Pillaging Picasso - win an octopus (or two!)

Could I please remind people of these two things:

* No images in the entry thread, please. Links only.
* You must include a link to the original as well as a link to your version.


Thank you.

Re: The Pillaging Picasso - win an octopus (or two!)

Apollo you make me go *squeee.*
I know what I'll be doing for the week between finals and wandering off to thailand! Now if only I hadn't thrown away my art history notebooks from the last two semesters >.<;

Might I suggest a prize addition? It would be entirely fitting for you to throw in a few of your lovely apollo dolls for me to drool over and play kissy-face with us to admire. Just a thought ;D
No, I'm not.. entirely desperate..

Re: The Pillaging Picasso - win an octopus (or two!)

Another note to clarify, as I was asked a question on it. The "Created" category entries should still be parodies of existing well-known paintings. I'm not after your own original piratey paintings, I'm after parodies. In both categories, you choose an original work to base your entry on, but the difference between "Created" and "Photoshopped" is that in "Created", you are producing your parody from scratch rather than using a digital image of it as a starting point.

Re: The Pillaging Picasso - win an octopus (or two!)

2 questions:

First, I did a piraty version of the Last Supper as a commissioned work - original art, representing characters from the game . Could I submit that or does it have to be made specifically for this contest?

Secondly, can we enter more than once?

On the whole, I'd rather it was original for the contest, but I guess that as long as you haven't used the picture in a contest before, you can use it here if you need to.

As Kitt said, you are allowed one entry in each category if you wish.

Ideally, I'd like paintings (including frescos, ceilings, etc) but I'm willing to be reasonably broad in the definition of painting. Chalks, pastels, etc, aren't too far away from what I had in mind. The main thing is that they're basically two-dimensional works of art rather than three-dimensional.

I would rather it was a well-known work rather than a random image you find. I think we're more likely to appreciate changes to a work that we are already familiar with than from something that we've never seen before. Naturally, your definition of "well-known" could be much wider than mine, so I wouldn't say that I'd disqualify entries for it - just a comment that I think a well-known work is more likely to be successful.

Ok so just to be sure, my piratified version of that Leonardo Da Vincy is valid for the contest right? I'd like to know now while I have the time to work on something else and not just at the last minute....

So basicly, the answer is yes... you piece would be accepted.

Re: The Pillaging Picasso - win an octopus (or two!)

Ysanne's piece actually is a painting that the artist had problems with. It wouldn't dry. I believe this particular piece was one done by an apprentice and not him, though, but I could be wrong.

I believe that bloodwolf80 's Piratey Soup Entery would not be accepted. Am I correct?

Re: The Pillaging Picasso - win an octopus (or two!)

I plan to put some emotion, rather than humor into mine...

What do you have to say on the use of blood and gore? To keep it in a similiar mood to the original painting, I plan to have a severed limb or two...

Don't be silly. No one's ever even heard of Andy Warhol, and that's most certainly not one of his most well known pieces. Infact, pop-art retroactivly never even existed.

Why on earth not? I'm not sure I follow your reasoning.

Edit: Ah, ok. You don't recognise it? It's a very well-known painting, and absolutely an appropriate original work.

Re: The Pillaging Picasso - win an octopus (or two!)

What about using only parts of famous paintings? I'm not talking about piratifying a closeup of Mona Lisa's left eyebrow - but I guess it's ok that we only use parts of the original, if it's e.g. something like a huge fresco?

Re: The Pillaging Picasso - win an octopus (or two!)

I'm a bit worried... some people have posted entries with ideas very similar to or exactly the same as what I was going to do. Will I get accused of copying people, or not be able to get as many points because somebody else has already done it?

I am sure you won't get in trouble for copying. I know, when I thought of this, many things came to mind- Mona Lisa, Scream, etc. I am sure it was the same with lots of people. Ye can use the same painting, as long as ye don't mind yer entry being a bit cliché.
