Splinterlands Art Contest Week 215!

Splinterlands Art Contest Week 215!

Steemit.png

This is the weekly art contest for Splinterlands fanart and Splinterlands inspired original artwork. We love to see your creations that are inspired by the game and our amazing cards and characters. We have some awesome players and artists in our community and it's inspirational to see the influence of Splinterlands on all the content created for our contests.

We offer the potential for some great curation upvotes from the official Splinterlands account from our diligent curators as well as some wonderful prizes for the selected winners. You don't have to have cards or play the game to participate. You also don't have to be a professional artist to participate! We do try to honor the effort that everyone puts into giving this contest their best try.

Due to some ongoing issues regarding plagiarism and multi-account usage we have recently updated some of our rules and guidelines and being a bit more strict on some of our expectations is necessary.

We encourage everyone to give this contest an opportunity to encourage their own creativity and participation. Here is how to make sure your entry is valid!
Please read our updated terms and conditions of participation in this contest.

Creations which may include, but aren't limited to:

  • Drawings
  • Paintings
  • Digital Art
  • Comics
  • Logos
  • Blog Dividers
  • Blog Footers
  • New Card Ideas
  • Mixed Media Art
  • Sculpture
  • Needlework
  • Dolls
  • Computer Generated Art
  • Cited and Sourced Mashups

Rules for Submission


  • Post your creation on your own Hive account in any community you like - the winning packs will be sent to the account you submit to this contest

  • Entries must be the participants own original art. Plagiarism in any form will not be tolerated. All inspiration or unoriginal source material must be cited and sourced. Using art from any other source than your own original creative process, unless cited and sourced, will result in you being muted in the Splinterlands Community and being excluded from any and all curation or participation in future contests.

  • Creativity will be factored into the possibility of curation or being a winner in the contest. Simply copying or tracing the cards and the exact Splinterland art that already exists will factor into your chances.

  • Please describe what card or character you are using as your inspiration and show some steps of your artistic creative process! If you are making an original character tell us. If you are using a card or character for your art tell us which one.

  • One entry per person or account per Weekly Art Contest. Curation is only available twice per seven days. This includes all other Splinterlands contests. So, drop your entry wisely.

  • Anyone found using more than one account to enter the contest will be muted in the community and banned from all curation and the possibility for participation in future contests.

  • Link your post's URL in the comments of this contest post.

  • Do not embed your link.

  • Include a picture with your link in the comments

  • Upvotes are not guaranteed and are up to the curator's discretion. Creativity and Effort are two main factors in deciding curation values.

  • As mentioned before, just copying or tracing the card characters and recoloring them will be minimally rewarded or not at all.

  • Photoshopped collages without actual art will be considered less original creatively speaking and curated not as much as crafted art.

  • Not including your progress steps will exclude you from winning or being curated. Not citing and sourcing any inspirational sources that are not your own original content will result in a ban from future participation and being muted in the Splinterlands community.

  • Prizes will be sent out a few days after the contest results are announced

The Deadline for the Weekly Art Contest is Saturday, at 5:00 PM CST

  • Did you miss the deadline or enter too late? No worries... you can just add your entry by submitting your comment with your URL link and attached image of your art the next day in the comment section of the next Weekly Splinterlands Art Contest Post. As long as it's still within the payout period of posting... it's considered a valid entry, even if you have the wrong weekly contest number in your title.

10 Booster Packs will be split between the winners!!!

Each week's first-place winner will also have their art featured on the official Splinterlands Instagram account.

This is absolutely amazing. However based on your description of the work, isn't this just an ai generated photo that you made by choosing a few words? If that's the case, I don't think this counts as an original work since it is not handmade. I could be wrong though. Feel free to correct me if I misunderstood your process!

Greetings, @shadow346 !

I disagree, still I fully understand your opinion. Actually is a common reaction from established organizations of artists. This controversy might come from fear that AI will patronize the "new art", and can be fully justified.

Maybe a bit more words will manage to change your view... if "handmade" is the term to define original art creation, then we will need to exclude many well established forms of art - from photography, film industry, some parts of electronic music, etc... But if we define original art as "human made", then things become more foggy... Art generated by AI are drawings coming from an neural network trained to link notions described in a formal description language to a picture that can be considered "beautiful" by a human mind. In the training phase tones of pictures are used, together with a description of each image. feeding this, is a human act. Once trained, the AI algorithm must be executed with a new input set of data - some random numbers (seed) and a descriptive text, which is also "human made". The quality of this data is key for a creative result. Then, the AI can generate an infinite number of different output. All this must be curated, descriptive text must be adapted, all again a "human touch".

In the past, being an artist required a lot of skills - with the help of computers and new technology (e.g. paint mixing machines) this gets out of the top priority, and focus moves on creativity. Have a look at masterpieces created by Piet Mondrian in his second half period (he invented Neoplasticism). At that time it was called "new art". Or let's have a look at Barnett Newman who is regarded as one of the major figures of Abstract Expressionism. Also "new art".

Should we stop inventing in art?
I say no!
