Hello everyone. :)

I thought it was about time to at least start thinking about artnouveau’s next contest. So I’ve set up a donation pool on my profile to collect 500 points for prizes. When the 500 points have been gathered I’ll throw in a three-month premium subscription to the 1st place winner as well as one month journal feature to the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners on top. And then the contest will be announced.

EDIT: The 500 points for prizes have been collected, and the contest is almost ready to begin! Thank you to those of you who have donated points as well as to those who have offered other prizes. :)

:bulletgreen: If you would like to have a final part in deciding the theme, please copy the three themes from the list below that you would most like to work with and send them in a note to the group. (Make sure to include the number they have on the list below, but order them according to which you would like the most.)

Themes

Out of the themes that have been suggested so far, the following are the ones that are still in consideration:

1: Take a non-Art Nouveau piece of art and remake it in the style of an Art Nouveau artist.

2: Mash-up: Take the styles of two Art Nouveau artists (ex. Mucha and Klimt) and combine them in one new work.

3: Draw an advertisement poster in Art Nouveau style.

4: Choose a song and turn it into a visual Art Nouveau work.

5: Make an Art Nouveau work featuring a mythological being that is half beast/half human. (Could be combined with theme 2.)

6: Choose a Zodiac Sign to use in making an Art Nouveau work. (Could be combined with theme 2.)

7: Choose a Star Constellation to use in making an Art Nouveau work. (Could be combined with theme 2.)

8: Choose a Major Arcana Archetype to use in making an Art Nouveau work. (Could be combined with theme 2.)

9: Choose a film/movie or tv series and make an advertisement poster in the style of an Art Nouveau artist.

10: Make a visual Art Nouveau work where something mechanical is the main focus. (Could be combined with theme 1, 2 or 3.)

11: Badass Manly Art Nouveau: Take one (or more) of the toughest male characters you can think of and depict him (them) in Art Nouveau style.

More than one of these themes may be combined, but in the end there will be only one theme. You can still suggest new themes, just comment below. :)

Hi, as stated in the new journal, theme number 4 is not eligible for the third contest as it was used for the second contest. Voting for the theme for the new contest has not begun yet, but suggestions for what should be included in the new vote can be commented on the new journal. You are welcome to suggest any theme you can think of including themes from the list above (but excluding theme four). :)

My vote goes for number 4. I think turning songs into nouveau art would yield interesting results.

6, 4, 3 in order from my favourite to least being so. I'm totally pumped. So, just to be certain, the contest hasn't quite started yet (the themes need to be narrowed-down)?

Not yet, as you say, the theme needs to be decided. I'll make a new journal once the contest begin so that it will be absoulutely clear. :)

Wow these all sound wonderful! I can't wait to see what's chosen. :D I'm excited by the zodiac, tarot, and the song lyrics ideas the most!

I have a silly suggestion...and I'm sharing it with no expectation it will be used. I'm calling it "Badass Manly Nouveau". With so many popular pieces including graceful floating swirls and women, I'm curious if there is any way at all to take the toughest male characters we can think of and depict them in art nouveau style! It could be original characters or characters from things already in existence...the manlier, the better the challenge!

It's something I've always wanted to try, anyways. XD

Awesome! It would be neat to see someone try this topic. Manly men and nouveau CAN mix! Here's hoping people try it so we can prove this fact in hilarious and awesome ways. :D

I'm just a watcher, but how about:
1. Self portrait in art nouveau, which could combine many elements so as to better visualize the person.
2. Or drawing a creature (small butterfly or insect etc...) whose detail is hard to see at first glance, and creating pattern in art nouveau! Call it Small Comes to Life In Art Nouveau!

Bit-sinna Featured By Owner Oct 15, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
As a watcher your suggestions are as welcome as the ones from Art Nouveau creating members.:)

Your first suggestion is a bit too close to the theme from the previous contest to be chosen this time. But your second suggestion sounds interesting, could you elaborate on what you had in mind? :)

:iconamberrant:
Amberrant Featured By Owner Oct 15, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
Well, how I think of it is that you think of a part of a simple object or creature. Something that you would just dismiss as commonplace and nothing more, like a shoe lace.
Then you would zoom in imaginatatively on it. You would expand on the texture of the lace, give resound detail the surroundings. Maybe personify the subject.
Now I think of it, it might be too much of a hassle :hmm:

Another idea was using art nouveau to depict a life's story, but put that image in a person's eye (draw of course).

It has already been suggested, but as I said to the previous person: There's no way of knowing when the contest will start or end, so a more time-independent theme would probably be best. :)

5: Make an Art Nouveau work featuring a mythological being that is half beast/half human.
6: Choose a Zodiac Sign to use in making an Art Nouveau work.
7: Choose a Star Constellation to use in making an Art Nouveau work.
8: Choose a Major Arcana Archetype to use in making an Art Nouveau work.

Those are my favourites. Possibly the song one too, but almost all my work is inspired by music so it wouldn't really push me to do an interesting theme the way the others would. You could also technically combine 6&7 because 7 encompasses 6. 5 Might see a lot of furry pieces submitted (that's fine if that's what you're looking for) so if you want more centaur-types instead of catgirls you'll have to be specific in the rules.

Now that I think about it nr. 7 seems a bit to open or big (to many constellations to chose from), but I'll let it be for now. A theme musn't be to narrow nor to open.

With theme 5 I'll just have to stress that it has to be a "real" mythological being (with name and mythical story) and not just a random combination of a person and an animal. :)

Well machines of the original period such as airships or cars, they are featuered in Art Deco the contemprainious style this is not a suprise as it was essentially the inustrial design style whereas Art Nouveau was the artistic design style. It woyld be nice to see how members interpret say a cruise ship, something big in that period, in an Art nouveau style instead of the typical Deco style it would have been in.
