Welcome to the August sketch battle! This battle will be judged by Jurne: "The emphasis of this battle sketch should be letters. Oil painters often look at their works in progress in a mirror to make sure that they appear correct, even when they are backwards. With that said, the word "science" should be drawn backwards for the sketch. Good letters are good letters, even when drawn backwards. Extra points will be awarded if original characters are used, and if the whole sheet of paper is colored in (no white paper is shown)." Prizes 1st Place: 1 Ironlak Diamond Pack + 2 Ironlak Strikers Sets + Ironlak Sketchbook 2nd Place: Ironlak Strikers Set + Ironlak Sketchbook 3rd Place: 1000 Forum Credits Rules Word to Sketch: "SCIENCE" (the word should read backwards) Colored markers, pens, and pencils may be used. Include non-backward text in the sketch to insure that the sketch has not been reversed in Photoshop. No Photoshop. Deadline: 31 August 2012 Submission: Scan your sketch and e-mail it to this address: firstname.lastname@example.org Rename your file name with YOUR NAME. Example: myname.jpg It can be your real name, your username or an AKA. File submitted without the artist name will be deleted. The battle is open to everyone, worldwide. Good luck to all!
