Report content RSS feed Winners - RAW Power Concept Art Competition

20 days ago, we challenged our community of creators with the task of conveying "raw power" in the form of game concept art. Here are the results.

Posted by on

After literally tons of ideas and concepts were posted and discussed in the forums, the final 16 you see below managed to complete their piece of art in the timeline provided. The challenge proposed by Dell was to "put forth your best original concept imagery that showcases raw, unbridled, untamed power in any form". Here are the entries we received:

There can only be one winner, and that winner (decided by Mod DB staff judges is... *cue drumroll*)

Raw Power Concept Art

This entry from audi100 won because it followed all of the rules of the competition (is concept art, posted in the thread) and it conveys true raw power in the form of giant red demon. Audi100 will be receiving the $500 cash first prize thanks to Dell. Here are a few more entries we thought conveyed the idea of "raw power" brilliantly.

To all the other entrants, thanks for participating. I throughly enjoyed seeing the art evolve in the concepts thread, and learnt a lot from the process.

That is awesome thx so much :D.
Currently saving for a laptop so this is really helping me out :).

I'd either voted for the comic strip the devil rising, elezzarks image or oldyogurts entry. Tough decision as they all have theyr own appealing style and story which could make up a great game.

Wohoooooo

Congratulations Audi, I was instantly drawn to your piece the first time I saw it. Everyone else did a great job as well and it would be really cool if the concept art competition could become a regular thing on ModDB! (C'mon Dell, keep throwing us those cash prizes, ha ha)

The demon looks like a real nice guy, though. Maybe a bit retarded, but essentially he doesn't look evil. Maybe that was supposed this way, but him attacking the fortress with that big stoned smile on his face, is somewhat amusing.

I would more say that it is the look of someone who is beeing confident of easily winning the battle while at the same time enjoying what he is doing. The eyes convey a feeling of thirst for more power. The reason it might look abit retarded would be that the eye to the right should have had it's pupil slightly lower to be in sync with the left eye. I'd say that eyes are the hardest part to make when drawing a picture.

As stated above the money will probably be spend for a laptop. Buy maybe a Wacom A5 as my current tablet is pretty used up already :P.

@ Sinking yeah he should look like he is having fun destroying that fortress. So not by all means evil. And yes the eyes are slightly asymetrical, did notice that after Submission so that was not intended.

Thank you all for the Comments/Congratulations :)

20 days is a bit short for a competition like this (a month would be better) and this comp wasn't given as long on the front page ticker as the first one. With that in mind I wonder how many other entries we might have seen with that extra 10 days and more promotion.

Well, no, not literally... (the constant misuse of "literally" is a pet peeve of mine).
