About the Image Challenge
Online communities have proven to be an amazing resource for artists. The Gnomon Workshop has had the unique opportunity to inspire, motivate and train artists from all walks of life and all around the globe, and our forum is a great place for you to share your work with other artists who have a passion for learning and community.
Every month we create a new challenge based on specific themes. Our judges select four winners from the 2D Concept and 3D Concept categories (8 total), who will receive up to 25 Gnomon Workshop DVDs (winners get to choose of course)!
What criteria are used to pick the winner?
The winners are chosen based on our judges' personal criteria, however we often award prizes to artists whose CONCEPTS or IDEAS are excellent, regardless of technical execution. While first place awards tend to bias to a combination of concept AND technical merit, we often choose winners who show POTENTIAL. We love to see new artists emerge, and this is a good way to give artists exposure while rewarding them for their talents.
Gnomon DVDs are a staple in our libraries at Disney Feature Animation. Artist training is very important at Disney, and has been since the days of Walt. We rely on the DVDs to supplement our classes and to provide a more personalized schedule for the production artist seeking to broaden their skill sets. — , Manager of Artistic & Professional Dev, Disney Feature Animation
