Digital art software Corel Painter has debuted an exciting new challenge for comic/manga illustrators, concept artists, animators, and anyone who enjoys crafting amazing character designs with its Epic Character Contest. Now live on Drawcrowd and running through April 14, the Contest gives entrants a chance at three amazing prize packs filled by Wacom, Nintendo, ImagineFX, Smith Micro/Celsys, Corel, etc., and great professional opportunities.
The Epic Character Contest challenge is quite self evident: create the most epic original character ever using the industry-leading apps Corel Painter and/or Clip Studio Paint Pro, and submit it along with a narration of your inspiration or the character’s unique backstory through drawcrowd.com/epiccharacter (rules and details on the page).
“Corel Painter and Clip Studio Paint Pro are both extremely powerful art apps. By bringing these tools together, artists will discover a sketch and paint workflow that’s a phenomenal game-changer,” said Chris Pierce, Product Manager for Digital Arts at Corel. “We want to show off your most epic original character creations and we’ve put some awesome prize packs up for grabs – plus, this is your chance to see your art appear in ImagineFX!”
