Blog post Article first art challenge written by ibrahim lancoln nomad photo reference

Hello you free artist

Today I start to design a new feature on my blog and it involves you directly. 

I want to create a “Hall of Fame Gallery” where I will showcase the artworks that you create with my Photo Reference Packs 
(with your permission of course). 


To launch this new feature, I create an Art Challenge on the theme “Nomad” + a special sale.

1) Theme: Nomad

This step in my project is symbolic and to stay in my universe, the theme of the Challenge is “Nomad“. Which story will you tell us through this theme ? Your own journey, your dream travel, your own crafted adventure story or will you think out of the box and surprise us with your own interpretation of “Nomad” ?

3) Winning prizes

Anyone who submit their artwork will win a 20% Discount code available for all of my Photo Reference Packs on Gumroad and Cubebrush until 31st December 2018. 

For this first art challenge I will be the only judge because it will be easier for me to manage the whole event. For the future challenges I will develop the judging system, probably add a rating feature available for everyone and have professional judges from the game and movie industries.

  1. This sounds cool! I might just give it a go! Thank you!

    1. Do you have an idea of what you want to create ? I hope to see your art soon !

  2. is there any plans on getting middle east/ israel landscape images to create some cool kingdom of heaven type images. Heck I’d start doing cool biblical images in a Mullins like style with that. the Terrain there is so unique . Nobody films there, it always morocco or nowadays big film use Matera, italy. it feel similar but its not quite the same.

    1. Hi Joe, this is a good location and theme idea, I will keep that in mind and add that to my traveling list.
      For now I just know that I will travel to Istanbul in December 2019. If I go to the middle east before that, you’ll know 😉
