THE RECKLESS DECK/ART ORDER
Gaming Figurines Challenge

For those of you who don’t know, RECKLESS DECK is a character-creating, genre-smashing card deck. It generates endless ideas for character creation for artists & other creatives interested in Sci Fi & Fantasy. Reckless Deck also currently has a campaign on KICKSTARTER for its Volume 2 SEQUEL (you can have a look here:)
 
 
Reckless Deck & ArtOrder would like to introduce a new character design challenge! In the course of our Kickstarter, we have unlocked stretch goals that will introduce not just the Reckless Deck: Volume 2, but also THE APPRENTICE PACK (the Reckless Deck for kids), and RECKLESS DECK: WORLDS, the Deck exclusively for Environment Art. But in the new wave of stretch goals we’ve just released, we’ve introduced a reward that’s a little different: four exclusive gaming miniatures based on Reckless Deck characters. With it, we saw a terrific opportunity for a contest, in which the winning artists will have their character designs made into three figurines for the set!

The Art Order - Warriors and Amazons: A Tribute to Boris Vallejo and Julie Bell

Boris and Julie have rocked the art world for years. They are most well known for their powerful images of stoic warriors, beautiful amazons and fearsome monsters. Their exquisite use of color and texture elevate the imaginative realism of their works. Their works can be seen through out the fantasy and sci-fi illustration world. They have worked for virtually every major publishing house with a SFF line, and can be seen on album covers, comics, video game art, motion picture advertising, and my favorite annual calendar.

The Art Order - ArtRage Colour and Texture

If you are a digital artist, there are a ton of options out there for you to experiment with, but ArtRage captured my attention a while back with I started seeing the images that Robh Ruppel was creating with it. Check out the "ArtRage 2" blog entry - the piece is a great study, but what I really like is what he wrote - "it's great if you want to train your eye and practice color matching the hard way." So when the folks at ArtRage contacted me about my potential interest at teaming up for an ArtOrder Challenge,

The Art Order - Reckless Deck Challenge

The challenge is pretty straight forward - create a image based upon the random set of cards you are assigned (details here). I suggest playing it straight. Joke concepts kind of dilute the usefulness of this resource - though doing a serious take on your card set isn't a requirement. There will be four categories that you can enter in, and you can enter one image per category.

The Art Order - Can Personal Work Pay?

I am looking for up to 4 artists to join my roster of artists doing limited edition “posters” for the ArtOrder store. I figured, what better way to find 4 artists that would like to participate in my “poster movement” than to have a ArtOrder Challenge around the concept - then everyone will have a great reason to do some personal work, and have the potential for turning it into something with some great potential.

The Art Order - Ghost From My Past - A Jeff Easley Homage

I could only think of one way I could do that - through ArtOrder. Join me in paying homage to a man that directly influenced the fantasy illustration and gaming genre.
