Original Contest Details Follows:
We are excited to announce our latest Competition on Life Is Strange Fans: an Alt Character Fan Art Contest with great prizes up for grabs including all of the official Life Is Strange Clothing merch!
THE CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED.
We’re looking for Fan Art that depicts a character from Life Is Strange in an alternate way. Please check the amazing promo art at the top by our Staff Artist and Mod Chloe Price AKA Mai, for some great examples. Altogether there we have ‘Punk Kate’, ‘Skater Max’,’Bookworm Chloe’, ‘Preppy Frank’ plus ‘Poodle Pompidou’, ‘Trendy Warren’, ‘Jock Nathan’ and ‘Cheerleader Victoria’.
We think you’ll agree that it’s an amazing piece and we hope it inspires you to come up with your own variations of our beloved Characters. Don’t forget to check out Mai’s DeviantArt for more of her fantastic work here.
We’d like to thank our Mod FireWalkWithMe for coming up with the great concept of an Alt Character Fan Art Contest. And thanks to Square Enix and the Community Manager Toby Palm for supporting us and helping to make this Contest possible.
Here’s a short framing story to set the scene of the Contest, thanks to our Staff Member, Blackwell Podcast’s Joey:
“How many times are you going to do this?” Max asked herself, wiping away the blood running out of her nose. “You can’t keep changing time!”. She had lost track of how many photos she had jumped through. She found herself counting on her fingers subconsciously. “One more time, and I know I can get it right… I have to!”
Max focused again, her vision blurring as she traversed space-time in an attempt to correct her best friend’s fate. Another small change here, and she was sure Chloe could be happy. She came to, again wiping a trickling of blood from her nose. As she gained her composure, she realized she was in Jefferson’s classroom again.
Glancing out the windows, she gasped as each pane revealed a different course for her Blackwell Academy cohorts. She ran to the nearest window, shocked. “Wait…” Max paused, double taking to remove doubt of what she was seeing, “Does Kate have a… NOSE-RING!?”
The main prizes for winning the Fan Art Contest will be the Blackwell Bigfoots Hoodies. In order to ensure artists submitting get the size they actually need there will be 3 Galleries to upload to, one for each size: Small, Medium and Large. You can only upload your art to one of them, but as well as making sure you get the correct size, it also means you could have a better chance of winning as you’ll be competing in smaller groups.
There will however, also be an ultimate prize of the Life Is Strange Guys Bundle or Life Is Strange Girls Bundle depending on the winner’s gender/choice. The ultimate winner of the contest will be one of the 3 winners in each of the size categories. So the ultimate winner gets the whole Bundle, the runners up get the Hoodie.
There are a few rules for entering this Contest so please take note before submitting your art:
- The Fan Art must be 2D, and created using either traditional drawing/painting methods or digital painting. No 3D renders are eligible for this contest.
- The Fan Art should depict only 1 character. This will make it easier to judge winners as we will only be comparing single characters.
- The Fan Art must depict an alternate version of an existing character from Life Is Strange. No original character creations will be accepted.
- No crossovers with other franchises are allowed, including those published by Square Enix (for example, ‘Chloe as Lara Croft’). The characters should be generalised variations such as ‘Punk Kate’ or ‘Sci-fi Villain Jefferson’. To give another example, ‘Steampunk Nathan’ is acceptable, but ‘Nathan as Booker DeWitt’ with all his accessories, etc. is not.
- You can only submit to 1 of the size categories. This also means you cannot submit 3 different Fan Art pieces to each of the size categories.
- You must submit your Fan Art before the closing date: Friday 27th May
- You can enter both the Fan Art Contest and the Prize Draw Contest if you wish but the same person can’t win both.
