SM Kickstarter Boss Fight Art Contest!

in steemmonsters •  11 days ago

In case you haven't heard, over 27K booster packs sold yesterday! 👏 👏 👏

The @steemmonsters Alpha pre-sale is officially over and with the SM Kickstarter having met it's initial pledge of 50K, we're onto the Beta cards, which are due to be released on October 1st. Not only did the KS campaign CRUSH its initial goal, but at the 150 backers mark, the SM community also defeated the level 1 Boss fight, which unlocked $10 daily SM Tournaments!

One boss down, one to go!

Level 2 Boss Fight - '30 Articles Of SM Themed Clothing' 🤸‍♀️

Will we defeat him in time? I sure hope so!

...And one random Bikini top

Now that's out of the way, let's see how I made it!

Step 1 - L. Dragon - Outline 🖌

I started off with a plain black bikini top and used white for the base outline, as it provides the perfect primer for layering colors onto.

Forgot to stop and take a progress picture before I started painting the horns, whoops...😕 They were done using straight yellow acrylic for the highlights & a mixture of burnt yellows for their cast shadows.


Step 2 - L. Dragon - Color Application 🎨

Starting with my darks first (navy blue & purple), I filled out the main body shadows & tongue, before moving to the lighter blue for the highlights.

The wings were done with a mixture of white & light-blue; this mix was also used as the color base for the lightning, with a few drops of the liquid pearlescent for added shimmer.

Step 3 - SM Logo - The Finishing Touch 💪

Unlike the dragon, the SM logo was primed using straight yellow acrylic. I then mixed WC orange, WC burnt yellow & acrylic gold, to achieve a subtle transition from dark to light whilst again, adding a slight sheen. ✨

I'm glad ye' loike eet matey! :3

I think that steemmonsters selling so many booster packs is a massive achievement first of all. It's great to see any of the projects on the STEEM blockchain doing well as it bodes well for all of us here in the future.

As for your art, i love it. The painting is amazing and the bikini top in total came out very well. If that's for the competition you should definitely move to the next level.

Thanks a lot for your kind words m8, and I totally agree, the success of any project on here is GREAT for the collective as a whole. When @crystalhuman and I started back it March, it was sink or swim for us and being a complete newb to cryptocurrency was hella scary... There was also a lot of negative media going around due to whales powering down and wot-not, so when we found out about steemmonsters (being avid gamers ourselves) we were hooked!

"Wait, you mean we can play a card game and potentially win STEEM/SBD?! WUTTTTT?!" XP

I love the gaming aspect that it has and the main reason I stuck around here originally was one called steemgar. It was sponsored by cryptoctopus at the time and had a great community around it. There is also super8ballclub which I still play a good bit and has a decent payout.

It can take a while to find your place on here but I think that if you can and if you get involved with that community you're hooked. And the more time you spend here the more addicted you become to steemit and crypo in general.

There was also a lot of negative media going around due to whales powering down and wot-not.

There will always be negatives no matter what you are a part of. When I joined it was the flagging wars that were an issue. But that all stopped. And so will this story too. I just like the site so will be sticking around regardless of any rumours.

Steemgar is fun as hell! I haven't played in a while, but those upvotes really helped us out in the early days on my @ascendedmonkey account.

I concur, regardless of what you're doing someone, somewhere will probably have something fkt to say about it; might as well do what works for you and block out the rest. With anything, good or bad, if you look hard enough you're sure it. :)

I don't remember your other account and I was there through most of steemgar. It's a pity it stopped. Like you said.....

Absolutly true. If it wasn't for that I might not still be here. Still there are lots of other things developing now to keep us entertained. Some of them are bound to take off.

Couldn't agree with you more. I was around april/may this year, that we found out about steemgar and we stopped because the payouts started getting smaller and smaller. :( But! Thankfully there were so many other side projects going on (whaleshares, steemmonsters, etc) that I could see budding potential literally everywhere and so here we are today.lol Time will tell, but I'm definitely optimistic about what the future holds for this platform & crypto in general. :)

If only you were there at the very start when the payouts were $2-$4 for each winner. That was the very beginning though and didn't last for very long. Back the there were only about three players who won pretty much all the games but they made a few hundred in those couple of weeks. Not bad for playing a game. It's a pity it's gone, even just for the fun side of it but as you said there are so many other projects that you can get involved in and some that you can earn a bit too.

My baby at the moment is the engagement and curation league. It charts accounts over a variety of engagement categories and has a weekly league for it. There are some prizes for the best participants and you tend to earn a bit while competing too. I've noticed the difference since i joined it and have seen my account grow a lot more rapidly than it ever had before.

Nice!! Seriously, that is some damn good artwork :) Very cool entry. Am I reading above correctly when it says today is the deadline?

·

Indeedily-do, unfortunately the last I heard we were still a good ways off the target #, but I do hope that we get another crack at it. I've got a few more SM themed design ideas up my sleeve and even more articles of clothing to try them on! :P
But considering this one took me 2 days to complete, I'd definitely need more time to make a few. :/

·
·

Definitely a tight timeline, I look forward to seeing future SM design items from you though :P

·
·
·

Thanks matey, I'm definitely looking forward to doing more! :P

·
·

I'll try to catch one sometime. I'm pretty bad with remembering to do stuff here on time though, so it might not ever happen. Looking forward to seeing more of your work, however!

I know what you mean. I've been following the steemmonsters art contests since they started and this was the first one that I've managed to enter on time. XP
Though to be fair, it was also the first one I really felt confident about entering, since I have a fair amount of experience with customizing things (been doodling on school bags & shoes since high-school)

There's supposed to be a digital art contest coming up as well though, so I'm gonna start prepping from now.lol Can't promise anything though.... #artistproblems

Wow! That's awesome!

I can't believe you just drew the lightning dragon like that... made it look so simple.

Someone download me some skills

·

If only it were that simple, man I'd be so many different things. XP
