Last year we had so many amazing artists contribute to the tribute book. We got to see some artists that were unknown to us produce some heavy hitting fan art that blew us all away.
So we are glad to run this challenge again to celebrate SSV (shadowloo Showdown V 2014) we had so much good feedback from the artists and fans that we would like to take a second to thank you all.
Put your creative minds into gear and show us what you got. Rules and outlines are basically the same as last year, have a read below
Shadowloo Showdown is the largest fighting fame tournament in the Southern hemisphere. This is our 5th year and we are back once again with a challenge for our friends, fans in the art world!
The tribute will be for the amazing games that motivate us to become what we are today; games such as Street Fighter, Marvel vs. Capcom 3, and other new comers like Injustice! We want to capture the heart of the battle by using YOUR creativity to achieve this, either drawing your favorite characters mixed with your token tournament players (example, Sagat as an actual Tiger, Retired Bison, Tokido puppeteering Akuma in an illustration) or M. Bison standing over Magneto’s dead body,. Think outside the box, creativity is endless!
We have supplied you with the logos of the event in the Themed Content section.
The selected artworks will be printed in a custom made book alongside the artist that made it, and a few of the top entries will get a copy of the published book! With that being said, everyone who is selected will get their artwork promoted on our networks and also receive a digital copy of the book when it is released.
We want to see your unique take of the fighters and tournament lifestyle!
