Idle Hands 2.0 by MechanicalPumpkin Idle Hands 2.0 by MechanicalPumpkin
Just over a year ago I made a Harlequin picture of a jester i dubbed Idle Hands. I guess this is what you might call new and improved.

Im also entering this in the annual art contest at my college. There are 3 categories: Traditional 2D art, 3d sculpture, and Photo/Digital. I think its shit that I hafta compete against photographers and photomanipulators but what can you do? Winner gets $50 (better than nothing) and better yet have their work published, as well as get their own show in the student gallery.

------*DD Edit*---------
I cant believe I got a daily deviation, this is so bad-ass im lost for words. Thank you, :iconkaotickell: for the suggestion
On a side note, because so many people are wishing me luck in the contest, it was 2 years ago... and not only did I not win, but this didnt even warrant a spot in the gallery. I was beat out by photography :(

Daily Deviation

Idle Hands 2.0 by ~MechanicalPumpkin "A perfect style, wonderful lineart, and a limited colour palette. Add to that, this is not an image/concept that you see every day." ( Suggested by kaotickell and Featured by Ikue )

Not really, but the kid who did them was in good with the judges(who in any case didnt like digital work anyway). He took pictures of city-scapes and scribbled crap on them with ball-point pen. Semi interesting, but certainly not mind-blowing :P

It did suck, I dont know why I thought for a second that my stuff would even be considered. Regardless, I did earn myself a DD for my trouble, and Id rather have a DD than a gallery showing anyday.

And thanks, it's good to hear that my work can be appreciated, regardless of genre/medium.

This is so unique and eye-catching, and SO well done! Yeah, it does suck that you had to compete witht things like that, there's not even a comparison between the two media and people are more inclined to be impressed with a gorgeous photo when they don't realise how much work really goes into a vector.

Knickers to them, this is awesome, and I could *very* easily see it being on items sold in Hot Topic!

Yeah it was an uphill battle competing with those other mediums, especially given the tastes of the artsy-elite running the contest, but forget them... Id much rather have a daily deviation :D

Thank you very much for the kind words
