Are you ready? The fourth ArtStation Community Challenge is now live and this time, we’re challenging you to imagine tales from the Old West.
The theme of the challenge is the Wild West, however, challengers can mix the theme with another genre so long as the submission has a Wild West feel to it and it takes place in that timeframe.
Like with previous ArtStation Community Challenges, the Challenge will be split into two phases. The first phase will focus on Concept art and the second phase will follow with Production art. Artists are free to enter both the Concept Art and Production challenge categories, but we know that many artists like to specialize in either concept or production art. Unique to ArtStation Challenges, we give production artists the opportunity to base their submission on concept art created by artists in the Concept Art challenges.
Phase 1 Categories
You can now register for the Concept art categories and begin the challenge.
We’ve enlisted a talented team of professional artists to help artists push themselves further and achieve more than they thought possible.
