Hello Artists and Art Lovers ❤

The contest Art of Love has ended. After 2 weeks, there were 96 artworks posted for this contest. I appreciate the precious time, passion and effort you have put into your art for the contest. I’m so proud of you all for contributing great art and adding great value on the Steem blockchain.

Art seems subjective but for quality curation, we have to make judgements based on these 8 objective judging criterias.

  1. The subject matter of the artwork: artwork have to meet the rules of the contest (no repost on Steem, no NSFW, no plagiarism art, …)
  2. Composition: The way the subject matter is framed, the placing of the other elements as well as the prospective shown.
  3. Techniques, degree of difficulty: How the artist manages the lines, shade, definition and use of the art medium. Also take into consideration of the time and effort needed to create the artwork, a few hours for simple artwork versus a few months for a masterpiece.
  4. Drawing anatomy: The fundamental skill, comes from the study and the talent of the artist. Their ability to capture accurately the whole body structure and also in every detail like hands and fingers in living subjects.
  5. Light: The impression given by the lighting in the artwork, the ability to use light and shade to communicate the message of the artwork
  6. Colour: The harmony or contrast created by the use of colour in the artwork, does the artwork use colour effectively?
  7. Creativity: The idea and concept being communicated through the artwork.
  8. Overall impression: The feeling and impression from the artwork as a whole. This can be more subjective than other art judging criterias.

Now I’m honored to announce the prizes for the following 6 artworks. Congratulations to the prize winners !
