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.
- The subject matter of the artwork: artwork have to meet the rules of the contest (no repost on Steem, no NSFW, no plagiarism art, …)
- Composition: The way the subject matter is framed, the placing of the other elements as well as the prospective shown.
- 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.
- 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.
- Light: The impression given by the lighting in the artwork, the ability to use light and shade to communicate the message of the artwork
- Colour: The harmony or contrast created by the use of colour in the artwork, does the artwork use colour effectively?
- Creativity: The idea and concept being communicated through the artwork.
- 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 !

A warm image of a viking family drawn by @elias15g. They also provide some images of the drawing process which is nice to see. Visit their post to read more and see how this was created.
@doze captures the moment beautifully in this picture of “Sunset Lovers”. There is a great compliment between the wide view of the landscape and the intimacy of the couple and their silhouette. The sunset is the best filter.
@potatosauce’s art work show’s the love between father and daughter. It’s a very beautiful image and the eyes are touching and say everything.

At first glance, you might not realise this painting is made from light, a very unique method of creating artwork that uses long exposure to capture light as it moves and draws the many aspects you can see. @mafufuma shows his great skill and creativity in this work.
Again we thank you all for sharing your art in this contest so everyone has a chance to learn and gather inspiration from you all. Together we can create a great art environment and art community on the Steem blockchain.
