Head Texture of the Month: Abstract!

Are you diversified in the unknown? Can you replicate the abstract? Be unique and create your masterpiece!

In this event, the Event Squad (ES) give you guys a theme to work with, and you have 4 weeks to create an amazing head texture. The person who creates the head that best fits the judging criteria receives prizes. But don't worry if you don't make it out on top, as there will be several honorable mentions. Now let's get drawing!

The winner will receive the following:

100000 TC

The winners of the honourable mentions prize will receive the following:

All winning entries and honourable mention winners will be mentioned in both the Opening Post of the next HTotM with the artists credited AND in a Sticky thread in the art forum. So if you're looking for a chance to establish yourself as an artist in the Toribash community, this is your it!

We do still have rules that are to be followed. Keep in mind we may not judge your art if it doesn't follow ALL of these rules.

- No plagiarism, this isn't tolerated at all and is severely punishable
- Do not submit old/pre-made textures.
- A rough sketch or WIP is required to prove that it is a head in progress and not a pre-made head that you are reposting.
- Collaborations are allowed, however in this scenario prizes will be split.
- Only one submission is allowed, which also means no alts used to submit two different heads. If you're collaborating with another artist, you can only submit that head.
- Submissions must be in 512x512 or higher.
- Post watermarked flats in this thread with spherical previews. It would be much appreciated if you used Toribash Textures for 3D previews.
- If you aren't using Toribash Textures, ensure to make your previews clear, show all aspects of your head and attempt to keep watermarks somewhat non-intrusive while still being effective.

Four weeks after this post, the ES will judge the entries and the process begins. It could take anywhere between 2 days to 1 week. Your entries will be judged based on the following criteria:

- How well the idea fits the theme
- Uniqueness; think outside the box, as it could be the difference between winning and losing
- The execution of your idea

For examples of Abstract art, look up Marsden Hartley, and Kandinsky

Once the judges have decided on a winner, a post will be made announcing the artists who won/received honorable mentions. Good luck!

The winners of the Previous HTOTM were as follows:

First place:

Weppetko with "Satanic Possession"

The honorable mentions are:

Clint with "UnInvited Guest"
SeeU with "Xenos"

The deadline is 4 weeks after event goes live: November 30th, 20:00 (GMT+0)

I see you, Frost

I'm hoping to see a bit more colourful submissions. While black and white is always nice, abstract art works perfectly when its colourful as hell
I give the best relationship advice

friendly reminder: Abstract art, should not be recognizable as anything you could look at and say its name.

I would like to show people my ABSTRACT FIBER SET. That's what i called OP-art. It is made to be hard to watch, and flow like a glue.

I never take part in this event.

Hidden Instinct

"Hidden Instinct" removed from the contest

If you are curious about how it looked, you can still search it on toribash textures typing the name - slightly improved
