For our first contest we have partnered with our friend Arvind Ramkrishna from Driven Mavens, who has made available two copies of its “How To Draw Cars Now” 2-DVD set (check here our detailed review).
In theme with the DVD’s theme, the brief of the competition is to create a quick drawing/rendering/painting of a racing car/sports car from the 1950s-1960s, focusing on the emotional aspect.

You can submit up to 2 images and use whatever techniques and tools you prefer – both digital and analogue – as long as you keep the execution time of each piece under two hours – remember, it’s a sketch contest.

We also ask you to include links to any reference picture(s) you may have used – if any – as well as a short comment with the reasons behind your choice of subject.
Entries must be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org and the submission deadline is Sunday 16 September 2012 at 11:59PM EST.
The submitted works will be reviewed by a panel made by automotive designer Michele Leonello, Arvind Ramkrishna from Driven Mavens, hot rod designer Brian Stupski and Car Body Design founder Marco Traverso.
The jury will select one winner for each category, taking into consideration the capability of expressing beauty and emotions through lines, colors, composition and drawing/painting skills.
The winners will receive the How to Draw Cars Now! DVD set (sold at $49 on Driven Mavens’ Store) plus a $49 Amazon Gift Certificate, offered by Car Body Design.
…and every participant wins a ready-made Portfolio on Car Body Design!
By entering the contest, you’ll be among the first to have a personal portfolio on our pages.
This much-awaited section will go live within the end of September with a beta version exclusively open to the contests’ participants. The section will then be made available to the public from late October.
If you are interested, just send us the material you wish to include – text, links and images – along with your contest entry. We will setup an account for you – unless you already have one – and we’ll upload the submitted material.
As soon as the pages are ready you’ll receive a notification with your login information, and you’ll be able to review and edit the portfolio before its publication.
If you are not interested, just tell us and we will consider your entry just for the contest. You can always build your portfolio later if you want, but you’ll miss the chance of having your page online among the first.
We look forward to receiving your works! And good luck to all!
