     Artist Challenge!

For Madefire’s last artist hunt on deviantART, waaaay back in 2012, our goal was to simply find a great artist to draw a monster story that our CCO, Liam Sharp, had written. And to say we were really pleased with the results is an understatement — not only did we have dozens upon dozens of remarkable submissions, we found a truly amazing creator who’s gone on to produce a number of stories for us. Here's the episode that came about from that contest:





This time around, however, we want to make it a bigger, more involved challenge — and a challenge it’ll be! Like before, the winner will get a paid Motion Book gig through Madefire; but rather than simply sending us your existing samples, we’d like you to take the initiative and show us how YOU would approach the story and characters. We’ll provide the script page, character designs and the deadline and we want to see your take on the characters and world — in whatever your style is as we don’t have a specific “look” in mind (so, while the character designs are gorgeous they’re NOT the desired style per se). Additionally, we’ve enlisted an eclectic, star-studded group of guest judges that will be helping us find a winner as well as giving all sorts of advice and pointers on creativity, business, etc. We’re hoping as many deviants as possible will participate!

Stay tuned and watch this space as the countdown for the challenge begins NOW! Over the next 13 days we’ll be announcing our guest judges, running some interviews with the creators, the writer, and character designer for... Fran Kenstein!

It’s going to be a lot of fun!

Cheers,
Madefire

   The Concept

Fran Kenstein
Fran doesn’t like the boys at her high school.
The brainy ones are too weedy.
The sporty ones are too dumb.
The attractive ones are too self-obsessed.
Fran decides it’s time to build herself the perfect boyfriend...


Initial Fran Design
