Clementine Respirator by contraomnes Clementine Respirator by contraomnes
Done entirely with construction paper and some ink. Felt like kindergarten :D I think my next project will be in crayola.

Sorry guys, still no children's book updates. I want to keep it fresh so I'm taking a break from them. I've also been quite busy with some jobs I've been fortunate to have come my way, and a broke college student needs to make money some how.

Hope you guys enjoy, peace.

UPDATE: As I've gotten more than one comment on this and I expect to get more, I'm just going to post this here. I have changed nothing about the template. Every element from the template; the hand holding the mentos, the before and after are all included in my piece and I have changed none of there positions either, and the concept of a before and after using mentos remains intact. I've looked through the entirety of the rules, and it says nothing about adding stuff around the template, only stuff about changing the template itself which remains untouched. It also never defines what conforming to the template is, and only says we must use the template and never says how. If I get disqualified, fine, but I stand by my right to interpret the assignment in my own way which is what an artist should do.

This one is my absolute favorite in the contest. Absolutely beautiful! Both sides are made of construction paper and ink? Or is part of it mirrored? Is the real thing 3D/does it pop out of the page? I'm trying to figure out how you created this haha. Gorgeous. :heart:

The judging in this contest is perhaps the worst I've ever seen. I am so upset with their choices. Why in the world would they ever pass over this.
gerder Featured By Owner Jun 24, 2011
maybe the judge is deaf dumb

This is REALLY amazing. I love how you took something as humble as construction paper and made it into this beautiful thing. :heart:

WOW, this is really fancy and artistic for an advertisement XD I didn't even notice they were lungs at first. This is an amazing piece, I couldn't stop looking at it :heart:

I love this design, but unfortunately my eye gravitates towards the warm hues, which kind of defeats the purpose of the ad.

Otherwise, I love it. Great work.

I just found your deviantart profile and I already love your work.

Need to fave this now before I forget! Just a little comment though, I like how the paper still manages to be dynamic (like how it rises slightly in certain places) and is much more interesting than if the pieces were all pasted flat.
Kittiebeester Featured By Owner Aug 22, 2010
This is the most creative thing I've laid eyes on in a very, very, very long time.

I am impressed to the umpteenth degree!

wooooah... just looked at the semi-finalists...

The penguins are so cute. <3 Good luck with the contest!
skipbeat17 Featured By Owner Jul 17, 2010
Did you seriously do all that with construction paper? WOW thats good
Botoxpuppet Featured By Owner Jul 17, 2010
I think we have a winner <3!

The colours are great, and quiet frankly; adding stuff to the template really did make it a lot nicer to look at. Especially the ugly hand-tube thing they had before!
Botoxpuppet Featured By Owner Jul 17, 2010
I just noticed you're not one of the semi-finalists, I'm dissapointed in man-kind :(!

I still think your entry is the best, it looks like a real advertisement :]

This is beautiful. The colour palettes and contrast between them is splendid.

WOW! I think this is fantastic! I really love the textures and layered details you've put into this. The colour and design is great, very beautiful (probably didn't need to repeat "before" and "after" in the larger font, though). You've put more artistic effort and thought into this than the semi-finalists and their works, I think that's obvious... you're probably right that its a technicality on the templates than a reflection on your work, by the judges, that this was overlooked.

I think it's very inspiring :-)

I really liked this piece but it didn't make it.. =(
Can I make a guess why?
Brands are really conscious about their logos and stuff (They even copyright their colors)
So this one deviated the original template and improved it to go well with the art... Maybe they considered that... =(

But this is the best entry... there should be a deviants' choice award for this. =)
Sorodisi Featured By Owner Jun 29, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
ah....thats awesome.'
HollyAReid Featured By Owner Jun 29, 2010
This one is another that should have made it.
Jawsum Featured By Owner Jun 29, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I seriously don't get how you couldn't go on. This is by far the best of them all.. Oh well, feel better that I'm not the only one being surprised.

I love this so much :D :D :D Too bad you didn't have a higher quality camera so this peice would stand out more, but regardless, its perfect :D

Wow, the 3D stuff the steam/smoke on the left...look amazing, I can't imagine making something that cool out of paper, you should win.

If they disqualify you they're a bunch of idiots.

It's amazing. The only thing that could parhaps be changed, in my opinion, would be the central mentos logo. It should pop out more, I think, since the purpose of the contest is to make the role of mentos evident (or something like that). Something subtle would do just fine, I think.

fabulous :thumbsup:

I second what Rin-Rin-Rin said. This is an astounding entry, (puts mine to shame) but I was under the impression that you had to follow the template exactly.
AcheronHades Featured By Owner Jun 23, 2010  Professional Digital Artist
This is really great, nice work!
RinTau Featured By Owner Jun 23, 2010  Professional Digital Artist
It's very beautiful :) Just keep in mind that it's not conforming to the template and it will be disqualified from winning. :(
