Lionheart Studio's Dreadjim Snags Wacom Master Artist Award!


The results are out and *drumroollllllll......

Our director Dreadjim and his team have won WACOM's Ultimate Master Artist Showdown 2017!!!

Facing off against the all-star opponent team and against all odds* (public filming, stress, insane short deadlines, working as a team suddenly, 3-5 hours of sleep, one whole month of voting hic etc) We are indeed humbled by the title's intimidating meaning itself, but after experiencing this challenge, it surely is no cake walk!

We have also gleamed many elements of success, learning as well as inspiration from the other artists and the whole team at work.

The contest itself is judged with online voting( which both teams are about equal) and by the three judges choice for winner.

Here are their critique:

From Kyo(Taiwan)

馬賽 Kyo 台灣評審 二隊的作品無疑都是水準之上的佳作。 尤其是在這趟環島旅程中我幾乎每分每秒看著他們的努力以及競賽條件的嚴苛, 更是從心裡為他們感到驕傲~ 來自不同繪畫領域的背景, 各自擁有著不同風格的繪畫表現特性, 隨機決定的分組方式, 隨了高超的繪畫技術, 我也看到他們未來往更高之境所具備的韌性與意志~ 二隊所呈現出的作品幾乎難以評比, 不論技巧與視覺構圖表現都在伯仲之間。 RGB隊作品充份表現出這趟環島之旅的豐富與奇幻想像力, 創造出一個令人著迷期待的夢幻國度畫面, 每一個物件元素均能見到這團隊的刻畫細膩與執著態度, 精湛的技巧完整地呈現出筆下寫實虛幻的世界。 XXX隊作品同樣將奇幻想像力發揮到最大, 豐富的畫面中更多了份童趣與故事性。 平面風格與寫實風格合協交融著, 細膩的筆調與質感讓作品同樣具有深度與可看性, 且在整體佈局考量上再加入了不同空間的趣味, 更巧妙結合了品牌的元素, 讓創作與品牌精神並存~

From Stanley Lau | Artgerm (Singapore) 我認為兩件作品在技巧和視覺呈現上都很優秀。實在很難從中選出優勝者。如果只能選擇一件作品的話,我會選擇XXX。我欣賞他們在畫面中將繪圖板呈現出來,象徵用數位方式紀錄台灣旅程的一種載具。我也欣賞他們將人的元素加進畫作中,在整體呈現上會較RGB更引人入勝。 總之,非常恭喜兩隊完成優秀的作品! Both entries are really beautiful and technically excellent. It is very hard to pick a winner. Having said that, I would choose XXX between these two. I like the fact that they includes the tablet in their image as a way to capture their Taiwan journey through digital medium. I also like how they introduce the human elements into their image which feels more inviting than RGB’s entry. Anyway congrats to both teams.

From 有田満弘 Mitsuhiro Arita (Japan)

一開始,我刻意避開了包括團隊名稱等作品資訊,試著排除先入為主的觀念,專注於作品傳達的內涵。首先我感到疑惑的是,兩幅作品的概略結構竟如此相似,這是偶然嗎?乍看之下,不只是漂浮在海上的島嶼,連島嶼的構圖也十分相似,提醒了我本次活動要旨:決勝地點就在台灣。雖然就個人觀點來看,作品優劣取決於整體構圖,但因為本次難以抉擇,我選擇觀察作品的構成要素。最後,我在畫作中有獅子的作品看見了故事脈絡。通過觸控筆進入Mobile Studio Pro畫面的三位人物,想必是繪製這幅畫的畫師吧。我能夠想像,畫面中的風景描繪的或許是台灣,也或許反應了各位畫師的故鄉。以上是我自行解讀的心得。閱讀了雙方團隊的作品解說後,果然如我猜測的,這幅畫中融入了 TEAM XXX 畫師們的原鄉要素。TEAM RGB 的作畫技巧十分精湛,但作品解說中提到「將隊名 RGB 的意象融入作品以表現台灣生活」,對於事前避開作品資訊、沒有造訪過台灣的我來說較難產生共鳴。這是從激烈競爭中脫穎而出的畫師,團結一心所描繪的作品。對於熟悉台灣的人來說,或許TEAM RGB 的作品更能引起共鳴。但 TEAM XXX 的畫作能使人在閱讀解說前就理解作品意涵。因此,我將我的一票投給 TEAM XXX。
