3x3 International Illustration Show No.11: Call for Entries
deadline:March 31, 2014.
The 3x3 Illustration Show No.11 is now accepting entries. 3x3 offers three competitions each year: ProShow, Picture Book Show, Student Show. The shows are open to illustrators from around the world and are judged by an international panel of judges. Show winners are featured in the 3x3 Annual distributed worldwide. You can read our FAQ for complete details.
Be sure to join our mailing list to receive call for entries or follow us on Twitter or Facebook.
What’s New? We are adding an honorable mention category this year, while winners will need a majority of votes to get into the show, honorable mentions will need receive one-half the judge’s votes. Winners will be featured in our print edition and online, honorable mentions will be featured online.
We will be creating an app of the annual and it will be offered free to a select list of art directors worldwide. Art directors will also receive a discount when ordering our print edition.
We have added categories in our student show including illustration, animation and books. This allows our judges to judge these categories separately.
We’ve added an art director to our student judging panel.
We have one deadline for all shows: March 31, 2014
Our mission is to spotlight the best contemporary international artists we can find and encourage a new focus on the use of illustration by the global editorial, advertising and design communities. To that end we hold juried competitions once a year to highlight the best and brightest talents of each year. This year’s show is no different, a top line-up of judges from the art director side coupled with industry- leading illustrators from both sides of the pond.
Our goal is to bring together artists from all countries to share their creative output in an impartial judging scenario. All judging is done digitally by a set of unbiased judges; if a particular judge has either commissioned the work or has been the illustrator they are not allowed to vote on their entry.
Eligibility Open to all illustrators, art directors, graphic designers, educators, students, recent graduates, editors, publishers in all countries for commissioned and non-commissioned work produced and/or published during the calendar year 2013.
Our Annual is distributed on newsstands worldwide making it one of the few illustration annuals to have such a wide distribution. In addition, this year we will be preparing a free app of the complete annual to send to leading art directors. In addition all winners will be invited to participate in the 2015 Illustration Directory sent free to 6,000+ art directors and art buyers in America. And we will promote all winners online at 3x3mag.com. Winners receive a discount on purchasing the print or digital edition.
Prizes include best of show, gold, silver and bronze medals as well as distinguished merit awards. In addition to merit awards we’re adding an honorable mention category. Our honorable mention winners will only be displayed online. We’ve added this category because many of our entrants were just shy of being recognized in our show. It will still take a majority of our judges’ votes for a piece to get into our show, but by adding the honorable mention category those receiving half the judges’ votes will now be recognized.
One deadline for all shows. Enter the 3x3 Professional Show, Picture Book Show or Student Show. The Unpublished category in both the 3x3 ProShow and Picture Book Show is open to students. Entries must be uploaded or postmarked no later than March 31, 2014. There will be a late fee if you miss the deadline however if you have problems with your upload or payment process we will forgo the late fee.
A wonderful fuck-ton of cartoonizing references.
It annihilates everything about the realistic anatomical structure… but ey.

An amazing fuck-ton of jumping references.
Note that there are several types of jumps. There’s the “proper” way to jump, where you keep a straight back and a bunch of other anatomical alignment junk that physical therapists tell you to do. There’s the “Wholly shit the building’s gonna blow up!” jump where the limbs are flailing, circling, doing whatever (you see this kind in action movies). There’s the “clearing an oncoming object in a very ninja-like way” kind of jump where the goal is to get as high as possible and tuck the legs in tight to the body. There’s the “I can touch the ceiling ‘cause I’m tall and you’re not” jump where you’re simply trying to reach something, so the legs are typically straight and the arms are stretching upward (also a slam-dunk jump). And there are athletic hurtle jumps, trampoline jumps, volleyball jumps, and the tackling your pursuee jumps. Many many jumps. What I’m leading in to is that you ought to know what the character is jumping for. When you identify the jump type, it’s a great idea to find video clips of it in many different situations (or for a specific situation, depending on how precise you want it for the scene), as this is an action you’re drawing, so the best way to grasp the concept of the movement is to see the movement.
O, and I found this after posting everything (if anybody’s interested):
