Naruto's official shonen jump/viz contest, part 2

Journal Entry: Fri Oct 24, 2014, 12:04 AM


So as many of you already know by now, the contest run by vizmedia/shonen jump in honor of Naruto's ending (find more about the contest here) stated that entries should be hand-drawn. With that, they mean traditional media. When I started working on my entry that specific rule hadn't been implied yet. 
When I turned my entry in however I read the newly added rule. Of course I was butt-hurt. As I consider drawing digital just as much as hand-drawn as traditional. I can draw just as well traditional as digital but for some works I simply prefer working digital like how someone else would prefer oil paint over watercolors for whatever valid reason. 

So anyway I send them a butt-hurt mail a few weeks ago and today I received a reply. I thought I'd share it with you guys as I know there are a lot of people that wanted to submit a digital piece also. 

Here's my butt-hurt mail to them (lol:p): 

"Dear vizmedia/shonenjump,
A few days back I read the fan-art competition in honor of Naruto's final chapter planned on November the 10th. I instantly went to work on it, then when it was finished today I read on your Facebook page that all of a sudden there stood "hand-drawn" which was obvious to me so at first I didn't pay that much attention. However, after that it stated that for you guys that meant not working on a digital program like Photoshop. That really hurt my feelings as an artist on so so so many levels. so please hear me out and reconsider that statement after my few words I have to say.
1st of, with this statement you are denying a lot of artist the chance to have their work looked at by a very talented artist meaning mister Kishimoto-sensei himself. Honestly, I don't care if there is a prize or not, for me having a chance that one of my biggest inspirations will look at all the submissions giving me a chance on feedback from an artist I admire so much is worth the world to me and I am sure for a lot of artists out there.
2nd of, I draw a minimum of 8 hours a day and I am a student in animation and audiovisual design. I am not great yet but I work hard and I will one day be great, with your statement you are stating that digital drawing is not hand-drawn yet I have a bump on my middle finger because I am drawing so often with my hands on a tablet proofing my right.
3rd of, digital shouldn't be such a taboo anymore, it is like traditional a respected medium. I am an artist and I work on both media depending on what I want to make. I don't think any of the one is better than the other. Yet for this particular piece I wanted something flashy and what I wanted to do I felt better making digital. I did not trace, I did not copy anything (well apart from the logo as you asked for a sj logo) I made sasuke and naruto in my own style and after being so content with the finished result reading that for your guys "hand drawn" doesn't include working digitally was more then upsetting, it really from the bottom of my heart hurt my feelings as I do hand-draw. I draw so much that my hands hurt to become a great artist.
so please I ask you to reconsider and give me the chance of having Masashi Kishimoto look at my digital artwork also.
kind regards,"

And here is their reply:

"Hi Dana,

Thank you for submitting a beautiful Naruto cover!

We don't want to offend any of our fans, however, at this point we cannot change the terms of our event. We are accepting all pieces with a hand drawn foundation (some digital touch-ups/color acceptable), but we do not want purely digital pieces.

Thank you again. I hope you continue making beautiful art. :)

Best,"


So for the love of god, if you want to have Kishimoto look at your artwork please don't be an idiot like myself and finish and enter your submission digitally but make something entirely traditional :iconcryforeverplz:

Maybe If I got time I will copy my entry traditional after all -.-

good luck to all of you!

xx Dana
