AUGUST ART COMP - MASSIMO BELARDINELLI
« on: 03 August, 2017, 12:29:36 AM »
From July winner Andy Lambert (and also suggested quite some time ago by Sheridan):

Quote
I don't know if the forum has paid tribute to this comics legend, but if not, I think it's time it did. Early Dan Dare, ACE Trucking Co., early Slaine, Blackhawk, Harlem Heroes, Meltdown Man... so many classics.

Indeed rarely a month goes by when the Italian 80s prog stalwart is not mentioned - his wildly imaginative design work and his distinctive visual style make him one of 2000 AD's most iconic artists. He sadly died a decade ago but his legend lives on! So do have a go at one or more of his distinctive characters, pay tribute to his best moments, try to mimic his idiosyncratic approach...

As always BARNEY is your friend!

There will be a GN straight from the nerve centre for the winner of course, and one for Tharg's Choice -  - all entries will be viewable here, on our dedicated FB page, and also on the official 2000 AD Tumblr and Twitter!

Rules for the art comp are these:

- It must fit the theme.

- You can enter as many times as you like but bear in mind it will split your vote so it may not be worth it.

- All entries have to be constructed specifically for this competition - so nothing you've done for anything else.

- You can enter either here or by directly putting it on our FB wall here: https://www.facebook.com/2000adartcomp/

YOU HAVE UNTIL AUGUST THE 27th WHEN WE SHALL ACE THE VOTING GARP

So pleased to see this - Massimo was one of the stalwarts when I started reading in 1983.  It's great seeing some of the later works his family posts to Facebook.

Possibly my fave ever artist

Really looking forward to the submissions
