Winning design #6712 by r1ck_art, Icon Design for Hillbilly Contest
Gold Medal

designed by r1ck_art

Project description

You can use the tools of your choice, a graphic tablet or just paper and pencil. You can even do a vector rendering of your Hill Billy if you like.  Remember no photo or photo manipulation. The image that you upload will be automatically resized to 640x480px. But your best results happen if you size your entry yourself at 640x480.  You do not need to use the DC canvas for this contest. You keep all the rights for the image and you are free to use it for any future projects even if you win the contest. The only thing that we request is that the Hill Billy you submit here is done specifically for this contest and not an old work of yours.


The winner will be determined by the poll open to all registered members of the DC community. I am sure that the members will judge the creativity, the drawing skills and your sense of humor. Just as usual, the winner of this contest will receive a DC t-shirt from our store and will move one step closer to enrollment to the Elite Design Team.

    This looks like hillbilly in Asia, the background is nice, but it's a little bit too neat, like a park in a city.
  • Hi, Shaire please comment for entries #6923 & #6927 Here I tried it with the character of a boy and also tried with a woman. Thanks
  • I'm not sure what hillbilly strikes are? I like the motion. Not sure what program you used to create this but this has some very rough areas along with cut and paste look along with some live trace in some areas. The hand for example looks cut and pasted to that area. This just has an unfinished look and feel. As I said though I like where you are going with the motion

It seems to be very consistent with what everyone else thinks a hillbilly looks like but this guy has more than a pot belly, I think he ate or drank something very very bad

  • Thank you Sharie. I originally wanted her to have the same body you see but to have huge buck teeth and crossed eyes. But I just couldn't do that to her! :P I also drew her with a background scene but I kinda like this graphic brushstroke background better.
  • is that my dad?
