This is what a Super Art Fight looks like. Never heard of it? It’s when two teams of two artists are given a large canvas to battle it out in cartoon form. Each team is given a different phrase or theme, and they have a limited time to embody it, taking up as much room as they’d like, attacking the other art on the canvas, and even altering what is already there. New phrases get added into the mix, submitted by the audience before the show, and the artists need to think fast and adapt to create new art. Its a fast-paced, tag team effort. At the end of each round, the winning team is chosen by the biggest applause that is measured by a digital sound level reader. Here’s what happened at the ConnectiCon 2013 Super Art Fight!
The final piece of round one in its entirety.
Doctor Who battles an otter-like Sherlock Holmes, while getting hit with a ship and sword from the Pacific Rim movie!
A communist PARTY, with Fidel Castro in a kiddy pool. Historical figures are suddenly getting the KISS look though.
Amy Pond turned Nyan Cat, turned Adventure Time, turned mermaid, turned Deadpool! Cthulu in the corner?
This artist would not stop referencing Pacific Rim!
Sherlock Holmes turned monkey butler, turned Wolverine in the bottom left. A bikini-clad Dalek at bottom center. And an Emovenger Hawkeye.
Thor has a huge thor-head.
Iron Man, goul, and Pacific Rim machine, rocking out and wearing a hat.
I have no idea what happened.
Babe Lincoln looking pretty corpse-like.
Steak and Potatoes, going to war!
Eggs and Bacon monster!
