Donald Duck: An Artistic Masterpiece

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Quacky Donald Duck is refined enough to be made into a fine art masterpiece.

Now through June 15, D23 – the official community for Disney fans – is asking fans to submit handmade paintings of the Disney character for their Donald Duck 75th Anniversary Portrait Contest.

They’re not allowing any computer graphics submissions or any renderings that aren’t finely crafted, so entrants better get their paintbrushes and canvases ready.

The winner will receive the prestigious Duckster Award, which hasn’t been given out in 20 years because no art has measured up to standards.

Steven Clark, head of D23 figures that the best masterpieces will be painted by ultimate Donald Duck fans who can evoke the cartoon’s lovable yet cantankerous nature into a painted artwork.

If the painting is good enough to turn executives’ heads, the artist may even end up working for the Disney community, which is what happened to the last winner.
