CONTEST NOW CLOSED, GOOD LUCK TO EVERYONE WHO ENTERED WE WILL BEGIN JUDGING IN THE NEXT FEW DAYS!



Bring out your dead side



Ever had that feeling, that a portrait is watching you? No matter where you stand in the room its gaze seems to follow you,.. staring... waiting...

We invite you to join us in making a grand collection of horrific hounds, voluptuous vampires, and ghoulish ghostly portraits this Halloween in best Haunted House style!
Its time to unlock your inner Dorian Grey, and all those other creepy strange ancestors, cousins, uncles, aunts and grannies that the family don't like to talk about!

Even if you aren't normally a model stock provider - or if you don't usually provide stock at all, this is your chance to dip your toe in the murky waters and have a go! Bring out your face paints and props and make a dashing Halloween portrait entry! The more creative you are, the more creative the results of the second half of the contest will be!

No, I mean that you actually have to submit your deviation to the group as well - please read the rules!  The physical gallery you have submitted your work to is fine, but you need to also submit the deviation to our group where we are collecting all the entries else your work will not be entered into the contest.

"ALL ENTRIES MUST be of PORTRAIT orientation  (greater height than width see examples in the journal) and submitted to the correct digital/traditional/mixed media sub gallery and additionally submitted to the following StockandResources contest folder here - Art Entry Folder

Yep but you can always unjoin again after the contest is over if its a problem :)   The group is a non submission one, so you will only get news articles in your MC if you stay as a member :nod:

Firstly, make sure you are a member of the group, then when you have your entry ready to submit to the artwork folder you can select the group in the submission process, or go to your deviation and choose "add to group" on the right hand side menu.

And do we have to use our own stock portrait or can anybody choose from those 2 folders?

I have submitted a stock portrait in the Main folder and one in the Addit folder.
Hope it's correct ?

Elandria Featured By Owner Oct 30, 2013  Professional General Artist
If you are taking part in the art half of the contest you must use any stock provided in the "main stock portrait" folder - however you don't have to use your own if you have entered a stock portrait :)

The art part of the contest doesn't actually start until the 31st October, so the submission folder is not yet active.  Just make sure you have auto joined the #stockandresources group so that when the second part of the contest goes live you can submit your art to the right folder :)
