"On Delicate Wings"



Mourning for Icarus by H.J. Draper 1898


The Theme- ART:


We want you to recreate the story of Icarus, be that modern, or ancient using stock and resources available on DeviantART.

The Theme - STOCK:


We want you to recreate the story of Icarus, in stock form!  Is your Icarus male or female?  Are your wings made from feathers and wax or something more magical?


The Story: Icarus
Son of Daedalus who dared to fly too near the sun on wings of feathers and wax. Daedalus had been imprisoned by King Minos of Crete within the walls of his own invention, the Labyrinth. But the great craftsman's genius would not suffer captivity. He made two pairs of wings by adhering feathers to a wooden frame with wax. Giving one pair to his son, he cautioned him that flying too near the sun would cause the wax to melt. But Icarus became ecstatic with the ability to fly and forgot his father's warning. The feathers came loose and Icarus plunged to his death in the sea.

Will you concentrate on Icarus reaching for the sky, or lost in the depths of the sea, or will you twist the myth?  Its all up to you!

I've got some new teenage male stocks if anyone needs them, several from the back. (I know it's late in the game and all, but they're useful anyway.) I'd love to see what you can do with it cuz sadly I don't have time lately to use 'em.

I have a quick question.... say you are an artist AND have a stock account as well. Can submit 2 on each account or just 1 for each account?
Reply
:iconelandria:
Elandria Featured By Owner Apr 18, 2012  Professional General Artist
Hmmm thats not one that come up before. I would say no. As you are an individual, despite your 2 accounts. It would be unfair to have additional entries for the extra account. You are welcome to submit 1 art and 1 stock, or 2 arts/2 stocks.

Out of curiosity, can we use our own photographs that we haven't registered as stock on this website? I mean it is ours... but understandably it's not in category stock...
Reply
:iconelandria:
Elandria Featured By Owner Apr 11, 2012  Professional General Artist
You could, as long as you ALSO used 5 pieces of stock thats actually available on DA as stock :)

Is it legit to be using stock references for a traditional painting?
Reply

Yep thats fine you just have to make it clear that you've used 5 different references :nod:

Darn, first thing i thought when i saw this was 'so many story ideas'!
Then i realized it was art only.
Looks like I'll just write it anyway.

Yer sorry about that! We'd still love to see your story though! Next one we do will definitely have a literature element to it as well :nod:

When it says at least 5 individual resources found on dA, that means, even if I have a personal source of that resource, I would still have to use someone else's resource to make it count to minimum of 5? :O_o:
I may have more questions later :noes:

:iconelandria:
Elandria Featured By Owner Mar 21, 2012  Professional General Artist
We would prefer you to use other peoples resources, but if you want to include 1 of your own that should be ok, we're looking really for diversity and variety of resources used you are welcome to use all your own resources, along with 5 from other people... that would still cover the requirements, as I mentioned, theres no "maximum" limit on how many resources you ultimately use :)

Basically if you use 5 of your own resources, you wouldn't really be entering into the spirit of us encouraging you to go out and explore the stock galleries for new stuff to use :) Hope that makes sense!

Brush packs count as resources, correct? Also, if we upload to the Resources gallery, can we use our personally created deviations as long as they are shared with other users?
Reply
:iconelandria:
Elandria Featured By Owner Mar 20, 2012  Professional General Artist
Yep brush packs are resources :nod: I don't see why you couldn't submit 1 entry as a resource and the other as art that also uses the resource. Of course we are looking for diversity of stock and resources used but you've got plenty of scope in the DA stock gallery :nod:
