Mega Monthly Challenge August! Now Closed!!

Journal Entry: Tue Aug 2, 2016, 2:53 PM
August's contest is now closed, check back soon for Septembers challenge theme and required stock! :la:


Hey, check it out! It's a brand new monthly stock use challenge, brought to you by Elandria Aeirmid and PirateLotus-Stock The main idea is to make some art and have fun, while using previously unused stock (or stock with very few uses). Each month will have a different theme, and we will try to make them interesting and much different than what you've seen before, and we will be selecting stock from a whole smorgasbord of amazing stock providers!

The previous months challenge entries and winner will be announced by PirateLotus-Stock soon!



This month's theme: DREAM




Da Roolz


  • Use either (or both) of the stocks below in a NEW artwork (must be submitted to DA after the start of the challenge).
  • Use any other legitimate stock you like. All stock used must be properly credited with a link. If the stock is your own, mention that as well. We want to be able to trace where every little thing came from!
  • All stock use must comply with the stockers' rules. Remember, you must also credit, even if that is not part of the stockers' rules.
  • The artwork must fit the theme somehow.  You may be asked to explain if it is not clear.
  • Challenge runs from the first of the month til the last day of the month.  All entries must be in by midnight DA time on the last day of the month.
  • Submit entries by posting a link in the comments, or by sending a note to me (PirateLotus-Stock).
  • Entries must mention they are for the challenge, with a link.
  • Enter as many times as you like, but you can only win once!
  • One artist per entry (no collaborations).
  • Any digital and traditional media will be accepted as long as you can use the stock in it.



Compulsory Stock


Blacklight Pack 3 by PirateLotus-Stock
Captain Anazalia 18 by PirateLotus-Stock
You must use AT LEAST one of these two stock images in your entry.




Prizes


3 or fewer entrants: features for all entrants
4+ entrants: One winner will receive 200 points and a feature
10+ entrants: One or two winners will receive 200 points and a feature each

We're not sure how this will go, so prizes will be adjusted once we find a good rhythm.  It's probable that we will be giving more than what is mentioned here.

Ok, that's it, go create some stuff!!
