Wow… Last quarter’s maiden Artist Challenge got off to a slow start, I think everyone was either shy…or playing their cards VERY close to their chest. But what a finish huh? As a brand new concept and challenge, it’s natural that it will take time to pick up and gather momentum…but I had such a blast seeing all the fab Shakespeare inspired images…which of course by now are, or should shortly be available in the respective Artists stores… so be sure to check those out.
and the winners are… EVERYBODY… artists and crafters alike. So congrats to everyone on some fantastic new digis <<INSERT APPLAUSE SOUND HERE …… LOL
This is a challenge for Digi Stamp Artists to play with new ideas, have some friendly competition and get the creative juices flowing. It’s a fun community art event which we hope will be a quarterly occurrence. It’s a new spin on the old card challenge idea… but now our favorite artists get to play.
New artists are welcome too, if you are a new digi artist trying to get established and meet a fab group of established artists and mentors, or an existing artist in need of some fresh fun ideas. Come on in, the water is great.
Now onto the new challenge…. I ummed and agghed and ummed some more while trying to decide on a new theme. It’s perfectly timed for a Christmas theme….BUT… all the artists usually have one of those running independently anyway..
The idea behind this challenge is to break out of the comfort zone and so..without further ado. The new theme is….
“In a state”
deadline midnight Central time November 30th, 2016
This is open to anything related to the theme ….and how you interpret it. It’s pretty loose so there should be lots of room for personal style in this one again.
I shall give a few ideas to show the flexibility of this theme ..and then you can run with it however suits you.
State of mind
State of shock
New Hampshire themed
State of emergency
State of confusion
State of undress <<<< someone will go there LOL
State of the Union
For those of you who like to draw characters, there are opportunities to practice facial expressions and body language.
For the quirky ones among you… again plenty of fun expressions to be had.
For the saucy ones… well no need to guess where you are going
For those of you who love animals, nature, floral and such… there are plenty of ways to make that work too.
If you want to play and are stuck for ideas… you can always hit me up….I am full of crazy ideas lol.
- Each artist may enter up to 10 individual images per given theme.
- Images must not be made available for sale until the end of each challenge period. ( December 1st for this one )
- You may add single images, or link to a blog post with up to 10 images..but each image must be entered in the challenge linky individually.
- You may showcase the images in color, or projects on your blog links should you wish to …but challenge entries must be watercolored black and white lineart format.
So get your thinking caps on … let’s do this”
