From Tim Burton, the acclaimed director of Alice In Wonderland, comes the astounding film that captured the hearts of fans and critics all across the world. Inspired by Roald Dahl's beloved children's book, Burton, Denise Di Novi and Director Henry Selick combine a fascinating mix of live-action, stop-motion animation and computer-generated special effects to create a world beyond your imagination.

After the daring rescue of a spider, a young boy named James gains possession of some magic crocodile tongues. When James spills them in the garden, out sprouts an enormous peach! Climbing inside, he meets an astonishing cast of characters and embarks on a magical odyssey full of thrills and adventure. Voiced by an all-star cast, including legendary actors Richard Dreyfuss, Susan Sarandon, Simon Callow and Jane Leeves, and featuring the celebrated music of Randy Newman, this classic story is delicious entertainment for the whole family!

In "James and the Giant Peach," James is looking for an escape – from his troubles, from the sadness surrounding his parents' untimely death, from his horrid aunts. With the help of a magical oversized peach and some newfound friends, James was able to sail across the sea and reach the faraway land he'd always dreamt of. For this contest, put yourself in James' shoes and show us where you go to escape the real world! Illustrate the magical landscape of your daydreams and let us see where your imagination takes you. Adventures this big don't grow on trees, so let your imagination soar to Giant-Peach proportions!

Starships are the shield, sword and signature for the pilots of EVE. They are created both to tear down entire empires and to gather and transport the resources needed to build anew. What new machine will you bring to the warfront? Will yours be a craft of elegance and beauty? Will the mere presence of it prove more intimidating than any arsenal a pilot could load into its bays? Design a starship and enter it into the EVE Online Create A Starship Contest for a chance to have your dream ship become a reality. The 1st Place winner will have their ship added to the premiere space MMOG (Massively Multiplayer Online Game), EVE Online where countless pilots will build and fly the winners' creation.

Show us your real concept art skills and get judged by the EVE Online creative team! Examples of how an entry should look are here (image) and here (video). Entrants will need to provide their entry from all six orthogonal views in order to qualify for further consideration as a potential winning entry.

Bosses are the biggest, baddest, and strongest enemies in any video game. They control hordes of monsters, rule the land, and they usually take a lot of skill to defeat. We're challenging you to create a new colossus
(a boss) for the new massively multiplayer online role-playing game, RIFT.

You're traveling through Telara as a bright light appears. A massive rift opens up and monsters start invading. Your team fights to protect their land. As they continuously battle the invading monsters, a massive, 10-story colossus appears.

deviantART is challenging artists to answer the question: What does this colossus look like in RIFT?

Choose one of the six planar themes: earth, air, fire, water, life, or death. Create concept art of a colossus using one of the themes. You can use your favorite image editing tool, a 3D program, or traditional media.

You must build a new colossus for the game RIFT.

Your colossus:
  • Must be based on only one of the six planar themes
  • Must be very large within the scale of the game environment
  • Must be original to you and all elements must originate from you. You cannot copy graphic material from the game.
  • Can be made in any medium as long as you submit it as a JPG or a PNG
  • Can be made using licensed brushes and textures, but you may not use third-party stock in your entry
Terrible to behold and teeming with elemental might, a colossus represents the ultimate destructive power of its plane, leading its fellow riftspawn to battle against scores of Ascended.

Choose one of the six planar themes. (Click examples below.)

Create concept art for a massive boss using your favorite image editing program, 3D graphics software, or traditional media.

Once you're done, submit it as a .JPG or .PNG file!

Unmasking the Darkness

The Game

Deceived by the forces of evil into prematurely bringing about the end of the world, War – the first Horseman of the Apocalypse – stands accused of breaking the sacred law by inciting a war between Heaven and Hell.

Dishonored and facing his own death, War is given the opportunity to return to Earth to search for the truth and punish those responsible.

Hunted by a vengeful group of Angels, War must take on the forces of Hell, forge uneasy alliances with the very demons he hunts, and journey across the ravaged remains of the Earth on his quest for vengeance and vindication.

Go to www.darksiders.com to learn more about the game!

The Contest

We are challenging you to create a piece of artwork in any visual medium depicting a creative and personal interpretation of the last days of Earth during an 'apocalypse'. What would the end of the world mean to you? Is it your favorite TV show getting canceled? Your best friend moving across the country? A world with no ketchup (OMG!)? Whether your version is "fire and brimstone" in the biblical sense or a world overrun by cannibalistic bunnies – we want to see what your 'last days' would look like!

As an extra special treat, the winners for this contest will be selected by Joe Madureira of Vigil Games, AKA Joe Mad!
