Creative Challenge #1What is this?Creative Challenge #13 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
After a bit of ado, we are happy to introduce some new challenges that we hope will inspire some more creativity in our community as well as encourage ALL of us (ourselves included) to learn some new skills and expand our repertoire! For these challenges, we will require the use of one piece of stock that, while lovely and very useful, might typically be considered "overused," and one new skill or technique.
We know there are a lot of challenges out there already, but here are the goals for ours:
To address concerns of "copying" and "lack of creativity" by challenging people to think more creatively about their art,
To help members of our community learn more and expand their skills by challenging them to learn new techniques, and
To maintain the focus of our community on art, growth, and support.
Let's get started!
How does it work?
Film, Animation and Flash Mini-Contest!Hello folks! So this month is Flash, Animation and Flash month for the ArtHistoryProject.Film, Animation and Flash Mini-Contest!2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
So me and SqueakyToybox have been discussing about the idea of having a joint contest! We struggled for a while to find a good theme that would apply well across these mediums. So then we thought deviantART is full of members across the world. Even myself I'm from the UK and SqueakyToybox is from Australia so we're literally halfway across the world from each other.
So we thought a good theme to set you all is:
We would like you to create a piece of work using animation, video or Flash and we will award prizes for each gallery! So we will have a prize for a winner and runner up for film/animation and the same for Flash.
You have until the end of this month, February 28th to send all your work in and we'll announce winners shortly after! Now we appreciate that's not exactly a lot of production time for this sort of wor

So if you have awesome film in your gallery that's 3 minutes long or less, you're welcome to submit it now! Here's all the original info for the contest...Fella's Film Contest!2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Fella would like to invite you to be a part of a new contest, one that looks at a medium that is often overlooked on deviantART, Film.
Since before the 1900s film has been a part of people's lives. Today, feature films are created with huge budgets in mass of $200 Million+. But, often times short films, which do not get seen as much in the United States (but are more readily available in some other countries) are some of the most impressive films.
We would like to invite you to make a short film. All the details are below, so get on it!

Planetary Mythology Photomanipulation Competition!Mythology of the PlanetsPlanetary Mythology Photomanipulation Competition!2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Welcome to the latest "dark" photomanipulation contest, supported by Community Relations here on deviantART. This contest will challenge you to think outside of the box, for you will have to not only create something, but you will need to do a bit of research and think about why you are creating it. Are you ready for a competition that is out of this world?
Before we go any further, let me clarify that PLUTO COUNTS!
What do I have to do?
Choose one of the planets (or Pluto) in our solar system, listed below. Moons or suns can be a part of the larger picture, but they do not count as your god/goddess.
Your job is to create a PHOTOMANIPULATION in which you show a myth around a planetary ruler (that is, the god or goddess after which the planets were named).
The gods/goddesses can be Greek, Roman, or other.... but they must be planetary rulers.

In this contest your goal is to create a photo manipulation, or mixed media piece that focuses on creating an interesting depth of field and perspective!
That is your main goal! Pieces will be judged on overall concept and technique, but the use of depth and perspective will be that main focus! Meaning adding a few blurred out branches in the foreground might not cut it!

Still Life Food Photography Contest
Still life photography usually involves a set up - planning and careful execution of a shot. Food photography in particular takes a lot of preparation and the time to make a dish or an item of food aesthetically pleasing. So I thought it was about time we had a contest involving all elements! Your challenge is to create a brand shiny new Still Life Photography piece that features Food. Now the catch is you must be creative with the food. Entries will be considered carefully and if you are taking photos of food that someone else has made, then you need to step up the mark and make it as unique as possible. If you made the creation yourself, give us a brief idea in the description of how. Utilize the descriptions of your artwork to tell us about your photography!
Start Date: Monday 14th May
End Date: Monday
