When Darkness FallsA reminder to everyone about the current photomanipulation contest running at the moment, hosted by Aeirmid your lovely Photomanipulation Community Volunteer at :iconthe-sacred-space: and supported by :iconstockandresources: with prizes also being donated by :iconcommunityrelations:When Darkness Falls2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Darkness has fallen across the land of photomanipulation.
Haunted spirits and growling fiends descend on every nation.
And terror enthralls those within these walls,
Is this what transpires when darkness falls?
Or, perhaps gentle fairies emerge from 'neath a delicate daisy petal,
and the boys in the band gather in shadow to play their heavy metal?
And a drow elf crawls from the forest's lush walls,
Maybe this is what transpires when darkness falls!
Blame no one but ^SanguineVamp for this "poetry."
You decide what happens (transpires) when darkness falls!
Is it macabre? Is it fantasy? Is it emotional?
It is up to you.

St. Valentines Day is amongst us all, yet love spreads on a daily basis...in any shape, condition, or challenge. This week in Project Educate, I welcome you --
The "I : heart :" Contest!!!!

Bring Your Type to Life - A Typography ContestIt is time for another Typography contest! The theme of this contest will be…Bring Your Type to Life - A Typography Contest2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Bring your Type to Life
This may sound abstract at first, but to keep the theme as open as possible, I choose a rather abstract title. There are many directions in which you can go. You could choose an anthropomorphic direction, where you breathe life into letters and give them human or other animate characteristics. Another route would be to create the letters out of living objects, such as plants or animals.
Which direction you choose, maybe even a third or fourth one, does not matter. What matters is that your letters are brought to life!
What kind of letters you bring to life, words, glyphs or sentences, is 100% up to you. This contest has a more visual approach, so you will not be judged on the creativity of the meaning you choose to give to the letters. However, don't rush it! Even one letter can appear completely different than another. Be wise with the letters, word

I thought it would be interesting to see how much you have improved.
So, to participate in this project, you will take an old work of yours, be it on the site or not, and redo it. To submit it, you will place the two side by side, and label them Before and After. You may also say in your artist's description something like "the one on the right is before, and the one on the left is after" or something like that. Your title will be "Improvement for the Better: (how much time between the two) You will submit to a folder named Improvement for the Better in my group Proud-ToBe-Divergent You don't have to be a member there to submit.

The crowds have voted and the topic shall be:
But of course it’s not that easy. The twist is to find inspiration in the mythology of your native country or the country you live in now!
Even if you don’t find a personal connection I’d like you to see this as part of the challenge – find inspiration in what your country’s history has in store. And don't give me the "we have no mythology"-excuse, every country has mythology, legends, fairytales I'm sure you find lots of interesting stories if you do a little bit of research.
Now, that being said: If you know your family’s roots (I’m looking at you, US-folks) and would rather

Screenshot like self drawn illustrations like the ones above are the topic of this new Game-Art-HQ art contest
Due to other projects like Link's Blacklist being ongoing now and artists being working on it or the Final Fantasy tribute, this contest starts right now and endures till wednesday the 6th November
Recreating a screenshot with the own artstyle as seen in the megaman fanarts by Pertheseus and the Street Fighter III one above is something complicated and needs time and creativity, i guess that not only the results can be some great looking and unusual illustrations of video games, but also be a true challenge for participating artists.
rules: 1 entry per artist, no strong violence, no nudity, no fetish stuff, its up to you what kind of a screenshot you use as reference and also which game is totally your choice. If
