Contest - Can't Turn Back the YearsUPDATE: there is a new end date, in stead of using a fixed date, this contest will be over, when I finish the drawing. I will not post any WIP, so it could be this month, next month, end of this year, next year
Almost end of the year, time for a new contest. A lot of entries were posted for my last one, and I am at this moment busy at drawing the prices for the 2 winners. So it's a good time for something different and new...
I have been working for about 3 weeks on my new drawing now. Nothing on paper yet, but I have been creating my reference in Photoshop. I call it 'Beauty and the Beast' for now, but that is just a working title.
There is a big difference with my other work. There I just use a photo created by fellow artists on dA. For this one, I had an image in my head that would not be easy to find in a single reference. Therefore I worked for already about 10 hours on creating my own, using multiple sources.

So many works of art, kept out of sight
Missed deviations of which there are plenty
With favourites counting less than twenty
So every week a fresh feature there’ll be
Displaying twenty invisibles for all to see
No longer will these works be left to hide
Twenty Under Twenty shall stem the tide
Continuing it's goal to showcase beautiful art, regardless of media :iconTheFavouriteShowcase: brings to you on a weekly basis, those unloved works we class as the INVISIBLES
So remember to tune in every week to the Twenty Under Twenty feature and help us to bring these works of art into the light and over the twenty favourites mark.
These are the contributors that have volunteered their time to ensure your work stands out! Thank you all so much!

Today I am calling all of you graphite traditional realist artists. You, who take pride in drawing very realistic, photo-like. You think your drawings are good? Think again!
I envy you. Graphite and I have never been friends, and most of my watchers know it. I can't draw as well as you do using graphite. And I admire you.
And that is why I challenge you to participate in my new contest: The Graphite Challenge 2012!
Take a look at my photo:
Before you decide to accept the challenge and draw it, read the rules. Failure to comply with them will get your drawing rejected.
RULES OF THE GRAPHITE CHALLENGE 2012:
1. You must draw the photo above using graphite pencils over white paper. Yes, erasers, tortillions and blending stumps are allowed. No other traditional technique or digital art will be allowed.
2. You must draw 100% of the photo, with the same aspect ratio of 3:2. Cropping the original picture is not allowed. You may extend the margins, th
The Then & Now Feature.:iconshakecancerplz:The Then & Now Feature.3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
The idea for this feature has developed over the past month or so, triggered by the comments we all get from time to time, like; "'I'll never be able to draw like that" or "I wish I could learn how to do that".
Also around a month ago I was asked a few questions by a very sweet, polite 16 year old girl on here who was extremely grateful that I took the time to answer her.
To cut a long story short, I've taken this girl under my wing in the hope of giving her the encouragement and feedback she lacks from those around her and also to develop her skills and knowledge to the point where she feels confident enough to experiment and grow on her own.
So, this feature is mainly for those just starting out in the world of graphite along with those doubting that they could ever improve beyond their current level and is just a very small selection of graphite artists I both admire and aspire to become as good as. All were chosen for this feature due

Ivan's greatest passion is art, because "it allows the artist to create the impossible" Thus, he continues to create a world of possibilities. Each of Ivan's work, has a unique signature of eyevan. The eye represents the the concept of "beauty is in the eye of the beholder", where each individual has a different perception of beauty. "I hope my paintings have opened your eyes and change your look on life..." says Ivan.
"Owning a piece of art is beyond the physical canvas itself, but owning a piece of time."

Texture Your World ContestTell us the story of your world in textures!Texture Your World Contest2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
We are surrounded 24 hours a day by objects that have texture, they may be smooth or bobbly, old or new, bold, bright, shiny or dull. You might see a texture every day and never notice it until you start looking. Do you sit at a desk that's textured, or pass an interesting tree on the way to work or school?
We want you, in the form of a triptych (thats 3 images forming a larger image see example here - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Triptych ) to tell us the story of your textured world. Each individual texture should stand on its own, both as a useful resource and as a cohesive part of the whole story. What story you tell through your texture triptych is up to you - but they must be textures that tell a story of your world in some way.
There are 3 categories for this contest, each of which you can submit to twice.

You really want to, you've worked hard to develop the skills you have and you enjoy every minute of doing what you love. And besides, people say that your artworks are...nice. Cute. Doesn't that count for something? Sure it does, there is no reason to panic and pointlessly push yourself forward. Enjoy your coffee break!
Besides, even if you didn't like the current level as much, there is absolutely nothing you can do about it at the moment. So many unfortunate happenings stand right between you and your dream. Recognizing any of the following?

You're right! After all, you are a human being, not a machine, waking up early every morning, heading to school/work, afterwards taking care of the household/kids/your homework, studying, you barely even finish all the tasks during the 24 hours that's been given to everyone.
