1st Competition - Group Stock Challenge [CLOSED]***CLOSED***
Well, I suppose it's about time for our first competition! Lots of gallery items have been requested from artists around dA, but very few members in this group are actually active participants. So, to encourage activity, I've decided to host a fairly simple competition.
Make an artwork that follows the general theme of the group: it should focus on a fantasy warrior woman. She can be in battle or not. She can also have others with her in the artwork, though she must be the central focus of the piece. Her status as a warrior woman should be obvious. Take a look at the group gallery folders for examples of all the possibilities open to you.
Here's the caveat: the artwork can only be made from the stock images provided in the stock section of our group gallery. This means that your piece must have either used one of those stocks as a reference (3D, digital, or traditional art), or it must be in the work as part of a photomanipulation. The idea is not only

Trapped in a movie, sealed with no ending
A dreamlike state numbing my senses
Disconnected from my body, the world
Lost in a different time
The clock is ticking
But moving nowhere
Reality is slipping into an ocean of tar
When will I wake up?

DepersonalizationFor years, mirrors were a source of fascination to me. Each time I passed a reflective surface, I would pause to stare at my face, marvel at the fact that it was really mine. It didn't seem to be possible. My thoughts always felt disembodied, disconnected from what I knew was my body, and mirrors provided evidence that they belonged to the same being. Photographs and videos of me were almost a source of entertainment. It became something like a game, to see myself recorded or reflected and try to make myself believe that the girl I was seeing was connected to the thoughts I was thinking. I never thought much of it; I assumed it was normal. Everyone spoke of sounding strange to themselves on recordings, and I didn't think to ask myself if the two ideas were different.Depersonalization2 years ago in Articles & Interviews More Like This

Mary Sue is the new foot binding.If you don't know what foot binding is, go here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Foot_bindingMary Sue is the new foot binding.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Why do I draw a comparison between these two? I will explain why.
Foot binding is a classic example of a sexist practice where women are limited, quite literally and in a physical sense, to the point of serious disabilities in order to live up to a certain image of feminine beauty. A notion, if you will, of what females should be. The usage of the Mary Sue term works the same way.
Yes, I know what Gary Stus are, and yes, I know they exist. However, in the case of most male characters, it's far more acceptable to make them strong/intelligent/cunning/resourceful/capable or even more than one of these.
For female characters, this is not so. The second they show themselves to be even slightly above average in any kind of way, no matter how well-balanced they are otherwise, they're termed Mary Sues. It becomes unacceptable to even think, for one second, that female fictional charact

"Mythology can refer either to the collected myths of a group of people—their body of stories which they tell to explain nature, history, and customs—or to the study of such myths. As a collection of such stories, mythology is an important feature of every culture."
For this contest, you are invited to create an entry based around your favorite god, goddess, mythological creature, etc. However, you are encouraged to break out of the box a bit and work around a myth you are not familiar with, or one that is lesser known.

I have changed the settings on the folder, so that all non-members of the group may submit as well. However, if you'd like to join, all are welcome! (Big Grin)
I have had to tweak this contest a bit, due to the overwhelming number of fearless Halloween lover's (Big Grin) I have gotten a few messages from deviants stating that they would love to enter the contest, but they love Halloween so much...there's nothing that scares them about it!! I then got a message from another deviant who came up with the most BRILLIANT idea!

[Updated] Zoomorph Photomanipulation ContestHello watchers![Updated] Zoomorph Photomanipulation Contest2 weeks ago in Personal More Like This
First of all, I'd like to say thanks for the DD and welcome to all of my new watchers. I had promised to put up a competition once I hit 100k pageviews, and that happened over the weekend. As a thanks to all of my watchers, I open up this contest to all of you.
Well anthro or anthropomorphic isn't strictly correct when considering the origins of the words. Anthropomorphism means that a non-human entity has human-like qualities. When dealing with photomorphs, usually the base is a human and you give them animal qualities, hence the difference between anthropomorphic and zoomorphic! I suppose furry could apply to either as it has no implication that start point was either animal or human. To the layman, everything just falls under the anthro umbrella anyway!
1) Must depict a zoomorphic/anthro/furry character that contains a hybridized mix of human and animal features
2) Medium must be photomanipulation, using at least 2 stock p
