Librarian's Choice - Closed! Judging has begun! And the contest is closed! We got some amazing entries in this time around! I hope to have the judging results back within a week at the latest. That will also give me some time to post a new exclusive back for winners to choose from, as well as letting out other prize donators figure some stuff out!
Also, just FYI - we seem to have lost 2 of our prize donators (and one entrant) into the Deviation in storage/Account on hiatus ether. If you know A-Wakefield/Mandies-stock in the RW, can you have them contact me to know if they will be back in time to be judged/donate as promised?
Thanks so much guys!!!

REMINDER AND PRIZE UPDATE
Enter if you dare . . .
Ombre-De-Nuit is a high-level "dark" digital group here on dA. The administrators of the group are darkly pleased to present you, our members, with our latest challenge: The Brothers Grimm meet Burton.
Your task, should you dare to undertake it, is to twist a Grimm Fairytale into a Burton-style Nightmare.
You can find examples of Grimm fairytales here. Some popular ones include Rapunzel, Hansel & Gretel, and Cinderella. You can choose one Grimm fairytale to twist; it's fine just to depict a scene of your choosing or make one up on your own. But, the fairytale should be at least somewhat recognizable, and it must have elements that are Burtonesque.
Think about what Burtonesque means. What is the undercurrent between Sweeney Todd, Beetl

REMINDER - New Contest: Hell's BellesWhat is this?REMINDER - New Contest: Hell's Belles2 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
This is a brief contest, meaning that you will have only one month to complete it. It is a personal contest, meaning I'm doing this on my own, and it's not the huge project/contest to which I alluded in an earlier post. That's still coming.
This contest will run from March 7th to April 6th, 2015. It is something I've wanted to do for a while to meet new people and to get people involved in the community.
Who can enter?
I will only accept photomanipulations, digital mixed media work, and digital paintings/drawings. These are the only media I feel comfortable judging. I apologize to those of you who do not use these media.
The theme of this contest is Hell's Belles. The theme is indeed a pun on "hells bells," so you can rock out to AC/DC's iconic song as you contemplate your entry. (See above.)
By "Hell's Belles," I am referring to women who roc

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.
These are textures created digitally by

It's that time again.
For this contest, you are being offered a "stock bank" to select your stocks from. There is no particular theme; just wing it!
The majority (but not 100%!) of your manipulation must contain stocks from the given choices. You may find some textures or other little odds and ends to use. Also, you do not need to use a piece from each category listed below (but you can use more than one from the same category if you'd like). All stock/textures you are using outside of the bank must be legit.
Make sure you read each stock artists' rules! This is a must. Also, always give proper credit and notify of usage. Please remember to do this, or the entry will not be accepted.
There will be 3 different categories: beginner, intermediate, and advanced (when submitting your entry or entries via note,

This challenge has ended. Thank you for the entries, and for a successful first run!
The winners will be selected within a couple days.
You've heard of flash mobs, right? Large groups of people that meet in public places and perform in some way for a short amount of time, then disperse and act as if nothing happened, leaving everyone else surprised and confused? I figured I'd try to incorporate something like that into a short challenge.
You will be given a theme. The idea is to quickly piece together a manip based on that theme. Because the time limit to complete it will be short, technical skill will not be heavily judged.
There will be more of these challenges, but they will not be on a set schedule. Like a flash mob, they're meant to surprise you and keep you on your toes.
