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.
So much water - contest #12This contest has ended. The winners announcement can be found here.So much water - contest #123 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
I don't swim where I can't see the bottom.
This time we have a rather loose contest theme - as another Autumn approaches, and the rainy days with it, let's bring this water in. Whether it be salt water in an ocean or a massive wall of rain, your submission must have a huge amounts of water in it. Well, for a 2" tall fairy, a bowl of water might be a lot, if you think of it. But for a giant, ain't no little puddle going to work in this contest.
Obviously enough, since this group is called this and not that, and our mood is exactly what it is, you need to think about it, too.
Deadline: the 25th of October 2014.
Limit of submissions: one piece per member.
The entry must be prepared for the contest precisely.
You must be a member to participate.

Myths and legends Contest OpenedWho hasn't heard of myths or legend of the past ? who hasn't wondered if they were real or just a story to put kids to sleep ? Who hasn't had an interest as slight as it may have been in those stories that populated ancient civilizations and are still alive today ?Myths and legends Contest Opened2 months ago in Personal More Like This
In the past years people have started asking themselves questions at the light of new discoveries and the gaps in the classical history taught to us. To many questions stay unanswered and we are left to choose between believing or laughing at those records from an ancient time.
For my second contest i chose to go for this theme as i find it to be quite cultural.
Your task will be to work on one uncommon myth, legend or deity of the past.
By uncommon i mean one that we don't often hear about so Greek, Roman, Egyptian and Viking mythology are forbidden.
I want you to go and research the myths, legends and gods of the other parts of the world. There has been so many civilizations and so many legends left behind but our general
Manip Academy 1: Parallelism, by Carlos-QuevedoI am posting this on behalf of Carlos-Quevedo. Feel free to leave comments here, but please note that this is Carlos' work, not mine! Please share your gratitude with him for sharing his knowledge with us. -AeirmidManip Academy 1: Parallelism, by Carlos-Quevedo4 months ago in Personal More Like This
One of the most important things I use in my work is about “Parallelism and Symmetry”. These subjects are related with the order of the elements in a composition, the layout of resources. A parallel and symmetric use of elements in a composition produces and effective transmission to the view; it expresses an easy comprehension of direction.
The use of geometric forms to order the elements in your composition is a very good way to make your art effective. You can see the next examples about how I order the resources.
In these cases, I put several elements organized to the same direction or similar forms to get symmetry. Of course, not all the elements have to be parallel, but the parallel elements you
