16,000 Points or 200.00 dollars (FANTASY CONTEST)Realm-of-Fantasy is helping promote this contest, though we are not hosting it.This contest is being held by::iconDreamorchid78: Dreamorchid78Full blog and details found here: http://dreamorchid78.deviantart.com/journal/Back-with-a-bang-and-CONTEST-303007033Remember deadline is July 18th so almost one month away. The contest can be from line art to a painting (digital or traditional). You can enter up to three pictures. While you don't have to pick from the list (since they're just suggestions), the drawing must fit a fantasy scenario, person or creature. A hint will be to try to incorporate a scene along with a fantasy character. You can do either evil or good. Also this MUST be original design and artwork (we're avid art fans of fantasy and know a lot of work out there so don't plagiarizer someone). Also we will disqualify any thing that looks exactly like a dark elf from WOW, Lineage II, or any other game.
Contest: Theme, Prizes and Rules.ThemeThe theme of the contest is "Family"."A Family in harmony will prosper in everything." Chinese ProverbOn wikipedia, we can find this definition: "... a Family is a group of people affiliated by consanguinity, affinity, or co-residence.In AllArtSupport we like to think that we are a family too. A family is about more than being related; is about being there when one needs you, is about feeling good only thinking about the ones you Care of.This time, the contest we're holding has a deep meaning because many around us, possibly even us, sometimes forget what "Family" truly means or how important it is and we'd really like to make you all think more about it. This is all about reminding and celebrating the Family values. Prizes 1st Place: Black dA Laptop Messenger. OR 1 Year Premium Members
The Known and Unknown Feature  + NewsThis last week I started up an awesome contest with the help of a number of other deviants, we have some amazing potential already and really looking forward to seeing the entries. In other news of my own, I had an amazing opportunity to work with and photograph George Holz who is an amazing photographer and has photographed everyone from Hugh Laurie (star of House) to Will Smith and posters for shows like Smash and Hell's Kitchen. It was an absolute honor to work with him, you can see some more of his published work here.
