IMPORTANT NOTE: Everytime I look at this piece especially on different screens, I realize more and more how much the colors are off and how I'd like to work more on blending some parts better. I will be replacing this with my advised piece some time today. Thanks!    ****I reworked the piece so I have posted the updated version. I think it looks much better. ****

There has been many changes in that time. Today we bring you DeviantArts only contest group for dark and horror artists.Thats right, instead of opening another group for this endeavor I have converted this one. It just made sense to me.
The contest group will be the main focus point of the group but dont worry we will still be featuring Artists and partaking in "BLOOD SOAKED JUNE" and the rest of the customs that we have made during this last 8 years. So please join in, join up, and together we will continue to be the most active group on dA.

How it works
There is no stock associated with this contest you are free to use  any stock you find.
 You will be creating a scene using crows in a dark way.
Here are a few examples...

HERE'S YOUR MAGIC PLACESparkle out of the hat  

Steoh wave Cheers and Applause - NaNoEmo Day 8 This dark and emotive work of art shows us the excellent use of the resources used.

The scene is extremely expressive;  The little girl surrounded by crows clings to her teddy bear , gives feelings of fear. An adorable blue butterfly is 

 on one arm of the bear. The orenge lights contrast on the BG with the rest of the scene giving the aspect of horror!!!!!!

 The work is fantastic done!!!!!!
 Beautiful composition.

 Daisy thank youfor sharing this Emotional-Art between us!!!!!!!!!!    :doublehug: revampclap remake 1bPinkSmilie  

                                                                  Get Together

Very cool idea dear Amanda, and it's a very lovely artwork. Adding lens flare to the crows' eyes is a fantastic idea.

For sure, they are extreme! Often our most prophetic dreams,though they usually need deep study. I'm big into dream work, So I enjoy the ride:)
