Greetings to the Castle folk...
I'm encouraged to share that I'm extending this contest for THREE MORE WEEKS. I just can't close this "first time" contest with more prizes to share than I have participants.
Remember the "Peculiar Children" idea is not far off of a Halloween or Gothic concept. There are prizes! Points and Stock Exclusives!! There will be features, too, along with llamas! Finish up that piece you've started, enter again or begin NOW. If there any questions at all, just ask!
For Stocks and Ideas!
We are having our first "official" Contest here and at our sister Castle If you've read "Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children", or plan to see the movie this month OR just like making art that's a bit weird, odd or peculiar then this contest is tailor made for you. Take a look at this sneak peek of the movie to get in the mood.
BIG THANKS to These Generous Sponsors of Exclusives:

Winners! Jokers, Jesters and Harlequins
Greetings Castle folk... Thanks for bearing with me in my tardiness, as the temps in SO CA were in the hundreds and high nineties these last weeks-it wreaks havoc on health matters for me. Anyway on to the winners. :bigthumb729668111: %Castle-of-Manips (https://www.deviantart.com/castle-of-manips) :thumb686322360::thumb686322360: Winners of the Jokers, Jesters and Harlequins challenge Receive: Stock Exclusives from poserfan-stock (https://www.deviantart.com/poserfan-stock) TheArmouredBear (https://www.deviantart.com/thearmouredbear) TheStockWarehouse (https://www.deviantart.com/thestockwarehouse) :points: from Reddawgi (https://www.deviantart.com/reddawgi) Features by TheStockWarehouse (https://www.deviantart.com/thestockwarehouse) and poserfan-stock (https://www.deviantart.com/poserfan-stock) :bigthumb419585851: First Place "Jocker" by :iconthundermadarts14: What a great composition showing what a jester might h

I haven't read the 2nd one yet but Chloe, my youngest did. She said she didn't like it as well as the 1st - but I think one of her favorite characters was killed off & she gets that way when you mess with her fictional characters.
I SO get that, about having favorites killed off. I've lost interest in a number of excellent tv shows for that same reason (Bates Motel comes to mind.) If the writing is done well enough, the people take on flesh and bones and thus feel very real to us, right? BTW, I LOVE the images of your daughters-these girls are lovely.
