:new:THE CONTEST ENDS TOMORROW AT 23:59 GMT. MAKE SURE TO SEND ME YOUR ENTRIES BEFORE THAT!
THANKS TO ALL THE ENTRANTS!
:new:

Dear Baronesses, Counts and Marquis,

As the year is dawning and winter is settling, it is with the greatest pleasure that I invite you all to a party as no one, even in Versailles or Venice, has ever seen.  We shall cross two centuries of art in one go.
So put on your best wig, because once you have crossed the gates of my chateau, the sound of viols and the flow of wine will carry you in an endless spin of lavish pleasure. Taste the finest foods; listen to the fanciest music from France, Spain an Italy; admire the elegant ladies; smell the perfumes that pervade the air of the music room. Abandon yourself to the pleasure of being entertained. Be carefree tonight, tomorrow will always come.

Yours truly,
Count Pierre.





This, dear friends and watchers, is the start of my new contest!
I planned this contest as a celebration of both my stock's second anniversary (Nov 25.) and my own 22nd birthday (Dec 4.)
It is obviously baroque related.

So what is baroque? It is a movement in art originated in the 17th century, ending in the mid 18th century. It influenced visual arts, architecture, music and even furniture making. More information here.

Now your job is to recreate this! How? Read below, dear friend!





The Rules
*Closing date: January 31stth 23:59PM GMT
*Unlimited entry per participant.
*Entries must be new and made for this contestThe art must have a baroque theme. It must reflect the 17th or 18th century in some fashion. I am flexible: it can be 18th century and more classical than baroque, I'll most likely accept it.
*The entry must use one piece of my special gallery.
*Are accepted: photomanipulations, vector/vexel, digital drawings/paintings/mixed media, traditional drawing/paintings/mixed media, artisan crafts that use my stock in some way (sculpting?).
*You can use other stock, just remember to abide by each stocker’s rules. SXC and other off-DA stock must be credited to the photographer and provide a link to the actual page of the stock picture.
*Send me your entry via note.
