January Theme: New Beginning



How are you guys in the New Year? I hope you've had a great time this New Year's Eve and are looking forward to new challenges and surprises! Everything is beginning once more; did you make any resolutions? And at last, this brings me to this month's theme - New Beginning!

What can you portray? Let's think about it - is a beginning of a new season? Is a brave hero beginning an adventure? Is a wanderer setting off on the road to the unknown? Is a child being born? Or maybe someone is being raised from the dead? Or dying? Is someone in the process of creating a new, wonderful world?

As you can see, there is really a myriad of ways to interpret January's theme - be creative! Surprise us with your vision, open a new and wondrous chapter and have fun while creating the potential winner of this months challenge. :)

Don't forget to credit all stock used and use only legitimate stock!

Only ONE entry per person per month. :)

To enter, turn in your deviation to the "January 2016 Challenge" gallery folder (Don't get this confused with the folder for regular art submissions, or we'll move challenge folders to Favorites instead of Gallery.)

Your entry must be made and submitted no earlier than January 3rd, 2016 and no later than 11:59 PM PT on January 31st, 2016.

Don't forget that the prize is a 3-month Core membership (or 1200 points, your choice) from Community Relations!


December Winner


I'm pleased to announce that December winner is Shirokibo with her work "Icy winter"!



Congratulations! We will contact you soon regarding your prize!

Hi there, question about the current challenge, hope this is the right spot, would tasteful nudity (tasteful, but still, it has a mature content rating) be allowed as an entry? I did not think about that aspect until afterwards :o (Eek)
