New Challenge- WHAT LIES BENEATHGreetings Castle Folk...

New Challenge-Jokers, Jesters and HarlequinsNEW CHALLENGE- Jokers, Jesters and Harlequins
Greetings Castle Dwellers...
Lately, I've been seeing a lot of inspiring artwork using these types of models and since for many here, we're moving into Summer. That makes me think of carnivals, circuses and such. So let's have some fun working with models that fit. Game on!
Here are the details:

:bulletred: Your work MUST feature a Model , NOTE: We suggest you refrain from using The Joker as represented by Heath Ledger. Create your own story.  
:bulletred: There are a lot of stock choices to choose from in the realm of jokesters etc and lots of genres can be represented so be creative,  there are MANY ways to interpret this challenge. Go for it! Work a clever concept for us.
:bulletred: Artwork must be a new image

June Challenge and May WinnerJune Challenge: Jurassic World
Everyone had a dinosaur phase in their childhood, right? :D  emote : Dino approves New Dino :dinosrawr:   
If you missed that vital step of nerdy development, here's your chance to make up for it - or if you didn't, to revisit your childhood fantasies! This month's theme is Jurassic World, which means everything with dinos is going to be perfect. Do you want to recreate a scene form the movies? Prove that the old trilogy is better than the one currently releasing its second movie? Or maybe... create your very own dinosaur? As always, it's up to you! 

Exclamation  Please state in the description clearly that your work is created for this challenge. Works without such disclaimer will be moved to the general June folder.
Tarot Card Challege Starts Today!GROUP NEWS
Hey everyone!
Welcome to our ULTIMATE  last challenge!
I want to thank those of  you who have sent me some nice comments and I'm happy that you understand that I'll be closing the group at the end of October, 2018.
This challenge will end in a month, on July 1st, and I will be looking at your beautiful entries through two spanking new
eye lenses. Yep, I didn't say eye glasses, I said eye lenses . I will no longer be wearing glasses. Can you believe that! My son keeps walking around saying he'll never get use to me without glasses!
Okay, I'm trying to keep the challenge simple. I already owe some of you gifts, and I want to get rid of all of my
points to you rather than donate them to another group.
So let's go and REALLY do a great job on these Theme Tarot Cards! Let's show those other challenge
groups who WE are at ManipulateThis!
:bulletwhite:TITLE: Spring Tarots Challenge.
:bulletwhite: THEME: Taro
New Challenge: RadioactiveYou took a risk when your gut warned you not to, and boarded the space shuttle. For the first thousand or so light years, the ride seemed smooth.
Everything started to look up, so you relaxed a little and mingled with the others on the shuttle. The evening began to wind down and suddenly
it was time for all of the passengers to enter sleep mode. When you woke, you realized the shuttle had crash landed and you had no idea what planet
you were even on! Now visualize what it was like. What did you see? What strange things lurked in the background? One more thing...
it was a RADIOACTIVE planet!
Everything seemed to glow in the night, or day...could you even tell what time it was???
Welcome to the new challenge hosted by

Do you dare to set foot on an unknown planet?
