:star: The Current MAT has been extended!

What are the MATs?

MAT stands for “Mass Art Trade” – a group art trade. This involves interpreting a theme, and drawing or painting (digitally) a piece for it. The entries will be judged, and voting will then begin. Everyone will have the chance to vote, and the artist with the most favoured piece will be able to choose the theme for the next art trade! (Note: this is not a popularity contest; it is meant to be fun!). There is a long runtime, so please try hard, and put your best efforts into your piece.

How long will the MAT last?

The current MAT will run from:

[ 1st April 2008, 00:00:00 GMT ]
        til [ 28th June 2008, 23:59:59 GMT ]
        til [ 28th June 2008, 23:59:59 GMT ]

The voting will run from :

[ 1st September 2008, 00:00:00 GMT ]
        til [ 7th September 2008, 23:59:59 GMT ]

What is the theme? :lightbulb:

    "A Place for Inspiration"

I've finished my piece.. how do I submit?

Once you have completed your piece to the relevant category on deviantART. Then you can note the link to your piece to DigiBrush, with the subject of the note as “MAT”.

What criteria should we consider when creating our piece?

You must create something new for this trade – this way everyone will get the same chance, and your entries will be properly suited to the theme.

The overall piece should be mostly digital painting. This involves using an art program such as Photoshop, Corel Painter, Artrage, or OpenCanvas. The use of textures or stock is allowed, but try not to make it too much of a photo manipulation.


At the conclusion of the MAT, we will announce which piece has received the most votes. The creator of said piece will get to choose the theme for the next MAT!

In addition, the artist of the piece which exhibits the most unique representation of the theme will win a 3 month sub!

Good luck to everyone, and have fun!

...More to come, this week!

Hey there, thanks for the watch.

I used to pass by the #dAmn chatroom a while ago, now I'm too busy at work :(

But I'll remember to do so as soon as possible. I wouldn't mind joining in either.
