Deviation Actions

Six years ago, on the 12th November 2010, Stephanos MamoruK1N founded this group.
Last October Stephanos gave me the points to upgrade us to Super Group, so we have much to celebrate!

Let's start our festivities with a Contest!

Contest Announcement (12th Nov 2016)

Today starts our contest with the theme "Portraits" at the group AllArtSupport.

What do we want to see?
Good art, amazing portraits, all kind of traditional or digital portraits, photography or photomanipulated portraits. 

But what are portraits?
"Portraits are works of art that record the likenesses of humans or animals that are alive or have been alive."
"Portrait is a likeness of a person, especially of the face, as painting or a drawing."

- So, can you submit fantasy, an imaginary face?

- So, can you submit a drawing of a body in which we can not see the head?

- And can you submit a full body drawing?
Yes, but we have to see the face clearly.

Bullet; Red All works should be new (posted on DA from the 12th November 2016 until the end of the contest) and made exclusively for this contest (very important!) - so to make sure you are doing a new piece you must include in your work: a yellow flower/leaf or a blue accessory or a red ribbon - traditional artists working with graphite, charcoal or other similar medium must include one of the same objects but it can be colourless;

Bullet; Red You may submit 2 pieces on each category and who enters to one folder may also enter the other, in a total of 4 works from the same author.
The members of our affiliates can submit 1 piece to each folder;

Bullet; Red We'll accept any kind of portraits: self-portraits, celebrities portraits, animal portraits, etc. But all pieces must be a drawing or a painting (traditional and digital art) for the 1st category, and a photography or photomanipulation (being "photomanipulation" the combination of at least 2 photos) for the 2nd Category;

Bullet; Red Submit your work to the correct folders:

CONTEST 1st Category: Drawings and Paintings…
CONTEST 2nd Category: Photos and Photomanipulation…

Bullet; Red The submissions are NOT automatically accepted, during the submission period I'll supervise them to make sure each work fits the theme and follows the rules - so, you will have the chance to withdraw and submit another work. Anyway, please make sure you have followed the rules!

Bullet; Red The accepted submissions can't be removed and replaced for other work, so be sure that the work you submit to the contest is the one you want in the contest.

Bullet; Red YOU will be the judge!
ALL members entering the contest will have to vote and only the members entering the contest will vote. When the time comes I'll tell you how to vote.
