Challenge Challenge - Daine Winners





50 entries, wow!!! Thank you to everybody who entered this challenge :highfive:
This was an interesting stock image to use because the costume and prop already implies so much about this character, that it leaves little room for an artist to expand upon. I choose these images to be in the top ten because the artists have used interesting background images to create magical scenery, some them feel like they are screenshots from video games. By setting these scenes they begin to tell a story of the world of this character, who she is fighting or creatures she wants to hunt.



My Favourite Entry
'Red Woods' by Nobody A twist on the Red Riding Hood fairytale, she is no victim in this forest.

Challenge Challenge - Crowned Winners



Creative Challenge - CrownedCan you believe it has been almost 5 years since the last time I ran one of these challenges... Wow.
Someone recently mentioned how these challenges had helped inspire them during a troubled time in their life, I thought it might be a good idea to start them up again.
So here we go!.....

Deadline - One month from today = December 11th (12pm AWST) 
:bulletred: Create an original artwork using this image Crowned, all mediums will be accepted.

Please see all the entries here: Creative Challenge - Crowned




I was totally blown away by the enthusiastic response to this challenge! 78 entries is a fantastic result.
Everyone who entered a deserves a big congratulations for giving this a go, I saw that in many descriptions this new creation was the first they had felt inspired enough to make in a long time and that is a fabulous achievement.
The images I chose for the top ten all show merits of storytelling, they expand on the original stock image in a creative way. Creating a scene by adding landscape elements or original graphic designs that are different to the usual photo-manipulation style.

In exactly one week I will be leaving to go on one of the biggest adventures I've yet to take.

My whole family, lead by my mountaineer dad, will be hiking up to the top of the Nepalese mountain Mera Peak.
While 
not one of the big monster mountains of the world, it will still be an incredibly challenging journey, and one I am super pumped about.

Surviving dangerous plane landings, Crossing shaking rope bridges, Sharing mountainside cliff paths with yaks, Praying at buddhist shrines, using ice picks to climb ice walls, and breathing the crisp fresh air at 6476m. I will be channeling my inner Indiana Jones and imagining I am a member of the Fellowship of the Rings on this journey.
 i will of course be taking as many photos as I possibly can (many of which I am sure will end up as stock references)

My dad climbed Everest in 1988, the same year  I was born. In fact my mum was  3 months pregnant with me when she followed him up to Everest base camp. So for him to revisit that part of the world and take his 4 adult children (plus my boyfriend, who jokes my dad is going to push him off a cliff) this adventure a very rewarding full circle moment.


follow me on instagram for updates on the journey. My username is faestock.










There is a different kind of exciting project in the works….. 'The Group Pose References for Artists kickstarter!’

Pulling together the posing expertise of four amazing stock artists , this will be sure to deliver some epic awesomeness.

Seeking funding on kickstarter www.kickstarter.com/projects/2…  If you want to help create something wonderful this year, this would be a great one to invest in. :highfive:




:heart: :heart: :heart:
Jessica
