Straw Sticks and Bricks

The portrayal of the wolf in The Three Little Pigs was really a rumour that was started to cover up some rather nasty business. Chinny Chin Pty Ltd butcher shop was a cover for what was really going on in the dark woods.

You can use also resources from outside Deviantart as well (please make sure you use stocks from legitimate sites). I wanted to promote the stock providers on Deviantart, but I also realize for this theme it can be quite difficult. I received messages from fellow deviants to allow this and also did a poll to know your opinions.
The main goal of this contest is to have FUN and to learn and challenge yourself. Good luck and I hope you come up with something extraordinary
Hello dear friends,
Thanks for all your notes, faves and support over the years since I have been a member on Deviantart! I am glad and proud to be a part of this great community! There

My ramble – when I saw this contest I was very much inspired to enter because I straight away thought of a (very poor/early days) artwork I had done 10 years ago titled The Pigs had Plans (take a look for a giggle if you want) The Pigs had Plans . The contest also coincided with a journal I was recently requested to write for :iconprojecteducate: where I was asked to share my personal journey in the area of photo-manipulation in their Being a Beginner Week

My Journey as a Beginner in PhotomanipulationBeing a Beginner Week
    Projecteducate has asked me to share my personal journey in the area of photo-manipulation, specifically about my experiences from when I was a beginner, how I progressed, learned, the struggles I faced and how I improved from my mistakes etc.
  Everyone’s journey is different, how people go about creating their art-forms and what techniques and tools they use are as varied as the artwork found on this site, so what I am sharing with you is just about me and some of my experiences.
    I joined DeviantArt eleven years ago with no intention of uploading anything, I had heard of Photoshop (PS) but I didn’t really know what could be done with it or how to use it. At that time for me DeviantArt was a website that I liked to visit from time to time to look at the amazing art.
Because of these two things putting this new artwork together was a lot of fun and I used the same cart from the first artwork as I have in this one (quite a difference to see).

Stock thanks here :heart:

What does the virus theme have to do with this picture? Why do people now have to carry this theme into every area of life, no matter how small? Isn't it enough that we are already being shit on by the crazy media for 24 hours?

Please think about it!
