Hello everyone,

Welcome to a second edition of a brand new art challenge courtesy of your Community Volunteers. We present to you a revised version of the last "I Challenge You" contest wherein this time you will not be paired with other deviants but rather you will work individually and be challenged by a Community Volunteer! We hope this will help get you out of your comfort zone and practice your creative skills, this time on a very individualistic level.

How it works:


Step 1


Leave a comment on this journal with: the specific art medium you'd like to be challenged within, and a list of things you refuse to create. Do not include any other information, this is all we require from you.

>Please try to keep the list short of your objections, it should only be things you truly object to creating.

>You may choose only 1 type of art medium to be challenged within. Please choose from the list below.

Step 2


A Community Volunteer will pick a challenge to issue you, which will be sent to you via note by Mrs-Durden

Step 3


Complete your challenge to the best of your abilities within the allotted 30 days and leave a comment which links to your final product on this journal!

Example:

Laura receives a challenge that was issued to her by mondieudelaviarge. He wants her to photograph a flower that resembles the female anatomy, in an artistic manner. She brainstorms and creates what she believes is the best result she can come up with, and comes back to this journal, leaving a comment that says "mondieudelaviarge challenged me to photograph a flower that resembles the female anatomy, in an artistic way. Here is the result: [Insert Link]"

Deadline [extended!]:


Participants will have 30 days to complete the challenge they've been issued, and leave a comment on this journal explaining what the challenge they were issued was and linking to the resulting piece of art.

The Schedule:


June 1st - 15th: Sign-Up period. Deviants complete Step 1.

June 20th:
A Community Volunteer issues a challenge for each deviant they were assigned to, Step 2 is completed.

June 22nd - July 22nd:
Step 3 is completed by 11:59 PM Pacific Time on July 22nd.

Prize:


We will select three artists who completed their challenge with the most skill and creativity to win the following prizes:


1st place: 3 month core membership, or the equivalent 1,200 Points
2nd place:
400 Points
3rd place:
300 Points

Why the changes?


Our last version of I Challenge You was a huge success in terms of sign ups and turnout, except for the fact that a lot of partners were left alone as their partner disappeared or could not complete the challenge for whatever reason. It seemed unfair for all these deviants who had created great art, to be disqualified simply because their partner disappeared. Therefore, we tweaked it so that you're the only one you rely on now, and you all have a fair chance at winning!

Sorry, where should I look at to see the journal about the winners? I mean, in every group you mentioned there will be a journal? Because I'm member just of a pair of groups like CRLiterarure and dASupporters.

Unfortunately work got in the way and I couldn't finish my challenge in time, but I'd love to post it here nevertheless as a thank you for the amazing prompt I got (and that unfortunately couldn't fill out as I originally wanted):heart:
 Hades' bride original flower crown by giusynuno
For the prompt:
"I challenge you to create an elaborate head decoration to go with your next dress, or a past one if you don't have plans to make one soon. "

I do apologize, due to life circumstances I wasn't able to finish the piece I was working on in time for the deadline.  Which I also had wrong for some reason.  I love the contest idea though and sorry I missed the deadline!

I was challenged by :icontiganusi: who said: "Using shading techniques like you used in "Sleeping Fox", I challenge you to make a portrait of a person. It can be as abstracted or as realist as you are comfortable attempting." This is the result: mysticishfully.deviantart.com/…
