Welcome to our next big contest


We hold 4 larger contests a year


I really love this time of year, cool weather, and winter setting in. I even like the snow to some extent.

So while the snow is not here yet and we are not tired of it, lets play in the snow on this one!

How it Works by nitchwarmer

We are going to be creating a winter scene turning your submission

Blue. Get it? blue in color.

You may use any resources from any legal site, as well as DeviantARt

We will supply you with three stock providers to use for your animal stock. We are requiring that you use at least one animal for your entry.

No Humans

Bueno soy nueva y quiero participar no se que nivel sería yo por el resto mis preguntas están contestadas acá abajo!!

Do You Speak English?

¿Cuál es mi nivel?

Sé que sus veces confusas. Cada grupo tiene sus propias reglas y todos pertenecen a varios grupos del concurso.

Sé que a veces mi arte varía en calidad. Tal vez me distraje, o tal vez sólo corrí, pero la calidad es siempre diferente. Este grupo le permitirá cambiar los niveles en función de sus propios talentos.

Ahora bien, no creo que se pueda hacer un trabajo patear el culo y entrar en el nivel 1, eso es sólo el engaño y le dirigirá hasta el nivel adecuado. :| (Blank Stare)

Los niveles son los mismos aquí como la mayoría de los grupos ...

Nivel 1 novatos: el que acaba de empezar y todavía tiene problemas con cosas como la profundidad de campo e incluso sombras. Usted ve a sí mismo como tener mucho camino por recorrer antes de convertirse a gusto con lo que está haciendo.

Nivel 2 intermedia: se siente más cómodo con sus programas, pero todavía están aprendiendo las cuerdas. las cosas están llegando más fácil y no son hasta el punto donde usted se considera un profesional.

Nivel 3 avanzó: Usted es más seguro de sus habilidades y las cosas vienen fácil para usted. No ha dominado todo pero confiamos y lo qué no tomar el tiempo que lo hacían antes.

Ahora bien, si usted tiene preguntas es el momento. Voy a ayudar tanto como pueda. LOL

Espero que esto ayude un poco con las opciones confusas que tienen que hacer para sus entradas.

What are the rules for names or titles on the images?
nitchwarmer's avatar
That is up to you. You can name it what ever you want.
StarfireArizona's avatar
Ok great thank you :)  Submitted a piece to another group recently and it almost wasn't accepted because I put the title in one corner with my name as I always do.  Figured I'd best ask :)

Just wanted to ask that we can create any artwork and include blue objects/colors in our artwork? With that being said, atleast one animal should be included from the provided candidates for stock images. Am I right? :D 

Plus, what is the end date of the contest? and

Where do we have to submit the artwork?

Is it necessary to create artwork specifically for this contest?
nitchwarmer's avatar
Yes and you are right so far,
Dec 31st.
To the contest folder
 I hope this helps
 There are a few more rules you can read about the contest in the blog....

SUPER>> MONOCHROME BLUE..    love the idea. i would like to be a member so i can have a try at this please.  I got a message saying i could come and play.   send me links etc to inform me of dates and what i have to do to participate ..  and thanks for letting me have a try at this comp. 

I have a clear (hopefully) understanding of the requirements. there are three stockists of who's animal stock have to be included in the creation  Mallenie , Momotte2 and Lakela(Ria) .. the creation limit is no humans and the works is to be monochrome blue.   what one does with the animal image is up to the artist. 

This old lady found :  how to request to become member and found the count down for comp.  YAH for grey power . heheee

I want to clarify: all the colors must be blue? Or we can add a little other other colors? I think fully blue is too flatly;)
nitchwarmer's avatar
You can add more colors but more than 50 percent must be blue/ Good morning.
Lora-Vysotskaya's avatar
Sure. Good evening;)
