Myths and Legends: An Illustration Contest
The difference between Illustration and other art is something that many people aren't too sure about. Simply put, illustration is artwork that is created purposefully to communicate ideas, instructions or a narrative.
Telling stories is how we have learned for millenia. Cave paintings, Greek and Roman painted Urns and the Bayeux Tapestry are three excellent examples of early narrative illustration, and illustrations are still how people are taught all manner of things, from nursery to adulthood, learning everything from history to biology.
THEME - Myths and Legends
Wikipedia definitions of Myths, Legend and Folklore.
So an example of what would qualify:
:bulletred: Greek, Roman, Norse, Native American etc mythology, legends and folklore
:bulletred: Bible Stories (

Hey guys!

Sorry I've not been able to answer your messages! I've somehow managed to break my coccyx so I'm currently finding it extremely painful to sit at my computer!!

I'll answer them as soon as I can! :huggle: :heart: :love:

parochena's Profile Picture
Paulette Arochena
Artist | Professional | Digital Art
United Kingdom
My name is Paulette Arochena and I am a freelance artist based in the United Kingdom. I specialise in digitally painting cute and whimsical characters that warm the heart but also like to throw myself challenges at other things now and again.

I'm currently doing a few Schoolism courses. They're really great if you're interested!

I’m always looking for ways to improve my work and experiment with different aspects of the subject all the time. If you fancy throwing me some challenges, by all means send me a note!

Although it's not my favourite expressive media, I have also worked in digital photography, specialising in portraiture.

I also hope to increase awareness of endangered species through my work so if you have any other ways of me doing this, please feel free to suggest. You may be able to tell that I’m very fond of pandas who have now, after much work from specialists, been removed from the endangered list (2016)!!! :yay:

Apart from this, I’m quite down to earth and enjoy all sorts of things from Figure Skating to Fashion; currently working in both as a coach and costume designer. Ice cream is also good… even on cold days.

If you would like to know more...
