Mega Monthly Challenge ENDS TONIGHT!

6 min read

Deviation Actions


The new challenge will start tomorrow!  Look for a journal from Elandria for the announcement of that one.

I am in the process of moving right now, so if you commented or noted me your entry and I haven't replied yet, DON'T WORRY! I will get to it soon, and as long as it's a valid entry and in by the end of today, you will be fine :)  Judging will happen after I've collected all the entries.

Hey, check it out!  It's a brand new monthly stock use challenge, brought to you by Elandria, Aeirmid, and me!  The main idea is to make some art and have fun, while using previously unused stock (or stock with very few uses).  Each month will have a different theme, and we will try to make them interesting and much different than what you've seen before.

This month's theme: NOTHINGNESS

Da Roolz

  • Use either (or both) of the stocks below in a NEW artwork (must be submitted to DA after the start of the challenge).
  • Use any other legitimate stock you like. All stock used must be properly credited with a link. If the stock is your own, mention that as well. We want to be able to trace where every little thing came from!
  • All stock use must comply with the stockers' rules. Remember, you must also credit, even if that is not part of the stockers' rules.
  • The artwork must fit the theme somehow.  You may be asked to explain if it is not clear.
  • Challenge runs from the first of the month til the last day of the month.  All entries must be in by midnight DA time on the last day of the month.
  • Submit entries by posting a link in the comments, or by sending a note to me (PirateLotus-Stock).
  • Entries must mention they are for the challenge, with a link.
  • Enter as many times as you like, but you can only win once!
  • One artist per entry (no collaborations).
  • Any digital and traditional media will be accepted as long as you can use the stock in it.

Compulsory Stock

Until Death... 20 by Elandria Rievaulx Abbey Ind Red 29 by Elandria
You must use AT LEAST one of these two stock images in your entry.


3 or fewer entrants: features for all entrants
4+ entrants: One winner will receive 200 points and a feature
10+ entrants: One or two winners will receive 200 points and a feature each

We're not sure how this will go, so prizes will be adjusted once we find a good rhythm.  It's probable that we will be giving more than what is mentioned here.

Ok, that's it, go create some stuff!!

It’s curious how things are interconnected.

Thanks for this. It inspired Nothing Will Come of Nothing, with a Black Hole;

-which inspired The Explorer At The Event Horizon, a tribute to Dr. Stephen Hawking. :thanks:

Good luck with the Kickstarter is LIVE, for the Group Stock Extravaganza. 
That sounds exciting! :nod:

Oooh that's very interesting ^.^  Also you reminded me I haven't done a Mega Monthly Challenge in foreverrrr

Thanks for the luck :)  We are at about 35% funded right now, but it's all or nothing.  Feel free to promote it if you want, no pressure though!  We can use all the help we can get XD  It's going to be epic and crazy and fun.  There will be SO MUCH STOCK!  We're going to hate ourselves when we have to go through it all haha!
