Mega Monthly Challenge


CHALLENGE HAS ENDED! Winners will be announced soon!


The October Mega Monthly Challenge is 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.

Last month had one entry,
Fae Fall by Can-Cat by Can-Cat
Thank you for entering, lovely ^.^ Hopefully there will be more competition this month!




This month's theme: STORY OF DEATH






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. Interpret it however you like, but 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



You must use AT LEAST one of these two stock images in your entry.

Cuervo Texture 4 by Falln-Stock
Texture 197 by Malleni-Stock



Prizes


Feature for all winners and entries from lauraypablo!

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!!

This is my take on "The Grim Reaper", Harvesting Time. Everything has a limited time, and will be harvested with Cronus's scythe, in the end.

This was my first idea for the challenge, Aphrodite and Kerrie. (The Keres are like The Valkyrie.)

Liberte was inspired by the challenge. (Both textures were used to distress the poster and cement.)

This is my second take on the theme, Lonesome Highway. Actually, it's framed in the background, in Death and Taxes. The Texture 197, by Malleni-Stock, gives the road a light rain.

Here's one story, we all face, Death and Taxes.  Grim Reaper - NaNoEmo14 Day 21  (Well, unless you have a billion dollars to loose; so, you can avoid paying them; and, have your own cryogenic chamber; so, you can postpone it.  :nod: )
