Unused Stock Contest

Contest is now CLOSED

Thank you to everyone that entered!  Judges will convene and decide a winner shortly!

All entries can be seen at: piratelotus-stock.deviantart.c…

Who wants a contest?

Well, I haven't done a contest in a while, so it's about time :)  This one is going to be about using stock that has previously not been used!  This will give the artists a chance to do something unique with stock that has not been worked with before, and the stockers will get to see a bigger variety of their stock used.

Ms. lindowyn-stock had an unloved stock project/challenge at one time, and many people still have "Unloved Stock" folders in their galleries.  I think this is a brilliant idea, so I want to bring it back up and do a contest revolving around it :)

The Rules!

  • Contest starts NOW and ends January 20th (entries must be submitted no earlier than Nov 10)
  • Digital or Traditional art only
  • All stock used must follow stockers' Terms of Use AND be credited with a link (even if that is not in the ToU)
  • Please state in your description that the artwork is for this contest with a link
  • Enter as many times as you want, but you can only win once.  One artist per entry (no collaborations)
  • Use AT LEAST ONE of the stocks from the pool below in your new artwork
  • (You don't need to use entirely previously unused stock for your work)
  • Submit your entry by posting a link to your work in the comments on this journal, or by noting me.

Entries will be judged based on creativity and skill, plus a small bonus if using more than one of the stocks in the pool.  Judges are some of the people whose stock is in the pool

I tried doing a digital drawing for this contest, but since I'm new to digital drawing and I've had so little time to focus on the drawing, I won't be able to finish it in time for this contest. I will finish it nevertheless, eventually. :D
