Art History Spotlight: Surrealism
Greetings and salutations, deviants!  Today, I bring to you the second edition of the monthly Art History Spotlight series!
As you know from our last edition of Impressionism, The Art History Spotlight Series will be exploring various movements in art, the technique used therein, major artists behind it and it's influence on dA!
The second edition focuses on Surrealism, as decided by this poll.  
I'm happy this was chosen, not just because it's such a popular and recent movement, but can be misrepresented and confused often.
So with no further ado, I present to you...
as defined by Merriam-Webster
: the principles, ideals, or practice of producing fantastic or incongruous imagery or effects in art, literature, film, or theater by means of unnatural or irrational juxtapositions and combinations

Traditional Portrait Contest
:heart:Tradtional Portrait Contest!:heart:
I've been joining a lot of contests lately, so I wanted to try hosting one instead for a change- A Portrait Drawing Contest!! :D
:bulletblue:What can I enter?
You can enter a portrait of a person made with any traditional medium (pencil, charcoal, pastel, paint, markers, etc.) Your entry must be made for this contest specifically...meaning it must be created within this time frame- September 14th- October 16th. You may enter up to 2 entries. (I'm really Sorry digital artists, and photographers...I just think those are too different of catergories to judge fairly.)
:bulletblue:How do I submit my entry?
Please put : icongabbyd70 : (without the spaces) or a link to my journal in your "Artists Comments" and then send me a note with a link to your portrait drawing.
:bulletblue:Who will be judging?
I will be judging, but I will also ask the opinions of my 2 lovely sisters,

If you are watching me, you probably have pretty much my whole gallery in your inbox again. After taking advice from several people, I waited for a cloudy day (today) and took pictures of all my traditional work. The results were fantastic and far superior to any scan or indoor shot I had previously done. It's taken several hours to edit all the pictures and reupload them, but they are here :)

Dear Fellow Deviant,

As you have kindly faved my St George and the Dragon Cross design, I ask you to cast your vote for me again between now and June 12th at [link] This is for all the marbles.

The jury will make the final selection for the half-million-dollar commission taking into consideration the public preference, so make sure you have your say!

I very much appreciate your help in achieving this coveted award.

Ah yes I've seen your DA profile before :) I'm a bit of a fan. Your work is wonderful (I'm still a noob)
