Long time no see. Sorry for being almost invisible here, but life has been incredibly demanding since I last had the chance to post. Of course I've been busy creating for my shops in the 3D world, as well as adjusting to a few twists that have been thrown my way in recent weeks.

First and foremost, my oldest son, who many of you may or may not know was born with a rare skin condition called congenital nevus, was recently also diagnosed with autism and ADHD.

As you can imagine, it's a bit of a pill to swallow after seven years of thinking he was okay aside from the spots on his skin. Still, he continues to inspire us all, being in the top 4% in his grade level for Reading and top 5% for math. He's incredibly bright, but has a very, very difficult time staying focused to the point his teacher showed us a video of him dancing around the room while the rest of the class sat quietly for a lesson. So, needless to say, I've focused all my energy as of late on learning more about his condition and it's been quite involved in trying to understand everything I can do as his parents to help him continue to grow up as normally as possible without feeling like he's different than his friends and classmates. Thank goodness his teacher is so understanding and as patient as she has been. Without here, I doubt we'd be at this point, but perhaps some where much worse with how active he is. 

Likewise, with the shift of attention to him, I'm not throwing out content as fast as I would like, but it's with good reason obviously. Family first is my number one rule. I know my groups here have suffered as well and I feel bad about it, but ya have to have the right priorities, ya know? 

In the meantime, I'm happy to announce that I'm still alive and well, doing what I can in the art world and would like to personally like to thank everyone who's been supportive from the start. You all who have are also one of the reasons I'm able to keep going every day with what I love to do so much. I can't thank you enough. 

For now though, much work to do and I've gotta pick my little hero up from school soon. Stay tuned though. New stuff, art and content, on the way. :hug:

Don't mind the mess. Tired of the old skin and working on a new one. This one by :iconsliding-panda: will be the norm until I can get around to finishing the one I had in mind. 

That said, IT'S CONTEST TIME!! :squee: It's been a few years since I've hosted one so this should be interesting to say the least. :giggle:

We'll call this one, "Welcome to Fall"

Here's the basic information you'll need to get started.

:star: Objective: Create an image showcasing one or more of the SWD ladies, dress expansions, and/or REBELLION expansions from my shops. Your image could be a simple portrait or an elaborate scene depending on your interpretation of the season. Atmosphere and emotion are a plus... really take us into how you feel about fall with your image. The image that best captures the essence of autumn and invokes that warm and fuzzzy feeling will be declared the winner.

:bulletblue: 
:bulletblue: Rules: :bulletblue: :bulletblue:

1) Purchase and one or more of my characters or expansion packs from my shops to create an image that celebrates the coming of autumn. One of my lovely ladies and/or one of the expansions I created from Content Paradise, Renderosity, or YURDigital must be used to be considered for this contest. That is the ONLY requirement that will determine if your entry will be considered for the contest. There will be an automatic disqualification for lack thereof.

2) Portraits and Landscape oriented images must be at least 800x1000, but no bigger than 2400x3000 and cannot include anything of sexually explicit nature. 

3) Submit that image via e-mail to contests (at) silverwind3d.net. With e-mail, include your name, title of image, Renderosity username, and software you used. 

4) Entries will be accepted now until October 16, 2013. Winners will be announced on November 1, 2013. 

5) The winner will receive a $50 Renderosity gift certificate and their image will be featured on my website. 

6) You may post your images else where once created and submitted for consideration, but all entries MUST be newly created to be entered. 

Good luck every one! :hug:
