Hello fellow Deviants! I'm excited to announce a fresh new challenge for this month! Similar to our last month's challenge, often by limiting ourselves we can often discover unexpected and inspired results! With that in mind I introduce our:

Complimentary Colors Challenge!


🎨 Hashtag used to enter: #complimentarycolorschallenge


🎨 What are complimentary colors?

Complementary colors are pairs of colors which are opposite of each other on the color wheel. As a result when they are combined or mixed they cancel each other out by producing a grayscale color like white or black. Because they are opposite on the color wheel they also create the strongest contrast with each other. Examples of complementary color combinations are: Red and green; yellow and purple; orange and blue. In addition to contrast of value, you can also use contrast of color and saturation to create a dynamic scene with a clear focal point. You can do some really neat things with just 2 colors!


🎨 When is it Due?

All entries will be due Sunday September 26th @ 11:59pm PDT


🎨 What should I draw/paint/create?

The subject matter is up to you! When you think of complimentary colors what are you inspired to create? You are only limited by how far your imagination can take you so don't hold back!


🎨 Are there any Rules?

The only rules are that you use complimentary colors and that you not post any NSFW art.


🎨 What about Prizes?

1st Place: One month of Core + membership, and 400 DA Fragments! Additionally you'll get your pick of one print from my INPRNT shop! (approximately 12x18 inches)

Top 5: One month of Core memberships, and 400 DA Fragments!

Top 10: 400 DA Fragments!


For those wondering what Core memberships mean: https://www.deviantart.com/core-membership


We will review the entries on stream the week of the 27th and winners will be announced that week as well!

Can't wait to see what you all create! Please let me know if you have any questions!

Hey all I apologize for the confusion with regards to the #onelightchallenge voting and review stream. I've had to have a bit of a schedule change this week and it's thrown things off a bit. I am preparing to teach an online class at a university in a couple weeks and I've had a lot of loose ends to wrap up to get everything submitted and ready.


Here's how it's going to go down for the One Light Challenge entries: - Tonight at 11:59pm PDT I will be closing off the ability to vote on your 2 favorite entries. If you haven't voted yet you can do so here:

- Tomorrow in the am I will publish a post announcing the winners!

- Tomorrow on stream we will review the entries and celebrate the winners on stream together! https://www.twitch.tv/stumpyfongo


Again I apologize for the confusion it's been a bit of a hectic week. Can't wait to review these on stream with you all tomorrow at 1pm MST on twitch!

Holy smokes you guys have absolutely knocked this month's #onelightchallenge out of the park! I am pretty darn blown away by how amazing this month's turnout was. I don't know about you all but I personally felt that by putting limitations on myself it actually opened me up to do something unexpected! I had a blast with this challenge and from the looks of it you guys did to! Here's the challenge for those that are curious:

I had intended to combine all of our entries this weekend and look at them on stream today but my wife got sick and was in bed all weekend so my time was spent taking care of and hanging with my daughters. As a result I am going to extend out the announcement date to Wednesday Sept 1st in order to give you all time to vote! We will be looking at these all on stream tomorrow so tune if you'd like to see my reaction to yours on stream! Make sure to follow so you can be notified for when I go live: https://www.twitch.tv/stumpyfongo Please vote, in the comments, on your favorite(s) (maximum of 2) between now and Tuesday August 31st @ 11:59 pm PDT. It should go without saying but you may not vote for your own entry. Wednesday September 1st I will make a separate post announcing the winners!

And now for all the amazing entries!
