New Challenge: Radioactive
Winners will be announced in a few days.
You took a risk when your gut warned you not to, and boarded the space shuttle. For the first thousand or so light years, the ride seemed smooth.
Everything started to look up, so you relaxed a little and mingled with the others on the shuttle. The evening began to wind down and suddenly
it was time for all of the passengers to enter sleep mode. When you woke, you realized the shuttle had crash landed and you had no idea what planet
you were even on! Now visualize what it was like. What did you see? What strange things lurked in the background? One more thing...
it was a RADIOACTIVE planet!
Everything seemed to glow in the night, or day...could you even tell what time it was???
Welcome to the new challenge hosted by

Do you dare to set foot on an unknown planet?

Advanced, Intermediate, Beginner: Type vs Level
So, conservancy has a beautiful idea for Advanced, Intermediate and Beginner filters for browsing art. Here- > Popular Results Browse and i agree with him. In some groups here on DA, however, i've seen that the very idea of Advanced, Intermediate and Beginner is different.
I'll give an example of photo-manipulation, as that's what i do.
Here in DA, the levels are set via Skill level of the Artist and not on the work itself. By this, i mean that if an expert artist does some Simple work, it is categorized as Advanced, while another artist who does extensive manipulation, is categorized as Beginner/Simple, since the Group admins think, that the Artist's work is not up to the set standards.
In reality, an expert artist can do all three levels of Photo-manipulation, ie, Advanced, Intermediate & Simple. A beginner or intermediate artist too, can also do the same.
Whoa, what?!
Yes, absolutely! For you see, some DA groups

Winners of the Madness and Wonder Challenge


Winners Receive:
Stock Exclusives from poserfan-stock  TheArmouredBear  TheStockWarehouse @renata-s-stock
:points: from Reddawgi
Features by TheStockWarehouse and poserfan-stock

The Challenge was to illustrate Madness and Wonder. Interpretation was up to each artist, and there were six interesting submissions to this challenge. Here are the two winners:
"Madhatter Space Tours" by surreal1st1cp1llow :iconsurreal1st1cp1llow:

This entry is a perfect combination of madness and wonder. The psychedelic combination of colors and presentation has a surreal figure looking on, taking in the fantastical interactions; or is this actually happening within the mind of the figure? Madness and wonder here is a visual combination, creating an actual visual of a madness that can be construed as wonder, both at the same time from exactly the same image.

"Pandora's Box Club"

Wow, this is quite a divergence from what many of us envision for the concept of "Pandora's box." Yes, it's edgy and a bit on the risque side but given the extreme detail, blending and color application-it's a WINNER hand's down. I note too, that a great deal of manipulating to make these images blend has been done. For e
