Deviation Actions

Start Date: June 26, 2012
End Date: September 15, 2012
Theme: Bravery
Your mission is to create a manipulation that somehow expresses bravery. You will not be given anymore information than that. How you choose to portray it is up to you and only you!

Judging: This contest will be judged by me. I will not accept other judging offers.
I will not be judging by personal preference nor will I choose any "friend" to win. I will be judging based on technique, originality, and effort. I will not go easy on you if you are a beginner, your art will be judged just as fairly as the others.

Sorry guys, I guess I should have added this earlier, but I was being pressured to get off the computer.
> Manipulations only
> Slapping a filter over an image is not acceptable. You must use multiple images
> Any animal may be the subject (I don't care if its a friggin okapi, as long as it fits the theme)
> If I have any suspicion about a stolen image, I will investigate like the smexy detective I am.
> I will only post completed entries, not deviants planning to enter.
> You may enter as much as you like, though I will require 15 different artists to enter before judging.

> I will not be collecting the winners' entries - These manipulations will remain yours and you may do as you wish when the contest ends.

Hi there
I'm thinking of entering this contest, but I have just a question:
In the contest rules you say the subject of the manip can be any animal, but in the entries the subjects are all horses. Am I missing the memo? Am I allowed to use any animal, or must it be a horse?
xxAuroraStudios's avatar
You may use any animal or a person ;)
Most of my watchers are horse manipulators and the groups I notified about the contest were horse-related, which thats why it turned out like this =)
