Contest Info


It's that time again. :meow: 

For this contest, you are being offered a "stock bank" to select your stocks from. :la: There is no particular theme; just wing it!

Bullet; Red The majority (but not 100%!) of your manipulation must contain stocks from the given choices. You may find some textures or other little odds and ends to use. Also, you do not need to use a piece from each category listed below (but you can use more than one from the same category if you'd like). All stock/textures you are using outside of the bank must be legit.
Bullet; Purple Make sure you read each stock artists' rules! This is a must. Also, always give proper credit and notify of usage. Please remember to do this, or the entry will not be accepted.
:bulletpink: There will be 3 different categories: beginner, intermediate, and advanced (when submitting your entry or entries via note, please state which category you fall under).
Bullet; Yellow There is a limit of two entries per deviant (but you may only win once!).
:bulletblue: The artwork must be new (created November 10th or later).
:bulletgreen: The idea is to "break out of the box," to leave your comfort zone. Try a new style/genre! Your entry will be judged heavily on originality.
:bulletorange: Please keep digital painting to a minimum. Small details are fine.


:star: Run time: November 10th - January 10th


:trophy: Prizes:

:note: If you wish to offer a prize, please send a note. Any and all generosity is appreciated. :heart:

I'm pretty sure they were deleted. I tried pasting the thumbcodes elsewhere, but nothing will show up. I also tried editing the journal, but nothing changed.

Is there any way of getting the "da thumb code and numbers" that seem to be showing up in place of some of the stock images to show the images instead? - or to take that code and make it into links? I'm intrigued by the contest, but would like to see the full range of stocks I can choose from.

I tried fixing them, but they won't change. Sadly, the images were probably deleted.

Hi, 
in deviantART 'notes' essentially mean private messages. So in order to submit your entry, you'll have to go to Emerald-Depth's page here emerald-depths.deviantart.com/ and on the top right area of the page click on the button 'Send a note'. 
In that private message just attach your photo and state your category.
:) Hope that helps.

Hey thanks for the reply!! The problem I seem to be having is that I cant find any means to attach it with. It only gives me an option to send an emotion. Is this because im not a premium member?

I am so sorry for the late response (haven't had much internet access). But yes, the idea is to use the stock images provided in this journal. It offers a bit of a challenge to be restricted to certain images. I hope that helped. :hug:

It's a difficult judgement to make, but I suppose it would be the level you feel most comfortable in.

There is a better explanation for the different levels in this journal: manipulatethis.deviantart.com/… (located about half-way down the page).

I hope that helps. :)

It's easiest to save it as a PNG (file-->save for web, then select the type of file when a new window pops up). PSD's are a pain to upload.
