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:

Your contest has been featured in this journal. 
annewipf Featured By Owner Jan 6, 2014
I'll try to do something. Alas, I waited too much: 4 models has been removed. :(
Emerald-Depths Featured By Owner Jan 7, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
That's a recent occurrence. I'm not too sure why it happened. :/
annewipf Featured By Owner Jan 7, 2014
If they were not deleted, could you eventually give the links to the pages? Thank you.
Emerald-Depths Featured By Owner Jan 7, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
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.
