Challenge to cheer ThruCarolsEyes-Stock

Get Well, Mom! Art ChallengeSome of you may know that my mom is ThruCarolsEyes-Stock. Well I'd like to host a little challenge for you, and for her, as a get well present. She just had surgery today. It went really well and all everything is great, but she won't be coming home from the hospital for a few days. Her recovery is going to take a couple of weeks at least, so I thought it would be a great surprise for her if we held a little challenge on the side for her to see when she's feeling better. 
The Challenge
 Create an art piece in your favorite medium. It's open to all galleries, and everyone is welcome to join in. 
Here are a few things Mom likes:
- Happy little fat birds.
- Edwardian/Victorian/Pre-Raphaelite/Art Nouveau/Deco themes (she's not really into the dark gothic styles.)
- Vintage looks (i.e. the 50s, 40s, 30s, etc.) 
- Warm and rich color palettes (reds, blues, greens, golds, etc)
- Swirly florals and postcard type stuff.
- Landscapes and waterscapes

Runs until April 18th  :aww:

   Eyes Closed To... CHALLENGEGreetings Castle Folk...
I've been seeing a lot of cool imagery featuring a model with her/his eyes closed or mostly closed. It got me to thinking, about all the situations and things we close our eyes to-some good, many bad. Seems to me like a ripe theme to look into (pun intended. ;p) So here are the rules of the game:
:bulletred: The requirements for this challenge will be to show us art that includes at least one model with their eyes closed or ALMOST closed. The concept can be a design type of image OR a scenic one. The model(s) must be the focus in either design or scenic.
:bulletred: you MUST note what exactly the model's eyes are closed to, be it a loved one, a wound, a situation-YOU decide. Please don't neglect this aspect of the challenge.
:bulletred: Send us your best work, let us see your talent, folks. (Just as you HAVE been doing :)
:bulletred: Media is digital.
:bulletred: Challenge ends April 10th (at midnight PST) 2016

   The Nine Muses ChallengeGreetings Artists of the Castle..
I love delving into mythologies and find rich with concept ideas for creating. This month, we're going to illustrate one (or more-your choice) of the nine Muses.
:bulletred: The requirements for this challenge will be to show us art that includes at least one model and include images that show WHY she represents that particular Muse.  The idea can be a design type of image OR a scenic one. The model(s) should be the focus in either design or scenic.
:bulletred: these are the Muses below, and a link to a very informative contribution about the Muses from :iconartisticfairy:
Calliope (epic poetry), Clio (history), Euterpe (flutes and lyric poetry), Thalia (comedy and pastoral poetry), Melpomene (tragedy), Terpsichore (dance), Erato (love poetry), Polyhymnia (sacred poetry), Urania (astronomy)
:bulletred: You MUST include the name of your Muse and a mention of what area of life sh
   Over The Horizons Contest!NEWS
Hello everyone and welcome!
We Start Our Contest TODAY!
I know that the information below seems like a lot, but I only do this to be sure that ALL of you are doing the same thing to give you more chances to win in your skill level. I really think "open" contests are not fair; usually, only those with advance photomanipulation skills win. Not here! You ALL have the chance to win some great stuff!

:bulletred: BEFORE YOU GET STARTED ON YOUR ENTRY: Let Me Take This Time To Remind You Of Something VERY Important :bulletred:
There are more and more pre-cut out stock for us to use now; AND there are a many more stock accounts that have 3D Rendered stock.  
We at ManipulateThis are Traditional Photomanipulators who use photo stock, unless I say it's a 3D Rendered Challenge or if it's okay to Mix Media; that is, use Photo Stock with 3D Rendered stock.
You will find many good looking 3D Rendered stock that look like photos, so BE CAREFUL! ONLY Photo Sto
   Awareness of the Arts: Into The StarsWhat it is:
Take one Artist and one writer and have them compete together. The Artist draws, or photographs or manipulates their craft; The Writer, writes a poem or short story based off the artist work *please keep written works to 1000 words or less*. It works the other way too, you can create art from literature too! La la la la 
Of course we have a theme Into The Stars and your work needs to fit. We are a family here lets show the rest of the world what one form of social media can do. We can bring people from all walks of life with all talents together for one cause.
If you can find your own buddy awesome, if you need help finding a buddy we will pair up loners after asking two questions... Art or Writing? and What is your fav genre to work in? *just comment on this journal* If there are not enough in a particular catigory we will do our best to match everyone up!

When we talk about Fan Art, the question of copyright tends to come up.  There have been a lot of resources posted on the subject on DA over the years and sometimes they can be tricky to find.  So this is a comprehensive compilation on the topic posted by staff, who have had legal consultation.  I have left out older articles that are similar to the ones I included as the more recent ones would have the most accurate information.

Despite so many of the complaints some people have against it, DeviantART is a very good social network geared specifically towards artists and people who appreciate art.  DeviantART is, in fact, one of the very first sites of its kind, predating even such social networking giants as Facebook and Myspace.
It is a wonderful place to share your work, to look at the work other artists have created, to offer and receive advice on artwork, and many other functions.  You will find that there are lots of fellow Deviants out there who want the best for you and want to see you excel as an artist and as a member of the DeviantART community.  On the other hand, you will also find an alarming number of people who like to troll, flame, spam, and just generally cause trouble for fellow Deviants.  Every place has them, and there's no escaping it.
