PLEASE NOTE:

All Submissions must be listed in the Resources & Stock Category of dA.

ALL IMAGES APPEARING ON THIS GROUP MUST MEET THE FOLLOWING GUIDELINES TO BE SELECTED:

:bulletred: We are specifically looking for beautifully photographed and constructed dynamic poses (mainly full body, either nude, semi nude or clothed appropriately for the pose).

:bulletred: A well lit white or at least plainish background is a bonus, although we know this is not always possible depending on the photographer's situation.

:bulletred: We have numerous folder titles to choose from and poses must be submitted to the appropriate title please.

:bulletred: Poses MUST be of a kind which will be useful to artists who are drawing or painting from scratch, therefore dynamic, interesting and clear.

:bulletred: All photos MUST be categorized as some kind of STOCK IMAGE - any other listing type will be declined.

We will not be accepting the following:

:bulletorange: Poorly lit, badly focused, or 'far away' type pics, as well as overly confusing backgrounds (like foliage), and pics which are not specifically set up to be a pose shot. The aim is to have a clear pose for an artist to replicate, thus it needs to be as large and clear as possible.

:bulletorange: 'Shag-on-a-rock' type poses (meaning the pose is boring, or lumpish, or too similar to a normal snap shot) - Please keep your poses interesting and dynamic. Standard standing, sitting and lying down poses are fine however they still need to look interesting. Standing in an interesting way and standing like a 'fish-wife' is not the same thing.


We will keep a strict standard of professionalism and aesthetics so the gallery will be of a high standard and useful to artists searching for great poses.

These rules may change at any time without prior notice

Hello my lovelies! 


If you saw my latest poll you know that I was considering beginning a monthly challenge where I would randomly choose an image from my gallery and give you guys one month to create something absolutely wonderful with it. The results of the poll were positive so I have decided to start the first challenge on October 1st! And what a better month than to choose one of the many pumpkins in my gallery for a Harvest/Halloween/Samhain/Hop-tu-Naa themed challenge. Pumpkin  

Seth has chosen the conjoined pumpkins for you guys to whet your appetites with; he says it looks like a big butt... gotta love kids!

Required Stock


Conjoined Pumpkins 4 by DamselStock

Rules


:bulletgreen: You must use the required image listed above in your artwork. It must be used so that I may easily distinguish it from the other elements in your artwork. (Obviously this does not apply to Literature but you must describe or mention it so that I know you are referring to my stock.)
:bulletgreen: You can use the free download of the required image, you are not required to purchase the Premium Content version. That is only if you wish to make a book cover and sell it, or the like. 
:bulletgreen: You must state that your piece is for this challenge and include a URL/Thumb code of this journal in your Artist Comments.
:bulletgreen: You may use other stock from my account, or other deviants accounts as long as you follow any Rules or TOU posted. You may NOT use images found through Google Images or any other non-legitimate sources. If you question whether your source is legitimate or not you may ask me via note.
:bulletgreen: You may use premade backgrounds but please note that I prefer you to challenge yourself and will always go with the artist who made their own background in the event that I am tied on who should win.
:bulletgreen: I allow horror/macabre art so feel free to get bloody, however, absolutely no sexual themes will be allowed as some of these challenges will more than likely include my nephew's images.
:bulletgreen: The challenge will run for exactly ONE MONTH and a new challenge will begin immediately on the 1st of the next month so there will be absolutely no extensions. 
:bulletgreen: Any medium will be accepted, YES EVEN LITERATURE! You are more than welcome to enter a poem or short story if the stock inspires you. 
:bulletgreen: You may enter as many times as you wish, but you can only win one prize (either my choice or Watcher's choice.)
:bulletgreen: To enter post the URL or thumb code to your artwork/deviation to this journal. 

Deadline


:bulletgreen: Challenge runs from October 1, 2014 thru October 31, 2014
Due to nature of "monthly challenges" there will be no extensions. There will always be the next challenge if you cannot make this one!

Prizes


:bulletgreen: My favorite will receive 500 dA points and the Watcher's favorite will receive 250 dA points. The  top 5 favorites after those two will receive 100 dA points.
:bulletgreen: The Watcher's favorite and top 5 will be determined via the poll system. I expect you guys to be fair and honest. NO ASKING FOR VOTES! If I find out you have asked for votes then you will be disqualified from this challenge. If you do it a second time you will no longer be allowed to enter the monthly challenges. The winners will receive points which cost me money. I will not pay for cheating. You may vote for yourself but if you have multiple accounts please only vote with the account your art is posted on. I know I cannot stop you from cheating but I am trusting you guys to abide by the Honor Code.
:bulletgreen: I will add more prizes if we end up with more entries than 15 entries.

If you wish to support the monthly challenges in terms of prizes please donate any points you are able or willing  to my Donation Pool on my profile page or by clicking here. I have a feeling this will become more expensive as the challenges grow. I do not want to have to quit the challenges due to not being able to afford giving out prizes.
