STOCK: cassy-blue.deviantart.com/favo…

I've decided to have a contest in celebration of hitting 10K page views. Well ok, I'm at 9116 and the wait is killing me. So it's close enough, eh? I want to get this contest started. There are two categories to the contest, art creation and stock creation!

Art Creation: Fantasy and Science Fiction

Artists, your task is to create a fantasy or a science fiction themed piece. But there's a catch, you have to use at least one of my stock images in your work. I have 500 some stock images to pick from (animals, landscapes, people, and more!) and I'll be uploading more during the duration of the contest. And when I say use, I don't mean you have to do a photo manipulation. You can use them as a reference for painting or drawing. I do it all the time. You have to follow my Terms of Use (link) of course.

There will be 1st, 2nd, 3rd places

Stock Creation: Fantasy and Science Fiction

Stockers let's make some stock related to the genres of Fantasy and Science Fiction. Artists, dip your toe into stock. I promise it's fun! If you don't have a super cool costume and want to try out the stock category, it's no problem really. I was at a Halloween party and someone went as the old hag from Snow White, except as a modern version that wore a grey sweater and leggings with a Tupperware container of apples. She just pulled the stuff out of her closet. Know some awesome spell castor poses? You could submit pose stock as your entry.  You may submit premium stock/exclusive stock.

There will be 1st, 2nd, and 3rd places.

Rules:

1.  Yes, you can enter both categories!
Only one entry per category is allowed.
 
2. You have to use at least one of my stock images in your art
entry and follow my TOU.

3. All stock resources must be valid and credited.

4. All entries have to be fantasy and/or science fiction themed.

5. Absolutely no nsfw entries allowed.

6. You will have to submit your entry by comment on this journal
 or by note to Cassy-Blue. In the artist's comments
please include a link to the contest journal. thanks!

Ok. To enter in your art work you need to use one of my stock images: (cassy-blue.deviantart.com/gall… o rcassy-blue.deviantart.com/gall…  in your entry.  All stock images must be credited, a link to the images used put in the artist comments will work. Stock images must be from deviantART (under stock category), depositphoto, photofolio, or other stock photo website. They cannot be from google, tumblr, weheartit.com, or other non stock websites. Entries cannot contain porn, erotica, extreme gore, or other inappropriate material.

Does this help?

Excellent!! Well, since i'm a very bad digital artist, photo manipulation is certainly out of question =P

For the stock reference, am i able to use it just for reference drawing and add other things in the background? for example, the pose academia stock 16, can i draw a character based on the pose and add it into a scene (eg: bard reciting poet in court) and maybe change the book with a different item (eg scroll) or add another item on the right hand?

Also...can the scene be depicting something like a fantasy battle? or does it have to be peaceful one?

I hope you dont mind me asking a lot of questions, I can't wait to get started :D

Cassy-Blue Featured By Owner Mar 23, 2014   General Artist
It's ok about the questions. You can use the stock as a drawing reference. You only have to use one of my image at the minimum for the contest as a reference and you can use as many as you want. So if you use a model stock for a pose reference, you can add whatever background you want to it. You don't have to draw exactly what the image is, so yeah you can change the book to a scroll, skull, etc. and draw a character off of the pose :)

As long as it's not too gory you can have a battle. Tbh I've seen your battle scenes and it should be ok if you want to do a battle.
