Winner of the Creative Challenge #1 - Conjoined Pumpkins 

It was very difficult to narrow down the great entries and choose a favorite, but I forced myself to anyway. The winner of the first Creative Challenge is Rachgraceh with Pumpkin Fairies!

Pumpkin Fairies by Rachgraceh


The Watcher's Favorite and the Top Five have been determined by the poll and the results are:

Watcher's Favorite: The Terrible Twosome by Nejija

Top Five (in order): Catgirl by dreamswomanConjoined by HikariToriPumpkin by xLockyAfter Midnight by abelrod666Sometimes I dream... by ASR-KKG

Creative Challenge # 2

I have chosen one of my favorite night time cloud/sky stocks for the second challenge. Seeing as how those of us in the Northern hemisphere are experiencing Autumn I chose one of our Harvest Moon stocks!

I have used this shot in two of my own artworks that you may see here for inspiration, but remember that you may interpret the stock anyway you wish! 

Melancholia by ADamselinDesign Paranormal Book Cover - AVAILABLE by ADamselinDesign

Required Stock

Harvest Moon 6 by DamselStock


: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. 


:bulletgreen: Challenge runs from November, 2014 thru November 30, 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!


: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.
