EDIT- Deadline extended! You got one more week to paint that circus oliphant. Oh, and clay work is also accepted :)

I once again am watching Carnivale, one of my favorite shows. So you guessed it right: this week's assignment is "Circus".

It is a quite open theme: it may be all about carnies, the wild, wandering life or about bearded women riding oliphants, it may be a clown swallowing a sword. Or you could interpret the theme much more freely. What will you come up with?

Deadline is next Friday, December 13th, midnight EST.
:icongdodinet: get's to pick the next theme!




EDIT: prolonged deadline for a week as there is not a lot of activity at the moment... I also don't draw/paint atm, I'm totally absorbed in clay works and these can't be finished in a one or two weeks deadline ; )



Sorry, I totally forgot about the next theme! So it goes up today, leaving you with more time than usual.



"Monochromatic" is a very open prompt, and fitting for mostly any medium you can think of. I hope to see some entries :)


ENTRIES:

New deadline is Friday Nov 29,  midnight EST, or rather when I get up on Saturday.

More Journal Entries

Welcome!

You can click either the Group Info or About Us button above to see the details of what we're all about.

In short, we're a group that holds weekly mini-contests in the form of art class homework assignments. Every week is a new topic, and everyone is free to join in at their leisure.

Or main activity is our Weekly Assignments.
On the due date, the person who came up with the topic picks their favorite piece out of all the submissions. Whoever's work gets featured that week gets their work showcased by the group and also gets to come up with the next topic.

It goes on like that forever. Everyone is welcome to join, and all art styles (including written) are welcome. Just keep in mind we're primarily focused on digital and visual art. devious-deadlines.deviantart.c…

We also have Daily Studies (on hiatus), which is dedicated to helping one practice more by making quick practice pieces almost every day for a week. devious-deadlines.deviantart.c…

Our most recent activity is Scribble Cards , where you get a digital note card and use your imagination and style to overcome the limited drawing space. There is no time limit on this one. devious-deadlines.deviantart.c…

So welcome! I hope you enjoy your visit, and would be happy if you played the game every now and then.

Have fun.

(P.S. There's an FAQ on the About US page! :typerhappy:)

Just to be sure, I can participate in my own assignment, right? O.o

Sure you can participate in your own assignment. :) This is not a contest - not really, it's mainly a way to inspire people to get creative. The choosing of a "winner" is just a way to keep the ball rolling (in my view).

When getting picked yourself? You post a new journal in the group, describing the next challenge.

I submitted [link] to WIP. It's my first inked traditional in ages, and still needs to be colored. I just want to get some feedback on it. :D

I still see no comments in any blog posts connecting the image to a group activity. The image itself doesn't say, and it isn't obvious what the connection is.

Do not upload unrelated work to this group. It will be removed and repeatedly doing so will be considered as spamming our gallery.

Hrn. Okay. You should clarify it more then, in the blog.

Don't worry, this won't happen again.

I should add that if there's a connection, you need to mention it in the blog post for the weekly event you made the image for. I'll leave the image up for a little bit to give you a chance to fix it.

Is this a WIP related to the current weekly assignment or is it a personal endeavour? I ask because this group's gallery is specifically used for collecting the weekly assignments and sketchcards, not for unrelated art - no matter how intriguing.

Sorry for not understanding the rules. If it's pulled it's fine, because it is my fault. I would say it would be nice if the group clarified it more in the blog post.

They are in blog posts. [link]

The best thing is probably to add the group to your devWatch, and make sure the Journal option is checked.

Just to clarify for anyone else reading this, yes, feel free to submit non-graphic art like short stories or snapshots of a sculpture you made. In general, anyone can submit anything, as long as it follows the guidelines (such as style or content).

If say, you wanted to make a Scribble Card out of your poem, you could make the text a spiral within the 500x500 image space. Or, you could make nine cards that you put together like a puzzle to form the full poem.
