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 April 1, 2015 thru April 30, 2015 
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(s) will receive 250 dA points. The  top 10 favorites after those two will receive 100 dA points. 
:bulletgreen: The Watcher's favorite(s) and top 10 will be determined via the poll system, perhaps broken into two polls in case of many entries. 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: Each winner, My Choice & the two Watcher's Choices will receive a ribbon that they may choose to include within their Artist Description should they choose.
:bulletgreen: 50 dA points to my choice from EveLivesey 
:bulletgreen: Exclusive stock for the winners from EveLivesey

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.

Winners from the Creative Challenge # 4 - The Astronaut


Hello guys! I am sooo very sorry that I am just now posting the winners for Creative Challenge # 4 - The Astronaut. For the last 3 weeks I have been suffering a very bad case of the flu. My temperature actually spiked to 104.6 F for over 4 days. I really thought I was going to have to be admitted to the hospital. Needless to say, I was really just to weak to sit at my computer long enough to go through the entries and try to determine a winner.

I sincerely believe the entries for this challenge are some of the best artwork I have seen made from our stock. You guys are really amazing space artists! That said, this was also the most difficult to judge as every single entry was just absolutely incredible!

The winner of the Creative Challenge # 4 - The Astronaut is First Flight by RogueMudblood


Congratulations! Both SinisterSeth and I absolutely adored your story!

If you would like, you may display the following ribbon within your Artist Description: 

DamselStock's Choice by DamselStock

The Watcher's Choice will be determined via poll.


Creative Challenge # 5 - German/Bavarian Boy


SinisterSeth has chosen this month's required stock for you all as he says this series was one of his favorites and he is hoping to see some beautiful artwork from his photo.  He really loves to model for you guys and absolutely loves seeing what you guys come up with and how each artist sees something different in one particular shot. We do have more stock coming soon for you guys... one shoot is a pirate/cabin boy shoot and one is a Lord of the Rings style elven ranger, as in maybe a young Legolas. There are a couple of others in the works, as well, but we are still working on the costumes.

As always, you may interpret the theme/photo in any way you wish. Use your imaginations!  Remember that February is a shorter month so there are only 28 days for this month's challenge. I am hoping we'll have a good number of entries this month, though, as Seth is really excited to see is photo being used.

Winners of the Creative Challenge # 3 - Shepherd Boy


Each challenge is getting harder and harder to choose a winner. I decided to wait until Seth's mother brought him home from his visit with her so he could help me judge since it was his photo. Seth liked one entry for the winner and I liked a different entry. Honestly, we both liked every single entry for different reasons, so choosing one was not an easy task. Since we both wanted a different entry for the winner, this challenge will have two winners for our choices. So, without further adieu, the winners for "our choices" are:
