Welcome, welcome

It's all about the things living under the ash bark.

What kind of art can you submit here?
To see the rules, follow the following White Rabbit.


Pack your socks and Narnia maps, and don't forget about the handkerchief!

After listening to your comments, I decided to postpone my prepared theme and go along EccentricTeatime's idea, which was earlier widely endorsed by other GrimGloomTalers.

It's not about the adventure itself - it's about how it begins. A carefully planned journey with a backpack full of anything you could possibly need (and plenty of things you'd not need anyway)? Or did you just get into a crazy run with an armed tanuki escaping from a horde of legged fish? Or perhaps you're still sitting on the stairs before the porch and gather strength, as it is traditionally done in my region?

Your task is to depict or describe the beginning, whether it's the first step over the threshold or packing up the clothes, or planning everything over the map - or perhaps all at once.

We've got a special folder for the entries. It can be accessed here. If your submission gets accepted, I will edit this entry and your piece will be featured here, so everybody could see how awesome things you can do. There are allowed all the techniques you may find in our gallery, and remember, it must fit The Rules.

:bulletblack:Deadline: the 20th of June 2014.
:bulletblack:Limit of submissions: one piece per member.
:bulletblack:The entry must be prepared for the contest precisely.
:bulletblack:You must be a member to participate.

How to vote - first, second and third place - are choosen by you. Every entry have its own number, so voting looks like this: in a comment you write three (no more and no less) numbers and points - three points for your most favourite one, two points for your preferable second place and one point for the third. So it should look like this:

    10. 3 points
    21. 2 points
    4. 1 point

Remember - all of the submissions deserve your attention, which means also reading the literature ones. Voting will be closed after two weeks (the 4th of July). The deviation with the highest number of points is the winning one. After the votes are counted, I shall choose a deviation which gets the distinction (from all the submissions except the 3 winners).


Features by: Azalane, Angelles-LaVeau, NoOneWouldListen, akitku, STelari, GrimGloomTale.

:bulletblack:First Place
- a sketch from NoOneWouldListen
- a sketch from STelari
- 300 points from EccentricTeatime

:bulletblack:Second Place
- a sketch from STelari
- 200 points from EccentricTeatime

:bulletblack:Third Place
- a sketch from STelari
- 100 points from EccentricTeatime

- a sketch from STelari
- a watercolour sketch EccentricTeatime

Looking for prizes, think of it!

Good luck!

A German speaking group on facebook calling itself
'Germanische Götterwelt'… is ripping off art on their profile.
Until yesterday they used one of my pictures to promote their profile. More, they use a multitude of art related to Heathenry to illustrate their posts without crediting their sources - THEY EVEN DELIBERATELY HAVE CUT OFF OR REMOVED ANY SIGNING OR MARK CREDITING THE ARTIST! This may include other artists that are featured in this group, there is a lot of artwork there that I have first seen here on deviantART!
I have written a statement on their page, demanding they stop to use my art and remove the stolen (and altered) pictures. They no longer use my Odin picture for their site, but they erased my comment from their board.

Please check out my journal for more information and take action by reporting them and spreading the word!
