Welcome, welcome

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

:iconstelari:

I don't swim where I can't see the bottom.


This time we have a rather loose contest theme - as another Autumn approaches, and the rainy days with it, let's bring this water in. Whether it be salt water in an ocean or a massive wall of rain, your submission must have a huge amounts of water in it. Well, for a 2" tall fairy, a bowl of water might be a lot, if you think of it. But for a giant, ain't no little puddle going to work in this contest.

Obviously enough, since this group is called this and not that, and our mood is exactly what it is, you need to think about it, too.

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 what 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 25th of October 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 8th of November). 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).

1. A MermaidShe conjures quite a storm,
Sends up great waves to swarm the deck,
To drown the crew and wreck
Their ship and snap the neck of those
Not yet in their death throes.
As ev’ry sailor knows, a maid
Who dwells in ocean’s shade
Will lure them far from aid, from land,
And with bewitching hand,
She’ll toss them, sink them and destroy
The lives of man and boy,
So that she may employ their ship
As home, and she will strip
It bare, and then equip the thing
With ev’ry belonging
She likes; perhaps she’ll sing as she,
A maiden fair and free,
Hangs shells and all things sea, and weeds…
’Tis all a mermaid needs;
These are the very deeds that show
She owns the place, and so
All sea-dwellers will know that she,
This daughter of the sea,
Has claimed the ship to be her base,
Her private, wicked space,
Her stolen, murdered place of warm.
  2.Black Bubbles by LodeinArt   3. Leaves Upon the Sea
The leaves shall turn and dance as they fall upon the waves,
Drowning ever slowly as the tumult overwhelms them.
The hand that man once held shall soon be grasping for the air,
And the red and green and brown shall crown the place where he will fall.
Bubbles rise, gasping to the surface,
Pockets of dioxide forced out from the mouth
As the blood-wetted lips start losing their cohesion.
Blood, air, and water;
All have mingled in the depths.
The leaves rained down amidst the waves,
To find the blood-soaked haft.
Red and yellow and green and blue;
Death has come to all.

10.Water lily by Gawarin   11.Reaching by Checanty   12. Kaelpie    The moon was full and the water was black, gently slapping against the shore as she walked her lonely path home. It was darker than usual, winter was drawing close and the hem of her skirt was collecting moisture. She cast her gaze over the water, tracing the line of the opposite bank as something stirred briefly in the water; she watched it as the ripples appeared to draw in on her.
Her heart began to pound. As she moved it changed direction, angling towards her. She increased her pace, the heavy petticoats swinging, the stiff fabric making the increased speed difficult. She looked over again; it was close now, ten feet, maybe less. She tried to run, but was hindered by her garments. She looked back again; a creature could be seen, oily dark gelatinous skin almost breaking the water.
She ran into something, taller and more solid than she was. Landing heavily on the ground, she heard the water splashing and looked up where a pale horse stood as if waiting for her, ca
