Hey there The-Average-Alex here.
So after the recent closure of the logo contest we, after looking at the poll we posted, decided that we needed to host a new contest.
So here is the Atropa Belladonna contest!



The Theme
Atropa Belladona is the binomial name for deadly nightshade.

The theme for this contest is Flora (plants). Flowers, trees, fungi, grass... They all make up so much of this planet we live on, each type of plant has its own ways of growing, its own unique defence mechanisms and its own symbiotic relationship. Some are giant, some are small, some are edible whilst others are completely poisonous, we rely on them every day of our lives.

We want you to create a�piece�of artwork which incorporates plants in any way shape of form. They should be the main focus or feature, or play a large part in the piece.

O_O okay I want to enter but I'm not sure if I have to first join the group or not :iconimdeadplz: (actually I really want to join the group, but I can't find the "join group" button DX)

and If I take this traditional sketch>[link]
and colored over it in Photoshop, would that be acceptable?

The-Average-Alex Featured By Owner Nov 26, 2012   Digital Artist
You will need to join the group before you can submit to it.
the join group button will be on the left hand side of the page (i think)

and yeah colouring it in photoshop will be fine, just make sure you make the category digital art when you submit.

can digital mixed media contain traditional line work, or does it need to be PURELY digital?
Reply
:iconthe-average-alex:
The-Average-Alex Featured By Owner Nov 25, 2012   Digital Artist
its can contain traditional elements as long as the majority of the work is digital it's fine.

Wait. Is that then a no for fungi?

:iconthe-average-alex:
The-Average-Alex Featured By Owner Nov 14, 2012   Digital Artist
Sorry i was generalising.
I know Fungi are not exactly part of the plant kingdom (the fungal kingdom is separate) but for the most part we just group them along with plants and general Flora.

The date/timeis AEST, but don't worry i usually leave the contest open an extra day to make it fair for everyone due to time/date differences.
