So here it is - another contest that I just missed to participate in, but can't afford not to feature:
:icongrimgloomtale:'s The Muse! With a reputation for an imaginative and versatile art community, this group's competitions showcase a palette of very different art styles of high quality appeal. This one is no exception.

Here is the Muse contest with all its entries - because I think they are all worthy to be recognized

The Muse - contest #10This contest has ended. The winners announement can be found here.
Hard-working or lazy, reliable or capricious?
A new contest for the new year: have you ever thought of portraying your creative vein as an actual being? Would it be a handsome woman or a hard to tame bird? Or a sloth (I hope a lively one, at least)? Does it walk around with you or stays and waits in some certain places? Or catches up with you all of a sudden no matter the location?
The task is to describe or depict that part of your mind responsible for all the brilliant ideas standing behind your creations. Or would it be a self-portrait of some kind?
:bulletblack:Deadline: the 7th of March 2014 the 9th of March, 3:00 pm GMT
: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.

Enacting on the MuseI blink to gaze at the austere dancers on the ballroom floor, and indeed, there are many elegant dancers, spinning as colorful flowers would, when brushed by the wind. There is a veritable multitude of marigolds and buttercups, several daisies, a few brilliant sunflowers in red and orange hues, and burgundy and black roses sashaying across the checkered floor. The black winds in pressed suits twist amongst them, and all the patterns ripple out, then in, as the winds step in time to the music, and all the flowers twirl into all the places the winds empty.
Where do so many flowers come from? To fill the gaping field of the ballroom so well? Why does that woman frown, oh, and picture such a woman, with sun-kissed hair and green silk waltzing down the center aisle. And everyone (everyone) watches, and the naked joy of being that central figure among other regal flowers and restless winds. I could imagine the majesty, and feel the violin song skim across my fingers, intimately b
  DefinitionSpider webs still cling to my dreams;
I wonder how I missed the clues.
Simple beauty still exists;
I always see it in their smiles.
Between them is a crazy perfection;
I am content amid the chaos.
Of Not AlonenessA quiet flutter
of falling snow,
perhaps a thousand little thuds,
little impacts on the ground –
also of a thousand hearts,
beating in time together.
Even though in this
there is no hand for mine to hold,
I am not so alone.
There are a billion hearts beating
out there in the world, somewhere past
all the echoes of falling snow.

Congratulations again!

The next contest will be there for sure...
I wish you all a wonderful and creative time. Be blessed!

I absolutely love how well you do faces. Your ability to convey emotions/thoughts/attitude/personality with faces and body language is impressive.
