12 times the illustrious yet decidedly spooky group
has called out for an art contest - this time daring the contributors to immerse themselves in water... artistically. Whoever is not yet familiar with the group profile should definitely check them out. The group folders showcase artwork of consistently high quality depictions of anything gloomy, ghastly, and refreshingly tasteful macabre! While you can see all the entries here
So much water - contest #12This contest has ended. The winners announcement can be found here.
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.
Deadline: the 25th of October 2014.
Limit of submissions: one piece per member.
The entry must be prepared for the contest precisely.
You must be a member to participate.

I give you a feature of the winners alone, presented with their winning piece and picks from their galleries. While choosing is always difficult, you won't regret taking a second look into the artists' galleries!
Lena from Russia does traditional illustrative art with a perfection it's hard to believe she isn't a professional! She also does love trees, what can you ask for more? She is featured here for the first time.
from Poland was winner of the last contest and now made a great second! She works traditional media and impresses with a subtle use of watercolour and interesting themes, the toughtful and contemplating mood reflecting her main profession.
Jana from Germany was my personal favourite in the contest. Regarding the sombre mood and elegance of her work, I wouldn't be surprised by her making No. 1 on one of the next competitions...
from the UK made her appearance here for the first time, if I am correct... I find it hard not to instantly fall in love with her imagination and unobtrusive, well-balanced style. I again predict that she won't be featured here the last time...
Congratulations to all! To write features like this is pure bliss, picking favourites from these galleries has been a privilege. Also, many thanks again to
for organizing these wonderful contests.
May you all have a good and inspired time!
