1. Weekly Art Challenge #103 (September 14th~September 20th)

    Good morning/afternoon/evening everyone!:)

    This week we be playing with facial expressions! Facial expressions can definitley be tricky but they are vital in identifying a characters range of emotions.

    I want everyone to make a page full of facial expressions, It can either be a consistent character or a bunch of random characters- all that matters is that theres a wide variety of facial expressions:)  You may do this scattered all over one page or have an organized chart. 

    Some sidenotes:

    -Like previously stated, you may approach this however you like, however all I ask is that you include at **least 10 different expressions.**

    -These do not have to be ‘finished pieces’, but please clean up your sketches!

    -You can do either a page full of random expressions or be organized and have a chart- its up to you

    -Usually I am a bit iffy about allowing fanart- but I would like to keep this challenge simple, so I am allowing fanart this week.

    [The deadline for this challenge will be Saturday September 20th at 11:59PM EST]

    For more information about the group and it’s submissions, please read the FAQ! If you have a question or concern that you do not see mentioned there, please don’t hesitate to ask me.

    Make sure to submit your piece using the submission page, and tag it for the appropriate challenge! If you don’t complete in time for the deadline, still post it to your Tumblr and tag it as ‘weekly art challenges’ & ‘wac challenges’! Have fun everyone!:)

  3. man!  cutting it close.
when i started thinking about historically relevant paintings, i thought of francesco zuccarelli. i have a weird obsession with satyrs and so his art painting bacchanal is an obvious choice for me to reproduce.

  5. Portrait Of Walborg Jakobsson (c.1900) - Elin Kleopatra Danielson-Gambogi - (Finnish, 1861 - 1919)
I discovered this artist a little while ago. This painting in particular is one of my favorites by her. I wanted to show the feeling of daydreaming. Putting reality and work behind for a moment and just gazing into the distance.

    I am currently working on my first entry for WAC, it "The birth of Venus". My question regards the PG-13 nudity of Venus, is that an issue for WAC/Tumbler?

    No, but when submitting be sure to mark the ‘nsfw’ tag if it’s not appropriate for work environment or things of that sort:)

    "Historical" art is a really broad category. Can we narrow that down a little? Different pieces have different perceived "historical-ness" for lack of better word. Nighthawks came out the year after the first issue of Captain America, but they don't really teach you about Jack Kirby in school. Both are arguably "modern", but both have a historied past.

    By historical I mean a classic painting you would perhaps see in an art history class. Essentially that narrows it down to the early Renaissance to about the early Post Modernism movements- so about the 1400’s~1970’s. This is still a really broad category but by ‘historical’ I mean a painting you would see in an art history class basically:)

    Weekly Art Challenge #102 (September 7th~September 13th)

    Good morning everyone!

    This week we will be dabbling in some art history! More specifically we will be recreating a historical painting. Pick any *historical* painting and re-create/re-draw/re-imagine it!:) Pretty simple challenge but also could be very interesting!

    Some things to note:

    -Must pick a historical painting. So essentially pick a painting from any point in art history- whether it be an early Renissance piece or a Cubism piece. **Try to stay more in the historical area rather than the more recent eras of art** 

    -By ‘historical’ I mean a painting you would see in an art history class basically:)

    -Tell us which original painting you used!

    -By re-create, I simply mean re-do the painting to your liking- tell a story! Do not simply submit the same exact paintings with no changes made.

    -Dont know where to start? Well google is your friend! Some artists who might spark your interest would be Rubens, Cezanne, Degas, Vermeer, Rembrandt..etc! Do some research on movements in art such as Post Impressionism, Rococo, Baroque, Realism, Art Nouveau, etc! The world of art history is a big world, so do some research!:)

    -Please be mindful of your submissions and appropriateness!

    [The deadline for this challenge will be September 13th at 11:59PM EST]

    For more information about the group and it’s submissions, please read the FAQ! If you have a question or concern that you do not see mentioned there, please don’t hesitate to ask me.

    Make sure to submit your piece using the submission page, and tag it for the appropriate challenge! If you don’t complete in time for the deadline, still post it to your Tumblr and tag it as ‘weekly art challenges’ & ‘wac challenges’! Have a wonderful week everyone!:)

    Is there a way you could maybe tell people not to put rants and offensive stuff in their submission descriptions? I like seein the submissions to these challenges, but sometimes the things people say in the descriptions are out of place or go too far. Thanks for your time.

    Yes, please be mindful of what you guys are putting in your submission descriptions.

    Will keep a closer eye out on this, anon:)

  19. Lilith doesn’t get mentioned a lot in The Bible for some reason. She was Adam’s first wife. These days she goes around seducing men and eating the resulting babies which is really gross. Equally as gross is Adam’s reason for marrying her. Apparently he had “grown tired of laying with animals” so decided to take her as his wife. Did I mention she was his twin, fashioned from the same clay as him and they were originally connected at the spine? Obviously I didn’t. Re-read what I just wrote if you don’t believe me.
Anyway, one time she knocked him back and he complained to Old Testament God about it. Old Testament God, who was fine with rape, incest and bestiality, was outraged and sent his angels Charmander, Squirtle and Bulbasaur down to sort things out. She wasn’t happy about it and they expelled her from Eden and turned her into a demon or something. It messed her up a bit. Now she seduces men and eats babies.

  27. (Shoot, can’t figure out how to submit this through my art tumblr, so here's the link. Also, here's my DeviantART page!)
I decided to draw the mythological Medb (or Maeve), Queen of Connacht, as she might’ve looked on the battlefield. She’s not too timid to do her own dirty work (to put it mildly), but she also uses her feminine wiles to lure men, often inadvertently, to their deaths. She features in the Táin, the Irish epic in which, in an effort to prove to her fourth husband that she brought more to the marriage than he did, she plunges the realm into war.
Medb’s body count and her life in general are pretty impressive, so I’d recommend checking out the Wikipedia page for all the gory details.

    Femme Fatale is a specific archetype that refers to a women who is dangerous because she is sexual, not any woman who is sexy, dangerous, or both. Femme Fatales don't explore or celebrate their sexuality, but use it to ensnare, trick, or destroy men. How is the idea of women using sex to destroy men, using their sexuality as a weapon to hurt men feminist? Suggested watching Evil Demon Seductress from feministfrequency.

    Hello:)

    I believe they explore their sexuality- such exmaple would be Aphrodite who is commonly depicted as a femme fatale. They may be dangerous and out to do damage or get any victim- whether it be male or not. At the end of the day, she is a powerful feminist figure in literature and history. Powerful, deadly and beautiful does not equal sexist. It is all about how the artist depicts her. 

    The bottom line is that if you believe that these character traits automatically equals a sexist figure then by all means ignore this challenge:) I create challenges to challenge our artist thinking and provide inspiration for everyone every week. ***This is simply a challenge celebrating powerful female figures in our history and culture.*** This is all I will say on the matter, but if you wish to come off anon and discuss it with me, then I fully welcome that:)
