1. In need of new moderators

    Hello everyone! waywardKing here. In case you haven’t noticed, I haven’t been doing a very good job here lately. Or doing my job at all. I feel really bad about that, but due to other commitments and a severe lack of creativity lately, guilt isn’t doing the trick of getting to me post a challenge every Monday. With heavy artist’s block and other factors, I’m just not able to prepare the challenges on a weekly basis.

    As such, I’m putting out the call for creative and motivated individuals who would like to contribute to this blog! 

    If you think you’re up to the task, I’ll be able to give you access and the .PSD template for the challenge images. It’s a blog that can see a lot of activity and has more than 4,000 followers, so please keep that in mind when deciding if the job is right for you.

    You can send an ask here, or you can e-mail me personally.

    And finally, I am sorry for the inactivity. I really wish I could keep up with this, it’s a great blog and a great community and I was very proud to contribute while I could.

  7. Weekly Art Challenge #87: (November 25th ~ December 2nd)

    Yourself in One Word: Make an Illustration for your word!

    Describing yourself can be hard! In fact, I think trying to sum up my entire person is easier with some limitations. If you had to describe yourself, it might take all week and a lot of introspection. If you had to describe yourself in one word, it would probably only take five minutes. How long to describe yourself in one illustration based on one word?

    Less than a week is the answer. Because that’s the challenge this week. Pick one word that describes you, and then make an illustration for that word. Key thing: no self portraits! Nice try. The word is about you, but the illustration is about the word!

    Some things to note:

    • All medias are accepted! 
    • No self portraits.
    • NO SELF PORTRAITS.
    • There are no limitations on the word you choose. Noun, adverb, verb, adjective, other word types I don’t know, whatever. Anything goes so long as it’s not your name or ‘myself’ or anything else that might make you think you can draw a self portrait because you cannot submit a self portrait.  
    • For this challenge, you may make up to two submissions, but they must be the same word!
    • Oh, and tell us the word!

    Challenges submitted are valid up to 11:59PM on MONDAY!

    [US Eastern Standard Time]

    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.

    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’! If you are interested in submitting a photoset, or have other special specifications for your submission that our page doesn’t allow, contact me and we can work out a solution. Have fun with this week’s challenge everyone!

  9. I was pretty miffed when I found out the album art for this single was a snowy mountain. Oh well! This is just a rough summary of the vibe I get from this beautiful, beautiful song.

  11. I hope I’m still in time to summit this. I was listening to I Don’t Think About You Anymore But, I Don’t Think About You Anyless  by Hungry Ghosts
I really don’t know why I think of injuries and pain when I listen to that song.
It’s pencil, charcoal, and oil pastels.

  19. The instrumental that I chose always made me think of sad dinosaurs. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2aId5_Ir3Cw
Turns out the title Mano de Mono has more to do with a monkey hand than it does with sad dinosaurs but it&#8217;s still an undeniably sad piece of music and great to listen to if you&#8217;re in a really good mood and feel like you need to dial it back a bit.

  27. I drew this for the song &#8220;Breath of Life&#8221; by Florence + The Machine. The music was really beautiful and powerful, so I thought &#8220;what could be more beautiful and bold than one of the folk mermaids?&#8221;. You know, the ones that used to eat the flesh of men? (Sorry that it isn&#8217;t in better quality. No scanner =[ )
