CONTEST MARCH 2017 - CLOSED:iconallartsupport:
Six years ago, on the 12th November 2010, Stephanos MamoruK1N founded this group.
Last October Stephanos gave me the points to upgrade us to Super Group, so we have much to celebrate!
Our festivities started with a Portraits Contest.
Now, let's have another contest!

Contest Announcement (12th Fev 2017)

Today starts our contest with 2 themes at your choice "Steampunk" and "Dreams".
What do we want to see?
Good art, amazing pieces, all kind of traditional/digital art, photography or photomanipulation.
These themes have been chosen and voted by you on this poll
The themes are open to your imagination, so anything is possible.
Anyway, pay attention to the rules and read them carefully, so your work can be accepted.

Rules to enter the Contests "Steampunk" and "Dreams"
Bullet; Red

My theme choice: "Dreams"


Even if you're not familiar with chakra or purple color symbolism, I expect you can already guess the dreamy gesture of the cat looking up to the night sky. Here I'm depicting the deep side of a seemingly innocent & ordinary cat (also you may interpret it as a symbol of an innocent/child-like human character), apparently her imagination reaches out, widely branching out beyond the simplicity of her physical body - just a usual orange tabby from the outside..

Mixed media on paper.

I need to work more on the likeness of the reference but I'm satisfied enough for my standard. :boogie:

I like the idea of the purple branches--stands out good against the cat.  Nice style to it.

oh, as soon as I saw this I recognised the reference photo! I love that person's gallery, they have so many lovely pictures to reference from. :D I love the colours you used in this, especially the bright orange for his coat, and how it contrasts with the white and the background. The shadow on his chin also looks really good with the fluffy white highlights in it.

Yes indeed Onistocke's photos are one of the best. The coloring idea came up to me spontaneously and I'm so glad it turned out great (and quite surprisingly I managed to execute the idea/painting well), thanks! :D
