All art works in all mediums embracing the themes of science fiction, fantasy, horror, and the surreal are eligible for this show. Fantastic Art can be subtle or obvious, traditional or off-the-wall, painted, sculpted, or photographed: there is no unacceptable way to create art and there are no set rules that say one piece qualifies while another doesn't. Imagination and skill are what matters.
The challenge topic is to start a piece to submit to Spectrum 14. The deadline for entries is January 26, 2007. We'll be having the in-office critique for our WIP December 22 (the friday before Christmas break) - but it would be nice if y'all posted the WIP to the blog as well.

Here's my mythological creature. I was trying to think of ideas for a Christmas card, but ended up just doing some little elf doodles instead. I think I may do another one before this topic is over.
Nothing super fancy or experimental. I just scanned in the sketch and then cleaned it up in photoshop. I mostly used the default soft round brushes, and that blendy finger thing. Oh! And I put some subtle textures over the top when I was finished.

Here's the first topic for the Official Imagine Learning Art Challenge: Mythical Creatures (thanks Alisa). The idea is for this to inspire us to use training time to better learn software or experiment with technique. It will also be a good place to get feedback from each other about what works and what doesn't.
The Mythical Creatures topic will run through Monday December 11. A new topic will be given on Mondays that are not the start of a new Age.
Send me (maryn) any ideas for future topics.
Let the posting begin!
