Well, I suppose it's about time for our first competition! Lots of gallery items have been requested from artists around dA, but very few members in this group are actually active participants. So, to encourage activity, I've decided to host a fairly simple competition.

Make an artwork that follows the general theme of the group: it should focus on a fantasy warrior woman. She can be in battle or not. She can also have others with her in the artwork, though she must be the central focus of the piece. Her status as a warrior woman should be obvious. Take a look at the group gallery folders for examples of all the possibilities open to you.

Here's the caveat: the artwork can only be made from the stock images provided in the stock section of our group gallery. This means that your piece must have either used one of those stocks as a reference (3D, digital, or traditional art), or it must be in the work as part of a photomanipulation. The idea is not only to help draw attention to our wonderful stock providers but also to encourage group members to look at the stock section and perhaps to submit stocks of their own in the future.

:bulletred: **All submissions must follow the group rules listed on the front page and in our journal. Members only.**

:bulletred: **All submissions must have "FWW Stock Challenge" in the title.**

:bulletred: **All submissions must have a link in the description to the stock picture used.**

:bulletred: **THE DEADLINE IS AUGUST 1**

I have a question, I chose a photo to use as reference for doing a digital painting, but I wanna make some changes like change the outfit/hair a bit... Is that okay?

I have some questions, since I might submit something last-minute if I have time to make something. :)

The rules say that the submitted pieces can only use stock from this group's gallery... but if I make a photo-manipulation with one of the characters from the stock gallery, can I use outside stock for the background?

Also, I understand that the group is for historical-type fantasy only without any futuristic material allowed. So what do we do with the Lara Croft-themed stock?

Yes, you can use outside stock for the background.

For Lara Croft-style stock, you could use the pose as a reference or take out her more modern weaponry and clothes and replace them with something else.

Cool. Hopefully I'll have time to make something.

Also I've been wanting to start a discussion in the True-Amazons group blog, something about sexual objectification in art and how it usually only seems to work one way when it should go two ways. I haven't thought of a concise way to sum up my thoughts that would generate discussion. But I wanted to know if it was okay with you if I post a new blog when your contest is still in progress. Of course you are still able to update your contest blog and have that made visible to people, too.

Oh yeah, that's fine. Now that I have some people active in it, it's OK to bump it down. :D

So is literature not allowed, inspired by the stock images, under the vague-ish premise of traditional art? I'm sure it's "no" but I had to ask.

no problemo! I'll see if I can cook up something interesting :meow:
just wondering, but, have you considered expanding the stock folder?
I know theres quite a few stock artists who do a lot of fantasy and weapon work- and some who simply do weapon work- that would be really good for the stock section :D
Also theres a ton more from the Alanna series that would be useful too- different poses and angles and whatnot-

I know that can be tough, especailly with how many stock artists are here on DA ><

Hi There! I'm interested in joining in. I was just wondering, do i have to only choose one stock image, or can i chose multiple stock images, say, to combine different poses for multiple characters in drawing?

Thanks in advance :)

You can use multiple stocks, just be sure to link them all in your description. :)
