G'day folks,

I am two days over due, but here it is. A contest ONLY for stock!

The theme is 'Inspiration'

And I can hear some of you already going... "What the??? That is a bit BROAD!"
Well there is a twist.

You need to find inspiration from another stock artist.
The idea of this is to push you outside of your comfort zone and create an stock image (or series) that you never thought you would create.

Which other stock artist do you watch and go "Wow!", I wish I could be more like them?

To be clear, this is not having you re-create their image/ series. It is about you taking inspiration from that series and putting your own spin on it

I've done it personally quite a number of times...
OTB_1 by jademacalla inspired -> Female Frost 1 by kirilee
Creeping Tears 037 by Elandria inspired -> Red 11 by kirilee
Daemon 24 by Tasastock inspired -> Dragal 7 by kirilee
Sailor Staff Weapon 77 by SenshiStock inspired -> SenshiStock Entry by kirilee
Lisa by faestock inspired -> Froud Fae Inspired 6 by kirilee
inspired -> Evil Clown 12 by kirilee

RULES
- You may enter up to 2 times, with 1 - 3 images for each entry.
- You must provide a link to the image/ series that provided the inspiration
- You must credit the stocker that provided the inspiration for the entry
- You must note the stocker that they inspired you for this series (and yes, I'm sure they would be flattered).
- All stock entered must be new
- Note me with your entry/ies and specifically tell me if you wish to be judged in the Advanced or Beginner level (however, if I deem that you are more advanced than you give yourself credit for, I reserve the right to change the level).
- All type of stock are accepted - model, object, nature etc.

Deadline is January 30th, 2013

Happy stocking - and if you need help... I may make a new journal entry with some stockers who do some WONDERFUL stuff.

I actually came up with something... But I took my inspiration from 2 different stockers with 2 different stocks and merged them into one.
Does it count?D:

Hey Kirilee,

I'm =LaylaSerenity, well that is my Art page. I have always wanted to get into stock work, and your contest has me inspired to do so! I'll be sending in some entries soon as it either warms up to or I find a place in my home to shoot the photos. If you don't mind me asking, what is the deference between Advanced and Beginner in your stock contest?
Reply
:iconkirilee:
kirilee Featured By Owner Dec 30, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
I am so glad to hear this news!
Make sure when choosing a place that there is a good amount of natural light but is not in direct sunlight. The quality of photo will be better.
The difference between Advanced and Beginner is the level of stock you enter (mainly to do with if you are just starting out - Like yourself - or you have been doing stock for a while (like *Tasastock or `faestock)
I hope that answers your question.

I'm a little bit confused about the entry portion though. So we can submit two entries, but each entry can have one to tree stock pictures with it?
Reply
:iconkirilee:
kirilee Featured By Owner Dec 28, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
That is correct. You can enter twice with with a single image or a small series
