ART EXPLOSION WEEK 42: Theme NO THEME?/ Now 50 SBD in prizes!

in #art3 years ago


Here we are again folks, ART EXPLOSION, THIS IS WEEK 42! The theme this week is NO THEME! I have wanted to do this for awhile because I am very curious to see what kind of submissions we will get. Choose the style of art and subject that resonates with YOU the most and make the best piece of art you can, as simple as that :D

Once again we have a special sponsor and guest judge: @vachemorte and new sponsor @curie! The total prize pool this round is 50 SBD!

Please note that once again the duration to submit will be two weeks so take your time and make something great!

The Rules

  • Upvoting and Resteeming this post is appreciated :)
  • Make some art (one entry per person and please new art only)
  • Make a post of your own for your entry (add artexplosion in the tags)
  • In your post describe your medium/process a bit, and show a few process images
  • Please note that we are no longer accepting writing/poetry
  • Link it here in the comments obviously so I can find it.
  • All entries must be submitted before Saturday July 7th at 3PM EST.

We'll be choosing the winners based on whatever tickles and touches us the most!

This is not a requirement but it would be a nice gesture to view the other entries and upvote them if you like so we can support each other and pass this on to any artists or friends you think may be interested :)

I can't wait to see what you create!

See the winners of the previous week HERE


I can’t draw. Lol

You paid yourself 18 cents to be the first comment on an art contest saying I can't draw? Interesting strategy... I see your a film maker video is also accepted :D

I personally despise that you are voting yourself on top with this shit comment instead of voting for the art submitted to the contest.

Thanks for joining again!

These contests are just too much fun not to join.☺

My entry to the contest is a digital collage titled "Queen of Desolation"

Thank you for the entry!

I haven't done one of your wonderful contests in awhile, maybe I'll make a brand new Singularity piece for it, to keep the ole' fires burning. I feel like I've been falling behind in many of my favourite posters, so hope all is well and I see you two are still making amazing music.

This is the one to join, full freedom to make what you want! We are still chugging along busy as ever lol I hope to see an entry :)

Awesome thanks for joining in!

✨I hope you like it a lot, Dear Friends ✨

Wow. It's incredible.

Thanks u friend <3

Great thank you for joining!

Here is my submission for this super fun contest (and my first ever contest entry as a Steemian!).


Cool welcome to your first contest! Thanks for entering :D

I just remember about this contest today! So sorry that I couldn't resteem it >_<.

I've always wanted to enter your competition since the theme Nature but I was very busy that week and couldn't make it. Anyway, there are so many good submissions already, but I feel I still have to make an entry because this theme is just too cool to miss :).

Here is mine

Thanks for joining scrawly!

Very vibrant as usual, thanks!

Thanks! :) ❤

This kind of brings back traumas to having to write a final thesis for my ( film theory ) studies where I had to pick my own subject ( and there was no deadline ): I kept changing my thesis' subject and the whole process took me 2.5 years. Fortunately, there's a deadline here.

All kidding aside, I actually think this is pretty cool. Let's see if I can come up with some art for a change :>)

Hugs from Portugal,


Haha some people do better with no restrictions but it can be more overwhelming for sure! I would love to see an entry from you Vincent :D

Let's see what I can do :>)

I was almost hospitalized, yesterday afternoon, with a stomach infection.
Am doing way better now - and am on medication - but I'm not sure if I can come up with a piece of art in the next three days or so.

I am planning to look into this too though, it sounds pretty cool. So who knows, we might end up collaborating on there in the not-too-distant future ;>)

Oh no I hope you feel better soon, you made it on Steemit so I think you'll pull through ;)

Thank you! I'm doing ( way ) better already. Just couldn't make the art contest deadline. Can't force art ;>)

Greetings! I want to participate. I have already done all the steps , but the reestimate icon does not appear on the page :(

Thats fine its because its older than 7 days, it is not a necessary requirement :)

Still a full week, lol, it looks good so far I think you can finish it :D

Of course I didn't finish what I started.
This is today's creations. My son's lunch.

Maybe next time...

LOL very cute and creative though!

Thank you, looks sparkly!

You're welcome Julia, it is indeed sparkly😁

Hello @juliakponsford how are you? Thank you for these art contests that you perform in the community and that motivate artists like me to give a little bit of know what they are passionate about. Although it is somewhat late but still in time I want to share my entry to the contest which I could not do before because I had problems with my pc, without more to say this is my entry

Wow a mural, cool entry, thanks!

Per usual, as in the old days, I am cutting it close to the wire with my entry. But, honestly, @juliakponsford, I was entering more as a celebration of what you do here on steemit. This prompt of no theme allowed me to make a piece with the contest in mind and still work on my series :)

I hope you like it and again, thanks for all you do for the steemit community.

Here is my piece: july6art.jpg

And here is the post.

Yay you made it, looks very nice Donna :D

Hello!!!! This is my entry :D (Almost late xD, I'll update the post soon with even more info)

Just in the nick of time, thanks!

Yuppp! I somehow misread 7pm est xD Luckily I checked again haha

Hellow Julia! Sorry to be late! I could not resteem and upvote the post on time :/ Thanks, this is my entry.


Hi Kenny, you missed the deadline, seems a few people did (saturday 3 pm est) , it looks great though I will take a look at your post :)

Oh i do not know why i read that the deadline was today! My bad Julia!

Hi portilloart, it seems you missed the deadline as a few others did also but I will of course go check your post as I am a big fan of your art!

thank you very much @juliakponsford I will be very attentive to the next art explosion

😥😥😥 No theme would have been perfect but looks like I'm too late. 😣

Yes, so many were late this round, next time I guess :)

Oh no, I did not post anything yet. 😅😅😅 All I got are photos. 😥

Late, late, late but happy :)
This is what I’ve done with No Theme


Looks cool, maybe you can make it in on time next round :)

tadaaaaa :-DD
While forcing a friend to help me I finished my work yesterday evening (laaate...) and wrecked my brain to produce a readable text. You can find both here:
and my entry is a fiber art sculpture, which is not so easy to capture. And I couldnot stop myself to play with it.
Thank you for widening my horizon ...
