  • Please note that we are no longer accepting writing/poetry

Thats the spirit @eaglespirit!!!



We are destroying this persons comment section, but I like it!

Hi there! Seems I'm early this time :) Here is my entry just finished a few hours ago:

OOooooo! This is an intense one @elisea. I like it!

You're the first entry this round :D Thank you!

Synchronicity :) Haven't been around for while.

Hi, I know it's too late for this, but reviewing videos on YouTube the other day I accidentally came across an image, and it turns out that I remembered this week's winner @betzaelcorvo, realizing that the winner made a copy of this image . I think you should pay more attention to this, because you're supposed to be creative, and talent and creativity are rewarded, and one of the rules is that it's your own art and not a vile copy.
Very bad @betzaelcorvo.

Thank you for this, I have made some decisions and a post hoping to address this issue :)

Resteemed by @resteembot! Good Luck!
The resteem was paid by @friendly-fenix
Check @resteembot's introduction post or the other great posts I already resteemed.

Thanks @friendly-fenix for promoting the contest!

Ahaha :) great, realy funny.

I love how you're always providing opportunity for expansion @juiliakponsford. I agree--great theme!

Hello betzaelcorvo, I am unhappy to have to tell you that I had to remove you from the last group of winners due to the fact that your piece seemed to be a study based on this art and we only want to award original works:
Please see this post for my thoughts:

Hello friend @juliakponford, today I offer my apologies for the mistake I made when using a digital illustration reference and recreate it with my drawing style, I did not do it with bad intentions, for some time I have seen in the contest "artexplosion" based presentations in images extracted from the web, as for example in the theme of mythology, many artists recreated characters using images taken from the network as a reference, it is well that the rules of the contest are clarified with this incident, the art in the future must be original and completely genuine, today happened to me, but it could happen to anyone, I assume my responsibility and my desire is to vindicate myself before all, I consider myself a draftsman with a lot of responsibility and I have worked hard in my works to contribute and share my technique and step by step with everyone here, today my mistake many here will be aware of what is accepted in the guidelines of the contest, the difficult thing is not to fall as hard is get up and take our mistakes and learn to overcome and move forward, I apologize to all the artists who live in "artexplosion" wishing them many successes, art is life and gives joy to the world, greetings @juliakponford, and do not feel bad for this, I understand your position as organizer of the contest, the mistake was mine.

Heres my entry....Its a bit dark but I guess it fits to my blog... c&C are welcome

Hello, dear @juliakponsford and other explosive artists... Finally the blessed Hard Fork has allowed me to share my artwork... It is a proposal framed within Conceptual Art and is an Installation as a result of a Performance.

This looks interesting :)

It smells very good... It suggested me to try with conceptual art ♦ ◘○♦
