Welcome to Week 2 of the Renderosity Magazine Weekly Art Challenge! The aim of this challenge is to get everyone creating, regardless of tools or methods. This is a work in progress and the format may change as it grows.
This week's theme is "Possession"
This theme can be interpreted in different ways, and as such see where it leads for you! Again, any tools or methods are acceptable.
If you wish your work to be featured, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org, and be sure to include "Renderosity Magazine Weekly Art Challenge" in the subject line. All I ask is that for your work to be featured, it does not contain nudity, or otherwise could be deemed offensive.
Last week's challenge theme was 'smooth,' and I had a couple submissions as follows:
This piece was my own. I was just simply playing around with the gradient tool in Affinity Designer on a square shape, though it wasn't my original intention.
I hope you enjoyed this challenge and you continue to follow up weekly. Holding a weekly challenge was something I've been wanting to do for a long time, not only as a fun feature for visitors to the magazine, but for myself as well. I love seeing what others come up with when faced with a challenge, and I am one that works best with deadlines. It keeps me doing something creative each week outside of my regular work...and it's fun.
If you enjoy this weekly challenge, please spread the word. You do not need to be a member of Renderosity to participate, and you do not need to submit your work if you do not wish to. As stated previously, the format may change and I may need to start a separate area for submissions if it grows as I believe it will.
Thank you, and have a creative week ahead!
The Renderosity Magazine Weekly Art Challenge appears every Wednesday, in which I provide a prompt of sorts, whether a theme, word, or idea. There are no strict guidelines, and any tools or methods are acceptable. You can use any software you wish, or use traditional means. There are no limits to where the prompt might lead you.
Each succesive week, I will talk about the previous week's challenge, show what I came up with, as well as the work of other participants, and provide the theme/idea for the next challenge.
There are no prizes for this weekly challenge at this time. This is just to get us all doing something creative, no matter the tools or methods.
