Renderosity Magazine Weekly Art Challenge - Week 11

May 11, 2022 at 12:00 am by nickcharles

Welcome to Week 11 of the Renderosity Magazine Weekly Art Challenge! The aim of this challenge is to get everyone creating, regardless of tools or methods. 

This week's theme is "color"

I use a random word generator each week for this challenge. If you haven't used one, there are plenty available and I highly recommend using one. I keep a word generator app on my phone and use it quite often for writing and general inspiration. As I started learning photography in the last couple years, sometimes I feel uninspired, or at a loss of what to photograph. My word generator app helps to give me ideas, or a focus.

This week's theme word, 'color,' brings up a ton of possibilities. And, as I've stated in past weeks, do not feel constricted by the theme, but let it lead you somewhere. Meaning, if you start with an initial idea of the word and it goes far off that word, or idea, that is perfectly fine. The whole purpose of this challenge is to get you thinking and creating in your tool or medium of choice.

See where the word color leads you!

Next week I'm going to try something a bit different.

If you wish your work to be featured, contact me at, 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 'gear.' Here are a couple submissions:


This piece was submitted by artdreamer on Renderosity.

"Because I don't normally speak English, but Dutch I sometimes have to look up what the given word, such as this week the word 'gear' exactly means. In google I got 'versnelling' as the result, which can be understood as anything, such as hard running, the gearbox of a car, etc. After that, the Dutch/English dictionary also offered a lot of possibilities.
Ultimately this is my creation. This is Malik, one of the Poser characters, so I created him in Poser. Then I edited the image in Photoshop using multiple filters. The background I made in Terragen and edited it further using Artbreeder."

This piece, "Dr. Who and the Spirits of Mount Mindhead," was submitted by APlusDesign.

"Gearing up for an adventure! A tribute to the Dr. Who Series with this fictional episode "Dr. Who and the Spirits of Mount Mindhead." Put together in Daz 3d Studio and then I experimented with some post effects in Camera Bag Pro. First three in this series of images here, I was trying for an old movie feel. The Fourth image I put on a vignette, and the fifth image is my original render."

This piece was my own. This was made with the fractal program, Apophysis.

I hope you enjoyed this challenge and you continue to follow up weekly. And, 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. This is a work in progress and the format may change as it grows.

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.
