Welcome to the Renderosity Magazine Monthly Art Challenge! The aim of this challenge is to get everyone creating, regardless of tools or methods. Due to participation and the need for me to spend more time to pursue other content, I decided to change the challenge to a monthly format.
This month's challenge theme is "collage"
For this challenge, I thought of an especially fun one. A collage is a form of visual arts in which visual elements are combined to create a new image that conveys a message or idea.
Hope you enjoy this challenge. And, if you have any suggestions for future challenges, please let me know!
If you wish your work to be featured, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org, and be sure to include "Renderosity Magazine Monthly 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 challenge theme was 'colorful'. Here are some submissions:

I hope you enjoyed this challenge and you continue to follow up. 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 month ahead!
The Renderosity Magazine Monthly Art Challenge appears every month, in the first week of the month, 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 month, I will talk about the previous 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 monthly challenge at this time. This is just to get us all doing something creative, no matter the tools or methods.
