@QuietYell I like the bunny too I actually didn't see ti at first glance because I was looking at the little girl, whom I also think looks great

@Eric-Castleman Yes, that rabbit! I noticed that girl immediately, but then I saw that rabbit and it absolutely stole my heart away.
Wow! You are on it! Nice. ️

Thank you all so much. I am glad you like it, and the rabbit definitely was fun to put together. Everyone here has helped me so much over the last 11 months, and I can point out numerous things in this piece that are the product of many people on these forums, as well as the classes at SVS. So it is great to get everyones approval here.

Just joined here and would love to join this contest quick question does it have to be a digital illustration or can it be hand painted?
@ambiirae it can be anything. There are a lot of artists here that work traditional.

@Chip-Valecek Like me! Not sure if I'll do this or not...I'm feeling a bit worn out from my 30 day challenge
@Marsha-Kay-Ottum-Owen you should do these! they matter more than the studies do.
@Lee-White Okay. I actually played around a bit today with an idea. BTW, I have a question. I am going to redraw my current book dummy better. For one thing I am going to put all my spreads onto one sheet instead of on two! Also, I am sure that I can improve on my drawings. I know it will never be perfect and I kind of need to finish it before I get so sick of it it completely loses any joy that might come from painting it! Are there people who will just look at a dummy once it is set (I am self-publishing) and give me feedback? I know you are going to be doing those things where you go over portfolio's and help with selling and all that-I can't remember what it was called but, I was thinking it would be nice to have someone at least just look at my dummy and give me some professional feedback on the layout and composition, etc. before I start painting. I really want to finish this book but I want it to look as good as my ability allows at this point in my quest to improve Thanks!

Ok, lets give it a try:) My first post to the forum here)
I tree house of the Poison Wizard.
If I were a poison witch
I'd start my pills shop selling each:
2 dollars per a happy pill +50 off per pill of rich,
5 dollars for a pill of love
And bonus free pill to get rid of
@Lisa-F Do you send out emails for each month? I keep seeing this when the date is here, but not in advance. Thanks, Kim
@KGatto There was an email that went out a few days ago which I received. You are not late at all, you have till the end of the month to submit your piece.
I'm not entering of course, but I thought I'd post this here since it's a treehouse. I taught digital matte painting for animation for a number of years. This was one of my demos in class where I started with a background photo and painted onto it. Took about 45 min-1 hour.

@KGatto Hello! Not sure I totally understand the question, so let me know if I didn't answer it right, but I'll give it a try So, I do send out emails about the contest, however we just started the contest in May, so it's only been two emails so far I sent one about Mermaids in May, and I just sent one yesterday about the Treehouses. I see your email address on our email list, so maybe they are not getting through? Could they be getting sent to your junk mail? I just had some troubles with my Outlook account all the sudden sending all kinds of legit emails to my junk mail, so I'm trying to go through and add the emails I want to see to my contacts list. Maybe try adding firstname.lastname@example.org to your contacts list?
I'll also be updating about the contests in the News section of the SVS website, and will hopefully soon be adding a schedule on the website. Are there other ways you would want to be notified? Let me know!
@Lee-White that looks great - I'm assuming that this is a photobash image. That is something I would love to see on SVS. I think there are a lot on http://fengzhudesign.com/ but I haven't spent time with them yet. Any other areas of guidance for such?
@QuietYell Here's the background that I painted this on:
@Lisa-F Hi Lisa, Sorry about this. I misunderstood. I thought it was an email saying contest was over for June. So when is the image due? I will check the email again. I saw the mermaid prompt and was too busy to think. Then, I saw this and thought it was due early June. I will definitely do something for June since i have a perfect image I wanted to get to. Thanks. Kim
@KGatto So would this be third thursday of june. Sorry. Brain recalculating. Would this be the 15th?
