"Imagine - My Peaceful Place"

Rain Stars Purple by daniya-ART EPIC by Zeraga Rain Stars Purple by daniya-ART

We have included a few lines of the song to help tyou start thinking about it :)

"Imagine no possesions,
I wonder if you can,
No need for greed or hunger
a brotherhood of man,
Imagine all the people sharing all the world, you
You may say I'm a dreamer,
But I'm not the only one,
I hope some day you'll join us
And the world will be as one."

Good Evening. I'd like to take a shot at this contest. Didn't get the chance to follow up earlier, my fault.Sweating a little... 
But I have a question,though. Is it okay to submit a drawing I've already posted or make another artwork?
The one I've already posted in this group called "Escape ~ Part 2". In the traditional art folder you can check it out.
Much love, thanks.

HI there :wave:. If this piece was  submitted to DA after the 15th October 2017 then this will be fine. It was supposed to be made with this contest in mind, however you obviously think that this fits our guidelines :). Just delete it from the group and then resubmit to the contest folder :)

(I'm sorry I didn't look as you didn't send a link :))

If you have any problems just let us know.

OK. Just got from removing it from the group to re-sending it for the contest. The problem I faced is the limitation of posting three artworks within the week. Therefore, I'm gonna have to wait it out by tomorrow or the middle of the week before the deadline to contribute my art. Unless, of course, there's an alternative.

Thanks

That shouldn't affect you submitting as the contest folder permissions are separate to the rest? If this is still a problem just note me the link/thumbnail and I can request it :)

can i take some ideas from other pictures or just from my mind 100%

If you are doing a photomanipulation, you need to reference all of the stock you used.

If you are doing a painting and you want to use an image that someone else owns, if that person is on DA, you can ask them if they mind if you use their image as a reference. I have done that when I have used a photographers image to paint a landscape. I then gave them credit by referencing their photo in the description, and giving them a link :)

Hope this helps :)

Hi Gigi. If you haven't submitted to DA yet it will be fine :)

Contest closes on the 30th, so by the time I get my self organised to send notes and then give people time to vote it will probably be around the 8th of December. We will then be giving people plenty of time to vote so you should be fine :)

We haven't tried this method of voting before but I took my idea from someone else that does this as it seems a fair way to do things :)
