Contests, News, and Features

Elementals Contest (CLOSED!)Earth, Fire, Water, Air, and Uranium? What's this? A CONTEST? My challenge for you is to create a stock and/or art piece depicting elementals/elements whether it be of the traditional elements or the newfangled chemistry elements. I want to see your creativity!
There are no required stocks and the contest is open to stockers, traditional artists, and digital artists.
Clarification: You can depict as many of the elements as you wish in your entry whether it be one or many. You can do the earth, water, fire, air type elementals, or elementals related to chemistry elements, or even elementals that combine both types of elements!

There are three categories:
Stock Images
Art: Traditional
Art: Digital

 To submit your entry either comment on this journal or send me them via note.
I have an exam Tuesday and won't have much time unt
  Exciting Stock News
(Display and Photo: Nadya Bennett)
My stock has been used in the giraffe exhibit at the Colombus Zoo in Ohio!
The two reticulated giraffe photographs on the display are my stock images. I was contacted by the zoo's graphic designer, Nadya Bennett several months ago about using the images and I was thrilled. I love zoos and environmental education. The exhibit opened late May and I just got the photos from Nadya Bennett. So I'm pretty happy about this because who would have thunk? 
The stock images used:
What have been some of your exciting stock uses?
Also I am planning an art/stock contest with the theme of "Elementals". I'll have the details out next week for ya'll

  Feeling a little over the moon at the moment...G'day everyone!
I thought I would share my good news with you.
Today I entered into the Western Australian Heats for the Madman National Cosplay Championships - there were a total of 7 entrants; the most from any state and the most WA has ever had.
The competition was fierce and I entered with my Lady Elizabeth Midford cosplay, doing a skit about 4 tips for capturing the heart of a prospective love interest (of course they were completely unhelpful).

I mean come on, does she look like a character you should take seriously? :P

Anyway.... I WON!

I was not expecting it at all. It was a massive surprise - they caught it on video so I'm sure my reaction will be available on youtube in a couple of days.
In short, it was awesome. This was the first major cosplay contest that I've enter

New Cosplay Facebook PageG'day everyone,
Just a heads up that I have created a new facebook page for my cosplays. I will still be uploading them on here as stock, but I will be uploading WIPs there and showing any commissions I do on there too. (Yes, I am opening up the gates for commissions - a scary gate - but I figure if something is too complicated and I don't feel comfortable that I will be able to achieve it, I can tell the person in advance) :)
Please check it out and like!
Much love!

Caption: You will go to facebook and like my page.
