Here come the Contests!

Hey there all you lovely lemondrops! You might've thought our group became inactive or something along those lines, but rest assured! Our fantastic admin team have been checking up on our group every day! It's just, we've been discussing behind the scenes which contest theme to place next, and without a clear 'choice,' the journals were left untouched :( The winners were only meant to remain on the page for a month or less, but alas it took quite a bit of deciding. So to everyone, I apologise!

But in more important news! OUR NEW CONTEST.
Our lovely blithebird came up with an idea of a 'Bi-Monthly' contest. Our group would host a contest every two months with prizes up for grabs and a group page feature that would remain for a month or less, so in a sense, the contests are actually every 2 and a half months. The deadline for this upcoming contest will be themed something along the lines of April Fools

April Fools

The contest deadline will be on the 1st of April and will be based on the idea of 'April Fools,' but the final theme has not been announced yet. Prizes are also being decided so do keep an eye out.

The final theme/prompt will be announced over the next few days or so, so please keep an eye out!

Donations, contributions and prizes offered would be such an appreciation! Giving out prizes solely by myself would prove quite difficult as I'd run out of points to give quite quickly! :<

In the Meantime...

Keep submitting your lovely works and just... being you! ^^

Our 1st Contest, Over!

So, as we've said before, this contest marks one of the very first important events in our group, our very first contest! It's been such a pleasure to be able to post up these wonderful pieces by these great artists as well as such an honour to have these members apart of our group. The submissions were great and we got some nice support from our group members as well as participation in our final judging which was great!
I'd like to thank all the participants and supporters of this contest very much! And now, on with the final moment, the winners!

First Place : Lilaccu

Lilaccu is a very talented artist of our group who appears to focus in digital art as well as having a forte in traditional mediums, even writing one of her own fan comic, Hydrangea. She's one of those artists that you find on deviant art and just seem to be swept away by her talent. Her artwork displays excellent technique, skill and use of colour. She is able to capture various different types of emotions perfectly with her skilfully drawn facial expressions and body language. Humans and elves appear to be her forte, in general, the human figure. She draws with excellent anatomical knowledge and skill and paints the human figure wonderfully, hands, hair, figure and all. Her use of vibrant colours creates an endless flow of energetic vibes throughout her great artworks that consist of a unique anime style. Her paintings of humans and elves are beautiful, but so are her wonderful backgrounds. With a rough and sketchy look, the backgrounds are precise at the same time and are really distinguishable at what they are. Lilaccu is definitely a talented artist who earns first place for the first contest hosted by spread-theArt.
It is an honour to be able to announce her submission as the winner of the contest.

Here are some examples of her great work,

Vigilante of Knights Errant by Lilaccu S t a r M a k e r by Lilaccu Awakening by Lilaccu

Cursed Eye Devon by Lilaccu Magica Madoka Mami Homura by Lilaccu Illusionist - Eden Eternal by Lilaccu

Second Place Aikurisu

Aikurisu is another very talented artist who participated in the contest and we are very proud to announce him as one of the winners. Aikurisu is another of those artists you find and feel intrigued by their unique style. His pieces are very dramatic and are focally concentrated on a single subject or concept. He uses very washed out colours, mainly consisting of blue and green hues in combination with his atmospheric creations. He is a very skilful artist who also understands the anatomic structure of humans and can also paint fantasy backgrounds beautifully with lots of detail and imagination.

An example of some of his works,

Arcadians by Aikurisu Ishayr's Three by Aikurisu Elsest Fortress by Aikurisu

Third Place feigenfrucht

feigenfrucht is a photographer of mostly flora. She is a photographer who appears to be familiar with macro photography from extreme close-ups featuring the details and textures of the subject to closeups of the entire subject. The composition of her shot's are quite interesting and thoughtful, being able to place her subjects that give them prominence and create a focal point in her shots. Her vast gallery of flora shots are simply beautiful, consisting of vividly coloured flowers of all sorts.

An example of some of her works,

Hi fellow deviants! This is a new group made for everyone and anyone.
Firstly, we'd like to pose to you a question.

Ever made an artwork you were so proud of and felt accomplished about...
... yet never got the recognition you deserved for it?

Ever wanted to see your art up on 'featured' blogs, lists etc?...
... yet never were given the opportunity?

Ever wanted to get commented, favourites, critiques etc?...
... yet never got more than one or two of these?

Our purpose of this group is to feature and showcase the talent of the thousands of artists that exist out there who don't deserve the  recognition. We want to create a group that does this, although you may hear this over and over, we would like to bring this to the dA community. We want to allow you to contribute your art and get the recognition you deserve!

So come along, if your one of these or if you just want to support art and artists alike who can relate.

Feel free to join and post any artwork you like and hopefully we can show the world your wonderful talent!

Please do invite your friends to our group! We'd appreciate it so much

:bulletred:   :bulletorange:   :bulletyellow:   :bulletgreen:   :bulletblue:   :bulletpurple:

One way we plan to tackle this and achieve our objectives, is through an idea called 'Share the Art' features.
It is a way of linking several artists who seek recognition through a free feature chain through various deviant's journals and is a very fun way to get in touch!

My 'Share the Art' feature is here,


If you would like to get featured, visit the journal and find out how!

:bulletred:   :bulletorange:   :bulletyellow:   :bulletgreen:   :bulletblue:   :bulletpurple:

This group was founded by me, :iconkelogsloops: and :icondonaldcuk:
