Dark Fairytales Challenge

Journal Entry: Tue Jan 13, 2015, 10:29 AM
Hello Friends...

This is the new challenge at :iconcastle-of-cards: and I'm hoping to see y'all join in the game.  We're getting some really neat, inspiring works in the group these days. Check it out.

The first challenge of 2015 is: Dark Fairytales. I think we're all (overly) familiar with all the tales that are sweet and probably made for young ones. But what about those that are a little darker with not necessarily a happy ending? I'm thinking of many of the Grimm tales and Hans Christian Anderson for instance. I hope you find this concept inspiring, as I do.

Create a work that is based on a fairytale. This can be dark, macabre and even horror. I'd like to see your best work, in any medium. Be sure to reference in your note which tale you are illustrating.

:bulletred: fairytale or "dark tale" must be your inspiration
:bulletred: media open
:bulletred: reference your tale in your description
:bulletred: challenge ends March 1st
:bulletred: Size- this is one of the few times in the year that I am not requiring a "card" shaped size. I   hope that allows for more freedom in your creations.

There WILL be prizes! Either points, artwork or exclusive stock.

OK, I think this covers it all. Be sure to tell your friends or include this journal in any groups you are an "influencer" in. It would be great to have LOADS of dark tales to muse on over a nice cup of tea. :)

General instructions for submission…

Red Scott
United States
I'm a mixed media artist, word weaver, songstress and dreamer of dreams. One accomplishment I'm proud of, has been the founding of the Capolan Exchange which, over the last two decades has morphed into the Traveler's H'Art art exchange and electronic dialogue group. I've been imagining and facilitating collaborative art card deck projects for as long a time as well. When I'm not singing, creating art, writing or dancing I find myself living out my days in that 'other world' of wife, mother of four, gardener, student and the occasional cleaner of the home.
Oh! gramma to Nova Joy, Lukas and we welcomed Luna Autumn in September 2014. All in all, it's a full life and one I'm grateful for.

Current Residence: California USA
deviantWEAR sizing preference: medium
Print preference: medium
