Sometimes we all need a challenge to get us flexing our creativity. Sometimes we all just need a push to get us doing something creative, knock us out of that artist's block, or even perhaps get us doing something outside our comfort zone.
I firmly believe that everyone has the ability to create art. Some come by it naturally, while others might have to work to find it. And some, like myself, just need deadlines...or that 'kick in the butt' to get moving. So, I've actually been kicking this idea around for awhile, to head up an art challenge in which I would also be an active participant.
This will be a weekly challenge appearing every Wednesday, in which I provide a prompt of sorts, whether a theme, word, or idea. There are no strict guidelines, and any tools or methods are acceptable. You can use any software you wish, or use traditional means. There are no limits to where the prompt might lead you.
Each succesive week, I will talk about the previous week's challenge, show what I came up with, as well as the work of other participants, and provide the theme/idea for the next challenge.
If you wish your work to be featured, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org, and be sure to include "Renderosity Magazine Weekly Art Challenge" in the subject line. The only thing I ask is that for your work to be featured, it does not contain nudity, or otherwise could be deemed offensive.
This week's theme is "Smooth"
There are no prizes for this weekly challenge at this time. This is just to get us all doing something creative, no matter the tools or methods.
Let's get creating!
