Final poll is up, vote for the winner![link]
Made from the top 3 of both the original polls. We had no late entries, didn't think we would, thought somebody would have complained if they had been trying to submit.
Onwards to February! Hopefully this time I have the permissions right. Today I've chosen 4 stock pictures because I've chosen the dragon fruit so you have one picture for the outside skin and one picture to show what the centre looks like.
I painted a dragon fruit frog once, it was really fun. I'm excited by this challenge.REMEMBER
if you want to enter the February challenge you must credit the stock properly. Its not hard, I have provided a How To, you can find this on our front page below the current journal. You must also notify the stock provider by sending a link to your picture. Often they have a rule for how they want to receive that, please check their rules.
Also remember that I check the rules of the stock images I choose, there should be nothing to catch you out like non-commercial use or no off-site use, if you use other stock as well you must check that provider's own rules yourself. I'm only looking after the stock I pick, if you break someone else's rules that's your problem to solve.Other contests:
None that I know of sorry.
My current balance is: 360 points, this will be used to buy 2013's subscription which is about 9700 points. No hurry there then
Note: points must be sent to
