Project Educate - Resources Week! Update
- some of our affliates are running contests, you can find details below
So Resources Week is done - 4 lovely entries. Shall I do a poll for winner? If I put the winner in the Featured gallery our April winner gets less time on the front page? They will of course end up in a news article at some point.
I think you still have 5 days to finish a May Challenge entry.

Since this group is all about using resources we simply must take part. As an added incentive there is a group sub up for grabs see [link]
To find out more about Project Educate or indeed stock in general, if you have developed a taste for it, please go to Reminder: Challenge Suggestions!
Please also remember that we have a favourites folder for stock called Challenge Suggestions. If you see a wonderful and inspiring piece of stock that you think you could turn into a dragon please do add it to our favourites folder. When you are viewing the deviation just click submit to group, pick the favourites tab on the top and then choose
and pick Challenge Suggestions from the drop down menu. Will then need to wait for me to approve the suggestions. Obviously make sure its in the stock galleries before you submit it please.
And now down to the fun part, the special Resources Week challenge.
For 1 week only you all have to draw
as a purple dragon! At the end of the week I will show `PurpelBlur
what we think he looks like, don't go and spoil the surpise OK?
Why you ask? Because it was his journal that told me about all of this.
And your resources for this challenge are:
As usual you may do a dragon based on 1, 2 or even all of the pictures.

Deadline is at 15th of June - Theme is Summer and your entry must be fantasy and have wings. You could totally draw a dragon *nods*
:: The May Challenge::
You have until the end of May to submit your entry to the May 2011 Entries folder.
You must draw one of the following 3 types of Dragon taken from Dr Ernest Drake's Dragonolgy set of books.
The Knucker (Draco troglodytes)
The Asian Lung (Draco orientalis)
The Wyvern (Draco africanus)
I'd prefer it if you did not combine the types as they live in drastically different enviroments and would probably never meet unless in the cages of a collector or zoo.
Please see the journal [link]
for full descriptions.
Please do not copy the images from the Dragonology books, they are not stock.
1. Must be new and your own work, please credit all stock used and follow the individual stock artist's rules.
2. Must contain at least one dragon.
3. Must be able to explain how the picture fits the challenge.
