Submission Rules and Guide

New SdJ: Bat

Journal Entry: Fri Mar 24, 2017, 3:25 PM
New Sdj 'Bat' is at 80 min max.

Batman, the animal, the club/cudgel/stick tool, a batsman, or the insults 'old bat'  ( an old person, especially an old woman they think is silly, annoying, or unpleasant) or 'batty'  as in crazy insane or odd, eccentric; 'have bats in the belfry', are some of your options ;)

7 challenges 'Stand' can be last stand, last man standing, making a stand, a music stand, a bus stand, or just plain standing.


The 7 Weekly themes challenge. Suggested 30-60 minute's per piece, but as entries don't compete with each other time is not important.
Entries for the weekly challenge and 3 SdJ's from now to next Monday also count towards your 7.
You can win 7 challenges by completing all 7 topics, but with no winners, which is common, the feature goes to the the one who got closest, the most prolific painter, as in the one who completes the most challenges.


The SDJ is ' Bat '~ 80 mins
The Weekly challenge is ' Dragon '~  180 minutes
The 7 challenges is  ' Stand, Necromancer, Volcano ' ~ No fixed time, suggested 20-60 min  per theme


Congratulations to  frochka for winning the feature for the SdJ, "Beastly Beauty"!

Hi~ I was wanting to submit  SDJ- Mechanical Soldier by HalanLore  to the Daily SDJ folder for the speedy dujour Mechanical Soldier. Unfortunately I haven't been accepted into the group yet so it won't let me submit it myself.

Sorry about that, things are a tiny bit slower because of the holidays.
I'm setting up the new journal for the new SDJ right now, but I do have the timestamp of your request to join the group so I'll accept it as an entry for Monday's SDJ since it was technically submitted on time.

Just submit it to the SDJ folder and I'll accept it. 

And I'll add it to the features gallery once it's been submitted.

Thanks for joining!

I really like the variety of themes in the contests! Can I ask how you come up with the ideas for themes? Do you have some random theme generator lying around, or do you just use your endless well of creativity? :)
Birgitte-Gustavsen Featured By Owner Aug 27, 2016  Student Digital Artist
Glad you like the themes :D Unless I get a decent random idea, I look at recent stuff in my watch list and see if something there fires off some sparks. If that fails, i zone out and try and imagine stuff I'd like to paint and what I imagine members might like to paint. If i'm still lost, off to wikiart/wikipedia/googleart. My last desperate measure is going back through our own history and find an old theme. 

Topic suggestions are always welcome
But i seldom get any ;)
JakobHansson Featured By Owner Aug 28, 2016  Professional Digital Artist
Thanks for the answer. Please keep up the great work!
If you want some more input for themes, you could perhaps include a line in the journal  
"Suggestions for  themes are welcome" or something like that :)
