    Hi Everyone,

    Thought i'd let you know the forum's dirty little secret for the month of October.
    New competition!
    New sponsor!!
    New awesome prizes!
    The theme is going to be around bio-mechanical art. We (the moderators) have been in discussion and things will be run slightly differently to the past with voting rounds changing/ evolving slightly to ward off any possible buying of facebook likes etc. We would also like to make this comp alot more accessible to beginners by providing a simplistic reference to include in your artwork.
    A reference will be supplied, however it's undecided as of yet whether it will be the theme of the artwork or whether it will simply have to be included.
    I'd like to ask for a quick hand in finding references, if there's anything that tickles your fancy, it can be a small logo, large image, skull reference, bio mech reference etc - just an image that can be included within the main artwork as criteria to give everyone the same starting point..
    if you could post them in here would be much appreciated you cheeky devils.
    Thanks :triumphant:

    Steampunk_by_PReilly.jpg simple_thoughts_by_einlee.jpg This come to my mind the first probably is more steampunk then biomech. Maybe an idea for the next competition?

    Check out Sculptor Christopher Conte at www.microbotic.org This is where my inspiration for the next bio-piece will come from. He is too good to keep secret from you biomech fans.ENJOY.

    Some examples here, of some features that could be integrated on something bigger or could be painted like the way they are for begginers and advance painters. Hope that this might help.

    I've just downloaded the Magazine...in a word 'WOW'; packed with excellent content, very good graphics, well written and edited (imo); loads of different areas covered and precisely what I need. Anyway, enough said, I'm off to read more of my magazine, nice one Mitch.
