    Welcome to the Pic of the Month (PoM)!!!!!

    What is Pic of the Month (PoM)??

    It's a friendly monthly contest to showcase your artwork of the month!

    Why?

    The winner will get their pic displayed on the forum's front page, along with a new badge below their username letting everyone know they're the Artist of the Month!

    How to enter?

    Paint whatever you would like, just like you're doing now, but you must create a thread in either the;

    (See bottom of post for example)

    Once you have completed your artwork, then you may post your finished piece under the stickie which will be created for the current month in the Picture of the Month forum + you will need to post a link to the thread you created under your picture.
    (This is a matter of finding your thread and copying the address in your browser's address bar!)

    On the beginning of the next month we will create a 3-5 day poll for you to vote on the artworks shown in that stickie, so you will have 5 days to vote!

    The Picture of the Month will run from the 1st of the month to the last day of the month, and we will start the poll on the 1st of the following month.

    Your picture should have been done either the month of the current PoM or the month previous.
    you cannot submit the same picture twice, unless the only reason for doing so is because you didn't originally submit your picture with a tutorial.

    So what are you waiting for??

    Come show off your artwork!

    Example:

    Here is my entry!!

    Work in Progress or Tutorial

    Hey Everyone - just to quickly re-affirm what SeaMonks has said - the only criteria to entering the picture of the month is that you have to show progression pics at the very least. It would be great if it was accompanied with a step through on how you've actually done the image to teach others, but at the very least progression pics. As well as helping others learn, we'd also like to encourage you to paint new artworks and we feel this is the best way possible with our internet resource! Thanks to all who participate and good luck!

    Amendment..

    All,

    Please take a look at the original post (post #1) as we have made some modifications and clarifications for how the PoM thread will be run.
    Changes include:
    • Clarification of criteria
    • How voting will be conducted
    • Length of time for voting
    • Clear process for how to enter the picture of the month - by creating a WIP thread or Airbrush Tutorial thread - progress shots are a necessity:)
    • Must post a link to your WIP or Tutorial thread underneath your picture
    I'm sure there will be more clarifications in the future and we'll just have to update the PoM thread as we have done here:) thanks to all who have participated thus far and a big thanks the Seamonk Airbrush-Pants for moderating it:)

    There is nothing wrong with mixing it up, but since it is an airbrush forum, it should have some airbrush work in the piece. But I'm not totally against it either. If there is a good WIP thread or video to go along with it, I would love it. Curious to how the others feel about this one???

    If it's art, I love it, even if it's a finger painting, since we do have a pin-striping section you will hear no complaints from me, unless of course it's rubbish in which case my ruthless Scottish honesty would be let loose, lol

    Art comes from the heart and as such depicts "FREEEEEEEEEE DOOOOOOOOOM" lol

    Sorry so late, but you can put as many as you want in as long as it was painted in that month of the comp, or the previous month and just couldn't be finished in time to enter that month. Just don't put something in the December comp. when you finished in June :)

    I just tried to post my submission to image of the month and it reads error. It said I have to post more threads before I am allowed to post images and links? I had already posted a WIP thread, and had no problems inserting images there. Whats the deal?

    Does the wip have to be done on this site?
    I've created my own digital diary website and it would be so much easier giving that link instead of posting a full wip here. :eek:)

    Thanks Diego. I was obviously a little hasty as I scanned through the thread. (In my defence I'm using my mobile phone and the text is very, very small)

    Only if it is done in s tasteful way. But remember we do have children on this forum . So if you do post anything with nudity please place a warning you the thread title.
