Halloween Art Party 2022: Rise of the Demonspawn!
Okay, here it is - your Halloween challenge for 2022! (which I actually wrote for last year but never posted ).
I’ve waited a bit to leave some space for the monthly contest to get going and so it’s a bit closer to Halloween.
This isn’t an official event - just me continuing the long-standing tradition (from that one-time challenge two years ago). I hope you’ll still join in and make it a fun seasonal activity!
Feel free to use this thread for discussion and WIPs.
The Short Brief:
Paint a picture of a demonic creature.
They should be wearing or using at least one party accessory and bearing a gift.
The tone is horror/comedy in whatever ratio and style you choose.
Include the whole creature in the frame - not cropped/close up.
Post it in the art section on or before Sunday 31st October (Halloween).
General site rules on content apply.
Update! - I’ve now added a thread for collective posting of pictures here:
The Epic Version
And lo; It came to pass that the 666th person did request that some feature in Krita should be ‘more like Photoshop’.
And the great Goddess Halla did shed a tear in anguish, which falling to the Earth did breaketh the seal to the gates of the underworld.
And from the abyss therein did pour the demonic hordes who were now free to walk the earth and smite those who would doubteth the power of The Krita.
You have been visited by a demonic creature who demands you demonstrate your prowess in the holy art of Krita by capturing its likeness in the style of your choosing!
Having been contained for countless aeons the demons are now ‘well up for a party’ and grab any party accessories to hand.
They also come bearing ‘gifts’ – knowing of the tradition of ‘giving’ but never having partaken in such festivities before.
Let your imagination run free…
You get a warm fuzzy feeling from participating in a community activity.
Those found unworthy will be damned to spend eternity painting ‘happy little trees’ with Windows Paint and a mouse, on an ageing computer, with an unstable copy of Windows 95 and Clippy the MS Office assistant continually mocking you while you work.
Rules: Paint a picture. Don’t break the rules.
Do’s and Dont’s
Do: Join in
Do: Have fun
Don’t: Be a chicken
Don’t: Be boring
