FUN COLLAB PROJECT - #1 Colorful Carnations

This is our first COLORED PENCIL Magazine Collaborative Project!

We only have room for 9 artists to work together to create a beautiful floral image.
Get your spot - Create your Art - Get a Print of finished piece





$9.99
ONLY 9 Spots Available!

Includes image files & finished print



HOW DOES IT WORK?
Each artist will receive an invitation to share a folder that will contain a high resolution photo of the entire picture and their own exclusive piece. These pieces were cut with a dimension of 3.5x2.5" - perfect for an ATC card but you can any size as long as the ratio is the same (example: 7x5", 10.5x 7.5").

You get 1 month to create your part in colored pencil. Then scan or take a high resolution image of your finished work then just upload it into your shared folder for us to collect.

Once we have all the pieces we will assemble them to create a work of art. Each participating artist will receive a 10.75x8.25" UV protected print on thick 80# paper with a link to purchase more.

CAN I CHOOSE MY PICTURE/PIECE?
No, we will pick a photo piece at random for you - this is part of the fun and it keeps it fair.

WHY DO YOU CHARGE?
First of all we want to make sure only serious artists participate, the group is counting on you. Second, this will cover the price of your print and shipping costs related. This first collab is available at a special low rate.

WHAT IF I CAN'T FINISH?
Obviously, we don't want you to get involved unless you can finish, it is only a small piece but if circumstances beyond your control come up we ask that you contact us as soon as you know so we can find a replacement. We will have an artist on stand-by to complete any last minute bail-outs.

IS THIS OPEN INTERNATIONALLY?
Yes! Anyone in the whole world can collaborate, and that is what makes this so much fun.

ADVANCED WINNER - MaryJane Sky


WHY IT WON: We couldn’t believe how real this image looks. The beak is outstanding as is the three dimensional quality, you can really feel the slight distance from the head to the tail feathers. We know how difficult those feathers can be and you executed them beautifully with a depth and softness that makes them truly believable. We also had to note the areas around the eye and how you successfully captured those fine details that we know must have taken a lot of time. Bravo!


BEGINNER WINNER - Silvana Vargas


WHY IT WON: Although a bit on the light side, we were impressed with the rendering skills used to really make this a stand out piece. The beak was especially well done and the subtle shift in tone in the background helps to pull out all the details of the feathers. We also noted the subtle reflections on the neck and face that really add a warmth to this beautiful white peacock.

JUNIOR WINNER - Krisha Bajaj, age 11



WHY IT WON: This peacock is just radiant! We love all the details you put in this one and how you took your time with each feather. You did such a great job making the body stand out from the tail features with your white tone variations. Nice work on the reflection, too. I would love to see you add a little blue in that eye to really give him some life. Keep going, you are doing awesome!
