Gogh on and Express Yourself!

Hello Sweeties! Welcome to “Gogh on and Express Yourself!”

People express themselves in many different ways. How do you see the world? Join us for an art contest, where you can use whatever type of medium you’d like to create your own, one of a kind, piece of art. We know not everyone is a master artist, so this contest is open to amateurs and experts alike! After the submissions are over, everyone will have a chance to vote on various awards for both categories! So pick up your pen, pencil, or paintbrush, and create!

For this contest, you will create art. Of any type.
You may use crayons, pencils, charcoal, clay. Whatever.*
(If you have a question about whether a certain material is allowed, just shoot me a pm!)
(*Just photography as your art is not allowed for this contest, sorry!)

There will be two categories, and two groups within each category.
The groups are Amatuer and Professional.
If you don’t know which group you’d fit into, just say so when you enter your piece. I will ultimately make the final decision of which group you fit into.

So what do you do for this contest?
Simple.
Just create one or two pieces of art. (One piece is allowed for each category per person.)
The two categories are Nature and Fandom.
After you create your art, take a picture. Any quality of picture is fine, you will be judged on your art, not on your photography skills.

Pm your entries and which group you think you should be in to me by 11:59 PM Central Time on October 9th.

Have fun, and good luck!

I am going to have different categories, such as "best use of color" or "most realistic", etc. You will pick which piece of art best fits into that category when the time comes to vote.

No, you didn't miss it! The deadline is this Friday at midnight CT :)
Photobucket was evil and made third-party display a premium feature. Then they increased the size and obnoxiousness of the placeholder advertisement encouraging me to upgrade. Thus, this text signature.
