Hi! Well, first, the mountains and the sky are perfect, but the middle ground and nearest foreground could use a little bit of tweaking...

Basically, you did do what is expected for this challenge. The area where the sky and ground meet is very well blended. However, there'...

The Last Challenges--With Good Prizes!

Journal Entry: Sun Apr 19, 2015, 11:49 AM
GROUP NEWS


Hello members!

Before I give you some bad news, let me start with the good news. There's two  last challenges that I would like all members to consider entering.

Now, don't be bashful. For the last five years, I've had comments from deviants concerning their skills, and how they do not feel like they're good enough to participate in any of the challenges, let alone a contest, but that's not true. It's why we have the Beginning, Intermediate, and Advance levels, so that you're participating with, and being compared with, members of your own skills.

Not only that, if you don't give it a try, the same people win challenge after challenge, contest after contest, and it really shouldn't be that way. 

In addition, even though many members profess that the prizes are not important, I've had too many want bigger, better prizes. Like lots of points. Well, I've talked about that before, but for these last two challenges, you should see a difference in the prizes.

I don't know when stopped participating because they thought they had to be "good" in
order to participate, or that there has to be a great prize pack on the table before they will consider entering. This group didn't start off that way. This group has always been about the "creating", the"themes", the "fun", and the camaraderie. It was never meant to be a chore.

Did you know that when I joined I had only been manipulating for a year? That I was a beginner? I joined to have someone else could give me ideas on what to manip, and stock to get me started.


Come on, let's give it another try!


So the next journal will give your the information for the second to the last challenge. I hope I'm making it fun, and give you  a way to create some really great manipulations.

Forgive the lateness but I only found out of Ron's passing last night. I am deeply sorry for your loss.

Our loss is the next life's gain. Ron write's lyrics for the celestial choir without the pain and limits of this mortal coil. My deepest sympathies dear. Please feel free to note me if you need a hand with the group.
