Myths and Legends: An Illustration Contest
The difference between Illustration and other art is something that many people aren't too sure about. Simply put, illustration is artwork that is created purposefully to communicate ideas, instructions or a narrative.
Telling stories is how we have learned for millenia. Cave paintings, Greek and Roman painted Urns and the Bayeux Tapestry are three excellent examples of early narrative illustration, and illustrations are still how people are taught all manner of things, from nursery to adulthood, learning everything from history to biology.
THEME - Myths and Legends
Wikipedia definitions of Myths, Legend and Folklore.
So an example of what would qualify:
:bulletred: Greek, Roman, Norse, Native American etc mythology, legends and folklore

CONTEST: Kick Your Own @ss!!!
Kick Your Own ss!

A visual art contest meant to push the Artist to new levels and challenge oneself - above all it is a contest designed around the idea of you the artist, kicking your own ss! :giggle:
So what does this mean exactly?

The Rules:
1. Entrants must re-do an existing work!  You cannot improve an existing work, it must be done from scratch but with the same concept and idea of the work you have chosen to re-create.  (Plain and simple, don't open up the old work in your graphics program and tweak it, it must be completely re-done! Same idea for traditional works!) :nod:
2. You may include new elements into the new work, or you may choose to use all of the same elements from the existing work - but either way it must be obviously referenced from your existing work so the two can be compared, you want to see how you have improved over time as an artist!

I'm not sure what to write here.
I work way too much.

Stammi Vicino, Non te ne Andare

I have a lot to say about these pieces but first, prints available here. On tumblr with detail shots:…

Most of my pieces are self-explanatory but these illustrations had some thoughts behind them that may not be entirely obvious at first glance. I thought an explanation of intent and thought process (as they mutually influenced each other for the final product) would be warranted. Lofty (and mushy) thoughts follow.

At their base, these are supposed to be a physical representation of their love and how they’ve learned to love. Yuri has learned that he’s allowed to declare his love, that it’s not an inconvenience on others, and there is joy in that freedom. His hand is outstretched as it is in the last pose of his free skate, declaring his love for Victor. Originally both hands were raised but this did not communicate all that he learned. His other hand is pressed to his chest, not as a fist but splayed, fingers open wide, showing that he can love himself and share that love.

Victor is serene in his love. He learned his love through Yuri and echoes the opening of Yuri’s free skate with his hands, the beginning of love, offered with upturned palms, like a prayer, presenting his true self and not a persona. He has serenity knowing he and his love will be treated with reverence.

Both are in layback positions to open the chest, rendering them both vulnerable. It is their show of trusting in their love. Both reach up, signifying their desire to grow and be more, as people, as someone who loves and is loved, higher goals and selves.

The growth of their love has been one of the gentlest and joyous journeys I’ve ever had the pleasure of watching. To everyone who worked on the show, I can’t thank you enough. Thank you so very much. It has been an honor.

Christmas Miracle
As Kubo-sensei said, it's a Christmas Miracle. 

Thank you Kubo-sensei and Yamamoto-sensei for a world where people can love without fear.
YoI - Yuri's Birthday

Happy Birthday Yuri! (went with that spelling since it's what he writes in the show)

I’ve never done a character birthday celebration before but then again I’ve never put out so much art so fast for any series ever. 

Hey everyone! I'm tabling at ECCC this weekend so come visit if you're there!
