The Western theme was a huge success so we've decided to do another historical theme for March.
We have decided upon.....
We have decided upon.....
Submit your castles/cathedrals, sirs/serfs, maidens/monarchs and anything else remotely medieval by the 29th March to be in with a chance of winning a prize. As always the theme is up for interpretation; magic and sci-fi elements are welcome.
The votes are in! And it was a pretty close call but the winner for February's 'Wild West' theme, by just a few votes, is Damien Colboc! Well done Damien! A prize will be on it's way to you. If your interested in seeing more of Damien's work you can view his tumblr page here: https://damiencolboc.tumblr.com/
Joint second place goes to Antonio Gimenez and Marc Perez (for War Painting). Well done guys!
Before we all go riding off into the sunset, I just want to thank all the artists for this months blog. It was our biggest ever and the quality, as always, was fantastic. Thanks to everyone who voted too. We had another huge turn out.

The lady in this is taken from reference. I don't THINK this image would ever have popped in to my head naturally.
Some time in the 1800s this handsome gal thought this would be a good photo idea and I salute her for it.
(Also, if you don't know that cowboy saying about getting off horses and drinking milk, then this will seem MENTAL. I'm telling you, this image is all completely based in fact.)
Annie Oakley was a proper bad ass sharpshooter of the late 1800's who traveled fairs as an exhibition shooter and taught the gals of the wild west how to handle a fire arm and defend themselves. Brutal times.
She offered her shooting skillz and to lead female sharpshooters in World War 1, but when she had no response she visited army camps, raised money for the Red Cross and volunteered with military charities instead.
Some fella on a horse.

Already onto February's theme and you'd better saddle up for this 'yin -- as the new theme is
'The Wild West'.
So watch your favourite spaghetti western, walk around like John Wayne, play that Red Dead PS4 game from last year, ride into work on horseback anything that will get you inspired.

This is the snow maiden or Snegyrochka, she is Father Frost's niece. She was created out of snow by an elderly couple who couldn't have children. with the help of the North winds and Father Frost she was brought to life and became the old couples daughter. Unfortunately she could not stay with them when spring came, so she was adopted by Father Frost and is now his helper and bring Christmas joy to all. There is another version of her tale and you can easily find it on Wiki. she is kinda our version of Miss Claus. Hope you guys like it, first time posting. Hoping to do this more often.

In this picture, Santa finished up his deliveries hours ago at this house and he's celebrated that moment. The town is still but i'd like to think there's some kid out there who is going through what I did.

We've come to the last artblog of the year!
The theme is Christmas (shocker!!!). You can do whatever you please but for those struggling to come up with ideas i'll throw this option at you - 'Christmas Songs'. Base a picture on a christmas song that you like
here's a few suggestions:
Rudolph, The Red Nosed Reindeer
The Little Drummer Boy
Frosty The Snowman
Santa Claus Is Coming To Town
12 Days Of Christmas
It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas
I Saw Three Ships Come Sailing In
You're A Mean One, Mr. Grinch
Mr. Hankey The Chris........(actually not that one)
This all sounds rather twee but we want your more weird and subversive entries too (as long as it's in good taste).

This is the basic idea although I wouldn't mind at all if it was modified. As long as it was bold, colourful and had lots of spammy faces in it. Bit concerned it might be a bit too trippy. The more I was looking at it, the more I was getting freaked out.
