:iconcolorfulsparklesplz:DEADLINE = DECEMBER 24TH :iconcolorfulsparklesplz:

Hey guys~ It's been a while since our last update.

As you all know preorders were suppose to end yesterday on the 21st, and the books were suppose to be shipped out & etc. BUT! There's a change of plans. We had a few delays with the printing company so the books won't arrive to us until the middle of December.

So now PREORDERS DEADLINE HAS BEEN EXTENDED TO DECEMBER 21TH. That will also be the new date for when the books will be shipped out. 


Good news is that this will give more time for you guys to order the books and get free posters & bookmarks! Bad news is that for those of you who already ordered you'll have to wait another extra month D:


We're terribly for any inconvenience that we've caused OTL But we promise the books should definitely get to you all sometime over the winter break! 

In other news though, the posters and bookmarks have arrived without any issues (: So for those of you who ordered the donations package - we'll be shipping them out over the next week! Look forward to it because they all look amazing~
Finally after months of preparations and work, we are happy to announce that the Dream in Color charity art book is officially OPEN FOR PREORDERS!!!

Now here's what you've all been waiting for... The five judges were:
:iconyuuike::iconvorpheuss::iconyamio::iconkamaniki::iconedenfox:

First we all chose 10 of what we think are the best art works from the contest entry folders and combined the results. Then each of us voted for what we believed to be the winners and the votes are tallied to see which one gets the most. In the end here are our top five pieces that will be featured in the art book:

First place:

:iconastruma:"Fantasies of a Child"
Fantasies of a Child by Astruma


Second place:

:iconnilanandita:"My Private Library"
My Private Library by NilaNandita


Runner-ups:

:iconhoharibo:"Dream of Childhood"
Dream of Childhood by hoharibo


:iconapieceoftofu:"Our Story"
Our Story by apieceofTofu


:iconrimehh:"Floating Lights"
<da:thumb id="472375300"/>



Honorable Mentions:

These are the art works that received a vote from the judges to become one of the top 10s. Unfortunately your artworks will not be in the art book but they definitely deserves to be featured!

Could the winners please contact the individuals listed in the previous journal for their prizes, yuuike's will be given out as soon as the journal is posted so if you didn't receive it let us know.
Edit 2: Annnnd that's it! The contest is officially over~! All in total we've received an overwhelming number of 145 entries @_@ Thank you to everyone who was interested and helped spread the word! The gallery will now be closed. With the majority of entries submitted by our invited artist our founder has started assembling the book. The 5 winners from this contest will have their art featured somewhere in the art book so look forward to it! Preorders will open around september/october if everything goes well so stay tuned ^_^

Now as for the judging, we've decided to use a slightly different method due to the ginormous number of entries. First all the judges will choose 10 of their favorite pieces from the group gallery folder and then vote for which one will be first place, second place, and runnerups'. Therefore the winners will be announced when this process is over. Thank you everyone for your patience! 

If your deviation is chosen as one of the choices for top 10 we will be checking whether you've posted a journal or not and the other requirements in detail, so make sure you've got everything so your piece won't be eliminated!

Edit 1: Hello everyone! It's only been a month but we've been getting a overwhelming number of entries, thank you to everyone who's interested!! I've talked with the founder and we've decided to give you guys more time as a month is way too rushed. THEREFORE THE DEADLINE HAS BEEN EXTENDED!!! The reason being it will take us a while to assemble the book after getting the official artists' artworks and seeing as the winners will be placed at the back of the book it can be done last, this way we'll give you guys more time. If you'd like to remove your contest entry from the group to add more details/work to it feel free to do so! Just resubmit it once you're ready.

Also we've decided TO INCREASE THE NUMBER OF RUNNER-UPS!!! Once again thank you so much for everyone who's been supporting and interested in this art book! Spread the word~ (:

:icondahrplz::icondahrplz::icondahrplz::icondahrplz::icondahrplz::icondahrplz::icondahrplz:

The contest is finally here! If you were not invited to the artbook don't worry this is your chance to have your winning artwork featured in the Dream in Color charity artbook along with 80+ other amazing artists! Anyone is welcome to join. For more information about the art book check out the group!

:new: free Bullet : yellow star by pastel-paintbrushyThe judges of the contest & what we're looking for free Bullet : yellow star by pastel-paintbrushy::new:
:iconyuuike: - I am interested in the amount of effort and details you put in as well as the story behind the piece~! So if you can try not to rush! I think the most important thing is to draw with a meaningful emotion behind it because it always shows through, so please be yourself and draw with your own unique style. Although it is a contest don't just draw something because you think it's what we want to see! I'll be looking forward to seeing all the beautiful entries <3
:iconvorpheuss:Clever or not, your theme should be apparent in your artwork. I look for artworks that really fulfills their theme. Balance between basics and details is really important as well. Your artwork doesn’t need to be full of intricate details.  As long as your artwork looks well balanced and your theme looks well fulfilled, you've got my eye!
:iconkamaniki: - Quality and clever theme
:iconedenfox:1.Line:the visual path that enables the eye to move within the piece. 2.Shape: areas defined by edges within the piece, whether geometric or organic. 3.Color: hues with their various values and intensities. 4.Depth: perceived distance from the observer, separated in foreground, background, and optionally middle ground 
:iconyamio: - I look for colourful pieces that brings a message. It is not the detail or skill, but the fact that you can make interested in your artwork from just the thumb. So bring me some heartwarming vibrant pieces that makes everyones eyebrows rise! ♥



For any questions regarding this contest please note me,Vorpheuss. Good luck guys!
