Hey everyone!  It's almost Halloween which is totally my favorite holiday so I figured it was high time for a new challenge.  

Theme: Anything and everything to do with Halloween, Samhain, Day of the Dead, etc.  Use your imagination!  
Deadline: Can be submitted anytime before or on November 5th
- Please submit to the Contest and challenges folder, entries not put in here will not count!
- Must be new art, if it's from last year or something, you will be disqualified
- Any medium is absolutely fine
- It does not necessarily HAVE to be mythology related, things like the headless horseman and werewolves are allowed.  The more creative, the better.
- Nudity is allowed, but must be tasteful.
- One entry per person, please!
- 1st place will receive a piece of digital art drawn by me and a random piece of handmade jewelry also made by me.
(unfortunately we're too poor to give away anything other than art and journal features, but hey, have fun!)
- Assuming there's more than 10 entries, our top ten  favorites will be featured in the journal posting the winner.  

- Since I do not have the ability to post polls in this group, voting will be done through notes.  I'll post more about that when we get there.

All right!  Get to it!  If there's any questions feel free to ask.

The Rules

General Rules
1) All join applications are automatically accepted, however all submissions must be approved just to make sure they adhere to the rules. Don't worry, we won't decline something because we don't like it, only because it's violating the rules in some way or put into the wrong category.

2) Any art medium is acceptable, any at all. Each medium has its own category in our gallery and we ask that you please submit it to the proper folder. You may not submit to the featured folder, that is reserved for contest/weekly challenge winners. You also may not submit something that is not for the bi-weekly challenge or any other contest into its respective folder. (Folders and what goes where is listed below)

3) ALL Fictional mythology (from fandoms or your own OCs, whatever) MUST go in the fictional section reguardless of the medium.

4) In order for your art to be accepted it must be inspired in some way by any mythology or culture (ex: Greek, Egyptian, Sumerian, Norse...) or ancient religion (no modern religions please, or there is too much drama) Also Anyone who posts art that is offensive to any faith (whether in the art itself or the description) will be removed from the group without warning. We will not judge art on quality because, as artists, we understand different people have different levels of ability. But please, do not submit low effort art. You should be proud of your work and the time you put into it.

5) ALL art submitted must be drawn/made by you - no exceptions. If you use stock for a photomanipulation, as a pose reference, etc - it MUST be credited in the description. The same goes for any other resource image, such as a doll base for a pixel doll.

6) Mature content is allowed, but it must be tasteful. In other words, nudity/gore is fine, but we don't want pornography or a bad horror movie. It must also be properly labeled as mature, if this is not done - the art will not be accepted.

7)You may submit a maximum of 5 pieces of art per day.

Gallery Folder Descriptions
