The Creative Coalition

The Creative Coalition

Welcome to the Creative Coalition - an art-based group. All contests are no limit, 1 week and must be new sets..unless otherwise directed! :)
 
This is a group for those of us who find solace in creativity. We are creative, open-minded and support one another. No submission will be rejected unless it is hateful or a blatant copy. So, here's a bit about the group in a nutshell...
1. Preferred Submissions: Art sets, including dolls, abstracts, interiors/exteriors, collage, etc. as opposed to strictly editorial fashion sets but as stated above no submission will be rejected.
 
2. Contests will be held - some judged by moderators and some will be up for group vote.
 
3. Kindness and encouragement for everyone. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
 
If you have any questions please PM me!

Haunting

Haunting

Group is on hiatus at the moment. Will be back creating contests when I have the time.
 
haunting [ˈhɔːntɪŋ]
adj
1. (of memories) poignant or persistent
2. poignantly sentimental; enchantingly or eerily evocative
 
Submit any kind of set to this group, but remember the definition of haunting!
 
This group will have regular contests! Contest themes will be classically haunting! If you want to suggest a haunting contest topic send me a message and I will put the topic on the list!
 
Please note: Regularly creating haunting sets is required for getting invited / getting your application approved! from now on, if you do not create haunting sets your application will not be approved. If you have not made haunting art before but still want to join this team, make a haunting set before applying!
 
Also, sets blatantly not fitting the haunting theme will be removed from the group. But remember, dark does not always equal haunting and light can be haunting too!

Through the Eyes of A Child

Through the Eyes of A Child

Do you remember when your were a child and the world was a great big marvelous mystery. Everything was strange new, and grand. There were so many things that simply brought you awe. Do you see that same awe and wonder today in children around you? Because I do.
 
There is this preciousness that all children have, something that really needs to be treasured. Because to them, the world truly is a great and wonderful place, full of excitement, mystery, wonder, and a special magic that only they can find.
 
The goal of this group, is to create sets that show the world as a child would see it. Because of this, please keep it appropriate to all ages, especially little kids, as this group is dedicated to the wonder of children.
 
Art only please, and make sure to show the world through the eyes of a child.
