Ok, so the more I got thinking about it, the more I thought the prize could be a little higher.
So, now what I propose is making the monthly prize a GiftCard to Aboveground Art Supplies for 20$!
Utama is pitching in 10$ for each contest, and I'm going to chip in the other 10$, bringing it to a full 20$. I understand what its like being a student (ya know with no extra moneys to spend), so I figured this would make it easier on you guys .
Plus, as you are post secondary students, you get 10% OFF if you show a student card (so its like a 22$ gift card ><). But make sure to bring your card every time!
I will also add some more references I have from the last two posters today, just so you guys have some more to work with !
Also, I forgot to mention where you can post your finals....You can post them either to utamastudios.deviantart.com or to the forums in the Artist Alley thread under Monthly Art Contest (Sept-Oct.)
Now Get Drawing !!!!!!
