_________________________________________________

Surrealism

The task: Surrealism
The subject: Torment

Your goal for this contest is to create a feeling of torment through surrealism. You should push the boundaries of whats real and whats not by stretching your imagination beyond your comfort zone.

Definition:

Torment: n.
1. Great physical pain or mental anguish.
2. A source of harassment, annoyance, or pain.
3. The torture inflicted on prisoners under interrogation.

Surrealism is an artistic, cultural and intellectual movement oriented toward the liberation of the mind by emphasizing the critical and imaginative faculties of the "unconscious mind" and the attainment of a dream-like state different from, "more than", and ultimately "truer" than everyday reality: the "sur-real", or "more than real" (wiki).

Example of Surrealism: Salvador Dali, Joan Miro, Giorgio de Chirico and Yves Tanguy

Requirements

•You will be working alone for this contest; no teams.

•You may do more than one, but they will be judged as separate submissions and you may only have one in the top three.

•Entries must be suitable for a PG-13 audience meaning no porn or extreme violence.

•Previously posted or old artwork will not be allowed.

•Entries may be in any media: pencil, ink, computer graphics, paint, etc... However, the file size must not exceed 400kb size limit.

•Moderators reserve the right to disqualify any entry if it does not meet the theme requirements and/or if it violates any of the rules.

Deadline

There is some serious Beksinski potential in this one.

So wait, does it HAVE to be absolutely surreal, or can it be really grungy/emo? I dunno if I should be confused about this at all, but you can never be too safe.

I'm joining, by the way.

My comfort zone is VERY BIG. So I doubt I'll go outside it. But hell. I'll try it too.

Where's shadowstarre when you need here??

Considering my imagine is quite lacking in my art, this could really be a good chance to work on it; considering I don't procrastinate again...

Great idea!!
