Prompt Challenge #30 -- Fireworks

Sun Jul 5, 2015, 2:00 AM by Mtn-Man:iconmtn-man:

New Challenge!

This week's new prompt is Fireworks ! and I'm not talking about the ones most of us saw yesterday either. I'm talking about those times in life that are so special, moving, and momentous that it was like you were seeing Fireworks for the first time. Maybe something like your first kiss, or graduating school. Things that move and touched you, maybe it was the first friend you made, or buying your first car. Things of that nature where you stood back to look on as you "oohed and aahed" at the beauty of the moment. 

Yeah, that's right, threw you for a loop huh? Being as this is such a broad and vague topic I think it only fitting that I toss my hat into the prize pool as you can see below. Also with the vague nature of this prompt, the deadline is possible to change, if I can get the other admins permission to kinda hi-jack the month of July in order to due so. 

So there you have it, you now have two weeks* to create an artwork that fits this prompt in an original and meaningful way. Are you willing to take on the challenge? :la:

Deadline: Sturday July 19 at 11:59 PM GMT.*(See the countdown on our front page)


  • Only group members or admins may participate.

  • Each member can submit up to two entries, but you can only win one time.

  • Any art medium is allowed.
  • Contest entries must have been created specifically for this prompt. Only artworks created after Sunday, July 5th will be accepted.

  • In the artwork description, please make sure to include a brief explanation of how your artwork fits the prompt and state that your entry is for Rising-Artists’ prompt challenge.


Any admins who do not participate in the challenge will judge based on the following criteria:

  • Creativity and originality (25%)

  • Technique and skill (25%)

  • Impact (25%)

  • Use of Theme (25%)


We’re always in need of more prizes, so please let us know if you can contribute! Prizes can include points, features, art requests, free commissions, llamas, etc. :D

I'm just a drunk with a Pen and a pad. I would like to think of myself as a comic artist, but that would be insulting to Actual comic artist.

I do draw a lot of comics, and it is my main artistic focus, but alas, I am a Terrible writer. So some of the story have a good premise but lack in fundamental story building. As such, I abandon most of them only several pages in... But I'll finish one yet damn you!

I also like to paint, I dabble in photography, and activities include fishing, shooting, spelunking, rock climbing, canyoneering, Bowling, and all around public drunkenness.

If you have any questions or need to reach me, feel free to drop me a line. I love when my message box get full, or if anything else you can try finding me here #Gotterdammerung
