Y'all need some new variations :P

I've done 2 HTC's, one in 2007 and one in 2011. In 2007 I did one plain variation, in 2011 I did a mix and match combination. Skimming over all 5 variations, I recognize way more themes as being something I've used before than I thought I would lol.

I might just come up with my own list somehow and/or do another piecemeal list, but occasionally coming out with new variations would be a really cool way to keep this feeling fresh for people who keep coming back to it. ^_^

Hello dear 100ThemesChallenge group:
I have written a journal feature to collect many of the pictures for one topic of the 100 themes challenge. I think it is very interesting how diffrent the interpretations and ideas to the first word are: 01. Introduction.

I would really apreciate it, if you show this journal feature with many diffrent artists to all members, if you like :)
100 Themes - Collection: 1. IntroductionThe 100 Themes Challenge is an interesting opportunity to give your imagination a hint. It is about a list of 100 diffrent words and to each one you draw, paint, write, photograph or make a piece of art. Everything what comes to your mind is accepted and there are uncountable diffrent ways to do the challenge.
By now there are many diffrent lists and a few clubs who collect the lists and the art about the challenges. 100ThemeChallenge and 100ThemesChallenge are two of them.
The challenges help to overcome art block and lack of ideas, too.
I always thought it is interesting what the artists here on dA do with the words. One word and so much diffrent solutions! It shows the creative minds and that we are all unique persons with unique feelings and ideas!
My idea to this was to share features about the single words: For every word one feature with lots of diffrent interpretations. That means: 100 Journal-Features to write f

100 Themes - Collection: 1. Introduction
From week to week, I will do this for every single theme of the first challenge (thats the idea)I am a dummy! 

Thank you for taking time, to read my words,
Have a nice day and enjoy the collection :party:

Could someone please accept the deviations to variation 5? I have been waiting for ages and the submissions expire. :/
Jav4 Featured By Owner Oct 12, 2014
I'm going to quit this challenge since the deviations I've submitted to the variation 5 have waited for approval for so long that the submissions have expired two times.
digipokefriend2 Featured By Owner Sep 4, 2014  Student Digital Artist
I apologize because I will be quitting the challenge. Life, School and my own Art are all conflicting with it. I will be removing all my submissions. I may come back to the group and restart. If I do, I will stay with Variation 4.

I just got halfway in Variation 1! 50%! (I'm a busy person so this is a big accomplishment for me lol)…
Quadrasputnik Featured By Owner Jun 15, 2014
Can anyone explain to me what the 100 themes challenge is?
Cup-of-Javo Featured By Owner Jun 15, 2014
In a nutshell, it's a self-imposed project for you, as an artist, to make a work of art for each of the 100 prompts (or "themes" as they're called here) given to you on a list. So basically you get a numbered list of 100 words or phrases, and for each number, you make a piece based on the given word or phrase for that number. For example, if you're on number 63, and the prompt is feathers, you can draw a bird or an angel, or just whatever comes to mind when you think of the word "feathers". :D

The work in art in general can usually be of any media, writing or visual art. :3
