The Rules
+++++++
Upvote and Resteem this post
Make some art (max two entries per person and please new art inspired by this contest or at least not already posted on steemit)
Make a post of your own for your entry (add artexplosion in the tags) and please explain your medium! We sometimes are not sure if the image we are looking at is photo manipulation/painting etc!
Link it here in the comments obviously so I can find it.
Do this before the post pays out!
We'll be choosing the winners based on whatever tickles and touches us the most!
This is not a requirement but it would be a nice gesture to view the other entries and upvote them if you like so we can support each other and pass this on to any artists or friends you think may be interested :)
I can't wait to see what you create!

Thank you!

Hi Julia! I'm following you and I've upvoted this post...but I have no idea when "Do this before the post pays out!" refers to - meep! What's the timeline on that, do you know? Clueless! Jay x

·

Every post pays out after 7 days this one is finished next Tuesday. To find out when a post pays out click the amount on the payout and a little menu will drop down saying this post pays out in X days. I hope that helps :)

·
·

Thank you, Julia - that really does help! I've been away so long I feel like a newbie all over again

Love this theme and all the submissions so far. Some creative work! Here is my submission for the week: Say hello to Dr. Insect Monster https://steemit.com/art/@yogjoshi/i-made-a-painting-insect-god-monster

·

Thanks I'll go check your post :)

·
·

Nice, cool concept! I'm going to post my demon warrior tomorrow. Thanks for running this cool contest ✌

Hey this is right up my alley! I will definitely be participating this week. I love monster art :)

·

Excellent! And I just saw your wifes demon face, I somehow missed it when she posted :/ one of those would probably make an excellent entry as well?

·
·

Nice theme, I will definitely join this time. And I invite any failed attempts to create a "beautiful" monster to join my Ugly Art Contest (I think a non competitive and fun ad-on to this contest this week ;) Have a great day @juliakponsford!

It closes in about two hours so if you want to add you still have time but it looks good like this :)

I have more like 10 hours to go on this project still :( I checked when the post was going to payout and there was no way I could finish by then. But hey, this is still an entry! Love - Carl
