Even though the current theme has been extended till Monday night, I'm gonna try to keep on some sort of schedule and get up the next one for all you ravenous artists out there. Special thanks to Afrikaisi for this topic, it's a good one and gives us all LOTS of play space....

Happy Creating!

Post Holiday catch-up

Well, it seems I dropped the ball on posting the next theme on here, instead just putting something up on dA. My apologies to everyone who may have been waiting on an update. The Combination of Mr. Ever being home from playing war, and holiday stuff made my brain flitter off into the realm of egg-nog and snuggles (Great place by the way, I highly recommend a visit).

So, I'm going to extend the current theme till Monday night EST for those of you who are also catching up after the holiday madness. The current theme for those of you who haven't seen it is..

Bump in the Night


There have been some cute submissions already, and some scary ones (Lazor eyez, Loony's cats have them!). I hope more of you get inspired over the weekend to add something to the folder before the next theme is posted.

Happy Creating!

Somewhere in the world it's Friday

I felt a lot of pressure in figuring out what the first theme would be. I wanted something that would interest a lot of people and get us off on a good foot. It is tricky to find something that can be interpreted into so many different styles of art, but not be too abstract in concept.

So, without further delay, our first theme is....

"Treasure"

The Folder will be labeled and made open for submissions right away. Have fun!

The New Big Thing

Hello Friends!

I've been hinting about an group art project for us creative Slothians, and now everything is in place.

I am pleased to announce that KongSlothArts is up on deviantArt and ready for our submissions. If I haven't already told you about this project, let me explain now.

What it is-
KongSlothArts is a group for regulars and friends of the room Sloth on Kongregate.com. Every two weeks the room is given a theme intended to inspire and challenge the creativity of our members. It is a place to showcase our varied talents, admire each other's work, and get positive, constructive feedback.

What it's not- A competition. Although there might be things the group votes on in the future, the main goal of this is just to create for the sake of creating and to have fun.

How it works- Every other Friday, I will post the current theme on this site. Then all members have two weeks to draw, paint, photograph, compose, potato sculpture, make flash videos, write, etc something that pertains to that theme and put it up for the group to see. deviantArt supports most graphic file types, and text, so those will be submitted there. If you are creating music or have video of yourself doing interpretive dance, you'll need to link it under the Topic Blog post here.

How to Join- The dA group is by invite only and you will need a deviantArt account if you plan on uploading pictures. Please send a whisper to
http://www.kongregate.com/accounts/Everlovely/private_messages
and let me know what your account name is on dA so I can send you an invite.

The rest of the specifics for submission are on the KongSlothArts main page.
