April, 2016: Guardian at the Gate
1 Attachment(s)
Hi all...

Sorry for the absence, but the contest is back! Been a hectic couple months for me... we're about to launch a new site for the Gnomon Workshop, had to prep for an event in Melbourne, the Gnomon School is undergoing a big expansion, perhaps too many balls in the air! Excuses... But again, sorry that I disappeared from here for a bit. Oi.

April's theme: Guardian at the Gate

This month's contest is to illustrate a Guardian defending an entry way, or gate... The theme is open to any genre, be it fantasy, historical, sci-fi, modern, etc.

Note: Contest Prizes are changing from here on out... Reason being is that with the launch of the new site we will be phasing out DVDs as we switch to a streaming / subscription only library.

1st place: One Year Subscription to the Gnomon Workshop Library
2nd place: Six months
3rd place: Three months
4th place: One month

For those who already have subscriptions, we will be adding time to your account. Meaning that if you have seven months left on an annual subscription, for example, and you won third place, we would add three months so that you would have ten months left. Hope that made sense... :P

Good Luck!

Edit: Winners Announced!

I'd like to get my painting in the running for this month's theme. I wasn't able to get the image completed before the deadline had already closed on a similar theme a few months ago. Good luck to everyone. I'm glad to see that the contest is back, it serves as a great incentive and inspiration for all.

Perhaps the most iconic 'gate guardian' I have ever read of is the North Wind. [From George MacDonald's 'At the Back of the North Wind']. Her greatest task, guarding one of the gates of heaven that leads to eternal joy, is also her greatest sorrow. She cannot have even one glimpse of the gate , for the gate is at her back, let alone see the land of delight that she guards the passage to.

Here is my submission. The scanner was down, had to take a photo. Not the best resolution. Hope you like it.

Teslapunk, nice! I love the detail and stained-glass look.

My submission for this month. A tough opponent to pass through! I may find time to update my submission if this month contest won't close soon.
