We will do ALL 12 months on the calendars for 2 weeks, OUT OF ORDER.

Have fun
We will try to post one of these topics once a day for your enjoyment.

These are the rules:
* Post only your FINAL piece on this thread, based on the topic on the thread.
* RESOLUTION : The image can have any aspect ratio up to 800 x 600
* They can be done on any medium.
* If you wish, you can add a brief text description about your piece.
* Only original compositions. No "tributes" or plagiarizing, unless is it an integral part of the challenge.
* The topics will be posted every day between 10:00 - 12:00 am US EST.
* The artist also has to post total length of time it took (Thanks Clanger for the idea) and program used.
* Only final pieces can be posted on the thread. They must have been done AFTER the topic has been announced.
* Any piece caught breaking the rules will be taken off the thread.
* The topics will be picked at random from the list on this thread
(The author will be given credit). So guys keep them coming.
*You can add multiple entries, but please dont post WIP (Unless you intend to update them). NEW RULE!
*ANOTHER thread to quantify and track WHO has participated the most on these threads.

Good luck

May Day

The idea was first born in Australia when the workers there decided in 1856 to organize a day of complete work stoppage together with meetings and entertainment as a demonstration in favor of the eight-hour day. The first to follow the example of the Australian workers were the Americans.

this is my second image for my 'You're not hardcore' calander ... May

Was mucking around for 4.5 hrs PS wacom - 2 dvds
... thought I would contrast all the flowers and landscapes being painted :twisted: - which I concede are much more appropriate for a calander than all this offal...
