If you're looking for ideas, or would like to enter an art contest, the DeviantART ArtRage group has regular monthly contests! We'd love to see you submit something over there.

The basic rules are that it must be uploaded during that month, it must use ArtRage, and that it must relate to the theme. You can enter two paintings a month, and you can swap them out if you do a better one later. And you can use any edition of ArtRage (including the iPhone and the free Demo).

(Also, it should be your own work, and any heavily used references or stock sources credited).

To enter, you need to:

  1. Have a DeviantART account
  2. Join the artrage.deviantart.com group
  3. Make some art (with ArtRage)
  4. Upload it to your account
  5. Submit it to the group
