Monthly Art Challenge: August 2017 Edition!

Here's the run-down on how it works. Every month, I'll post a set of themes or parameters to follow. URPG members can make art, using any medium, and if it's posted during that month and fits the theme appropriately, they earn cash in addition to the Pokemon they're trying to capture, regardless if it passes or fails. Curators will also earn a bonus if they curate a piece of artwork in a timely manner.

For now, this is only applicable to artists twice per month as a trial period. If it works out, the limit might be removed. We'll see. Curators receive a bonus for all the art they curate, so long as it's in the correct time frame.

Curators, please address the theme when you curate a piece of work to tell the artist if their art applies to the bonus or not. Artists, please use common sense when fulfilling the themes. The art should incorporate one of the themes in an important/meaningful way to qualify for the bonus.

For example, if the theme is the ocean and an artist only draws one seashell sitting in the corner, this does not count for the theme. This goes for colors too—they should have some meaning and be purposeful, not just be there on a whim or by lucky chance. If desired, artists can type out a short paragraph explaining which themes they went for and why they think it fits that month's parameters.

**Note that the monthly theme only applies to capture attempts and not cash.

However, this bonus does count toward your Legend Tracker for both artists and curators.


For Artists:
  • Simple or Easiest Rank – 2k
  • Medium Rank+ - 5k

For Curators:
  • 1k extra per piece
  • Must be curated before 1 week after the month ends

August Prompts

No genre prompt this month as K'sariya is out of town. And because of the lateness of the prompts, this list will extend into September, until Saturday the 9th.

Let's go ham with Water-types this month as well as the powerful nature of water itself. Last year around this time, pockets of my city had no power for four weeks because of storms, so bring those on too! I also recently moved, and life's been a little crazy. Let's include it all!

Applicable themes are:
  • Spectacular storms
  • Weight of water
  • Water-type Pokemon
  • Mania
  • Magic
  • Moving/Relocating

Feel free to post any art within the month of August including one or more of these things to receive the bonus. If you could, please put a [AUG] tag in the thread name or on the art pieces you want to count for that month. Remember, artists can only get the bonus twice. Once we see how this plays out, it may be adjusted.

Got an idea for next month? Share it in the thread!
