Challenge Name: 

Inspired by Art Challenge

Challenge Deadline: 

December 20th

Accepted Fandom(s): 

Any and all (including OF)

Accepted Ratings: 

All - no smut

Challenge Details:

  As the name suggests, this challenge is to use works of art (paintings and sculptures) to inspire a piece of fiction. I have 20 selections to chose from ranging from classic oils to Burning Man sculptures and everything in between. 

Rules:

1. You may only change numbers 1 time. (Sorry, there's just not that many to choose from.) If you tell me what you did not enjoy about your first choice and I may be able to make recommendations.

2. You can only submit one entry

3. Entry needs to be on HPFT Archives

4. You may request an artist/sculptor, but I will give you which work to use.

 5. You must site the artwork and its creator somewhere in your post!!! 

For serious. Not kidding.

6. See rule five. You do not need a picture of your prompt. Just site the work.

Rewards:  

First Place: Three reviews of your choice. Possible graphic. Glory 

Second Place: Two reviews of your choice. Maybe a graphic. Fame.

Third Place: One review of your choice. Perhaps a graphic. Honor.

 

I can't wait to see what y'all come up with! Let the inspiration begin!

17- Vivian and Merlin by Gustave Dore

😶

Since it’s Merlin and you aren’t wanting to do fanfic, I won’t count it towards your 1 and only if you need to switch again.

Yes, please, I walked away from using fan fiction months ago.  I plan on staying ob my feet.  May I have another?  Or if we can use elements of the picture and take something from it?  

12?  And still have my back up open? 

 

Also, just a suggestion, perhaps you can PM the art selections?  I know a quick search would do it, but that would be a nice touch. 🙂

Update:   Researched the piece.  I am perfectly fine.  Not writing about no wizard, though.

As I'm a very visual person, this challenge seems to be rigth up my alley. I'll give it a go! :yay:

I've been dying to write a piece based on the Burning Man so if I could have one of their art pieces that would be cool. Otherwise, perhaps #3?

 

Note: Could you please clarify on what's the word limit you're expecting, please?

 

Thank you ^_^

Yay burning man! I really hoped someone would get this one. 

16- Love by Alexander Milov 

Let me know if that works or if you’d like to know #3. 

As far as word limit, I’d say not more than 15,000 words. 

I’ll PM you a good link to use as reference as well.
