CONTEST EXTENDED A WEEK

Journal Entry: Mon Jan 13, 2014, 11:09 PM
*EDIT* Woohoo!! We have some entries!!
Hello everyone!! It's been a while since I last held a stock challenge for stock artists but in the spirit of the new year here you go.

Theme
What if a mirror isn't all it seems. What if your reflection wants to keep you on your side? What if you are able to climb through a mirror but your reflection keeps standing in front of you, blocking your way? You try to touch the mirror without your reflection touching the same place. Maybe the cold surface isn't the mirror you're touching, but the cold flesh of your doppelganger, pushing back, keeping you on your side.

The theme is 'Through the Mirror'

Entries

What time on the 27th? I didn't think I'd be able to make it into the contest since I didn't have a chance when I was home last from college, but I might depending on what time it closes on the 27th (and time zones willing).

Hello, we also have some entries. :D (Big Grin)  I'm not sure, whether it is acceptable, we have some problems with color.CURSE YOU! 
I think it is necessary to classify it as a beginner, because of bad quality of photos (forgive us for thatPlease ). And sorry for bad English Blush

Ive never made a stock before and was really looking to do this, but I'm not sure that i have anything around the house I could use for the theme =/ I might have to wait till the next challenge. Funds are too low for me to buy something new ^^;

Posting all three entries to hopefully save you time - let me know if I need to seperate them out!

And I guess advanced for level since we've been doing this a while? Granted we do not have advanced technology (yes I'm looking at you camera...) but we've been stocking for years so I guess we can't really count as beginners LOL!
