I always ask for further deadlines but this time I really have a feeling that this contest lasted too little.
Is there any chance of extending? I really liked the theme.

Sadly for you, the members don't agree to have an extension. I do 2-3 contests each year, not always the same type. You can watch the group or me to keep track of the contests :)

I have an idea for a concept but I'm not entirely sure if it fits the theme. My idea includes the usage of the northern lights (aurora borealis) as the backdrop. Now it's not strictly a solar flare on the surface of the sun, but the phenomenon is caused by solar winds from the flares hitting Earth's magnetosphere. It's a bit of a stretch, but if this would be acceptable for the competition, I will progress it and submit an entry

Yes, it's acceptable. My contest are always "lets have fun". And the theme is only here to trigger some ideas. If the theme triggered the idea of aurora borealis, it's totally fine! (And in a way, it's also to avoid somebody to just drop the first deviation they have in their gallery! :XD:)

Thanks! Also I want to ask, Can I paint my entry on canvas, snd make a story to go with it as well?


I tend to write really long stories, and I do not wish to waste any of your time, so what would be the word/page limit?
Reply
:iconstygma:
Stygma Featured By Owner Jul 11, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Max 10 pages maybe? Around 10 000 words?

Not really. I judge on efforts and originality, so 3 lines might not be considered. And a good story is better than a long story! :D
