The deviantART Stock Project with Fotolia challenges you to combine one regular Cat, one regular Fruit and one regular Clock into something amazing, funny or incredibly ridiculous.
You must use one each of the specific cats, clocks and fruit provided in the asset pack. Your entry can originate in any medium! These are stock pictures. You can trace them, draw them, photomanipulate them, stack them, cook them or even collage them!
Why three random categories and not ones that "go" together? Because if there wasn't a challenge it wouldn't be a contest and if it didn't require you to be creative it wouldn't be dA! Make us laugh or make us cry—knock our socks off.Official Rules
- A cat, lounging on the beach, enjoying a bowl of fruit salad, while a clock ticks on the wall of a seaside Cantina in the background.
- A larger-than-life pineapple that acts as a home for a cat—complete with a dining table, lounge chair, and a clock on the mantel.
- A cat glancing at a clock because he's running late for his date to ride in a strawberry coach.
You must use at least one cat, one fruit, and one clock from the asset pack. Feel free to include more photos from #StockProject as well or your own images! You can use the images in any medium.
