Results of the Autumn Alliance Contest!

Journal Entry: Thu Dec 6, 2012, 11:22 AM


:wave: Hello my beautiful Allies! It's time to announce the winners of our Autumn Alliance Contest! :la:


:iconlit-visual-alliance:

What is the Alliance, you ask?

The Alliance is a project group intended to encourage visual and literary artists to work together. I've felt for some time that the 
dA Literature Community can at times be somewhat insular - to its detriment. We in the Lit Community are also sometimes prone to griping 
about the lack of exposure our work receives when compared to that of visual artists. So in the spirit of ^thorns brilliant 
Complaint Challenge I thought I would try to do something about that. And so the Alliance was born!


Your judges: :iconladyofgaerdon: :iconazizriandaoxrak: :iconevlydia:


We didn't have an extraordinary amount of entries, but the entries we did receive were extraordinary. 
We had a tough time choosing the winners, but choose we did. And here they are. :)




In First Place

based on 

 
moth 5 by LialiaD-stock
 
 
:iconfineevehelp1::iconfineevehelp2::iconfineevehelp3:

The judges agreed that the author really 
took the original photo and made the idea their own, 
wringing every last ounce of imagery and inspiration 
and weaving it into the poem.



In Second Place

based on

:iconfineevehelp1::iconfineevehelp2::iconfineevehelp3:  

The judges felt that this image was very evocative
of the inspiring poem, had a similar feel,
 and that the influence of the 
poem was readily apparent.



:iconfineevehelp1::iconfineevehelp2::iconfineevehelp3: 

The judges were impressed with how well the author
interpreted the inspiring image, especially
in a fixed form.

The judges loved the originality in form and style
in this image, and how it captured the dark 
atmosphere of the inspiring poem.



Our other entries were also fantastic! And so we shall feature them here as well. :aww:

Alive by AeternusVotum

Hello, Autumn.                              'Hello, Autumn.'
Once upon an autumn night, I felt a soft, hissing breeze, tangling the hair around my cheeks.
I heard soft splashing rain as it fell on my eyelashes, creating small beads that reflected light of the distant stars.
I saw flame-colored leaves deserting their branches as they covered the wet ground like a child's cluttered toys. As I looked at the now-bare trees, hunched under grey clouds that blocked the moonlight from reaching earth; I was reminded of obnoxious ghosts--trapped souls begging for mercy with their screams.
And as the rain kept pouring, emptying the black sky, I was reminded of summer times on a rooftop's broken ledge. I would pretend that the drops on my forehead were salty sea-water; that the wet mud was hot sand and as I let my memories take over, falling leaves would sw

:iconfineevehelp1::iconfineevehelp2::iconfineevehelp3:   

This piece has such a wonderful fall feeling. 
The original prose piece obviously 
inspired the artist greatly.



Autumn SorrowStill dark water flows by, dotted by autumn leaves. The orange has faded, now, wilted, turned brown as the season has passed. Trees stretch their dark, naked arms towards the sky, praying for sunlight, for warmth, for life. But their prayers will go unheeded for months to come as snow and frost cover all in a thick, cold, soft blanket. The world stands at Winter's door.
Silent steps descend the stairs, the sound hidden by the mournful singing of the small river. Naked feet, red with cold, step on grey stone painted with frost. Dead, brown grass crunches and breaks as the person, dressed in robes of grey, kneels before the wailing statue by the river.
Mourning grey. That is what the color is called, the one the person's robes are. They cover everything but hands, face and feet, rag-like and torn. They cannot hide the shaking shoulders as the mourner prays to the statue, the grey stone frozen in grief, both hands covering the face.
Naked feet, red with cold, step silently onto the stone.

Autumn sorrow by AncientKing
:iconfineevehelp1::iconfineevehelp2::iconfineevehelp3:   

The whimsical, fantasy style 
of the drawing is lovely; much of the 
poem made it into the image, while the artist 
still made it her own interpretation.

The artist took inspiration from both 
a visual and a literature deviation 
to create this vibrant image.




Thank you so much to everyone who entered! We are thrilled to see our members inspired by one another and hope that you'll continue to create inspired art 
and submit it to our featured folder. Our Winter Contest will be announced in a few days! :eager:

Until next time...
