I am posting this as an additional entry, as I find it a weeee distracting to read through comments/completed challenges!

This is Part One (for me!) as the artwork will soon follow <3

Feedback is loveeee. <3


Writing and Art Challenge!

The prompt is: snow. Write something and design a piece of artwork to go with it. You have until Saturday night. :) Have fun and be creative!! :D


I want to focus on THREE colors for this art challenge:


You can use stock photography and make it your own (please credit where you found the image, should you do this), or take a brand new pic and use those three colors combined. OOOOORRR you can start from scratch, a cap, a saved pic, a saved video clip, etc. and change it to fit the simple color scheme. 

I won't segregate to one fandom, or the lack thereof - but choose the one thing (person, movie, show, house, car, etc.) you enjoy the most and twist it to meet the "requirements." :D It can be a wallpaper, an avatar (try to do more then one! we wanna see some goodies!), and all those other sizes that need not be explained any further... ;)

I very much look forward to this, as it is fairly simple and one of my personal favorites to see completed! If anyone has a question or problem, reply here and let Angie and I know! If no one has any problems, this challenge will need to be completed by Thursday (what a coinkidink!) - -


Have fun everyone! ::smiles!::

First Writing Challenge!!

A relatively rule-less one. Just center it on the theme or idea of "a breath away." It can be fiction, non-fiction, fanfiction, poetry, song lyrics...whatever you choose. :D Good luck! You have til Saturday to finish!


Well ladies and gents... Angie and I have officially put our brains together and THIS is what we've come up with:

This community is going to be used for not only the art/writing/etc. it was originally planned for... but now for Challenges amongst all of us. Each day (or every other, as we know ya'll are busy most days) there will be a challenge posted by either Angie or myself and anyone can take this, thus making it their own. But it will follow a few simple steps:

Part 1:

The Ficlet portion.... any story, fandom, or orginial creation of your own - whether or not there are word limits, that will vary with each challenge, but make it what you will! However, there is ONE very important NO NO for all works of fiction: No, abosolutely NO kinds or hints of incest or the likes of said subject. Also, should you write smut (and we don't mind that at all [wink]) please be sure to mark your work CLEARLY and use all disclaimers so everyone knows where you are going.

Part 2: 

The Art portion....any kind of avatars, banners, wallpapers, etc. that you can create! Make it your own....make it awesome!  There aren't many rules to be said about art, other then no PORN whatsoever. If we wanted to see that, we could go to "those" sites. :) Not to mention, there are some close friends who aren't old enough to view just yet. So please, excite us with your talents - just don't excite us too much! ;)

Part 3: 

The Finale portion...Art AND Fiction works TOGETHER! If you create a wonderful, creepy, badass story....we want you to create a wonderful, creepy, badass art banner/poster/avatar (or all three!) that represents it! Putting both sides of your creativity brain together is what makes THIS world go 'round, and we would love nothing more then to witness this baby spin! 

*These steps are to be done ONE at a time - not all at once, unless you're a monster with that capability!*
* Also...as far as time limits go for these challenges, for all written fanfiction/nonfiction/regular good ole fiction and all artwork, it will be three days from the date the challenge is posted. For the combo (Fiction with its representing art), the time allotted will be a week from the date posted. :)  *


Any and all questions, please respond to this post. If you are curious about something we haven't mentioned, please let us know. If there is something you don't like or makes you feel uncomfortable, again - let us know! We're friendly, and we're here to see the talent hidden just beneath the surface of each and every one of us! 

Now, enough of me talking.....what have YOU got to say?



Welcome to colorofthewind. If you're here, it's probably because you're an artist of some kind--be it a painter, a writer, a dancer, a singer, or even a dreamer. Welcome. I hope to make this a nice, comfy place where we can get to know each other and share in one another's dreams and successes and even the failures. You see, deep down we're all artists--even if we don't want to admit it.

We all have hopes and dreams we wish to achieve, and most of us struggle with them for years, often getting stuck because we don't know how to go about the process of attaining them. But I think people have a much greater chance of success if they don't try to go it alone.

And that's where this community comes in. Please, share yourselves, your stories, your art, your words or pictures or thoughts of inspiration. What keeps you going as an artist? What gives you hope? Who are you? Discussion of anything that relates to art of any kind--visual, written, musical or any other form is welcome here. Please, pull up a chair and join us.
