As we see in the poll (space-revived.deviantart.com/j…), there is good interest in another contest! So let's discuss some ideas.

tsahel suggested the following:

- galaxies (difficult but spectacular)
- planet system
- nebulas (without planet)
- limit to one or two colors
- include fractals : starfield, nebula or planet texture

And here are a couple of extra ideas I'll add: a DA stock space art contest (make space art using stock from DA), or a terraforming contest.

After a week I'll poll the most prominent suggestions!

And while we are on the topic, you might like to see the results of JenFruzz Outer Space contest: www.deviantart.com/journal/Out…

I like very much the idea of creating stock and then use it for a contest !

I think it would be great to have stock images of space art all in one place. I'd be interested in both contributing to and using such a resource. Just a few ideas for possible sub-folders: star fields, spacecraft & space stations, planets seen from above, planet & moon surfaces, buildings and cities, textures.

Everything should be free to use.

Here's an example star field I have created. It's not too exciting by itself because it's intended to be a background. It's 100% free to use.

Ah, I have now added a 'Stock Resources' folder. Somehow overlooked that!

Thanks! but, um, it doesn't seem to have a "Contribute Art" button.

as an alternative to using DA stock for space art, how about creating the best space art resources? Could be nebulae, planets, starfields, asteroids,... perhaps even space ships or landscape plates for terraspace. Rules: No resources made from other stocks, and they should be posted as non-premium content in the stock gallery.

What do you mean exactly by no ressources made from other stock ? Can I made texture planet from my own photo ? Or nebula / starfield from my own fractals ?

by "from other stock" I meant resources from other people. All should be your own. Hence own fractals, photos etc would be fine.

You could add that to the new 'Stock Resources' folder!

That's also a good one to consider! Thanks for posting! If we went with that, I'd say the next contest should(?) be about making space art with those same resources!

depends on how well this one would go, but why not. The only difficulty I see is how to deal with extra stuff, i.e., painting etc on top of the resources. Images based 100% on resources will have a hard time competing with artworks made from scratch or with just a few stocks.

True, although we could expand the stock available to all past space/sci-fi stock as well. I'd say as long as the piece heavily uses the stock then it would fit the theme. Contestants would need to link to the resources used, of course.
