Let's Make Art!

Let's Make Art!

A group for art sets, including home, beauty, & fashion, depending on the theme of the contest. And yes, doll sets are art sets! (I don't know why some ppl think otherwise)
There will be weekly contests, with a wide array of themes. I will try to have unique contests that challenge & inspire you. Suggestions always welcome.
 
Artistic nude is ok, but NO porn-figured femme tubes etc. Goth & gore is not preferred, but if done tastefully, can be very beautiful.
 
I judge based on relevance to theme, detail in work, and/or how well everything is put together (scale, placement, etc). I don't play favourites, I play true to myself & to what I think is a great set that I want to showcase in the top 12. I don't want to moderate a group if I'm just pressured into choosing sets simply b/c it's their turn to "win". That being said, I will try to only pick 1 of a persons sets, even if I like all 3, if there are other sets from members that are deserving of a spotlight ;) It's not easy being a mod! haha
 
I gravitate towards clean, well put together sets that aren’t too busy (1 of the main reasons for making a group was b/c so many mods prefer full, square sets), but please, feel free to express yourself!
 
I won't spam your inbox with relentless advertising for contests.
Also, pls know that it's not my personality to constantly "like" & comment, even though I truly appreciate and like your sets! I become very exhausted if I feel obligated, or I'm made to feel like I owe you something. My contests are for YOU guys, not me! ;P
 
I hope that you enjoy the contests! They are there to simply inspire you, or as just a place to share your OLD/NEW creations :) But PLEASE, if you're not going to read or follow contest rules, don't join this group!

I hope you win many trophies here at Gowns Galore!
How my contests are judged:
1. Based first on the contest theme. For example if the contest theme calls for a Yellow Set, that's what I'll look for first. If the theme calls for a solid yellow skirt, then plaids, stripes, or polka-dots in another color will not do, as it would not be solid yellow. If the theme calls for specific items please be sure to include them in the set, i.e., a hat or odd bag, or a particular style of shoe.
2. Details! Color, style, great use of main theme items, background, layout, complimentary items, and added effects should all work together to make one gorgeous set. I love the set where the artist has paid particular attention to the details that make each set his/her own creative masterpiece. I'm a little OCD in that I like to see shoes paired in sets as opposed to the one going solo! :)
3. Unique Creativity! I check for copied sets! I will try my best NOT to make a copied set a winner. I have been victim to copying and mass item raids and I am not fond of those who choose to play this way. Be your own unique self. Originality is highly valued here! If an original set has 7 items, and your entered set uses 3-7 of those items, you will not be chosen as a winner no matter how beautiful your set is, even if you change the layout or add a few extra items. I consider this copying because the set will not be an original. There are thousands of gorgeous items on Polyvore, please use the search feature to gain your main set items and not from the sets of your poly-friends!
4. You enjoy the contests here and you keep coming back for more! :)
