Hello members of Land of Art, I just want to remind you that we have a policy of participation in which each member must participate a minimum of one challenge per two weeks. Obviously more participation is better but if you don't want to be cut, you must participate at least once per two weeks.

As of yesterday, I removed all of the inactive members. Each member currently on the list should have some kind of points except those that are incredibly new or were on hiatus during the inactivity check. If you are looking at this page and wondering why you can't see the challenges, you have been removed due to inactivity. If you would like to reapply, you can do so HERE or click on the link in the sidebar or under the header.

No matter how much you contribute, it's counts as participation. Whether you are amongst the members aiming for 100% participation or just want to make one or two things here and there. All of it counts. As long as it is within two weeks you are good to go. The only thing I do not count is voting because I have found in the past that members would wait for a voting challenge so that they didn't need to make art. This is an art community, participation comes from making art not voting.

You guys have until about Tuesday December 16th to participation at least once to keep yourself safe.

Any questions? Let me know in the questions.

It's finally coming your way soon.... I've finally decided on a date and have been busily figuring out what challenges I'll be posting and when. As I said I am pre-planning when challenges will be posted and when they will end so that there aren't multiple challenges ending on the same day. There will be some challenges posted on days that other challenges end but that's different right? At the moment, I'm looking for some Christmas Challenges and possibly a New Years Eve/Day challenge so if you have any ideas, please leave them HERE to get some points for suggestion. :)

Hey guys, since I am working Evening shifts (3-11pm) at my job right now because we're so low staff, I thought I would not only post a couple of challenges now that we're literally minutes into phase 7 but I would also post a welcome post. I don't typically do this because... well I usually forget... so I thought I'd do it this time around.

This is the alphabetical phase. Within minutes of me posting this, I'll be posting Request it All, Work at Your Own Pace and Hide and Seek Movies. Starting next week, I will be posting 3 challenges per week. The Hide and Seek challenges don't count in this counting because they run every 4-5 days.

As of this point, the one challenge per two weeks is a go. However, because challenges won't be ending for at least two weeks (minus the Hide and Seek challenge) or more, I'm giving you until March 24th to complete something. Otherwise you will be in danger of being cut from the community. After this date, it will be running every two weeks.

Let the competition begin. Let's have some fun too.

Hello everybody. Have you been itching to start the new phase of Land of Art? Have you been wondering what's been going on in my world to hinder the arrival of Land of Art for almost two whole months? Ahh... that is a while. Well, I didn't have a laptop for about a month of that time so that was one major issue. Also, I've been in the process of writing up all 31 challenges for Phase 7. Psst... I haven't actually completed them all yet but hopefully I can get most of them complete before the phase begins. That's right 31 challenges. I can guarantee that there will be that many challenges.

For those of you that are new or maybe have forgotten what Phase 7 was going to be. For the first time ever in Land of Art history, well at least since I took over in Phase 3, we are going to try out a themed phase. So please, if you like it please voice it throughout the phase and especially in the end of phase questionnaire. It's an Alphabetical Phase + 5 additional challenges. So there will be 26 challenges specific to each letter plus the two Hide and Seek challenges, Work at Your Own Pace, Request it all and Promotion. Hopefully, you guys will enjoy it.

New thing of Phase 7 -- Golden Tickets will last forever from now on. You won't have to use them in each phase. Once you have them, you can use them whenever you'd like. Whether that's in this phase or the next or the next, etc. You don't have any idea what a Golden Ticket is, check it out: HERE. Your Golden Tickets are HERE.

Keep in mind, the activity on this community will be going back to "one challenge per every two weeks" instead of "two challenges per month". You will be in danger of being cut if you do not complete at least one challenge per every two weeks. The first cut will occur one month after the start date that way you guys have time to complete at least one challenge before that moment. I mean obvious doing more challenges is way better but if your kind of short on time, you must complete at least one challenge per two weeks, otherwise you will get a PM from one of your team mods indicating you need to participate. The mods and I have a new plan to stay on top of who is being active so we'll definitely be able to keep up on the "one challenge per two weeks".

Check out your new Teams: Phase 7 Spreadsheet [I forgot to change the setting like usual but I changed it so now anyone can access it]. Or look below the cut. Just in case it was forgotten, starting this phase, I will be joining one team and one team alone. My points go to that team and only that team. Instead of my points going to the team that has the least amount of points. It wasn't really an incentive to want to complete challenges if you know what I mean. This phase I'm starting with Team Pop Art because they've been having issues with participation. Next phase, I'll be on another team and so on.

Without further ado, the phase will begin:

One more thing, I can post two challenges before the phase even begins or I can wait. I'm leaving the decision up to you guys. It would be the Promotion and Request it challenge. Both are more so beginning challenges anyway so I don't see why they couldn't be posted a week early. As I said it's up to you guys. If by Monday Feb 24 at 9pm MST, you guys want the challenges, I'll post them, if not I'll hold off until March 3rd. Please Vote below.

Would you like Promotion and Request It posted early or not?

Yes I want the challenges ASAP
No, I'd rather wait

Excited for Phase 7??

Can you believe that I have been running Land of art since Phase 3? I can hardly believe that we going to beginning Phase 7. It blows my mind. Anyways, I have made some changes for Phase 7. Certain things that benefit me better and hopefully will benefit you as well.

If you are looking at this and noticed that you don't see any challenges and don't have access to your team, I'm sorry to inform you but you have been removed for not participating at all since the phase began.

If you'd like to re-apply, you can do so: HERE.

Phase 6 has finally begun. I have posted two challenges so far. If you ever want to check out which challenges are open, THIS is the place to look. For the most part, I keep it up to date with new challenges and when they are ending. Also, like last phase, a new challenge will be posted every second day. So be on the look out for new challenges. I'm hoping to get a range of challenges this phase. Hopefully, you guys will enjoy them. :D

- If you have any questions that don't pertain to a specific challenge, ask it HERE and I'll give you an answer.

- If you're going on holidays or will be busy for a little while, comment HERE and take a Hiatus.

- If you have a challenge idea that you think would be fun, suggest it HERE and if I use it, you'll get 5 additional points for that challenge.

- If you ever feel that you can't participate anymore and would like to leave, comment HERE and I will remove you. However, you can always come back.

- If you'd like to help me out by making different types of art for me, or tallying, comment HERE and I'll add you to theartmakers.

- Here is the PHASE 6 SPREADSHEET, check out who's on your team. Also, I have added a new element to the Members page that will track the Top Members points. You'll be able to see who has the top points throughout the phase.

Hello everyone, I'm sure you've all been wondering exactly when Phase 6 is going to begin. Well I'm here to tell you that I have decided on a date. I still haven't figured out specifics but I figure that unless I have a starting date, I'm not going to get my butt in gear to start planning. So without further ado. Phase 6 will begin on:


Now typically, as most of you know, phases here are usually only 3 months. That's due to the fact that longer than 3 months always feels like it's dragging on so I usually try to stick with the 3 month mark. However, this would make the phase end on December 1. If the phase ends on December 1 then there would be no Secret Santa and I'm almost 100% sure that most of you would like a Secret Santa... So instead of ending the phase on December 1, I'm going to make it go to December 30th. This way, we get to do a Secret Santa and it doesn't interfere with New Year's Eve/Day. I'm already planning on another new way to do the Secret Santa so hopefully you all like it. :D

So mark it on your calendars that two weeks from today, the new phase will begin.

Did someone direct you to this community? Say, "Hey, I think you'd like Land of Art". Or maybe you found it yourself. You were surfing Livejournal and maybe saw someone's post and wanted to check it out. Well you've come to the right place.

Land of Art is a community that has no specific fandom.

Unlike most challenge communities, you are stuck with a certain fandom or genre. Here, you can use any fandom, celebrity, stock, video game, movie, tv show, you name it, you can use it. As long as the challenge permits that you can use anything, most of them do. Some of them are specific but it's very rare. The only thing that we make specific is the type of Art you can make. Our focus for challenges are on art, we do not do fanfiction. So if you can't write, but like to make art, this is the place for you.

We have four teams: Team Gothic, Team Pop Art, Team Renaissance, and Team Steampunk. The team name, is just a name, you do not need to theme your sigtags or icons to the team name. You can use anything for them.

So if this is something that you would like to be apart of, join our community and join in with all the fun.
