edited February 2016 in Freebies

This month, break out your deerstalkers and pipes.  It's not only emphasis on the men, but with a bit of a twist...the most famous of sleuths, be it the novels, classic movies or modern television interpretations would all make good starting points.  Just remember, it is about the guys this time around.

"EleMENtary, my dear Watson!"

First point, the rules.  Standard rules apply, find them here.

Second point, this month the emphasis is toward men.  That doesn't mean there can't be females in the entry, but the focus should be on the males.

Third point is the prizes...

First Place: $15 store credit from DAZ3D

Second Place: $12 store credit from DAZ3D

Third Place: $8 store credit from DAZ3D

The contest ends on the 29th. (Yep, that's right there is an extra day in February, this year, it's Leap Year.)

Of course, the most important thing, have fun.

    I gotta say I get more out of this contest than I give!  I am so inspired by everyone's creativity.  I love how everyone's interpretation of each month's theme is so unique.  I think the fact that this contest confines us to  the use of freebies really makes us push our skills, our imagination, and often the freebies themselves beyond their limits! wink
