Hello all.

As you may or may not remember, The Chop Shop was founded as a refugee community for Worth1000 members when that site originally hit the buffers. We've continued on for the last couple of years, and it's been great fun.

However, due to ever dwindling submissions it is no longer viable for us to continue posting themes and actively moderating the community.

So, as of now, we're putting the community into hiatus. For the moment it will remain open for anyone to post, and will be moderated from time to time, but we're no longer going to be posting themes etc. and further down the line we may take the decision to close the community. You should not lose any artwork if that happens as Google stores your images in your own storage space, but if you are worried please do save it outwith the Community as soon as possible.

It's been a blast spending time with everyone! We wish you all the best.

We recommend anyone with a interest in friendly, competitive digital art take a look at our new website, Dagger Bay, which has a flourishing community and will soon be launching contests across all mediums.

Bummer but I guess they fact that I'm just seeing this post now is part of the issue. Hope y'all have fun on Dagger Bay. Thanks admins for setting up this community.

+Cristal Reza Yep, that is the Worthians new home (contests should be starting around the end of the month).  And I just thought of something else: this drawing of yours would have fit the "Game Draw" thread as well (when the letters were G and S - Girl Shaving).  :D

In view of the recent sad news and the fact that +Chris Lea's great image got so many +1s I thought it would be a fitting end to the Chop Shop to have that as the final banner. Great work, Chris - see you all on Dagger Bay!

Thanks for all the votes I’m honoured to be the final banner and a sad coincidence I completed this before the passing of this outstanding man. Godspeed on his final journey back to his planet.

David Bowie who I think really is an Alien. In the nicest possible way of course!

Wonderful work, Chris - totally alien and totally recogniseable.

This is an experiment using a figure created and lit in Daz3D then exported to Photoshop and worked on there.

And another fabulous reason not to separate 2D and 3D!

Festive congratulations to +Chris Lea who's awesome Santa scooped most plus ones for our Christmas theme. Santa is resting in the Winner's Enclosure and Chris retains the Community Banner (despite Google's awful crop)!

Congratulations, Chris - and I've improved on Google's chop for the banner.

SuperSanta  -   Xmas

Delivering presents across the whole world in one night, proves Santa really is a super hero.

To all Chop Shoppers have a very merry, happy and safe Christmas and all the very best for the New Year.

Although my clown gained most +1s in that theme I have used +Chris Lea's superbly evil clown as this week's banner - a healthy antidote to Christmas, perhaps? Well done, Chris! And a Happy Christmas to all!

Someone challenge the sketchers in the New Year! :)  First one to post their idea, we have to run with it! Happy New Year! Lets keep this going.  And I challenge all artists to start sketching and posting! I need the push to keep drawing.

Not sure if Alice qualifies for Myths and Legends but I'll put it out.

I would say it has achieved mythic status by now! Lovely work, James.
