OK people here is our new contest, sorry for it being late, but for me that is a natural thing it seems.  A number of people volunteered to translate this so perhaps you can find your translations below.  I hope they are accurate.

What awaits us after we die?
Contest ends March 31 2016 (ANY MEDIUM)

In the past year heart has stopped serveral times requiring me to be hospitalized, along with other things that plague my health.  Didn't see any light, or have an out of body experience.  First let me say that am not a Christian nor any other religion,  so I really don't believe in  life after death, but you might.  So what awaits us after that final passing?  Is it we simply turn to dust and fertilize the inside of a coffin or that our ashes serve no more then fertilizer for new life?  Or are we reborn into another life?  Does our soul walk the earth because we have unfinished business?  Do our souls go to another dimension to where it exists with those who died before us? (believe this is called Heaven).  Don't believe in a hell because if there is a place that is more hellish then life in the here and now, am not signing up for it.   You may be religious or not, you do have an opinion.  So draw me a picture, then explain it in the description.  As you know it takes 3 elements to win :iconsharpenededge: contest.

You must have the following elements in place or your work will not be judged!

1. Title must have the following statement at the end: (In the End:   Example.  Title:  what awaits me (In the End)
2. Picture.  Please give me your best art.  
3. Description.  Please describe what you have drawn because sometimes the images do not speak for themselves.  This is a must.  
4. Must have (What Awaits Us Contest @ :iconsharpenededge: )  You make the icon by typing :icon SharpenedEdge: but without the space between icon and SharpenedEdge

1st  prize:  630 pts
2nd prize:   400 pts
3rd prize:   300 pts

All entries will be featured at the close of the contest.  If you wish to contribute to this contest or to help us hold others, please contribute to one of our co-founders or me.  

Any questions please ask because your work will not be judged if the above points are not addressed.

Hmm, what if don't always want to be around, for to be here, and not be remembered, and see that no one remembers you would not be a good thing.  And if there is no family to even remember you one day after you ceased to exist, then what would be the purpose of forever being here?

Ohhhhh... I like this... wonderful concept and I am of the same mind as you philosophically... Like the amazing Carl Sagan once said... ".... "

;) I'll leave it there for it will give away my art idea. :D (Now I wait to get better because man, respect to German viruses... I'm down and out for a while I think)

Is there difference between German Virus, or Asian flue?  Do Virus respect nationality? :)  Darn you made me look up who Carl Sagan.  And I doubt anyone is of the same mind as me, unless they in the crazy house.  Oh Welcome to the group, and forgive dry humor.

Lol, it's just a standard nasty cold virus, upper respiratory. For me they always lead to a stupid chest infection so I'm on antibiotics too atm... so no, it's no where in the area of the Asian Bird flue, if that's what you are referring to. :3 It just after 3 years of living here, this is my first really nasty one and different continents, different strains, etc... and Yay... I hope you liked what you learned about him, hee hee. Lol, dry humor? My hubby and I are always cracking jokes and we love the dry humor. ;) and I suppose my kind of crazy is just mine but I'm defo in the same crazy house, maybe different rooms or floors,  ha ha! Thanks for the welcome too!

Why you move to Germany, peace corps, or Military?  And yes Asian flue.  Hope antibiotics not do to you what they do to me.  It seems am always on one kind or another....

Yea, probably different floors.  And you are welcome.

Oh, there have been bumps here and there but this is my 3rd marriage and as they say in the U.S. where I'm from, 3 is a charm. It's funny but I have come to the point where I expect more of myself and want to make him happy because he goes every day out of my way to make me happy. For me, he is like my childhood dream of prince charming plus. It's hard to explain but the glue of our marriage is laughter... we laugh all the time and have the same dork quirkiness... His crazy fits my crazy. ;) I come from the U.S. My family is still there. As for expectations, well, those had to be rearranged and he meets them above and beyond, which pushes me internally to want to be a better person for him and myself. It's crazy being able to completely and selflessly trust and love someone can do to you. This comes from a lifetime of mistrust, family and other people problems... betrayals, lies.. the works. So yesh, we've been together for 5 years and married for a little over 4 years... 5 in September. :)

three marriages, for your sake sure hope it works out.  I have only had one person that was ever in love with, but they were killed in the same accident as several of her close friends and only one person out of four survived, if you can call it really surviving.  We become close friends at as if we were sisters from a very early age, but then our careers separated us, she went into J pop, and I went into modeling but in different countries, but, we always found a way to be together.  There is a poem on my site, perhaps one day, you might read it, it is called, do you believe in faeries.

anyways, many thanks for talking with me., and am sure will see other work by you pass my computer screen,

That sounds good, I can offer a digital portrait/bust painting (new) to the 3rd place winner.

I am a member, and I participated in contests here before but this time I'm a little too occupied with irl things to work on a contest entry. I still want to contribute because I like this group quite a lot =)
