With the long summer already underway, the idea of setting up a sketchgroup came along. Share your sketches, comment on others, follow their progress, join the competitions and have a great time! If you want an invite, just contact me with your email amd I'll send one - Erik
Sorry, I joined in a bit late, so my royalty piece is being posted after the deadline- hope that's okay :)! I went with an Arabian nights theme, my favorite ;)! This is my first digital portrait, and I used my webcam photos for reference- haha I wish that could be a reason for the distortion on my face, though!
Thank you all for participating in the first round! Great stuff, that first post will now be what you'll look back upon to see how you've improved throughout the summer on these selfportraits. We decided that everyone are winners, and that we will have a voting poll for the topic for the upcoming weeks, please post in the commentfield to this blogpost with your suggestions and they will be added to the poll that should be up midweek.
The second topic in our challenge is "Merfolk", design yourself as a mermaid or man. Try make it look like yourself!
Deadline: Saturday 5th, I will put up the next weeks competition early that morning as I'm leaving for Annecy
Not happy with this hideous thing :/... I can see the expression went 'flat', it started to get overworked, twas badly lit, and I have to say these 2-mirror set-ups are way more difficult than one. Anyway, I'm not going to get all negative ripping into my own thing, I'm just happy I got to contribute ^_^
In the self-portrait challenge you are to make a portrait of yourself and incorporate the topic somehow into it. Michal chose the starting topic, which will be "Monarch". So in this case you will portray yourself as a monarch, a queen or king, someone ruling a state, country or world.
The winner will be chosen on saturday, and will be selecting the topic for the following week.
Topic: Monarch Start date: 24th may End date: 29th may
