hereisanoop: I have a doubt now... do we need to add our photograph in sbs? ( 5 years and 1798 days ago )
Contest Moderator: @hereisanoop: good question; think it will be a good idea to add one as an extra step. Added it too the contest descriotion. ( 5 years and 1798 days ago )
ikrumon: This will be the greatest contest. ( 5 years and 1798 days ago )
MrsCooper: Can we include paintings? ( 5 years and 1798 days ago )
Contest Moderator: @MrsCooper: Traditional paintings are allowed ( 5 years and 1798 days ago )
jawshoewhah: MRsCooper: any medium that is considered traditional (pencil, charcol, oils, watercolors, air brush, even pudding is fair to enter. Easier thing to remember is ifyou made it with a digital computer program, you can't enter it. I, myself, encourage people to enter more unique and not so commonly used mediums, especially oils. ( 5 years and 1798 days ago )
jawshoewhah: This is also something not so comonly known and Mods, take a note, for drawing contest specifics could use an edit: Although it's not mentioned in the specific drawing guidelines, you can make some basic corrections like crop, contrast adjustment, arbitrary rotation and healing brush (only to remove dust from scans) The object is to present your art so it resembles the original the best, and best presentable. It's probably not a good idea to do any more major editing than that. Drawing contest editing shoud be strictly for best presentation but don't hesitate to make a contrast adjustment if you think itwould look better. ( 5 years and 1798 days ago )
jawshoewhah: BTW, my original idea for this theme was to allow the omission of a source image (since it's safe to say your own photo is probably copyright free) and let people guess who you are, based on your skills. I'm just not too crazy about the being less anonymous factor. ( 5 years and 1798 days ago )
iquraishi: one of the toughest thing drawing and painting is a self-portrait.. I guess no one can deny it.. but this is cool.. I'm just waiting for the entries from my friends.. joshua, aqiil, vibeke, anna, nisha, nasir, sophia, erica and alot others.. Good luck everybody.. this will be the first time I'll be trying my self portrait.. so good luck to me as well.. ( 5 years and 1797 days ago )
