Title: POW!
Post by: Flisch on June 08, 2009, 12:53:35 pm
Hello fellow artists!

So, everybody likes competitions, huh? And everybody needs practise, right? So, put those two together and you get POW!TM.

POW!TM, actually Practise of the two Weeks, is a bi-weekly competition where you, the artist, have to produce an artwork from reference. That means you will get a photo from me, which you have to copy as good as you can using only your skills (and the appropriate drawing tools). Once the deadline is over I will set up a poll, where everyone can vote their favourite. The winner will then send me a PM with the photo for the next competition.

Rules for POW!TM:

But now for your first challenge:

Prepare for your ultimate Awwwwww... moment!

POW #1 - Hamster Enjoys Broccoli!

Only a few days left!

Edit: I was actually working on it too, but I don't know if I can finish it until the end of the week. Here is my progress so far:

Yeah, what Flisch posted looks like a broken broom.

Oh, I did indeed try this, but like Puts said, it's the damn broccoli.

Well then, I think pushing the deadline to next sunday would be good, so the new deadline is June 28th. :P

While Veraal's entry was a good comedic entry, you people voting for him are making my palm and face unite in a cowering hug.
