POW!
« 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:
  • You may not cut out parts and put it onto your artwork.
  • You may not paint over the photo.
  • You may not use the photo as a background to get the proportions right.
  • You cannot lose! You will gain practise, even if you don't win!

But now for your first challenge:

Prepare for your ultimate Awwwwww... moment!

POW #1 - Hamster Enjoys Broccoli!



Isn't it adowable? :3

Deadline: June 21st

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:


Also not many people have entered yet, should I push the deadline to next sunday? :-\

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.

Some people here have broken sarcasm detectors. Too bad my broken sarcasm detector is broken.

You don't really want me to continue with this, right?
