    Teen Challenge #39: Themed Self Portrait

    G'day you sexy bunch,

    Participation was lacking in the last challenge, so I was saving this topic until number 40 but decided to unleash it now.

    The Rules:
    Anyone ages 13-19 may submit an entry at any time before the deadline. Please host your image on a remote image-hosting site instead of uploading it to the CA server. This makes it much easier to transfer it to the poll thread.

    The Topic:
    Themed Self Portrait, create a self portrait involving a theme, love, 1960's, Renaissance, kaiwaii, emo if you wish...

    Please add a small description or storyline. We don't want a five page essay but make it nice, brief, and to the point. Especially if there is something in your design which needs explaining. PLEASE STATE WHAT THEME YOUR SP IS BASED ON.

    Add a border around your image with your name and the topic, like they do with the other of the week challenges.

    The Deadline:
    Wenesday, December 21st at midnight PST
    Two weeks. Going to unleash all the skills in the arsenal!

    Maybe this topic will help bring people in, maybe not. We'll have to see. I didn't participate with the last one and others because i was occupied with my thread. But now that things have slowed down(almost even stopped) you can count me in

    I'm not going to make any promises about participating as I've slacked off on the last two, but I was about to do few self-portraits again anyway. I too think it would be cool to see what everyone looks like.

    Hey I'm definitely in, well this pic is now a pic of me and the people I'm living with but I will cut it down to just me for this contest (that was the way it started then I got carried away and thought it would be a nice idea for a christmas card anyway.)

    Me as a junky/degenerate-type. I only chose this theme because I wanted to make the big, dark bags around my eyes. I like painting colorful faces.

    EDIT: I still might change it. I wanted to add a better background and I forgot to add some dirt and stuff to the shirt, but just in case I don't get around to it, here it is framed and otherwise complete.

    I think I am going to participate in this one, I should have time. Never done one of these competitions so my question to you is if it is okay to render it with pencil (it wont be a countour or doodle, ill make sure it is fully rendered), as I still have not attuned myself to photoshop and with Paints I wont be able to make it detailed enough to be distinguishable as me.
    Although that question sort of turned into an explanation...yea...the question is; Can I use pencil?

    I'm pretty sure pencil is alright. I'm doing mine in pencil first, then I'll try painting it in photoshop, or doing a grayscale. But if it doesn't turn out like I thought it would, I'll probably just submit the pencil.

    I actually don't do drugs. At all. I'm 18 and I've never even been drunk (I didn't mean for that to sound so self-righteous). That said, I'm sure more than one would be fine as long as they're not identical.

    On a side note, my art teacher saw me working on that today... I had some explaining to do.

    Great portrait, Blaz! Love the pirate theme.


    Is this due on Wednesday, the 19th, or Friday, the 21st?

    I will turn 20 next summer so i will try to get in every teen challenges until then

    Teen Challenge #39: Themed Self Portrait

    The theme for my selfportrait is "mechanical human being"

    i kinda went to this flaming look because i actually painted my hair yellow a few weeks ago.

    this was penciled in front of the mirror then photoshoped over the lines. my right eye has a locomotive mechanism wich allows it to travel around that opened part of my face eheh guess thats it!

    Good point. Deadline clarification please. I've told people they had until the 21st. I don't want them to think I'm an a55hole for giving them bogus information.
