IF WE HAVE MORE THAN 45 ENTRIES - NOT ALL ENTRIES WILL MAKE IT TO POLL
A MAXIMUM OF 45 ENTRIES WILL BE ACCEPTED IN THREE CATEGORIES:
CATEGORY 1 - Beginner's category
CATEGORY 2 - Intermediate's category
CATEGORY 3 - Advanced's category
ACCEPTANCE TO POLL WILL BE BASED ON THREE CRITERIA:
1: DID THE ARTIST FOLLOW THE BRIEF? (allowance for creative takes will be made).
2: IS THE PIECE ARTISTICALLY SOUND? (Is the illustration "finished?" - did the artist pay attention to anatomy, perspective, other fundamentals?).
3: IS THIS ILLUSTRATION THE BEST ONE? (reserved for rounds with a large amount of entries).
PLEASE REMEMBER TO POST YOUR FINAL, YOUR THREE REFERENCE PICTURES, AND YOUR REFERENCE LINK, OR YOU WILL BE DISQUALIFIED
Depending on round turn out, the number of accepted entries in a given Category may vary from round to round. For example, if only 5 Advanced entries are made, that leaves EXTRA 10 slots open for Intermediate and Beginner.
Only Advanced Entries will be accepted for the the thumbs on the Queens Roster. If no Advanced entries are available for a round, then it will fall to the Intermediates. If no Intermediate are available, then it shall fall to the Beginners.

The "Marquise" de Sade
Reference links on Sade
Sade's Wikipedia entry
Notes on the Neil Schaeffer Sade biography
Timeline of Sade's life
Sade pictures (though most are from his younger, pre-prison days)
The last one is Man Ray's imagining of Sade, I tossed it in here for fun (though it's closer to what Sade may have looked like in his later life, the period in which I chose to illustrate him)...
Her whipping boy is based in passing on Franco Merli, who has perhaps become the most recognizable face associated with the movie Salo, Pasolini's film interpretation of Sade's 120 Days of Sodom. Though I must admit, the more I worked on the face, the less it looked like Franco...
