    ROUND #176 :: Chow Carnivalé
    DESCRIPTION

    Chow Carnivalé


    Masquerade!

    This week we're taking a leaf from Venice and 17th/18th century europe, and holding a masquerade ball!

    You are all invited, but remember, you must come in costume, complete with mask!

    The rules this week are simple. This is a self-portrait round, where you will be portraying yourself in costume for the event. Masks are a requirement, but that does not mean you have to wear them - you can be holding them, have them off to the side if you want to show the face as well, etc.

    Your costume must somehow reflect you, but how it does this is entirely your choice! Maybe it's your favourite colour, or incorporates design elements from your favourite season, or animal, or maybe you're dressing to match your favourite historical period.

    The (hypothetical) ball itself is modern day, but with a historical twist, just like most modern-day masques.

    We look forward to seeing you there!
    ------------

    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?

    --------------------

    SUBMITTING YOUR ENTRY:
    1: You must submit ONE full sized image.
    2: Make sure your name and CHOW # are EASILY READABLE on your entry.
    3: Use the Standard format (Below);

    Chow 176 :: VOTING :: Chow Carnivalé
    PLACE THE IMAGE IN A FRAME WITH YOUR NAME/TOPIC
    SAVE YOUR FILE IN THE FOLLOWING FORMAT:

    Chow##_Nickname
    example: "CHOW#100_Oregano.jpg"

    THE REST IS EASY:
    1: No comments before poll is set. They WILL be deleted with utmost malice and petty grumbling.
    2: Sit back and enjoy the show. BYOPC (Bring your own popcorn)
    3: Good luck to all.


    Please review these helpful reminders if you have not done so already.

    ON GETTING TO POLL
    -------------------------
    NEW ROUND RULE: WIPS PLEASE!
    -------------------------
    SUBMISSION FORMAT REMINDER



    PLEASE REMEMBER TO WRITE YOUR COPYRIGHT INFORMATION UNDER THE IMAGE IN THE FINAL BURNING THREAD SO I DON'T HAVE TO HUNT YOU DOWN LATER!

    ---

    Quick Check: Have You Submitted Your Chow Properly?

    - is it named correctly? (ie, "CHOW#100_Oregano.jpg")
    - has it been uploaded using the attachment editor?
    - have you also uploaded or linked to your wips?
    - have you followed the brief?

    Good luck!

    Hi!

    I took daestwen advice with this one ("your costume must somehow reflect you") and used the gloomy weather outside that influenced my mood. But that helped me (even tough i did the whole thing with the gloves in my hands), this is the period when i am most productive , dark and cold rainy days ... hope it lasts ^^

    My final. The design is based on Dutch costumes, not only because I'm ofcourse from Holland, but also because I spent the last half year researching Dutch culture and art and created a videogame about Holland

    Nice stuff so far!
    Take a look at my series of in-depth critiques, like this one of Salvador Dali's hidden portrait of Lincoln.

    Copyright Info: Amber Alexander, ConceptArt, Characters, Anime/Cartoon, Photoshop

    For this, I wanted to try something new. This was my first attempt at Anime so it was a good learning experience. Part of my heritage is Scottish and I do have natural red hair so to make character "me", I went with a blend of common anime features and traditional Scottish clothing and Celtic designs. Specifially I'm apart of the Scottish Clan Donald, so I used that tartan and crest. The design in the background is also similar to the Celtic tattoo I have going around my left arm.

    Also, when I was in the army, a unit tradition we had was to have a watergun fight the day we all returned from the field so I wanted to throw in some of my army side as well without making it too obvious.
