    Hello & Welcome to the Dynamic Energy Challenge - Dynamic Wacky Self Portraits!

    Open to everyone and all levels of skill - have fun pushing the levels of Dynamic energy in your art! Submitting WIPs and sharing constructive crits is encouraged!

    Please read the brief below!

    Characters:

    Theme:
    I think you all understand how self portraits work - but this time lets do them dynamically! Have fun making wacky faces or think of creative ways to draw an energetic pic of yourself!

    The only restrictions are:
    • 1 final entry per person (can include up to 3 self portraits but must be laid out as a unified image).
    • This challenge is restricted to non-violent dynamic situations.
    • Have awesome fun!

    ------------------------
    Deadline - 16th October 2010
    ------------------------

    Please feel free to join in anytime - the aim is to have fun!

    After the deadline there will be a Poll-thread containing all the final entries that will run for 4 days so everyone can vote for their favourite.

    Feel free to use any media or art style - all I ask is that you keep it clean thanks! (no obscene stuff etc - you know the drill )
    ------------------------

    List of entrants (updated as people join)

    • The7Artist7

    Hello. I decided to give this a try. I don't know if this image qualifies or not, the work in here tends to be a little more interesting than this.

    It's Acrylic paint about 6" by 6".

    Aw thanks Thought of that, maybe something involving lots of snot..but it turned into flu so didn't even have the energy to draw..just watched lots of films in a drugged up haze

    I will have a bash today and tonight on ps but might do some painting...

    Nicktrip That's really great looks like it's from 8-Mile

    Hi Hrayr! Welcome to the forums! Nice Self Portrait! - a few suggestions would be to try bringing the shadow work a little more under control while retaining the energy, would be nice to have a bit more colour and highlights and ... if you could post images a little smaller so we can view them easier! (around 1000 pixels wide is good)

    I look forward to seeing more art from you (I recommend you head over to the sketchbooks section of the forums and start your own sketchbook thread )

    Keep rockin!

    You're welcome Hrayr - I look forward to seeing you around the forum!

    Ok guys - haha it's been busy this last while for me and surprise family visit today so after all my 'come on people! join in - post something!' looks like I'm actually lagging behind with producing a final piece this time!

    Also I notice Mahran hasn't posted his yet so....

    Double deadline extension!! 16th!

    If peoples want a little more time that's cool but I'm thinking to wrap this up and get a Poll going in the next day or two so If anyone wants to also enter something quick go for it!

    Rock on peoples - I'm thinking back to superhero related theme for the next Challenge! Please let me know if y'all are enjoying these different themes! I hope to see us all pushing different areas of our art through this!
