NEW AC CHALLENGE RULE: Winner of the previous challenge picks the winner of the next challenge.
The discomfort zone: Welcome to the
Thomas Kinkade memorial service
31st AC challenge. This time around we'll have your forum-mates/acquaintances/arch enemies decide which artist you will impersonate and this artist has to be somewhat diametrically opposite of what your style usually is. In this particularly devious challenge sweat will be shed, tears will grease your bodies and eyes will be torn out from sheer frustration of the impending task (but what do I care, I just administer the
challenge) and if you get the task of forging an artist you particularly despise, making the best of it is part of the fun. The goal is to get as far away from your comfort zone as possible by impersonating the style (not the subject) of the given artist and seeing what happens.
In order to sort out what style you'll be drawing in just write "I'm in" in the comments so we'll know who's participating. Also, if you don't frequent these parts of the forums so often (or the forum in its entirety) and would like to participate just quickly describe a bit about yourself (pet's name, mother's maiden name... anything that might be a secret question) and what art styles you mostly practice.
May Liefeld have mercy on your souls.
edit: ALSO you have to participate if you want to suggest match ups! Cue evil laughter.
edit: edit: changed the title and description to better reflect the direction this is going
For those of you who frequent the conceptart.org forums this should be pretty familiar; tens of artistic combatants thrown together in to an artistic arena, each struggling for the honor of being dubbed a master of the visual arts. Those of you who succeed will be bathed in glory and the blood of their competitors, those of you who fail will be exiled to a life of shame and isolation.
The aim of this thread is to try and spice things up a bit here in the ol' Artist's Corner. This thread is for entries in to the challenge or the discussion thereof. If you'd like to suggest a topic for the weekly challenge, go right ahead, but understand that the last winner of the challenge has total control over the task (unless they have won more than two challenges in a row, see rules).
The rules are simple;
* One entry per person, per challenge.
* A contestant cannot win more than two challenges in a row.
* Winner gets the privilege of choosing the next challenge.
* Winner also gets the honor of picking the winner of the next challenge.
* At the end of a challenge, the thread is locked and a new one is begun.
* Stick to the challenge topic; no going off on a tangent.
* All formats welcome, whether they be traditional or digital; 2D or 3D; still or animated.
