A self portrait, or a time scaled figure study. 2 hours?
Good idea Walid, nice job.

A self potrait would be very nice, or maybe a design for a futuristic vehicle/spaceship. Thanks for the warm welcome to the ssg guys.

weve gotta do the imagination stuff too, we could do the thunderdome thing, we all get together at one time (if we can differing time zones might fuck that one) pick a topic and say weve got 2 hours to work on it the best we can, then after 2 hours we post whatever we've done.
(dosnt have to be 2 hours though :P )

Well, I was more thinking about doing creative stuff, but why not start by a selfportrait :)
Nrx : your idea of " speed challenges" looks great, but it will be difficult to be al online here at CA at the same time, without tlking about time zones, which don't help us ! Anyway I think we could give a try to see if all happens good I think we need to find an hour when all of us have free time !
Well, i think the best way is that we each of us successfuly choose a challenge's topic, and why not starting by Sketchz ? ( or we could do first the selfportrait, and after the Sketchz' challenge !! )

So I hope you will like this challenge, and hase fun with it !
I'm loking forwad too see your work ! I'll also ask to CA admins to activate the " manage attachment" tool in the challenge arena section !
After this challenge, we have two choices : either start a new challenge for the new year, or wait the next monday to start new challenge, and we will be synchronized again with the week ( that means deadlines will be every sunday midnight ! )

Nice piece sketchz ! Well, like everybody slack because of christmas and New year, I think it will be better if we move the deadline to the 1rst january ! I allready spoke about that to bigfootrooper and Dan , but i still don't have the tips from sketchz and Fraz !
