Holy moly man! Coro that is the most portraits I have ever seen dumped in one day. Ever.
It's on!!! International Portrait and Composition Month starts now!!! Fingers crossed and maybe we can get Andrew Jones going again on that which he built his fine art career on. Android? You in?
Any media. Any styles. NEW WORKS ONLY!! Self portraits, people portraits, hell...even pet portraits (as long as a person is in them!!). Faces faces faces faces heads heads heads heads. The head painting here on CA is going to get better. It is an area we can all improve in and with a good push I think we can see the artwork improve across the site. Please take your time and do a good job. This will not be a race but a nose down, face deep, exercise in outward expression of the inner soul, anatomy, surface, brushwork (or lack thereof), and media.
Since it is portrait month, those who pick up coro's upcoming download will have a shot at getting crits here too! Both Coro and I will be around to offer crits and input for those who are posting their work (those supporting the community will get dibs by picking up Coro's download and help us all have this place to share)....I do not have a whole ton of time but I have enough to help quite a few this month. I am working on something too...fingers crossed I will have enough time to finish it. Gotta try though. However, everyone here is encouraged to crit and help others with constructive, well thought, input and ideas. This will be a very active thread. No doubt we will all learn some things by August 1st. Want to learn with us?
