I know a while back in the Justin Bieber thread, somebody mentioned that graffiti (spl?) writing would be a good challenge. I think a zombie challenge would be great too.

Hmm...graffiti sounds interesting. Would that work on the face? Or do we all just take it as a wonderful learning experience. I would like to figure this style out.

I skipped out of here for a bit, so I'm not sure what's been covered so toss at will. Wink

Asymmetrical designs (which is my weakness, so I could use the practice)

Prints- find a fabric or something (she says looking at the tissue box) with a print and emulate it or work it into a design then post up both so we can see it!

Haute Couture- this is unique, glamorous and usually off the wall. It's fashion related but I know that teenage girls, and the girls in my salon are all over it.

Flora/Fauna- combine a plant and an animal for something fantastical.

Here is the link to the thread I mentioned. In it, Miss Yoko created a really cool cheek art design using Justin Bieber's initials. I think that graffiti could work for both face and body art.
I also love Lynnie's Haute Couture look idea. Some of the stuff on the runways right now is crazy.

Have you ever done just skulls? How about scenery..landscapes or streetscapes or cityscapes. I do like the tribal idea and the graffiti idea as well.

Ditto on the Tribal idea! I'm still trying to figure out and get comfortable with tribal, but alas, I have yet to add what few tribal designs I've come up with to my board.

What about a psychadelic theme? This is coming form my inner hippie flower child, lol.

Or.... to lump zombies and skulls together, what about a gore theme?

Off course I love haute couture as a make-up artist!

Holiday is on my mind: like cocktaildrinks, sea, swimming, sun, dance, hawaii-prints (I love hawaii), windsurfing, colours.

And how about a variaty of clowns?

I was wondering if you had done a super heros one too.
I try and stay away from doing them .... but a comp might bring out some really cool ones.
I would love an abstract comp.... would encourage free forming your own designs.
Or may be a two colour themed... like only using black and white or only pink and gold or something.
I would also like to do a music themed one, as I find music very inspirational.
Or a "twist on the norm" comp..... where we show a great new twist on a tired old spidy or tiger..... I don't know about you guys but every so often I have to change up my designs to keep them fresh and new, so it would be great to see how others have done this too... like Maggies most recent spin on the old rainbow face... changed the way we all look at doing rainbows.
Or Dragons - Lone's post has shown me there are soooo many ways to do dragons, and heaps of people have problems with them so a comp with step by steps would be very helpfull.
Just some ideas.

Love the graffiti idea, and dragons. Silhouette designs would be cool. Can't remember if you've done mermaids or princess crowns. Animal print designs would be awesome. (Designs that incorporate zebra or cheetah print, etc, without painting the actual animal.) Tattoo sleeves or arm designs would be useful. That's all I can think of for now!

Luau would be fun.

Maybe stuff inspired by other artists in other mediums.

Movie-inspired?

I've been practicing my Graffitti since last month. I'm getting there but it's work! I'm hoping to pick up some hints from Wiser. I think you are only good at graffitti immediately if you are a 15 year old out to tag public property!!!! LOL

Seriously tho...that is a cool one!! I like the flora and fauna idea as well!

The two that stick out most to me as being usable on a job is flames and dragons. It is tough though, do you guys want to focus more on what we can use on jobs or different stuff that might not ever be requested?

The challenge will be set tomorrow, so last day to weigh in.

Thanks for all the input!

I too think graffiti would be really hard. I've tried sketching out stuff like that before and in comparison to the art galleries on the trains that go by my house, well, let's just say that my attempt looks like a two-year-old's scribbling next to the Sistine Chapel. lol!

I like the Flmaes idea, that is a popular request and can either be done quickly or can be drawn out into a big body painting production. It's a theme that has a lot of range. I'm just kicking myself for doing a Fire themed bird design for this month's challenge, LOL lol!

I like the graffiti idea...there is only so much you can do for flames and the step by steps are out there for either layering on the color or using a mini split cate....
