Re: Need Challenge Ideas!!

Post by Mehndi Masala on Mon Apr 04, 2011 1:15 pm

There are 12 months in a year, and 12 challenges. I don't mind doing a 'functional' one or two. But we already have that in the challenges for fun (tag 5 minutes) and there are very few places to get into the whole art of the face and body painting! I love the challenges for the super WOW factor of the fine detail work and colors and concepts - it inspires me quite a bit. The bird challenge was FABULOUS but I doubt I myself would have been as thrilled if it had been more 'workable'. I think a vote for that would be fair, OR considering this is your party Metina, your word would be law so whatever you decide!

If you paint the graffiti in the mirror and it comes out backwards, you can flip it in Photoshop so it's not backwards in the picture. I think that would be a fair thing to allow in a graffiti challenge.

How about cartoon characters (licensed or not)?

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

Thanks for all the input!

I agree with Kim

My vote is to keep your challenge on different things that we might otherwise not see.. With your challenge, Metina, we get to focus on creativity and we get to see the amazing talent from the fantastic painters on this board. As mentioned, we have the 5 minute tag, and we are starting the new party theme challenge which will have more practical stuff Smile

There were some good ideas in an earlier thread too I think

I suggested fairytales, space and transportation. All of them thought as ideas for work... Smile

My issue with graffiti is that a lot of the stuff promoted in body art as graffiti art actually isn't. My son is a graffiti artist and we have a HUGE collected of graffiti artists in this area and when I talked with them about it, they definitely set me straight. While I would LOVE a contest in it, that makes it more challenging.

Personally, I want stuff that isn't used in the business. We have tonnes of those threads/tags already so having something that challenges us to think outside of that would be really nice.

........It is graffiti enough. Rolling Eyes I don't think we need to be that technical.

I know this is completely different than any of the above suggestions, but it's just a thought. I'm sure all of us get the kid who sits in the chair and says, I want green on my forehead, with beetles, and blue dots. That child knows exactly what they want, but you have to take the things he said and piece them together into a cohesive design that makes sense. I've seen the game played somewhere else. Basically Metina would have three hats. One hat with colors, one with effects (tribal, swirls, teardrops...), and one with things (tiger, ladybug, flowers...). She would draw one paper from each hat and we would have to come up with a cohesive design out of it. So we would end up having to paint a design that incorporates the color blue, teardrops, and a lady bug. I think it would make us all better at being able to hear the child out for what they want and still turn their crazy idea into something nice.

That hat idea is fantastic! I think instead of being a monthly challenge that could have it's own thread/tag thing. Fantastic!
