Hiya,

I know we are getting into our busy time and I wanted some feedback on the challenges thus far.

Do we like the one month or two month challenges?
What are some challenges you would like to see? Maybe you have a design you are just dying to enter or you have a topic that you need some help with and would like to see step by steps?

Here are some ideas I was considering:
1. Cheek Art Challenge
2. Flower Challenge
3. Monster Challenge
4. Fairy Challenge
5. Princess Challenge

Please feel free to add comments, voice your frustration, suggestions and vote!

I prefer the 1 month- I think there would be the same number of entries regardless of length of the contest, and I prefer more contests for the more oportunities to win and the greater amount of ideas.

I also prefer for contests entries to only be those which we can use to improve our day to day skills, not elaborate pictures, using lots of products or brushes. But that's just my beef Smile

I prefer one month, for the same reason as Michelle. Most everyone will enter in the first few weeks. Since only 9 will make it to actual voting, I don't anticipate very many people entering more than one design per contest. I can see the necessity for this, but I know it will (or is already) effecting how many entries we are getting for contests. Neutral

My personal beef is the necessity of providing step-by-step photos. tongue They are invaluable for newbies or even oldies, but it is hard for me because I have tons of fun designs that I can't enter because they were taken while working, etc, and I don't have step-by-steps for them. I am so crazy busy that there's no way I can dedicate time to painting step-by-step designs for a contest. Crying or Very sad I'm not really asking for the rules to change. Just whining a bit. Wink

As for the poll, I think fairy faces sounds great!

I agree with Angie about the step photos... so often I just don't have them to go with a good photo/design and no time to duplicate...

I agree with Angie & Shannon. Im so busy at gigs to get photos and I don't have models handy at home so it's hard to get a good step by step for my best designs.
I liked the ideas that came for holidays, like the Marti Gras, that was awesome! My Angel Heart design would be great for Mothers Day and the Marlin for Father's Day, and wouldn't ya know, I thought of it after I entered them in this months contest.
As you can see from my pallet, just about everything I paint is with split cakes and I hope to get at least one photo at the gig tonite.
Happy Painting,
Susan

To keep it fair and helpful, the step by steps are the best way to keep everyone on a even playing field so to speak.

If you could just enter any photo you had, then those with tons of finished photos could enter loads, and would turn this into how other contests are run, which I don't want. I wanted the contests to help those on the forum, as well. This is why I reward with a prize for the effort.

If you have a design you want to enter, take the camera with you on a gig. It really would take less than a minute to take step by steps of your work while your are painting. I know the finished product might be better on another photo, and please feel free to use the best "final" photo you want.

Also, feel free to do the step by steps on your leg or arm if that would make it easier for you.

Thanks for the feedback!

Looks like the most votes for topic were fairy and the most votes for duration were 1 month. There you go!
