Since most of us are too busy to post here (let alone draw), I've decided to shut down this blog. It's been a lot of fun posting here & seeing everybody's work, but the fun seems to have worn off long ago.
I won't delete the blog, I'll just leave it here so we can all come back every once in a while & remember what we did. Who knows... maybe we can start it up again in the future.
Yep, it's that time of year again. That time when school starts again, homework begins to take over your life & this blog goes 'kaputz'. Well, not this year!
I've decided until everyone is free from their heavy workload woes, topic deadlines shall be extended to compensate, giving each of you more time to work on & submit your artwork. Until further notice, each topic shall last a month! That's right... 30 days(-ish).
& since Halloween's right around the corner, why not use that as an excuse to test this plan out, shall we? The topic is to draw ANYTHING that fit's the Halloween spirit. Make it scary, make it creepy, make it jaw-droppingly horrific.... or whatever you feel's right.
You have until Halloween Night (October 31st) to send your work in! So get crackin', soldiers!
Sorry for being late, I couldn't get in contact with ~Em these last few days to ask what her what the new topic outta be. & she decided that the new topic shall be all about SKELETONS! If you want, you can draw parts of a skeleton & it doesn't have to be limited to ones of the human persuasion. Animals are OK in my book.
For being so late, I'm gonna let this topic go 'til Sunday Night at 8 PM.
Since Miss ~Em won last week, she gets to choose our next topic. For this week, the topic shall be NEON. What does that mean?... I don't quite know, but for this particular topic you're allowed to draw your idea of something neon. Clothing, signs, whatever.
Due date this week shall be Friday, September 5th @ Midnight!
This category of dancing doesn't quite have that much of a defined style as ballet, swing or the tango, but it's probably the most recognized dance style in the States (if not the rest of the world):
No other person on this planet dances quite like the white guy. I know, 'cause I've been one all my life, & sadly I have danced at plenty of parties, so many people already are aware of my peculiar movements to music. I'll try to describe it to the best of my ability.
A white guy usually dances off-kilter &/or off-beat. While other people can keep rhythm, beat & time their movements right to the music, the unfortunate white guys dance as if they were either blind, deaf or dumb (the latter one in most cases). Their moves are usually a hodge-podge of out-of-date dances between the years 1954 to around 1987. The most common moves of a white guy are the "sideways peace sign across the eyes" gesture, the "lifting one foot & twisting on the other" shuffle & the most widely recognized gesture: "pointing your finger in the air a la John Travolta in 'Saturday Night Fever'"
Unlike dances of yesteryear, like the Charleston, the Twist & the Macarena, the dance of the white guy never seems to fade away. It's always has been there, & forever it shall remain.
*Since I just got back from a trip today, I roughed this out quickly on the plane ride home & inked it just now. I'll try to get my later entries out of the way before I go away myself. Cheers!
The dance I chose to do was the Tango, it's one I've been wanting to learn how to do for years. The couple is two fictional characters from an RP. The guy (yes, a guy) on the left, is Prince Rougier. He's trying to teach his girlfriend, the assassin Asuka Haruko, how to dance the tango, but she's a little nervous and has two left feet about it.
OK, ~Em won this week's automotive art endeavour, so she decided that this week's topic shall be DANCING.
For this topic, the idea is to draw either one, two or more people dancing a certain way. There are hundreds of different dances from all over the world, from Belly Dancing to the Watusi (whatever that is). To help choose the right dance for you, here's a list of dances courtesy of Wikipedia: CLICK ME!. & remember to write the name of the dance as a caption underneath the dancer(s) in your drawing.
Since I will be away this weekend, the due date for this week's topic will be next Monday, August 25th @ 5 PM.
