Theme: Self-Portrait

A self-portrait is a depiction of an artist. As a way to see the person behind the art, I thought the theme of this contest could be self-portraits.


Rules

  • READ ALL THE RULES.
  • Your entry must be a self-portrait.
  • All mediums are allowed.
  • Both old and new deviations will be accepted.
  • The deadline for all entries is September 14, 2012 at 11:59pm EST.
  • Only one entry per person, but you can change your entry before the deadline.

Judges

:iconmissmarzo: :icontwiggyteeluck:
More judges will be added soon.

Judging will basically consist of this: After the deadline, I'll note all the judges with a link to all the entries. The judges will then chose their top 5 entries and rate each from 1-10, 10 being the highest. Then they'll note me back with their selection and rating and I'll add up all the ratings and the three highest will be our three winners.

If you'd like to be a judge, just note me and let me know why you'd make a good judge.
Judges are still allowed to enter the competition.
:star: Open to all mediums
:star: Prizes include premium memberships!

Does it has to be a picture/drawing whatever of my face..or could it be something like a comic like me (whole figure) in a weird landscape? ;)

Thanks. But i dont think i'll stand a chance... lots of nice ones in this contest.

Besides its always fun to enter a contest because other people will see your stuff. Thats why i enter contests....to get new viewers.

So you should enter! And everybody has a different taste... i'm sure your chance of winning is just as big as my chance.

Hey dear :). Been meaning to make a new ID omg so this is perfect. I know the usual format for any portrait is a bust, but if I drew myself full body, would that still be fine or can't you accept that :)? If not then I'll just paint a bust for this competition:D!
