Imo they would be better off not being showcased here right away. Kinda ruins the tour. The official project showcase will happen once everybodys part have been put together in flash and submitted to the portal by lou.

I suggested that people post previews in a first tour and was thoroughly bitch-slapped for my transgression! So, unless you like that sort of thing, I wouldn't recommend it!

Fine, I will however tell what materials I used: Blackboard chalk, multiple Sharpies, and an Orange marking pen from the 70's. There, try and guess what it looks like.

I don't remember that!

The teasing detail shots were - I felt - a great part of both previous threads. As long as you don't show the whole thing and only a small detail, the surprise isn't gonna be totally ruined, but we still get eye-candy.

I've been mucking around with materials. This brown paper was a very good choice, as it opens up the option of white, like you mentioned earlier.

I'll be sending my out tomorrow. I would have to say I shouldn't have colored it, but luckily it didn't ruin the drawing just made it more "alive".

Because if they're anything like me, they'll procrastinate and then forget they have the page :3 It happens.

Plan early, begin soon, start eventually. That's the motto ;D

reason i made the deadline so far ahead is because it takes about 2 weeks to get it to some parts of the world and another 2 for them to make it back to me so in reality those people will have very little time to work on it.

I've started updating the list of returned entries.. just scan through the database from before.. entries returned are in blue. 2 so far, and great ones at that.

I dont know your habits, some people are just really slow ... while some interpret the sketchbook as capturing a spur of the moment. The beauty of the project is that it allows for both.. so I guess just evaluate what kind of artist you are. Maybe you can do it in a matter of days ... maybe you want to do heavy planning..

personally, i think the idea of having this one paper to sort of represent you amongst a pool of 100+ artists gives it a bit more pressure to make something that feels more representative of what you can do.
