The Second semi-semiannual Graphical Drawing Competition is underway! After a poll that tied twice in a row, I've had to be the deciding factor. So, with great aplomb, the subject . . . shall be . . .

Hair.

(Sorry, scenery people)
For this contest, you can draw hair---any style or shape at all, be it beehive or pixie cut---in color or without. You MAY draw a head to help define the shape, but keep it like a mannequin: no expression or contours. This is a contest about hair and not faces, so faces may give one an advantage over the others.

As usual, no digital art, no backgrounds or scenery (yet) and definitely no faces. The drawing must not be on this group already, adhere to the group rules, etc. and so on. Please do try to take a clear picture of your entry, or else we won't be able to see it.

This contest begins now and ends on the 27th of January---a week from now. A poll shall then be held, with any posts that have not followed the rules will not be included in aforementioned poll.

And, of course, post a link or an alert about your entry in this thread. And, if possible, include a description of your drawing saying that it is for Drawing Competition #2. Any amount of entries per person are allowed.

BEGIN!

Here's my attempt... not sure if the face is suitable as a mannequin head... so feel free to delete if not allowed.

No reference photo. Drawn with pen and pencil

No..."


I apologize, Monique . . . I explicitly said "no contours" so I'm going to have to remove it. If you can remove the face of your drawing and then re-post it, that would be great.

Lana (ohmylily) | 22 comments Sweet, hair is my favorite thing eveeeeeh

Reference: Yes.

And Monique, could you erase all textures on the face and have it be a blank ball, and take a new picture and enter it?


message 7: by Monique (new)

Monique https://www.goodreads.com/photo/group...

Here's a photo without a face. Hope this is allowed :)
No reference.

message 11: by kylee, (new)

kylee,  (allmyfriends_arefictional) it's fine.

Anna {Follow me for reviews! (✿◡_◡)} GUYS STOP SAYING YOU ALL ARE BAD AT DRAWING HAIR!!!

18BlueberryQueen Oh I can’t draw hair. If I remember I’ll show you guys mine. But it’s awful.

Stay . . . positive . . . *heavy breathing* Now really, keep a good outlook. Anna is correct in implying that y'all are too negative about your art. Consider the effect is has on your psyche if you keep downgrading your skills.

Faith (victorianprincess) | 27 comments Oh, Smaug, I didn't mean to start all this! I am very sorry.

Don't worry about it. Worry about your self-confidence. That's probably the thing getting the most damaged.

And, a reminder: the contest ends this Monday, so get those entries in if you have 'em!


message 21: by Lana (new)

Lana (ohmylily) | 22 comments Yeah guys! Think of it this way: If you are constantly saying how BAD you are at stuff, then how does that make other people feel?!
Broadcasting confidence and positivity is good for you, AND for other people around you!


message 22: by [deleted user] (last edited Jan 25, 2020 12:36PM) (new)

Sorry, I have a tendancy to get nervous when people judge me so I just like to flat out say my opinion of my stuff, but I TOTALLY get where you are coming from! I'll make sure just to say it in my head next time or try not to think about it at all :[] I'll try to be more positive


message 23: by [deleted user] (new)

*sighs* I never knew that you guys would be such a great influence on me;]


message 24: by [deleted user] (new)

I have to remember that you guys don't judge me tho

I love it!


message 27: by Laura-Lee (new)

Laura-Lee Rahn (lauraleewashere) I grew up next to an older brother who was a genius artist so I've always been "lesser". But I found out I like to draw, so I don't care if I win. I'm just glad to be allowed at the "party". And if people actually can tell what I drew a picture of, I figure I've done pretty good.
