Dare of the Week: 011

Friday, April 13th, 2012

Hello once again readers!

Ok people, so this week’s dare is one that I personally have been wanting to do and I figured making it a dare would help me get to it. I have been on massive 8-Bit kick lately and have really always been a fan of the art style since I kind of grew up on the stuff. I also love photography, well, portraiture specifically. Also, with the age of social networking and the avatar craze, combining the two art forms is almost a perfect blend. So… this time…

Dare of the Week: 011
Do an 8-Bit digital portrait!

The guidelines this time are, no using Photoshop filters! I can tell and it takes away all the creativity from the dare, so don’t do it! Have fun, I can’t wait to see them!

Self Portrait

Hello once again readers!

So we took a little break from the Dare of the Week because everyone has been so busy. After a nice little rest I think we are probably all ready to get back at it again. I am going to ease us back in with a simple dare. This time around we are going to do a photography challenge! This one should be accessible by everyone, if you don’t have a camera, chances are you have a phone and that phone probably has a camera on it. So enough talking you into it, let’s find out what the challenge is…

Dare of the Week: 010
Do a fun or interesting self-portrait!

My only requirement for this dare is that it needs to be well composed! So put a little thought into it, maybe even take it into Photoshop and check all the levels? Who knows, it could come out better than you thought it would (below is an example of mine).

Day After Tomorrow scene

Hello again Audience!

It’s time again for this weeks dare! I know this one is a little earlier than most but I couldn’t wait! I found this great little challenge on another site and I had to share it. This is another one where I supply you with a file and then you have some fun with it! So what is it this time…?

Dare of the Week: 009
Do a fun “Day After Tomorrow” scene with the file provided.

This is what the file looks like when you will get it. The checkered areas and blank so you can put anything you want in there, or anything you want inside the room for that matter! Have fun, be creative, go wild!

Minimalistic Poster

It has been a while since the last dare. Sorry about that, we had some problems on our end. That aside, I have a new dare for you! This one is influenced by Pixar this time around. As some of you may know, we are celebrating our 125 Year Anniversary here at the Cogswell. On that same note, Pixar is Celebrating their 25 Year Anniversary and with that they released a cool little poster recently that I love.

Zombies Dare: Draw Abe Lincoln
Dare time ya’ll! This one is in honor of the release of the amazingly cool trailer; Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter (and Presidents Day). I got totally inspired to draw something crazy when I saw that trailer and thought maybe you guys could join me. Instead of making you go and do an extravagant painting or drawing I ended up finding this little picture of a sculptural bust of good ol’ Honest Abe. So whats the dare you ask?

Dare of the Week: 007
Do a study of the Abe Lincoln bust, no restrictions.

Here is the source file again for Abe just in case you didn’t see it in the main message.
