Contest Rules

Paint from given subjects Shan Peck contest
The subjects to be painted in this contest are shown in the gallery Contest IX mages. Password is shanpeck


If you are a portrait or female figure painter, make a comment for that particular image you would like to paint. Also send me your e mail address where I should send you the file. I will do that when there is enough interest for each particular image.

I will choose which image will be in the contest depending on interest - amount of comments - number of people willing to participate.
Last couple of contests, we had all 3 images.

You will be given a photograph from which you will be painting. You have to capture the resemblance of the person. Any technique is allowed except digital manipulation. The size of the painting should be at least 8 x 10 inches (for the scan) and available for purchasing of at least as a greeting card.
First 3 places I will award with greeting card purchase and in case of exceptional quality, even by print on canvas purchase.

Note: All photos are copyrighted and prohibited from distribution of any kind without written agreement to do so. Please use it only for the contest painting.
Note2: Since this is a contest from supplied subject, after certain time, there will be no more entries allowed, since you will be not able to finish it on time. But if you feel that you are that good an fast, please ask and it will be taken into consideration.

Note: Nudes are given to returning participants only, so if you here for the first time, please choose from the images where is portrait. Once you complete the contest, next contest you will be able to choose from all images. I am doing this because there are still people who will take the image and you will never hear from them (100% men so far) again.
