PostSubject: Portrait Contest!!   Mon 7 Jan 2013 - 20:03

I'm finally digging out after the holidays so I'm going to push the date back a bit. I know I originally talked about the end of February but we're going to do the end of March instead!

So, here's the scoop/rules!

1) Pick a picture of you, a family member, friend, etc that you've always thought would be fun to make a copy of. Since the picture is your choice ... so is the kit!!! (Duh, right? hahaha) You are free to chose between preemie, baby, or toddler ... just depends on how much work you wish to do.

2) The judging for the contest will be based on how well you "copied" the original photo. And of course you'll have to post the original for comparison! While props and such will help to achieve the whole picture, I think we'll try to focus on the baby/toddler itself and what it's wearing.

3) You are free to root or wig your baby or toddler. We are not basing our contest on rooting or painting skills per say ... but on how closely you managed to reproduce the original *portrait*.

4) Hiring out the task of recreating the clothing is totally acceptable, as long as only you and the seamstress you chose see the project. Plenty of time after the contest to give kudos to your co-conspirator!

5) Contest entries open March 22, and will close on April 2 at midnight Pacific time.
I will get pictures organized and posted for the contest no later than April 5th. (I promise no foolishness!! lol)

6) Email your pictures to sharonskidsandkritters@gmail.com with Portrait Contest in the subject line. Please send the original, your recreation, and 1 more of your choice. It can be a reference photo if the color in your original isn't that great, or of your creation if it helps show the similarities. If you don't receive a reply from me saying I got your entry please send it again! I will always let you know I got your entry!

*****************************

I'll be adding more information as needed so check back here periodically!

Wow, you read my mind! Tonight while I was making dinner I was wondering about this contest and whether or not I'd be able to participate...Mid-late March is do-able!

I also had a question about the original photo, could we choose one photo to reproduce, but also include a couple more? I have a picture I'm thinking I want to reproduce (scene, outfit, etc.), but the color isn't the greatest. I want to show other photos so people could get a better feel for what the coloring I was going for really is.

I was pondering having it limited to one photo of the portrait baby, since what we're going for is a reproduction of the original photo. That would give us 2 per entry.

So here's something to toss out to the rest of you to think about ... how many photos? Two of the original and two of the portrait baby? Or a total number of photos as long as the original and reproduction photos are clearly marked?

What are your thoughts?

Not everybody will have the possibility of having more than one photo of the original but I really don't see a problem with having Original photo scene with what reproduction scene and then 1 additional photo of the original baby for coloring if they differ.

Okay so no more than 3 photos! The original, the reproduction of the original, and then one of your choice. How's that sound?

Thank you so much for the kind words! We are home but like I said it will be a long recovery, no sleep for us & alot of pain for him. He is doing way better than they thought, which is good news so the recovery may not be as long as they think.
thankyou!

I'm pretty sure it was said somewhere in here that using the original (if you have it!) is fine.

It photo you are recreating doesn't have to be *the* original. It can be a copy, as long as it's clear enough to give us a good idea of what you're trying to copy.

The clothing *can* be the original if you have it (that's pretty awesome if you do! lol), if you don't have the original you should be trying to find something that matches as closely as possible. That's the intent of the contest ... how accurately can you reproduce a portrait.

So when choosing your pictures keep in mind the backgrounds and props so that you can recreate them also.

Oh and here I thought it was about the reproduction of the baby, not the vignette. eyeroll

My initial idea was to recreate the portrait as closely as possible. I totally understand that it won't totally be possible to completely recreate backgrounds and props but I think part of the fun is going to be how creative we can be in achieving the look alike picture.

Otherwise we're just having another painting contest. I kind of wanted this one to be something different.
