LETS FILL DECEMBER WITH BIRDS! ALL CHALLENGERS WELCOME! STARTS 1ST DECEMBER 2017.
Yes… he’s back! Mr Birdmas has flown south this winter again to bring you all something fun to try!
I’m inviting anyone at all to take part with me on this fun drawing, doodling, and painting challenge I’ve dubbed #Birdmas. It’s a challenge all about drawing or painting birds and is inspired by the Christmas carol ’12 days of Christmas’. The rules are simple and are as follows:
Draw/paint birds for 12 days in December. Minimum of 1 artwork for each day, but you can do more if you like. You can use ANY medium of your choice, and you can choose ANY bird(s) you like for each day, either real or made up. You don’t have to be detailed with your artwork! Each piece can be as basic or as detailed as you like, providing the subject is a bird. From doodles to final pieces, it doesn’t matter, just have fun with it!
Please tag your posts using #birdmas (in your description of each entry). It’s recommended that you use other additional tags, or even make a category, so that your work is more easily accessible to others, but this is optional.
It is advised that you don’t write the hashtag on your actual artwork… just in case you want to sell the work that you make!
You can draw/doodle/paint the birds in 3 ways. Either:
– Number method Draw/paint a bird each day next to the number of the day you are on (e.g, if you’re on the 1st day, draw a bird next to the number 1…. 2nd day, draw a bird next to the number 2).
– Quantity method Draw/paint as many birds relating to the day you are on 1 sheet of paper (e.g 1 bird on day 1… 2 birds on day 2…. 5 birds on day 5 etc).
– Custom method If you find the above ways too challenging or you don’t understand them, you can just draw/paint 1 bird each day for 12 days in your own way.
Abstracts are allowed but they must hold at least some resemblance or connection to being a bird or having a bird form. Again, I really don’t mind if your pictures aren’t perfect, but unrelated abstracts or other artwork that feature no birds in them will not be accepted. Thank you for understanding.
You can only submit your own work for this challenge. Please do not submit anyone else’s work other than your own. If you did the work as a collaboration, please mention this in your description.
If you only want to share other people’s work just to share it, please be reasonable and ask them first, however it will not count as an entry. On another note, if you have posted work that you don’t want other people to share, you can click ‘disable reshares’ to stop others from sharing it that way.
Changes to these rules may happen at any time to improve the overall quality and fairness of this challenge.
As said previously, I have intentions to make a community for this challenge, hopefully I can give updates about that. If one is made, I’ll let you know, and you can post your entries there.
Please feel free to reshare this post around so people get a chance to see this and play along. If you don’t want to join or can’t join, that’s fine, you can just watch me do this challenge, but any challengers of any ability are highly welcome! I will be predominantly monitoring this on G+, however, please do let me know if you take part. It’ll be fun and interesting to see who joins!
That’s it! Feel free to leave comments or questions!
Remember, challenge officially starts on December 1st. Thanks kindly… Cheers all! Enjoy!
