Contest Help

Hey folks, I want to have another contest and I have a couple of ideas for what it could be, but I'm interested to hear if you have any suggestions. It could be an specific material, technique, subject matter or it could be something to do with one of the 365.25 skulls I made. What do you think?

how about clay skulls?

Kny said...

Clay or have everybody go sick with polymer clay (Sculpey, etc.)... so yes... clay.

You could use something that everyone has around the house like clothes, dishes, furniture?, cleaning products. Stuff that everyone might have but doesn't automatically scream "I'm A Skull!"

Yes, sculpey, you could call it Skullpy contest! woot! I do like the idea of seeing some oil paintings as well. Or something like your #357. Nude (but Safe For Work) Skull. I wonder who I can get to pose for me? Hmmmm.......... Also the stuff around the house skulls rock, cause everyone can do them.

Recy-skull! All recyclable materials!

Maybe a contest where all the skulls would have to be made out of something that is not normally considered a material. For example, my favorite skull of yours was the shadow skull, where the skull shape came from the way paper was cut and the way light was angled through, so that the skull was actually made out of shadow. Possible materials could be shadow, light, fire, air (the effect of blowing air on something), sight (my idea here would be to take photographs of particular points in a landscape or some other large thing, and when the photographs were put together to match real space, the shape of them would be a skull -- does that make sense?). That's all I can think of, but I'm sure there are readers out there that can think of more. Hooray, creativity!

How about a skull made out of something you collect? I know you did at least one skull that was made out of someone's collection so now maybe everyone else could show off their collections in skull form. It could be their Skull-ection!

uhhh, how about beer cans, that best suit a skull in the image they have, like using the coca cola strip to make it a smile or something.
I said beer but it could be any type of can obviously, unless you really love beer and in that case it has to be beer.

I like doomination's idea... a Skull-ection of, ah, Skull-ections? :) Lots of possibilities with that!
