Does anyone have any suggestions for the December/January art challenge yet, or know when it might be held? I'm not sure whether we have enough time for an end-December one, and everyone may be a little busy. MyPaint's v1.2.0 release is very lightly pencilled in for the end of this month too, so it might coincide with the first art challenge in a very loose sense
Maybe something that is may center around new years resolution or at least mocking it? Or maybe creating a mascot for MyPaint. 😂
Wow, so many possibilities! Here are a few ideas:
My proposal would be to keep it simple and a theme very easy to communicate ; a challenge about a specific animal ( eg. the turtle, the red fish, the mouse, the penguin...etc... ) with two or three photo references on the challenge page ( eg. from Wikimedia ) .
Since it's for December/January, maybe a winter theme?
Or perhaps using the symmetry tool? Doesn't have to be perfectly symmetrical, the two sides can even be opposites (good and evil, night and day etc).
If I may, I think it should be something to welcome the new year. Like maybe a best 2016 wallpaper created in MyPaint, maybe ?
Yeah, I'm thinking along the lines of @davidrevoy to keep it simple since it not entirely clear when MyPaint 1.2 will be released.
By the looks of it we can do a mixture of a New Years resolution theme an animals as the character? Kinda like an illustration for a Children's book. What animals come to mind when you think of New Years Resolution?
