View Full Version : The "What's-my-style" Ongoing Challenge
06-29-2009, 05:29 AM
I had so much fun on the "What's my style" swap that now I see so many artists here I wish to interpret the style of. So here's an ongoing thread in the spirit of a "Make Me Happy"
How this works -
Person A: one artist puts themselves forward along with three pieces of their art (as examples of their style) and puts forth the challenge to imitate/interpret their style.
Person B: An artist accepts the challengeand puts up three pieces of their art as examples to the next. They then create and post the card to Person A.
Person C: Another artist accepts the challenge and puts up three examples of their own art. They then create a card in the style of Person B and post it to them.
Etc - you get the idea! The challenge continues.
As the cheeky first-person to start this game, I put my own style up on the table and challenge someone to imitate it. Since I don't have anyone to imitate yet, I'll trade styles with the first person to take up the challenge.
* Cards must be your best work. Please INTERPRET the style, NOT directly copy - that is to say, don't make it identical to a piece already in their gallery.
* Medium is open.
* Card must be completed within TWO WEEKS of accepting the challenge.
* Please PM appropriate person for address
* Keep posts relevant to the thread and if you decide to upload the card (As I hope you shall), do so by editting it into your original post.
* You may also browse the artist's gallery to get further ideas of their style - the three displayed here are indicative only and to help avoid confusion by browsing the gallery yourself.
So here are three examples of my work that I think clearly depict my "style":

Does noone want to try this?
07-11-2009, 05:01 PM
I badly want to! LOL, Lemme se if I can make one of your style, then I'll come back and post, summer is always slow in the trading world for some reason...

And here's a very LemurKat attempt at Eraserqueen's style:
Eraserqueen doesn't usually draw animals, except when doing trades with me ^^ But I've decided to draw Katta, cos well, that's what I do. In EQ's style, of course. So I've got the bold colours, the somewhat exaggerated features, the swirls. The flowers and trees are directly inspired by her art, I hope she likes it.
07-11-2009, 08:42 PM
Okay! here is a card made in Kat's style!
Please forgive the terrible scan, the colors look better and there's more shading in the original :eek: Anyhoo... I'm really bad at drawing animals, so I decided to do an herb woman. Kat's art has a lot of detail, bold colors with thick outlines, subtle skies and plants, and I had to add an animal Somewhere LOL, so there is an orange cat, inspired by a cat that she used to have (I can't remember his name!)
Okay, so here are three of my works, and my gallery is Here if you want to see more. (http://www.illustratedatcs.com/forum/gallery/index.php?u=3)

Wow, you totally captured Kat's style! Nice!
07-11-2009, 11:58 PM
I would love to do this!!! (please let me know if I am doing this out of order) Do I wait for someone to post after me and create one in their style? I'm a little slow ha ha
here are 3 of mine...I don't know if I have a "style" so I am going to try to choose 3 that are similar
I posted these really quick b/c my little one was waking up. Please feel free to go through my gallery.

07-12-2009, 01:45 AM

Finished the card for Megan! Does nobody else wants to join this swap?
07-28-2009, 08:08 PM
Lovely card, moondance. I'll jump in again at some point, but I thought I'd see if other people keep it going for a time, lest folks get sick of drawing/seeing my style!
07-29-2009, 05:38 PM
Who wants to take on moonDance's style?

08-19-2009, 04:37 PM

08-26-2009, 07:27 AM

08-26-2009, 10:55 AM
It IS my style :) Thanks so much, I love it!
its in the post moondance with the other trade :D I wonder who will attempt my 'style' (i'm not sure I have one ) :eek:
08-26-2009, 05:34 PM
You DO have one Kre! I always notice it! Someone take on her style before I do!
If I made a card for moondance, do I giver her an Itrader point or the person who does a card for me?
08-29-2009, 02:55 PM
Yeah, you only give an iTrader to the person who sent you something!
09-07-2010, 07:03 AM

09-07-2010, 11:41 AM
