PostPosted: 0    Post subject: The Dream Challenge - First WIP due Jan 3rd!

This is not a swap!

This is a challenge!

The difference: you are only making a custom for yourself and sharing your progress and results to the community.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

What’s the Dream Challenge?

The dream challenge is where we finally set the time; away from everything else to finally work on a custom that we have dreamt about for years/months/weeks/days.


That’s it; this challenge is a personal promise to yourself to make a custom that screams your dreams.


Those who sign up are strongly encouraged to post a monthly/weekly/daily/whatever your schedule lets you, WIP of your dream pony.


Those who sign up should be willing to ask questions, give feedback, offer encouragement, work hard, maybe write a tutorial and have fun! This should be a nice exercise in doing some personal work and expanding our boundaries as artists.


You have one year to complete your dream custom.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Well for everyone who said yes or maybe and even those who said no that we can persuade:

It's Game On!

Let's go ahead and get some confirmed sign-ups!

Deadlines:


Design: 12/1 Please try to sketch or pull together a group of inspirational images for at least some element of the design...the cutie mark, eyes, feathers...etc. Better if you can doodle the whole thing. There is line art in the arena coloring book you can easily print and doodle.

Include what bait you'd like and hair colors.

Also include if you have any "weaknesses" and need some help. Between all of us we can reverse engineer anything and have a clue on how to get it done!

WIPs are due on the 3rd of each month starting January (around there give or take) You can post as often as you want but you really should post once a month. You gotta keep on it!

Dream Finished/Challenge Complete: 12/25/12 - That's right...Holiday season....you really should wrap her up and give her to yourself for a holiday gift...you have earned her ^_^

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

FAQ:

Can I make more than 1? Yes...but you have to finish one by or before the deadline.

Can I finish early? Yes...the deadline is just a goal for us slow people. If you can get your's done faster then go ahead.

Seriously do the deadlines mean anything? With any major project breaking it down to small obtainable goals is key to getting it finished. Deadlines also give us target dates, which people are likely to pay attention to.

Can I quit? It's your pony...however don't be surprised to get a PM from me asking you what's up and if I can help.

I don't have X supply can we trade? Feel free to post supply needs and trade options on the thread (within Arena Rules). We are all striving for a dream pony here so it's a good thing to help out.

Do I have to be active in the thread? You really should be, if anything to answer questions or share insight and definately share progress.

I'm nervous about sharing WIPs, cause I think people will not like them. What then? Do NOT EVER be afraid to show us your work. Constructive conversations help us as artists and rude people wont' be tolerated. However if you are deathly afraid you can PM me your WIP.

Sounds fantastic, but I don't think I can do my dream customs by me because I have been trying new things and still suck at sculpting and sewing, lol

That's one of the points of the challenge...do try something and expand your skills.

No one said your dream custom had to be perfect...it just had to be a time invested experience...something selfish ^_^

Besides you'll have lots of support!

Count me in!

*thinks* Though I think I might modify my dream pony specifics. (I'm just not sure I can get ahold of car paint).

You know, I actually prepped a G4 styling Rarity last night, half-thinking I might finally attempt such a thing ... but this morning woke up remembering how badly I sculpt. XD

Maybe I'll get in on this too. I do have a bait prepped for the first idea I had after I discovered customs.
