Do This in Your Style Challenge! - Returning for 2024
« on: January 21, 2024, 10:04:30 AM »
!!! This is not a swap !!!


visitors can't see pics , please register or login


This runs from Jan 22nd to April 30th

Everyone is welcome! If you've been a customizer for decades or have never made a custom, you may participate! Fakies are fine to use!

This is not a swap! You will not be shipping or receiving a pony. You may do with your finished custom what you wish.

This is a challenge where guidelines are set and you make a custom based on those guidelines.



How does it work?
Options were gathered from members for each category. These options are then placed into a poll where other members (and those participating) get to vote on one or more. The voting is open for five days and when finished, the option with the most votes is the one the challenge uses.

Here are the poll options:

Polls 1, 2 & 3 - Colors: Body, hair, eyes
Polls 4, 5 & 6 - Theme, symbols, markings
Polls 7 & 8 - Accessory, required material (these are not mutually exclusive)

Polls will run back to back. This will give time to collect votes and for us to brainstorm and prepare our custom.

Why should I join?
This is a meant to be a fun challenge. It's a way to push yourself to use or do things maybe you've never done before. Beginners can use it as a step-by-step for making a custom. It's interesting to see how everyone interprets the prompts and the pony they make!

Prizes?
Not this time. The only prize will be the satisfaction of finishing!

This thread is a place for us to chat!

If you'd like to participate, just say so! There will be a list but it's mainly for me to keep track of people. This not an eligible event for feedback. There are no commitments. If at anytime you no longer wish to participate, you are perfectly able to walk away without repercussions.

The list of prompts will be posted here so it's easy for you to find.
Challenge Prompts as voted by members:

Week 1
Body Colors: Green, Purple, Yellow
Hair Colors: Red, and a 4-way tie (see thread)
Eye Color: Red or Brown (tied for first)

Week 2
Theme: Animal(s)
Symbols: Stars or Leaves (tied for first)
Secondary Markings: Freckles

Week 3
Accessory: Animal companion
Required Material: Beads

And that about wraps it up! I hope you'll join!



Participants:

FAQS

Q. For the body colors, would we pick one of the three, or incorporate all three into the main body somehow?

A. You need to use all three somehow. Like you can use one for the body, one for the symbols and one for the secondary markings. Or all three for the body if you want to do gradients or something.

And everyone remember you can use any hue, tint, tone or shade for the colors chosen.

Maybe.  It will depend on what kind of time I can find for it.  But I enjoyed the last one so if I can, I will.  :biggrin:

Votes are in!

Body Colors: Green, Purple, Yellow
Hair Colors: Red, and a 4-way tie
Eye Color: Red or Brown (tied for first)

The other four hair colors are; Green, Blue, Purple and Rainbow. You need to pick two of them, along with the red, for the hair colors. I'd do another poll, but I'm running late on this. So I'll let you guys choose.

Yikes, that's going to be a challenge indeed! Haha! (I can say green and purple is NOT my favourite combo, even though it's a classic Halloween colour scheme.) Well, at least some of the hair colours on the list match the body colours, so maybe I can avoid the most terrible clashes. :lol:

Really looking forward to starting work on this! I wonder if I should pick my bait now or wait until we know the theme etc.  :wonder:

Interesting! I wouldn't make a custom but I have been trying to draw more and I can use the cues as a prompt to draw a pony once all the categories are filled.

Yeah, I'm not fond of purple and green together either. But yellow and purple are good and green and yellow are good.

Okay, the second set of polls are open! They run for 7 days instead of five because these options are the most important and we want lots of votes :cheer:

The second set of votes are in!

Theme: Animal(s)
Symbols: Stars or Leaves (tied for first)
Secondary Markings: Freckles

I'll let you decide on the symbol addition. And 'animal(s)' is open to include fish, reptiles, amphibians and insects and arachnids. So you can pick pretty much anything. You can focus on one animal or do a group, whatever you'd like :)

edit: Last two polls are up! 5 days for them this time.

OMG. I forgot too :lookround:

Accessory is animal companion again, but it goes with the theme of animals so, might be a bit easier this time.

Required material also makes a return with beads.
