2 questions:

does bust have to be from breast up or can it be neck up?

also, does it have to be a realistic human-like remder or can it be wood or brass or clownface:p ect.?

I believe the bust would be better represented if it was the traditional upper-chest and up. You don't have to texture it, but again, it would probably help in presentation and judging.

Yeah great subject. I'd be all over the ninjas, but alas no time for this one. Couldn't resist a quick speedpaint though.
I wish you all a fun challenge and a nice summer.

Oh man. This is an awesome idea. I probably don't have enough time for this but I'll give it a shot later anyway.

Well, my computer is finally back online. I'd love to take part in this one but I won't have the time considering my lateness and soon to come vacation (Im going to war in PA - for anyone who might know what that is ).

Hey, guys, sorry I've not been around much. I recently moved and am in the process of buying a house, which is keeping me quite busy. I start my new job Monday though, so hopefully I'll be able to check in more from there until I get settled.

Thanks for understanding!

Hey, guys, this challenge will have to be pushed a little long. I'm still living out of a suitcase as I'm trying to buy a house and all my stuff is in storage (including the prize books)! I hope to be moved in by the end of August.

Which would you guys prefer:

End this challenge on the normal deadline, start a new one, and just mail the prizes out when I can.

Push this challenge's deadline to the end of the month.
