My dear group members,

it's been a while.

I'm sure much has happened in your lives, just as much happened in my own life. Whoever want to catch up with me - I'm here for you. Otherwise for all people out there who are up for some challenge:

:spotlight-left:CHALLENGE NO.1 - "That's me.":spotlight-right:

Approximate challenge time frame: April 10 - May 10, 2016

Prize: 3 authors will be chosen and an interview with them will be presented on our Group main page with samples of their work. Here you go - sheer shameless promotion of artists for free.

Don't be mistaken - I'm not declaring love for egoism with this challenge theme. The challenge is about the fact that you can never know somebody else as much as you know yourself. Sometimes, you are surprised again and again by what you do in certain situations and it ain't always a pleasant surprise. Some people just don't know themselves at all. What I'm trying to say here - draw yourself. Real self. When you're alone, and nothing really presses you to go about your business or work, what do you do? Do you just look out of the window and watch the passers-by who are unaware they are being watched? Or are you always on the move, in the middle of things, because anything else would have been a major waste of your time? Are you stuck more than you're willing to admit in front of a massive 34" monitor, drawing in Ai until dim morning light and even then the stupid elven huntress wouldn't look as you wish? Do you watch your fish while thinking one particular fish must like you since it comes close to the tank, staring at you back? Do you cook chocolate custard in a massive amount whenever you're alone at home, then eat it all and wash the dishes and wipe them dry, because no one can know you did it again?

I sure don't know if I'm able to look right in the mirror and face my own life choices and consequences coming from them.

Maybe some of you are up for a little retrospective look at your lives and ruminate where are you at with your own life at the moment. Melancholic portrait of a woman with a far-away look in her eyes. A skinny tall girl slouching over her drawing board with 13 empty tins of Pepsi around her. A man - his age closer to 40 than 30, yet somehow still fully occupied with the World of Warcraft while promising to himself he'd lose weight beginning from tomorrow and consequentially find himself a woman to share his life with. A lone divorced woman in her fifties with her children long gone in the world, thinking there is nothing left for her. A 34-year old pretty woman, successful in her job, just that Mr Charming is still nowhere to be found ..... We are all these things and many others.

Participants, please make sure your challenge submissions are marked as such. As I'm in need of a vast self-contemplation myself, I'll participate in the challenge, too. My reward will be..... execution of those interviews. Yes; something may be wrong with me. :paranoid:
