    Here's mine, great thing about these is that because they are so small it takes no time at all to paint :)

    Just need to clear it then stick it in the post ..

    Not participating. If I don't use a 3rd party courier service nothing gets delivered.

    Thanks, the surface seemed to be hard canvas so I have it one coat of gesso to stop any paint 'bleed'.

    everyones are sooo good. lol. this is what i managed! :) i hope it gets something for the charity. its a original thought that just popped into my head that day so its a little voodoo doll sewing a heat onto himself. i like painting voodoo dolls and other dark art type things :). so its a bit embarrassing after seeing everyone amazing small detail work and photo realistic things - they are amazing - i cant do it at all i try it doesnt happen. im not that good at tiny detail, this was very small scale for me, i can probably have done with it being about double the size to be more in my comfort zone. so is about as good as i could manage detail wise..

    will try to do some more practice on small work for future projects i think

    @bex That looks great!

    As far as not being able to do photo real, I personally believe that anyone can do it. My profile picture is proof of that. I painted that the fifth time I ever picked up an airbrush to try and paint. A very easy way to achieve photo realism is to print out full size pictures of what you are trying to paint, then cut out individual shapes or colors , then place the picture over your panel and paint through the cut outs. As you keep doing that, you will see all of those impossible details come to life. Freehand photo realism is a whole different level, that I haven't reached yet.

    for some reason i seem to add a cartoon element to everything i paint. some people say its my style and really like it. it just bugs me though as i want to do photo realistic too lol!! im loving the car art you can do . it is very cool i have done a helicopter with that technique of shielding and masking(not my strong point either) not a way i normally paint so i will add that to another post. its the closest i have got to realistic.

    It will come with a little patience. Everyone has their own style. For me, I gravitate towards photo realism because I can't paint freehand very well. A lot of times I have that "cartoony problem." When that happens, I just leave it that way, because then I don't feel as much pressure to try and make it photo real ;)

    I don't know if anyone else has had similar experiences as I have with showing my painting around. The painting I did was a memorial/tribute to a extremely talented young artist who died a couple years ago. Not only his family and friends want to bid on it, but so do a lot of my friends, but we're here in the US. I couldn't find the info about the auction, so I asked the sponsor for more info so I could pass it on. It seem that they never thought that people in other places/countries would like to be able to bid on the art, even though the artists painting them are scattered around the world, lol. They planned on it being an onsite silent auction only, and what didn't sell would go on eBay. Well now they say they will look into opening up the bid so everyone can bid. I'm hoping that others like the idea about being able to bid on these great paintings and will let the organizers at the fridge magnet art challenge know their interest so that we can make it happen. Not only will it allow others, including the artists themselves to bid, but with an open bid, it will allow them to raise a lot more money for the charity :)
