    Following the suggestion on another thread, I just thought I'd ask whether anyone's interested in having a regular fun thread where we all have a go at portraying the same picture?

    Initial thoughts are:

    1. Keep it anonymous, people email me their final picture, and I post all entries
    2. Any media or size, it can be anything you like, from cross stitch to sculpture
    3. Any style, surreal to real and anything inbetween
    4. Have a poll so PF peeps can vote for their favourite rendering, but remember, this is not about the best technical work, but the portrayal that most appeals to people because of how it's been done
    5. Keep it every two months for now, as everyone's quite busy, I think this gives enough time so that enough people can join in

    Anyone interested?

    I'll supply the photograph that everyone has to work from, it could turn into a really interesting discussion about the way different media and styles work.

    I'd love to take part but when will the deadline be? For now it could be for fun but maybe the next time round the top 3 are auctioned for a chosen animal charity?

    That's a good idea re the auctioning, will make a mental note!

    I was thinking for this first time round, to maybe give people to the end of June, and then loosely keep to every two months or so? That gives plenty of time for people to have a good think about how they want to have a go, particularly if it is something like needlework or sculpture etc.

    Any preferences for a first photograph? I think an animal themed picture is probably going to be called for, and then who knows!

    Will look forward to it, if not this time definitely next. Will everyone taking part get sent a high res photograph to work from like you've got? Are you going to keep it as a dog or cat, or get a photo of wildlife?

    I think I've got a good photo in mind, I'll post it a bit later, and if anyone wants it emailing they just have to pm me their email address, so everyone can have exactly the same resolution image to work from.

    Oh dear!!! I just read your title so quick and thought it said "Is anyone interested in getting any" I was about to respond with a really inappropriate comment then read your thread.

    I think my reputation for foot in mouth propositions to the Mods is legendary, but I type a little more carefully these days :lol:
