About This Class

WELCOME TO THE AVATAR DESIGN CHALLENGE!

d9f0226d

In this class, we will create our own avatar to use it not only on our Skillshare profile but on any social media platforms.

The avatar we use on social media platforms helps other users to form a first impression of us, in fact, it can even influence a person's decision to interact with us. So it is important to determine the impression we want to make, create an avatar accordingly and use the same one for all our profiles in order to make easier for other users to recognize and connect with us, especially if we are trying to promote our business or services.

We are going to learn to draw ourselves and how to incorporate who we are in such a small image.

This class is perfect for anyone who wants to customize her profile and have fun doing it. No previous knowledge of drawing is needed.

I  will use an iPad, an Apple Pencil and Procreate, but a pencil and piece of paper are all you need to follow this class.

THE CHALLENGE HAS FINISHED. FOLLOW ME TO STAY TUNED! MORE DRAWING CONTESTS ARE COMMING SOON!!

CHALLENGE CALENDAR

I will publish a new video lesson every other day.

I recommend you to watch the video lesson and share your drawings in progress in your project section the same day or the day after a video is released. Feel free to ask for help if you need to, ok? 

You can wait and watch all the videos together but I don’t recommend you to do that because this class will be the longest I’ve ever made and you probably get sick of me. Don’t say I didn’t warn you… :) 

RULES & REQUIREMENTS

1. To have an Skillshare premium account.

2. Upload your drawings in progress between March 14th and April 15th in your project section, and/or your finished avatar drawings between March 27th and April 15th.

3. Stick to the theme! “Think outside the box” is always great, but If your interpretation is way too eccentric (the theme is unrecognizable), your work will not meet the rules of the challenge and you won't be able to win any prize.

4. Publish as many different avatars of yourself as you want to, but... Your drawings must be yours! Be inspired, but don't copy. Avatars creating by someone else are not allowed.

PRIZES

There will be two prices, one for "the most hard-working student" and one for "the best avatar drawing". The prize will be two Amazon gift cards, one for each winner. The value of the cards will depend on the number of class projects published from March 15th until April 15th (included). The more the projects published the higher the value of the gifts cards.

In any case, the minimum value of each gift card would be 10$.

i.e. I have 1000 followers. If half of them uploaded a class project, the value of each gift card would be 25$. If all my followers uploaded a class project, the value of each gift card would be 50$ each.

So feel free to invite anyone to the challenge! The more avatars the better the prize! 

Follow along with the class and share your progress in your project section to win "the most hard-working student". To be eligible for this prize you have until April 15th (included) to upload:

1. One drawing focus on your face shape.

2. One drawing focused on your ears, and/or one drawing/sketch of your head + ears.

3. One drawing focused on your hair, and/or one drawing/sketch of your head + ears + hair.

4. One drawing focused on your nose, and/or one drawing/sketch of your head + ears + hair + nose.

5. One drawing focused on your eyes and eyebrows, and/or one drawing/sketch of your head + ears + hair+ nose + eyes + eyebrows.

6.  One drawing focused on your mouth, and/or one drawing/sketch of your head + ears + hair+ nose + eyes + eyebrows + mouth.

7. Share with the class what makes you special.

8. Share at least one drawing of your avatar finished.

Follow along with the class and share at least one drawing of your avatar finished in your project section to win "the best avatar drawing". To be eligible for this prize you have to upload it between March 27th and April 15th (included).

"The most hard-working student" winner will be randomly chosen and "the best avatar drawing" winner will be the student whose project is the most liked by the end of the Challenge. If the person chosen randomly is the most liked, he/she will receive both prizes.
