Welcome to Portraiture, a little tektek contest I thought up when I realized how awesome I think Gaia's picture frame type items are. Sadly, there aren't many, but I've still thought up a bitchin, challenging five round contest involving the loss of many a lower limb.

So lose your legs and party out with me!

Hola people, I'm Shimmertits, been on Gaia for over six years. I've always liked to make fabulous avatars, but I'm such a lurker I haven't been around the AT too much. I have rather odd tastes when it comes to avatars, only having large issues with clutter complex enough to where the pixels don't blend unless I take my glasses off.

Hey everyone. I'm Sifen, 22 years old and Singaporean. I used to judge in Avatar Talk quite often, but in October, I took a hiatus to work on some personal matters, namely the relationship with my girlfriend. Now, after contemplating, I'm back in the judging game. Just because I'm the new kid on the block, doesn't mean I'll go light on you.

I’ve been on gaia for nearly six years and have found very few passions here. One is roleplaying. The other is avatar creating. I like to make avatars that not only match color-wise, but match flow-wise, creativity-wise, and theme-wise. My main personal prejudice is when skin shows on the face but nowhere else.

Ohhaithere! I'm Ricky. I'm nineteen, and I'm a junior in college. I'm very eccentric and pretty effeminate in nature, with chocolate curls for hair that are so fun to play with. I dress, as one friend described, "in half-drag," and I have fun with it. Most people here would recognize me as that one person that would also use aristocratic avatars and loves beads, but really... most people here just know me as lovable. However, chances are now that you don't know me, as I'm on a half-hiatus due to multiple things, like college. Yay, reading!

Final Round: Make Us Feel It!

For the final round, you'll be making four avatars, quantity and quality is expected from you, finalists! This round, I want you to match the frame, so some black in the black frame, pink in the pink frame, etc. The add to this, I want you to make these portraits evoke a feeling, specifically, one that evokes joy, one that evokes melancholy, one that evokes confusion, and the last one can evoke any emotion you can think of. When you turn your entries in, I want to know which is which emotion. ^_^

Thanks and good luck guys.

Open!

I'm totally open to banners that don't suck instead of my beautifully colored text, as a side note... if anyone knows anyone or does it themselves... yup.
