Hello to all Soul Collectors :wave: 




I'm sponsoring a contest with the theme "Portraits" at the group Soulcollectors.
What do I want to see? Good art, amazing portraits, all kind of traditional or digital portraits. 

But what are portraits?
"Portraits are works of art that record the likenesses of humans or animals that are alive or have been alive."
"Portrait is a likeness of a person, especially of the face, as painting or a drawing."

- So, can you submit fantasy, an imaginary face?
Yes!

- So, can you submit a drawing of a body in which we can not see the head?
No!

- And can you submit a full body drawing?
Yes, but we have to see the face clearly.


Here are some examples:

TRADITIONAL

:wave: Hello to all members of Global-Photos
I thought it would be fun to have a contest. I really like contests! :D
Even if you don't win, it's nice to participate - you can show your work to others!

So, what is my idea for this contest?

To run a contest in 2 categories, Photography and Photomanipulation, with the theme "LIGHTs".

What do I want to see?

Anything related to light: it can be a candle, a fireplace, a rainbow, a strange glow, sun rays, xmas lights, dim light or bright light (but, please photographers, don't photograph the sun!: you'll ruin your camera, your eyes and ours!).

Some examples of beautiful lights:
