Coaching/mentoring competition 2015!What is this?
Many of you will recall the Coaching Competition, "Beyond Boundaries", from 2013. Basically, it was a 2-month competition in which participants were assigned to a coach (mentor), who was an advanced photomanipulator. The coach taught the students specific skills in accordance with the students' needs, and in the end all students had to complete one photomanipulation in accordance with a theme that was provided to them. It was a great opportunity to learn firsthand from someone who has mastered the field and who wants to share knowledge with members who want to expand their skills.
Improvements for 2015
This year, we are hoping to do another coaching competition, this time with some edits:
We will screen participants in advance and only allow those who are sincere photomanipulators to join. By "sincere photomanipulators," I mean individuals who have at least 3 honest attempts at photomanipul

A MYSTERIOUS SIDE
As artists, we tend to draw our characters with a beautiful and perfectly apparent face. And sometimes we forget about how cool and inspiring characters can be when we can't see their whole face. Remember how Sheik from Zelda, Amon from Legend of Korra, Master Chief from the Halo, Kakashi from Naruto were (and still are) thrilling characters! And how, in every movie, a masked ball scenery can become so magical to us, viewers.
Let the imagination of your viewers define the mysterious side of your character.
What can I draw?
One or several characters with its face hidden or partially hidden.
It is allowed to use your own characters and canon characters (fanart).
