This thread is intended to be used to share your progress or possible final submissions with the members of the community as well as those running the contest. Please feel free to post your images for advice and tips, to get feedback, or to even just simply show off your hard work!
Throughout the month myself and others will be popping in to give help and advice as you work to make your creative visions for the contest come to life.
To start things off I wanted to give you all an example as well as some tips on helping fine that perfect pose for your image.
Finding the Perfect Pose (Reference and a Game Plan are Everything)
When working on this image it will probably be best to start by either picturing the type of image you would like to make or by browsing the net and seeing what inspires you.

Once you have found that perfect pose that ignites your creativity then it is time to go into your favorite app and try to recreate that pose as best as you can. If you need help along the way, please post and we will gladly help and give you advice along your way!
For an example of using a photo reference to create the perfect pose for an image, please see the images below. The first was the reference I found and the second was the image I created....attempting to recreate the pose and in my case the entire general mood of the image (cuz I just liked it that much LOL) Granted this is an older image of mine but I thought one that should illustrate the intent of the contest
