    Default Closed l Challenge 77: British Invasion



    Welcome, one and all, to my first challenge in a good many years!! I'm so glad this has been brought back, but I'll have to think up some more challenge ideas, lmao!!

    For my first go this time around, I wanted to give you guys something a little easier and a little freer.

    Being British myself, I love the fact that there are so many actors and actresses from my neck of the woods leading the charge at the box office and the small screen, and I want to celebrate that.

    Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to make a piece of art depicting an actor or actress from the United Kingdom, or the character they portray.

    For the purposes of this challenge, I want to clarify something. I am from Northern Ireland, Belfast, to be specific. I consider myself to be British and I consider that Northern Ireland is a British country and part of the United Kingdom, so actors and actresses from Northern Ireland will be accepted for this challenge. And encouraged!! Bonus points maybe given!!

    The Fine Print

    Subject: British Actors and Actresses (sorry, that means no other nationality actors playing British characters)


    Entries: As many as you wish!!

    Sizes and Dimensions: I don't want to limit anyone to one specific dimension, so I'm allowing wallpapers, Tumblr art, banner and anything else you can think of. One thing I will ask, is that, if you chose to make icons, can you please make a series of at least 5 icons, as I find that easier to judge style and technique.

    Fandoms: Anything, as long as the actor or actress portraying your chosen character is British.

    Deadline: One month from today, December 6th 2018!!


    If anyone has any questions, please ask!!

    Entry #1: Eddie Redmayne as Newt Scamander.

    Newt is a character from the Potterverse. He is kind of the magical Darwin.

    Gary Oldman in Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy. I think he's a fantastic actor and his performance in this film is extraordinarily nuanced and clever.

    This piece actually kicked my ass. I just couldn't get to what I wanted, and still haven't, but it's a case of dump it or post it

    Michael Caine is one of my favourite actors, and The Ipcress File is in my Top 3 favourite films of all time. It's iconic and very British. My piece is heavily influenced by the actual movie poster, which I'm not a big fan of and I think I've improved on it

    Entry #2: Tom Hiddleston as Loki


    I tried something new, but I'm not really happy with it. Everything went rather well until I had to add Loki. He doesn't fit in the poster. :') Oh well....

    Entry #3: Eleanor Tomlinson

    She is an actress who is well known for series like Poldark & The White Queen. Not much to say, it's a classic wallpaper in the category 'Nina throws textures at a canvas'. Something I used to do all the time. But it's been a while, so it was fun doing it again.

    Lyri, is it alright to do a piece with other actors/actresses in it that aren't British if the main character of your piece is?

    Okay, right at the last as always!! I love this conversation between Beric Dondarrion and Jon Snow in GoT, especially with Beric's beautiful rumbling tones and who can't adore a character that has a flaming sword! I mean, come on.

    Beric Dondarrion is played by the vocally gifted Richard Dormer (Northern Ireland) and Jon Snow by Kit Harington (English).

    Thank you, Nina. Apologies for the lack of reminders and what nots - retail hell at Christmas and an annoying sickness that just will not shift has limited my internet time.

    Thanks for all the great entries. I'll be back soon with feedback!!
