Here we are again folks, ART EXPLOSION, THIS IS ROUND 66! The theme this week is INTRODUCEYOURSELF ART!

You can use this inspiration in any way you like, but the art needs to show me something about you. It isn't required but integrating a self-portrait in some way will get you bonus points. Be creative and don't be boring :) Take this an another way to introduce yourself to the Steemit community but through art!

Once again we have a special sponsor and guest judge: [@vachemorte] The total prize pool this round is 20 STEEM and I will also throw in some PAL coins!

Big Announcement: Please read!

The @minnowsupport team has just launched so I now have the ability to reward all you artists with PAL coins in addition to steem, all you need to do is use palnet as one of your tags! If you would like to know more about this project please read my simplified guide here: PALNET: The dazed and confused user guide

I have always had a fascination with self-portraits so I will add a few here to hopefully get your creative juices flowing!






I think you get the idea, yeah?

Please note that once again the duration to submit will be two weeks so take your time and make something great!

I don't know if I can do art of self portrait paintings and such. Will think about it.

Thank you for the entry, but i see you used the tag palcoin, and it's palnet, I will wait to vote so you can change it!!

I have changed the tag, sorry for the mistake.

Awesome thanks :)

Hello, my very dear Julia and all the other great artists who always come with their excellent artworks to this appointment so creative... It hasn't been the best of weeks in my personal life although my life at Steemit has been full of good news... I had a big fall and it occurred to me that this could be a good material to recycle pain into art... hehehehe

I'm glad you were able to get your entry in, I hope things start going better for you 🤗

Hello @juliakponsford! Yesterday I found out about this contest and I wanted to participate, I loved the idea, it's something different, I had never tried to do something like that and I wanted to participate to see what could happen to me.

I want to leave my entrance to the contest, although I know it's late for that.
Thanks and regards!

I dont know what happened this week many people entered late :) Thank i will take a look!

I really apologize! my Internet stinks, I'm the last to know things, I can never participate in your contest because of that. From now on I will follow you closely, so I will not miss anything. :)
Thanks for considering..
