Should we have a non-graphics art contest?

Its been suggested by a few people that we should have a contest for non-graphics artwork. It could include drawing, painting, pastels, etc, or even sculpture.
So what does everyone think? How many of you would be willing to participate?

I like the idea but I probably wouldn't be able to take part right now because we are busy... graphics take me way less time and I can use photoshop at work when we get a few quiet minutes.

I think it should be separate though because the two are soo different. It would be fairer on everyone to have the graphics rules and a much looser set of rules for non-graphics.

...Doing it by hand will take longer..I think we should have them though, but just a longer duration time to do them...I think it would be great for those who dont know the graphic programs to well or dont have them...Just mark is as a non-graphic contest and no use of graphic programs, or combine the 2...All in all I vote yes

could be fun. I have the artistic ability of an amoeba, but I might still give it a shot. As long as nobody would laugh at me!

Sign me up!

I'd have to be submitting old work though since i don't currently have a scanner, is that ok? or would everyone be drawing the same thing, like in the graphics contest? or at least something of the same subject (ie. a black cat)

I think it would be fun to have everyone do a similar subject. It would be neat to see the different variations that people come up with. I think it would be more fair that way too, since everybody would have the same amount of time to have it completed.
JMO, though.

Hmmm... that's another thing... cause i mean, graphics are easier to make them look better, i mean, skill is necessary, but a first time graphic-er can still come up with something amazing... whereas a frist time drawer/painter might not even begin to compare to someone who has been doing that all their life...

The judging should be open to interpretation and apparent effort, not "oh wow, this looks EXACTLY like the picture"... do you know what i mean? Or maybe if after a few contest we see that there are some people who are always winning because of their skills we could put a rule like, the winner cannot participate in the next contest, but they get to pick the picture, or someting like that...

YAY! I'm so excited! Let's get started already!

EDIT: I was thinking about this, maybe to allow more interpretation and creativity and accomodtae to everyone's skills, how about instead of picking a certain photo, we just have it more open ended, like, a cat lying down, or draw any cheetah... just to allow for different poses and whatnot... id ont know
