'One Drawing A Day' Challenge #1 (ended)
« on: January 07, 2010, 03:18:35 pm »
Welcome to the very first 'One Drawing A Day' Challenge.

BADGE EDIT:
Available badges for this month--
(hopefully you don't have problems with transparent PNGs by this point >.>)
(also, feel free to hotlink off my googlepage; the images will probably last forever on there)

Badge of Completion, take this badge if you completed this month's challenge


Badge of Participation, take this badge if you participated in this month's challenge but did not complete it


Badge Template (.PSD)
Those who are so inclined can also download my little template here.
Help out by making some badges for the challenge! They can be symbolic, iconic, or just cool looking.
Please keep the picture on it clear and homemade. When you're done, PM them to me as PNG-24 with transparency.


This challenge will run from Saturday January 9th and conclude on Sunday February 7th. That's 30 days time.
Challenge #2 will start on February 8th most likely. We'll let you know if that changes.

EDIT:
The challenge between the above dates has ended.
Challenge #2 will continue here (click here).
Everyone can feel free to use the thread for commentary and discussion. Please don't abuse this. Obviously.



What we want out of you is just one drawing each day for one month.

Post whatever you can come up with. That's your doodles, paintings, sketches. Whether you're using a mouse in paint, a pen tablet with photoshop, or a pencil-paper-scanner scheme. It's all good.

Pretty much the only rule is that your drawing has to have been created recently for the challenge itself. So no old stuff.
ADDENDUM: It'd be a good idea not to go nuts with the file size either. If you can't make it much smaller or sacrifice some of the image quality, post a thumbnail and link somewhere offsite for the full image.


In one month (thirty days after the challenge begins) we will count up everyone's stuff.
Those who have completed the challenge will receive a badge they can show off in their signature.

This is for practice and experience too. That's invaluable, and it goes a long way.
Experiment, challenge yourself to draw something out of your league, entertain the forum with your artistic wit.


Try not to fall too far behind. If you think you'll have problems keeping up, just try to give yourself five minutes out of the day to draw something, anything.
You may be allowed to catch up if you miss a day or two, but don't disappear for too long.

Please try to enter by at least the first week. Those that do join in a little late should post several drawings to catch yourself up to everyone else, one for each day you missed.


We aim to keep the challenges rolling. When this one ends, the next one starts up.
We might have a theme in one of the later months, possibly. We'll see how it all goes.


No sign-up necessary. Start whenever you're ready.
So get cracking, people!

EDIT: Credits to Flisch for the idea, conferring with GD and myself to come up with a solid method of bringing it to you guys.
I'm just the topic creator guy.  :-*

Alright, guys. We're open and ready for business. Let's have it.
I'll post later on after others have gotten it going.

Some of these aliens get their first look at humans at LiS Immigration Processing Asteroid.



Great idea for a comp! I'm so bloody tired of drawing after the last assignment at uni, but this is totally different.

No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.

After seeing this video, specifically around the 1:40 mark (I don't know why either), I got inspired and drew this:

The bottom guy was just trying out a side perspective. After drawing the head too large, I decided to make it a hat instead of erasing it. It seemed a bit empty though, so I just started drawing stuff on it. I don't know what all of it is for, but it looks interesting.

I know I'm a day late for the challenge, I'll try to get an extra drawing in either Monday or at the end of that week.
