Post Monthly Challenges • Posted: Thu Dec 20, 2012 4:54 pm
I would like to try having a monthly challenge. Some sort of drawing challenge would be issued for the last week of the month, and whoever would like to go for it, can go for it. I'm looking for suggestions whilst I draw up the calendar.

Examples:
- Draw a thousand figure sketches
- Everyone does the same still life
- DRAW A HORSE

Discuss.

Having challenges would be an excellent way for people to actually start drawing without having to mumble about not having inspiration on what to draw.

Challenges would be fun I think. It would help us get better at drawing certain things that we might have troubles with. In fact, that can be one of the challenges: "Draw something for one month that you have troubles drawing".

Draw 25 hands in 25 different ways. :P

Everyone needs to have practice with hands...I was going to include feet, but I usually find feet particularly easy to draw, but perhaps that's just me. *shrug*

Ugh hands.. I dislike drawing them. That would be a good challenge for sure since I always have problems with them

Right. I've been really busy so I haven't really had much time to go over this. The challenge will be valid for the entire month. When you are done, just post your drawing in your thread and the challenge thread as well. While I use the word 'drawing', this can also go hand in hand with painting as well. These challenges are not required, but it would be fun if everyone attempted them. At least if you're whining about a lack of inspiration, you can get off your butt and do the monthly challenge.

January: Baseline Drawing - This is something you want to improve by the end of the year. Be it anatomy, drawing from memory, creature design, speed painting etc. This months challenge is a baseline drawing. You will do a similar one at the end of the year to see how much you have improved.

February: Draw 25 Hands in 25 Different Poses

March: Draw something you have never drawn before

April: Still Life Drawing. Everyone does a still life drawing.

May: Draw a video game character you have never drawn before.

June: Throwdown Month (You are challenged by someone to draw something)

July: Thousand Figure Month. Draw a thousand quick figure sketches.

August: DRAW A HORSE IN THE BADDEST WAY POSSIBLE

September: ??? Suggestions?

October: ??? Suggestions?

November: ??? Suggestions?

December: Baseline Drawing. Whatever you tried to draw back in January, try again to see how much you have improved.

What about drawing with a different medium? Instead of pencil, use charcoal or paint?

I wouldn't mind drawing a pokemon. How bout DC chooses a pokemon and then we have to imagine what their evolution would look like.

What about a request challenge? Draw things or a thing requested by others no matter how ridiculous it might be.

TOP has a good idea, and it could be either requested to a specific person, or to everyone. Anyways, are we a LoZ forum or aren't we? Why is there no topic for THAT? XD
