▬ Hello everyone! Since I don't have too much time to come up with challenges at the moment, I thought I would plug Anna Steinbauer's (depingo) challenge and make a thread for anyone who is participating. Her requirements are similar to ours here, so get the studies out!
OFFICIAL INFORMATION HERE
▬ Deadline: December 15th
- A comprehensive book on anatomy for humans and animals
- An hour-long 1-on-1 portfolio review/critique/mentoring session with Anna!
- A signed MtG artist proof of your choice with a personalized sketch on the back from Anna!
▬ Size: Any (no requirement)

This is a very vague theme, I know. But I want you to try and come up with something that will represent your own ideal ‘art job’ - something that you’ll have a lot of fun creating, something you can put in your portfolio, something that could be a part of a personal project or something you can send to clients (or potential clients) to give them a better idea of what kind of art you like to create.
▬ How to Win:
depingo wrote:The winner will be chosen based on how much work and effort they have put into both the studies and the finished painting, as well as on the progress made. Basically, this challenge is all about improving your art!
▬ Questions and answers:
depingo wrote:Q: Do I have to do studies to take part in the challenge?
Q: Do the studies have to be new and specifically created for this challenge?
A: Of course! The point is to improve! Please, please don’t cheat here - it’s not only unfair to the others taking part in the challenge, but also to yourself. Why would you cheat yourself out of an opportunity to improve your art? D.B.A.A.
Q: Does it have to be digital art?
A: Not at all! As long as it’s drawn/painted (and not photobashed or whatever), anything goes!
Q: Do I have to send my final painting to people as a holiday card?
A: It’s not a requirement. But the goal is to create something you’re proud of - your best work yet after all the work you’ve put into the studies - so why not show it off and wish people happy holidays at the same time?
Q: Can I submit my entry early?
A: By all means, be my guest!
Q: Why does the winner get an anatomy book? Shouldn’t the person with the least developed skills get something to learn with?
A: I’d like to think that the winner will be the person to show the biggest hunger to learn - therefore the one that would make the most out of a good book.
