So I joined this challenge on Conceptart.org. I WAS going to post a link but I think that will get my thread locked so, if you're interested, you will have to go find the challenge thread all by yourself!
I know this is not exactly DA-related, but I think it is a nice thing to share because some people (like me!) find challenges like this to be incredible useful. Besides, I would post all of my daily drawings on DA in my scraps folder : ).
Challenges are a way to kick yourself in the butt if you really need to improve on something, because after all, practice makes perfect.
Basically, every day you have to spend at least 30 minutes a day drawing and studying the subject (This time it is human anatomy and clothing!). You post your day's drawing on the contest's forum ever day before the day's timer runs out. If you fail to post your image one day, you're disqualified! If you can make it 100 days, or if you are the last man standing, you're the winner!
The fact that it is anatomy and clothing-based is freaking awesome, because those are the 2 things I probably need to improve on the most! Heck, even though I am more drawn to stylized art (Marvel, anime, cartoons, ect), having a solid foundation in anatomy will only make your art better.
Does this sound like a fun challenge to you? Join me, it will be awesome! It starts on Sept 16th, so don't wait too long to sign up! I want some buds to make sure I do it every day! We can make sure to post them every day to DA too!
