I'm amazed with the amount of people interested in joining the challenge. It must be started today in order to be finished next Wednesday. If you can't join for any reason, don't worry! I'll be doing more Drawing Challenges in the future.
What's a 7 Days Drawing Challenge?
The challenge is drawing 7 different things based on 7 themes I will give you guys. A drawing a day. I know it may sound a bit tiring but the objective is to keep yourself inspired during 7 days in a row. The more you draw, the more you'll feel like drawing!
What about the Rules?
The only rule is that you have to draw (and submit) something each day. NO CHEATING! It doesn't matter the media nor the art style. That means it can be traditional or digital. The style may be realistic, manga/anime, cartoon, etc. It may be a Black&White artwork but it has to be a final piece. Oh! Don't forget to mention me with "365-DaysOfDoodles" so it will pop up into my messages and I'll be able to see the artwork!
I'm not one of those wealthy guys on dA so I'll try my best:
o - Everyone joining the challenge will receive a llama badge.
o - I'll feature everyone who completes the 7 days challenge on a journal entry. A Hall of Fame I'll proudly put on my profile page.
(thank you Blazingocean for the suggestion!)
o - I'll choose 7 of the best and most creative projects and reward them with a free request doodle.
o - Top 2 projects will receive 200 points!!
(points courtesy of stargirl143, thank you very much!)
The 7 themes are:
Day 1 - Selfie! You have to draw yourself
Why? I think drawing yourself is a very deep experience. It requires observation and a sincere point of view of the artist. You'll choose what features you like the most about you and the ones you're not very comfortable with. It's an exercise of self knowledge. It doesn't have to be realistic! Any style is allowed
Day 2 - Draw something related to the ocean
Well, this one is me having fun with this challenge. If you know my work for some time you know that I draw a lot sea-related doodles. I want to see what you guys will come up with.
Day 3 - Draw your favorite mythical creature
I did a mythical creatures series of doodles a while ago. I drew some of the most popular mythical creatures. Now it's your turn to draw your favorite one!
Day 4 - Gender swap a famous character
It's recently very trendy to change the gender of one's favorite characters. I did few of these and I can say it's helpful to notice what makes a male character and what makes a female one. The character may be from TV series, movies, anime/manga, comics, graphic novels and such.
Day 5 - Pick your favorite song's title. That's the title of your drawing
This one is to make you think! I know that it may sound very abstract, that's why I have great expectations on what you guys will come up with this one. Btw I've used this technique on several doodles. (:
Day 6 - Mix inanimate beings with animated ones
Blend an animal with an object. The more they are blend the better!
Day 7 - Draw the humanized form of something
This one is also to make things difficult! It can be the human form of your favorite food, place, animal, object, pokemon or whatever else you can think of.
