7 Days Drawing Challenge! (closed)

Wed Jun 18, 2014, 8:49 AM
Here we go! Firstly, I know time zones may be a problem. It's Wednesday 18, June, 13:00 o'clock where I live. The challenge starts counting from now on. Thankfully, DeviantART lets me know when the deviation was submitted. (:

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.

Bullet; Blue 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!

Bullet; Blue 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!

Bullet; Blue Prizes! UPDATE!
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:

:bulletblue: 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

:bulletblue: 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.

:bulletblue: 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!

:bulletblue: 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.

:bulletblue: 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. (:

:bulletblue: Day 6 - Mix inanimate beings with animated ones

Blend an animal with an object. The more they are blend the better!

:bulletblue: 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.

If you have any questions regarding the challenge or themes please let me know on the comments. Game's on!

I know I'm extremely late on this (I'm really sorry!), but only last week I finally managed to complete and upload the last two days. I've always mentioned you in the descriptions but I don't know if that worked out correctly so, as promised, I'm now linking you my entries all at once (didn't want to spam you day per day). You can see all my submissions here:… I'm not too happy with them, some of the themes were something I would have never draw spontaneously, but I tried XD And it was fun :) (Oh, also sorry for the bad quality, they're just crappy phone pictures but I will upload scan versions as soon as I can!) I will now take my time to go through all the other people entries, it's interesting to see what everyone came up with! :) Thank you very much for holding this challenge, can't wait for the next one! :D

P.S. You know what would have been reeeaaaally cool? I know that only the dA stuff can give out badges different from llamas, but wouldn't it have been amazing if you could be able to give out, instead of llamas, a "familiar cat badge"? Ahahah just a weird idea that came up to my mind and I had to share XD
