July's Challenge - Week 4: People
Update: Week 4 is here! You have until Friday to get your sketches in. Anyone can join in, even if you missed the first week. Huge shoutout to 42Ly, Dahkur, and LadyKylin for completing week 3.
Hi folks! It's July, and this month's challenge is going to be a fun one. This month, you are all tasked with doing some life studies! By the time this month is out, you'll be art-ing like nobody's business. Let's start this first week with something that's both incredibly common in art...and terribly intimidating. Hands!
What you will need:
Pen/Pencil and Paper. This challenge should be done traditionally (not digitally). You don't need fancy pens or paper, either. Use a napkin, if you want! :B
A watch to time yourself. You can use a stopwatch on your phone if have one, or any number of free stopwatches on the internet. Or even just a regular watch or clock.

Speed painting challenge!
Hey guys!
I've really been into speed painting lately, so I wanted to challenge myself. And also you!
The idea of a speed painting is that you take a limited amount of time for a painting. This can be half an hour, or up to two hours, depending how much time you have (and are willing to spend). During that time you make a painting, or get as far as possible. When you reach the time limit, the painting is done. No getting back to it. No cheating. It's done.
How?
:bulletred: Use any medium. I use digital, because it's fast and clean. But you can use traditional as well.
:bulletred: Use references if needed. Don't forget; References are GOOD!!!
:bulletred: Take these tips and tricks to heart.
:bulletred: Take 1 to 2 hours per painting. Not more. Don't cheat.

Paul Stamets
Haven't done a portrait of Paul Stamets for quite some while. It was great painting him again.

Happy Valentine's
I know ...it's tacky as hell and with the heart really not my style Sweating a little...  But I couldn't resist this opportunity to draw my most beloved virtual couple in the world.

Thank you, Discovery
This sunday/monday the season finale of Star Trek - Discovery is airing. The show was a real rollercoaster ride for me. I can't remember the last time I have been so emotionally effected by something virtual. Discovery pushed all the right buttons with me (and some wrong ones ... I never ever again want to hear the sound of the neck snapping!). More than that, I found wonderful people on social media, talked about stuff I never talked before and learned to know new artists through DSC fanart. Also the interaction of members of the cast and Crew with us fans on Twitter was outstanding! I felt more alive and crazy in those last months than I did for a long time.

So this is my heartfelt Thank You for this wonderful show and everybody involved in it.

Power
These women are three of the many reasons why I adore Star Trek - Discovery.

The painting could have been better (cleaned and stuff), but my son's gotten sick and my day was a mess. And since I wanted it to upload to greet tonight's episode, it has to go like this.

I used the random number generator at www.random.org and the lucky number is: 12

Congratulations to MLP-HeartSong-FiM Clap :happybounce: La la la la 

Please contact me via note within the next week Heart 


Thank you so much to all participants. I appreciate your trust in me!

update: 01/12 - thanks so much for all the interest so far :hug: - anybody else? Only 3 more and I would give away 2 portrait paintings

--------------------------------


It's a New Year, I'm painting at the moment like I'm on some drugs - so why not use this impetus to do something for you (yes, you I mean)

LET'S SEE IF SOMEBODY IS INTERESTED!


How does it work?

anyone who is interested in a free portrait commission leaves a comment and I'll give you a number (1 to whatever number of particpants there will be).
The raffle is open until end of January 2018. Then I will create a random number using one of the randomizing programs to determine the winner.

If there are more than 15 participants I will create two numbers for two free portrait commissions.

What I can paint:

It will be a digital single colour portrait with quite simple background (have a look at my gallery to learn about the quality of my paintings)

For the moment I'd say I paint whomever you like (celebrities, characters, private people, humans, humanoids, animals - NO TECH), BUT I need a good reference photo (I will restrict that statement if the winner chooses something which is clearly out of my abilities ;) )

Who can participate?

Anyone. Watchers do get two numbers. 



Participation ends 31th January 2018
