Playing around with simple dog like creatures. Maybe some pyramids. Not too sure what the end piece will look like yet.
Always looking to learn more, and get feedback:
My 100 day goal is to get myself to start creating more. I find myself getting drowned in studies a lot and i'm hoping to start forcing myself to create more. If you see a lot of horrible creations with bad paint jobs from me don't be scared, its just me getting out of my comfort zone hahah
So every tens days i hope to have a new creation of a different subject matter.
My goals for the first ten days is to design a pirate and their ship. Im not sure whether this will be sci fi based or classic type yet. To start with, here are some studies i did of other artists work just to get into the feel of pirate type stuff. Might do some imagination drawings tomorrow then some real life ref sketches

These are the concept thumbnails for what I will be working on for the next 50 days. I wanted to do a larger polyptych, I thought of doing the seven sins but - it seems like something that's been done a lot so I've picked something a bit more obscure. Hippocrates four temperaments are melancholic, sanguine, phlegmatic and choleric - each has a colour and a season associated with it. All four of them share a similar background so my first 10 days I'm going to work on developing that since I really struggle with rock textures.
My first Goal is to go out of my comfort zone, and do many hand studys.
And on day 10 i draw one beautifule looking hand from mind.
^Rist: Sadly I believe so D: (The timer has begun countdown). You can still participate, just not officially
Hello everyone! My goal with participating is to be able to have 10 completed pieces, and make it to the end of the challenge successfully. This will be my first time competing in a CA challenge.
I have yet to actually complete a painting or be able to RENDER a piece, beyond a sketch. I always end unfinished and unsatisfied. I would love to develop this necessary skill (to be able to complete a painting with good comp, values, color, etc) and have my artistic skill reach professional level.
I'm hoping this challenge will help get me there and force me to have more initiative to reach this goal of mine. Thanks for taking the time to read the entire thing Looking forward to participating with you all.
-The first day I went a bit over the top because I was so excited haha. I am still not sure which composition is good.
-I am unfamiliar with armor so I worked on a bunch of armor studies because I know I will want that in my piece.
-I am also unsure if I want to keep this piece solely to imagination with doing studies beforehand or to reference throughout the piece. This decision will greatly affect the quality of the result. I'm leaning towards not referencing to gain the most out of my time.
-And I think I will format images bigger next upload
The only imagination are the thumbnails, everything else are studies
My goal main goal for this project is to get more familiar with my wacom tablet. I download photoshop and is already having bad lagging on my computer. (Working on problem right now)
For next ten day, I would like to design a female OC. I already wrote down some notes on how I would like her to be and some poses. ( I practice 35 min. I will try make better header next time, sorry.)

Overall goal: Make portfolio pieces while designing a world involving Samurai, Mechs, and spirits. Each piece should describe a part of the world or its inhabitants.
Goal for several weeks: Design characters for this world.
More details to come...this is a fast post because I'm traveling today and was worried I might not have Internet later to post.
Hi all! Here's day one from me.
My long-term goal is to push my lighting, rendering, design work, and of course work ethic. I will be focusing on highly rendered concepts and marketing art to boost my portfolio and develop a personal story project I have been working on. I'm not sure what each piece will be yet, but I want to do at least one of each type of concept: character, creature, vehicle, environment, prop.
Very excited about this challenge!!
My goal is to improve on lighting and color, so to focus on that I've decided to go with 10 fan art pieces, each in my own style and with different light and color settings!
So far my first piece would be mikasa from attack on titans!

1.)Creating character illustrations good enough for portfolio.
2.)try to squeeze in a 3D model of the characters.
I need to get my 3D skills better so this is a good opportunity to do so.
Initial sketch (apx an hour). More tomorrow

My goal for the next 100 days is to study how to draw architecture, characters, props and environments using both digital and traditional tools. To start building my visual library by study proportions, lines, shapes, volumes, values and colour.
I partly join this challenge to figure out if I have the interest and/or what it takes to work in the entertainment industry sometimes in the future, and this seems like a great opportunity to start my journey and hopefully cure my laziness.
For the next 10 days I have chosen to study Pagodas architecture to familize myself in both the process below and using my tablet.
(1) Collect reference material and create sketches from them
(2) Sketching from imagination
(3) Refine and emphasise design
(4) Finalize a design
Not particular happy about the result, if you count the time it took. Drawing with the wacom tablet is hard and I will proberbly continue sketching from reference two more days before moving on to (2) skeching from imagination.
My goal for the following 100 Days is to have loads of fun drawing. FUN is the word.
I will only compile and submit my studies right before the deadline for the day and will keep posting in my sketchbook at regular/whatever intervals and keep having fun in the process. My aim is to not get too technical or panic over my approach, relax, study and have fun drawing with a clear vision in mind.
To those who are watching this challenge, thank you for choosing to follow our progress and to those who are participating: Let’s have fun everybody.
Around 40min-60min ?
I'm gonna try and do some female warrior character and starting out with thumbnailing something. Gonna try and finish the character in 10 days but I'm going to leave it black and white. And yeah.. kind of new to this whole thumbnailing, don't know what the crap I'm doing. Gonna carry on with it tomorrow.
To learn digital painting .. here is a sketch which will be painted in the next 9 days in deferent styles..

Hey everyone! I'm trying this out for the first time. I do a lot of sketching but I've never taken it to the next step of actual realistic painting, so that's what I hope to accomplish through this challenge. I'm starting off with a character painting, so today here are some drawings developing ideas. I'm not really too sold on any of them yet though.
My Sketchbook (crits appreciated)
so this is only kind of a personal piece. somebody that i owe big time asked for an "abstract pelican" painting. not really my jam, but i don't mind having to paint it so it's going to be my first challenge project. final will by acrylic on canvas. for today, just did some studies of pelican shape and flight. sorry 4 shit quality
This is for the "100 day art challenge".My first project will be an anime character drawn from reference.
Hello I'm going to upload finished drawing every Thursday.
The first one will be a dragon inside a sphere.

is it still possible to join 100days of art
Hello everyone That is a great challenge witch I hope will help me to be more consistent and more patient, my problem is that most of the time I finish painting as soon as I put my idea on paper, planning to change that
With this one I wanted to be a Facebook cover image and that was the idea from the start , then I was figuring out what the theme could be, and I have decided to be a Game of Thrones themed image. Had an idea for the pose, just figuring out how to make it more loose and natural, these are from imagination , found few main references, and decided which colours to use. Next step will be finalising the sketch with help of references and anatomy.
Hi everyone !
100 Days Goal : To be able to paint characters correctly (ahah ).
10 Days Goal : To do some anatomical studies (especially male) and be able to paint a full body character.
It does not start well because i can't scan properly my traditionnal studies. I hope i will fix the problem by tomorrow !
Anyway, this is a quick study (45 - 60 min) done in photoshop. Really need to practice a lot !
Aims: by the end of 100 days I'd really like to have produced 10 pages of a comic. My aim is for each page to have between 3-6 panels. I'd like to get more creative with how I'm laying out pages, in particular become more confident with panels and backgrounds.
-Use backgrounds (try to avoid empty space behind character)
-Character design work
-Challenge myself to do more dynamic panel layouts
-Rough character sketches
