First off, congrats to Narmo for winning challenge #21, and giving us a cool mascot. I'll find a way to make it more official soon.
Anyone ages 13-19 may submit an entry at any time before the deadline. Please host your image on a remote image-hosting site instead of uploading it to the CA server. This makes it much easier to transfer it to the poll thread.
SPECIAL RULE - At the request of several people, this challenge will not be open to any medium. Rather, all entries must be drawn by hand in pencil or ink. The image must be drawn on paper of some kind, no digital drawings. You may digitally edit scans but only to adjust levels, don't digitally draw over them. No color either, use only regular black media so the focus remains on draftmanship.
Scene: Illustrate a scene from a novel or story
Rather self explanatory, just choose a scene or event from a book (preferably something most people will recognize) and draw it in the way you interpret it. For the description, include the title of the book you chose, and if you can, a brief excerpt of text from that book describing the scene you chose. Considering that this challenge is pencil/ink only, think of your drawing as if it could be an illustration for a new edition of the book you chose.
Special thanks to Keng for the topic suggestion!

This is gunna be great, nice idea Plate, thank you.
Respect is the ultimate currency.
I think I'm going to enter this one, I'm 18 almost 19, that's still "teen" enough right?
edit: I might not have an entry, I think I might be doing the God TD, but I don't know. I'm bad about these, sorry.

I'll try to get in, good luck everyone !
"preferably" didn't mean that we have to, uh ? Well in fact I don't know what I'll choose yet, but...preferably something most people will recognize

No digital? but but... O_O Ah well, i'll see what i can scrap together
I'm in yayayay!
I do think that the topic is véry open. A sugestion is to maybe change the whole "any story/ novel" to "any fairytale" ?
Ah well it might be too late for that now, but who cares.
I'm totally up for the pencil/ ink stuff. Wanted to do more ink stuff anyway.
@Blue Mech; yup, that's teen enough
how about, you can still draw in digital b/w. a lot of my digital sketches look like something scanned in....personally i'd probably draw this traditionally but some ppl just experiment better in ps or painter.
I edited the rules to clarify some things. Sorry to those of you who really prefer digital, but to make this challenge different as requested, I've gotta set some limits.
Correct, you won't be penalized in any way for choosing to illustrate something obscure, I just think the entries would be more interesting if they were mostly new interpretations of scenes we're familiar with.Originally Posted by Narmo
This sounds like fun, and I really like the pencil medium so I'll definitely have a crack at this. Then we'll get to see what's what when everyone doesn't have the crutch of photoshop
this is gonna be hard, I stopped reading when I started drawing.
And why do people keep asking "can I draw digitally", read the top, come on, what does it say.
this is gonna be hard, I dont like thgis topic
I'm in! I love to draw in big fat ink...oh baby I can't wait.

Cant wait to get started. Im looking at working with a classical Greco-Roman story/myth.
