    Hi guys, We will be judging last months contest (octopus) on friday of this week.

    Your new contest prompt is "OLD AND NEW"

    This one will be interesting to see what you come up with. Making something old into something new perhaps? something new into something old? Maybe a combination of the two. New stories mixed with old and vice versa. I seriously have no idea what I will see with this prompt. Looking to you to interpret it as you see fit! Just make it awesome!

    Post finished works in this thread. Post WIP images in separate threads.


  • Wow, this is a challenge. This will be fun to figure out. Thanks Lee!

  • Love this month's prompt. Please see my entry. I just finished it last week and I had the same idea of 'Old and New' in my head while working on it. I just shared it a couple hours ago in another thread 😀

    It was inspired by an old lady in the park. She was very old, in a wheelchair with large sunglasses trying to catch soap bubbles with some little kids around. Such an innocent moment.☺️

    Hope you like it. I can't wait to see the other entries 😀

  • I liked the open ended prompt this month. I love comics because they use simple art to serve a simple purpose: Storytelling. I love that they're disposable, that once they've told their story, they can be discarded. And I love that comics seem to have been bestowed with as inherent silliness. So, using traditional pen and ink, I went with a simple silent comic strip gag. Enjoy.

I was thinking of all the scenic drives my family and I have made here in the west that are now watched over by these silent giants. I am awestruck be the knowledge and work they represent and at the same time discussed at the sight of them breaking up God’s handiwork.

  • I'm super novice at digital drawing, as well as to SVS. I started using Procreate only about three weeks ago, so please go easy on me :)

    Old and new... hmmmmm... when I thought old, a beatbox came to mind, then I thought what is new 'relatively speaking' that could contrast that, I thought 'Amazon's Alexa'.

    I tried to convey the current news about 'Alexa' laughing out loud randomly' tied in with contrasting the old Beatbox. Trying to be current (contemporary) ( for the fancy art people) :)

    Really will appreciate some feedback/ideas/advice, I'm so ready to learn and grow.

    Is there anything more charming than the "old" tradition of the Kentucky Derby? It's a magical place where you can dream about the time that ladies get all dolled up to go out and gentlemen are just as dapper. Where does the "new" come in? Well, in welcoming new comers and being sweet as honey as you explain that wearing the hat brings good luck. And of course wearing the same hat and dress as the year before just won't do. Every lady loves to shop for her "new" attire that will just let her shine. The hat parade makes the derby "The two greatest minutes in sports."

    Sometimes hearing the explanations of people's work was the best part of a critique in school. This is a pattern design for spoonflower's "off to the races" challenge. Figured I would share. It fits in the theme? Right?
