@flordevitaz I really love your style! You're village is very cool looking!
Here is my final piece for the challenge.
I starting to do the silhouettes and I absolutely love the idea, I was even sitting at work today waiting to go home so I could finish my first building design. I plan to ultimately do about 25 buildings and create a whole city overlook piece. But here is my first concept pieces.
One thing I also want to do afterwards is come up with outside objects for the town, and draw a bunch of little things that can fill empty space in the streets or other open areas that will present themselves when I get closer to my final project.
I hope to one day be chosen as well but I know I definitely have a lot to work on. I like the contests/challenges more because if I am ever in a month where I don't know what to create, I can look to the monthly challenge prompt.
Also I think it's super awesome to see what the prompt is and just see how many different pieces come out of it. I hope they don't stop regardless of who is top 3 and the honorable mentions!
Fell a bit behind on this because I came down with some sickness and also ended up working OT at the same time! But everything here is layered out and ready to be rendered. I attempted a different approach to this picture by layering out all the individual buildings and areas.
Also I totally wasn't happy with my initial sketches and decided to draw a mushroom village based on a real village so this was the image I used to get what I have

there is a fun little app from Jazza (Draw with Jazza) called Arty Games. I think it's like 4$ but it does amazing for randomizing ideas for characters to environments, giving you prompts to draw. It comes as like a party game with a timer and all but you can just set the timer to indefinite. Or do what I have done and use it for the ideas and keep randomizing until you get ones you like!
@tombarrettillo Thanks! I wish I checked back earlier but I have been busy with OT at work. The seagulls would have been a cool addition. I will have to keep it in mind when I finish all my pages and go back through for any final edits!
I don't plan to have anything to graphic so it could be for children as well. But my initial audience mindset is more young adult/adult .I want to have it ready for print by February but ultimately it needs to be good to go by September and with me physically, because I got a booth at our Portland Comic Con. Which is my first one and I'm pretty excited.
Here is the current "final" anchor.
So I started out thinking Pirate octopus would be super cool! Then Pirate Octopus digging up treasure... But I was never happy with how it looked. So I ended up landing on what I'm calling Shoptopus. I just have to add my base colors then do my paint over after I am happy with my base.. But here is my WIP so far, what do you all think?
Hey all! It certainly has been a while since I have posted anything or even checked in on the monthly challenges. I haven't had any days off work in quite a long time aside from a scheduled out of state travels for a couple days. However with all the Overtime I worked I managed to buy the newest Huion Display drawing tablet and it has been great so far, I wanted to share a piece I did to kind of test it out/get used to using it. I re-worked one of my earlier pieces from when I started doing digital art, what I called the Altar of Peace at the time. Now I think I am just calling it Piece - with a hint of Tiny Demon.
Feel free to let me know what you think!
And here is the side by side comparison of the first one I did in 2016 compared to this new one now.
I recently got the newest Huion, KAMVAS Amazon Link. And it has been fantastic so far! You can't lower it to a flat 180 degrees without some wobble but any of the other angle settings and it is super sturdy. It doesn't have the same tech as Wacom in the pens so you get a rechargable pen that you have to "adjust" to the screen by touching certain points. I was skeptical about that the most, but as long as you setup the tablet at the angle you are comfortable with it should be fine, I haven't had any issues with it. I am definitely glad I made the purchase, and haven't had any complaints so far.
Posting this in the right area this time!
Hey everyone! I'm Jason Kilthau, I have been watching Will Terry on YouTube for a while now and this last month or so I finally joined up with SVS and created a forum account. I've up until this week when I saw the June contest just been scrolling through and looking at other peoples work (You're all amazing btw)
I work full time, but I have been pushing myself to grow as an artist since the beginning of 2016, when I decided to go digital. I'll probably be a slow poster for a while, but I'm hoping to share my work with all of you as you all share with everyone else too.
I have drawn a lot in the last year and a half. Though there are a couple pieces I made that I myself REALLY like, so I just wanted to get some feedback from the people here on those pieces! Please don't hold back, criticism, thoughts, etc. Thanks! Hope you like them as well!
So this took me about 3 hours. I wanted to finish a piece this morning before coming into work and this is what I came up with, what are your thoughts/suggestions for future stuff like this?
Below is the original post, but here is the almost completed final version, I will still definitely take critiques and advice but I most likely won't edit this further until the weekend, taking a break and starting another piece!
So moving on from a quick piece I did last week I wanted to take the robot character I created and do something better with him. This is one I'm taking my time on and wanting to get just right, trying to give the background a red wasteland feel and the robot/plants a cooler green blue. This is just my rough stages still so far but I would like to see what kind of critique I could get from some people. I don't plan on cluttering the image with too much but I do have a few more things for the foreground I have sketched up just not on this current phase.
