July art challenge: julike

    Day 1. An animal you like.

    I spent about an hour total. Did a few loose sketches, then decided on this girl relaxing with her morning coffee. Boring background. Hah. Made a video, just need to figure out how to edit it. Has anyone used DaVinci Resolve? Just downloaded it.

  • @CLCanadyArts Haha this is great 🙂
    My boyfriend uses Davinci resolve and he loves it, says it's a lot easier than Adobe Premiere, sorry that's no help haha! He says the newest version does tend to crash so save often 😛

  • @CLCanadyArts Is day 1 the same for everyone, I mean the topic: Day 1. An animal you like.
    I confirmed my email, but didn't get any new topic.

  • @MichaelaH Yes I assume so!

    @hannahmccaffery It's confusing, and it just crashed. Haha, I'll figure it out.

    @MichaelaH Prompts are the same for everyone. I haven't gotten an e-mail yet either. I saw the topic for day 2 on the main website, but the previous topics aren't shown for some reason.. I caught a glimpse of it before the day switched. I believe it was, "An animal you like".

    @Julike-Challenge The previous days prompts should stay up somewhere. We haven't received an e-mail with the prompt, and our given answers.I feel Inktober's prompt list style is best. All laid out, and late comers or busy people can catch up.

    Personally I like to work on multiple prompts per day.

  • @CLCanadyArts Oh no! I think it's a bug with the latest version so hopefully they'll update it soon to fix the problem! I'll ask him if there are any good tutorials online on how to use it for you 🙂

  • @CLCanadyArts You're totally right, I forgot to add the previous prompt on the website!

    As for the emails, they are sent out each morning, so if you subscribe after they are already sent out you won't directly get a mail with the current & previous prompts.
    But every mail has the daily prompt + all the previous prompts in it so you only have to wait 1 day when you missed one.

    I don't think I can change that at the moment, it is how Mailchimp works. (unless I manually send a mail when new people subscribe, but unfortunately I don't have that much time to do that at the moment). Thanks for the feedback!

    As for your first drawing, clean linework, I like it!

    @Julike-Challenge Thank you.

    Honestly I think a fully fleshed out 31 day prompt list would be nice, and simpler. Maybe I'm just impatient. 🙂

    Planning on making an IG page for julike?

  • And the topic for yesterday: The animal you like, is it the animal I wrote while I was subscribing? Or why did I filled all this questions?

    @MichaelaH Yeah, it's whatever you answered the question with, but the prompts seem to be out of order from the questionnaire. I took a screenshot of all my answers so I can look back. Not that it matters, no one is going to hold you to the answers you gave, as no one will see them but you.

    @Julike-Challenge Today's prompt is messed up. "the main character from your one of your favorite movies"

  • @CLCanadyArts Ohhh I didn't realise that you used the answers to the questions, I don't really remember what I put now haha! @Julike-Challenge can we draw anything or is it based on your answers?

  • @hannahmccaffery I also don't remember and I filled it some hours ago...ha ha ha

  • @hannahmccaffery From what I understand, you could either 1)check the daily prompt on the website and you would see "Day 1: an animal you like," or 2) fill up the questionnaire and sign up, in which case you'd get a personalised email saying "Day 1: elephant" if that's what you answered. It's okay if you don't remember your answers, hehe.

    My understanding is that the personalised prompts you'll get emailed to you daily will all draw from the answers you've already given on your questionnaire.

    I didn't receive my day 1 prompt immediately. I received it together with my day 2 prompt on 2nd July (as per my timezone, anyways). You'd likely get your personalised prompts tomorrow. 🙂

  • Hi everyone, I will try to clarify here:

    The form is to make it easier for you, most of the following prompts/challenges will be like today's: 'the main character from one of your favorite movies'.
    It will automatically fill in 'one of your favorite movies' with the response you filled in the form, that's why the order doesnt' matter. (If you noticed, the number of questions is less than the number of days in july).

    The emails are being sent out automatically in the morning, that's why you didn't receive one yet if you subsribed after that moment.
    But I just sent the second day mail again for all new subscribers.

    Sorry for the confusion, this is the first time I am doing this and I thought it would be the easiest with automated mails...

    As for a full list, I did think about it, but somehow it preferred not to do it to keep things more exciting I guess? As I said, most of the following prompts won't be straight up your answers from the form, it will be a bit more creative 😉

    Anyway, thanks for participating, I'll see if I can set up an official Instagram account, then I can feature some drawings from the challenge as well 🙂

  • @Julike-Challenge Sounds good, thank you for clearing it all up 🙂
    Thank god you do remind us of our answers in the email as I've completely forgotten all of mine haha!

  • @Julike-Challenge

    I wish I was here for this month, maybe near the end I will try one.
