NEW MONTHLY CONTEST!! MERMAIDS! (MERMEN!)
Howdy! We love mermaids around here, and since it's MerMay, we thought it might be fun to do a little contest Post your best mermaid in this thread, and at the end of the month, we'll select a winner. 1st place gets an SVS tshirt, and your image splashed across our social media. We may do a collage or something of all the mermaids, so only submit if you are OK with it being posted (we'll give you credit of course!). OK, any questions? Let's do this!
December Illustration Contest: Star Wars
OK, all you padawans! Time for another contest!
The new prompt for December takes place a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away. This month we want you to redesign 4 characters from the Star Wars saga. This contest is like The Wizard of Oz one we did a while back, except Star Wars instead
-Redesign ANY 4 characters from the Star Wars saga. We don’t need a background on this one, so don’t waste time there. This one is a character design challenge.
-You are free to explore any style you like. Don’t worry about keeping it to animation or “concept art” style, etc. Have fun with it and use a style you like. One way to really get going on this assignment is to put the characters in different times in history. Steam punk, western, cave man, futuristic, Renaissance, etc, could all be options. Be creative and try to have fun with it. Put a fresh spin on these old characters that we know so well.
-We are looking for a cohesive style for the work. We are looking at how your design and pose convey character and emotion. Pose is extremely important for this one since you don’t have a background or scene to help tell the story.
-No Jedi mind tricks! We just want to see your art skills.
HOW TO ENTER:
-Use the force and draw something awesome.
-Post your FINAL illustration in this thread. KEEP THIS THREAD FOR FINAL IMAGES ONLY. If you want feedback on a WIP, create a new thread. It gets too confusing if it's all shown in one thread. Note: You will need to login into a Forum user account in order to post.
-Keep the file size no more than 1200 pixels on the longest side.
-Don’t forget to include your name AND SVS name ON THE IMAGE so we can give you credit! And if you want us to tag you, include your handle too. This saves us a lot of time in the end when we are trying to give credit. It also allows others to quickly see who did the work later if they grab your image for reference, etc.
-Also, only submit if you are OK with us posting your image on social media.
-Limit one entry per person.
-Post by Dec. 31 at the stroke of midnight!
-1st place: free one month subscription or T-shirt (your choice)
-2nd runner up: free one month subscription (you get a refund for that month if you are already a subscriber)
-honorable mentions: the chance to bask in the limelight
May the force be with you!
Live crit class for #draw50things! Enrolling now!
If you have tried the #draw50things challenge, and need some help, this is your chance to get feedback from the man who threw down the gauntlet, Will Terry himself!
The class will meet 3 times, at 8 pm PST on 4/5, 4/12 and 4/19. Enrollment is limited to 6. It’s a steal at $90
Please note: There is homework BEFORE the class starts! You need to watch the videos and draw at least one version before the first class starts on April 5. It’s a critique class, so you need to have work ready to be critiqued!
If the crit class fills up before you have a chance to enroll, don’t worry! Will will run it again in May, dates to be announced.

RE: ALL THESE LOVELY NEW INTERACTIVE CLASSES...BUT...
Just to clarify, we do have more videos on the way!
•Art licensing with Gina Jane
•Sketchbooks with Jake Parker
•Painting with Ana Daviscourt
The reason we made a big push to launch the interactive classes right now is because we're talking about doing them on a quarterly basis, and this is the beginning of the quarter. But we definitely plan on adding more videos to the subscription throughout the year : )

RE: OCTOBER CONTEST RESULTS!
@craig-imrie Hi! I see Chip responded back, but yes, the prompt is your own take on SLOW. It's in honor of Slowvember, which you can read about here:
The entries are due on the last day of the month (11/30). Be sure to post it in this thread for consideration:
Lee White is usually the judge, and he will post the winners+honorable mentions in the forum : )
You can see previous contests and winners on the news section of the website. Here's the link the previous winners (I'll be posting October's results soon!): https://forum.svslearn.com/topic/6610/november-competition-topic-slow
Try to keep the file size to 500 kb and be sure to put your svslearn name ON THE IMAGE so we can properly credit you. One entry per person only.
We'll be adding a page to the website with all the info about the contest so hopefully it's easier to track down.
Let me know if you have any other questions : )
