Can anyone tell me, where SCBWI announce their drawthis prompts?

RE: Unfinished or loose - lighting & mood critique
I love it! It says a lot with a little. Nice and simple, nice clean style. Love the muted palette.
RE: Under the weather
@NessIllustration I feel your pain, my wife is full time freelance graphic and web design and often runs into this problem. She says that sometimes when she tries too hard the ideas don’t come.
Just a few ideas.
Would it help if you shared your wips with someone?
Have you tried just doodling (thats a good starting point for me when I’m properly stuck)
Watching or reading comedies also works for me and my partner.
(Would making a ‘to do’ list help)
Are you being over critical, over analytical? (I can get like this)
Hope this helps in some way.
Let us know how you get on
....and very best of luck
RE: I Got Glasses, But Still Having Eye Problems from Time on Computer/Ipad Screens
I don’t know how to help but I have terrible floaters too. They used to really annoy me, but I think most people have them. I wonder if spending your days looking intently at images and artwork brings them to your attention more. (I also get eye twitches)
RE: Evil Poodle - Critique
@Chip-Valecek that looks like a Ray Harryhausen style dog.
If you’re still after critical feedback I wondered what would happen if the blue of the saliva was toned back so it was less saturated. Would it make the flame on the tail look brighter? Would the saliva still look wet? Is this the effect you want?
Or is the saliva glowing and giving off its own light? If it is how would this bounce off the mouth and teeth.
Cool pick Chip. Love the concept and the cold blue flame and the glowing eyes. Now I have to try and sleep
RE: The Moment Before My Mom Left WIP
@Squirrelsize I really like the first one of the second set of thumbnails you did the most. I think this is because I get more of a sense of peace from the scene. I suppose it’s the more reclined pose of the squirrels, they just look more comfortable and together.
I’m sure your image will be just beautiful, with your sweet textured graphic style and limited palette.
I would love to see your finished peace.
