MEMBERSHIP OPEN TO EVERYONE!



ANYONE is welcome to join the DAILY SKETCH CHALLENGE group! Check the group's Journal every day--Monday through Friday for a new subject to draw and post your drawing of that subject each day!

A quick run down... you dedicate about 30 min to a sketch on a day's subject. You cant just submit any old sketch and it's best not to submit finished work (although it probably won't be rejected). The idea of the Group is to promote warm-up sketching to free your limbs and prepare you for better work right after or even to create roughs for future use as finished pieces. Hope that makes sense. :)

The Daily Sketch Challenge DA Group is an off-shoot of the DSC at Outcast Studios' Forums www.outcaststudios.com/forums where members have been participating for years. Now we're branching out to DA in an effort to catalog the participation and bring this great tool to other artists.

Cheers!

Shevaun Haldane originally worked as an scientist for Mys-Tech, studying chaos theory alongside her father, until discovering Mys-Tech's ties to Mephisto after witnessing the dark being kill her father for attempting to betray the arrangement Mephisto had with Mys-Tech.
Shevaun then saw the Angel of Death as it came to collect her father's soul, only for it to come too late as Mephisto had already taken it. The Angel then informed Shevaun of the truth behind Mys-Tech, and offered her a shred of the fabric of the universe in order to give her the power to oppose Mys-Tech's evil. Shevaun was also granted a special high-tech suit of body armor to help her control the great power she now wielded.

As Dark Angel, Shevaun then devoted her life to taking down Mys-Tech and its operatives across the Earth, through other dimensions, and even in the afterlife.

Shevaun Haldane first appeared as Hell's Angel in July 1992's Hell's Angel #1. Due to legal threats however from the Hells Angels biker club, both Shevaun and her comic book were renamed Dark Angel with issue #6. Alongside this renaming, the lawsuit was settled by Marvel agreeing to pay $35,000 as a charitable gift to the Ronald McDonald House in the name of both Marvel and the Hells Angels.

Today’s challenge is to draw Dark Angel for approximately 30 minutes!

The deadline for this challenge is Friday, August 1, 2014 at 2pm ET (U.S.).

Hannibal Lecter is a fictional character in a series of suspense novels by Thomas Harris.



Lecter was introduced in the 1981 thriller novel Red Dragon as a forensic psychiatrist and cannibalistic serial killer. The novel and its sequel, The Silence of the Lambs, feature Lecter as one of the primary antagonists after the two serial killers in both novels. In the third novel, Hannibal, Lecter becomes a protagonist. His role as the antihero occurs in the fourth novel, Hannibal Rising, which explores his childhood and development into a serial killer.



The first film adapted from the Harris novels was Manhunter (based on Red Dragon) which features Brian Cox as Lecter, spelled "Lecktor". In 1991, Anthony Hopkins won an Academy Award for his portrayal of the character in The Silence of the Lambs. He would reprise the role in Hannibal in 2001 and in a second adaptation of Red Dragon made in 2002 under the original title.



In February 2012, NBC gave a series order to Hannibal, a television adaptation of Red Dragon to be written and executive-produced by Bryan Fuller. Mads Mikkelsen plays Lecter, opposite Hugh Dancy as Will Graham



All media in which Lecter appears portray him as intellectually brilliant, cultured and sophisticated, with refined tastes in art, music and cuisine. He is well-educated and speaks several languages. He is frequently depicted preparing gourmet meals from his victims' flesh, the most famous example being his admission in the film adaptation of The Silence of the Lambs that he once ate a census taker's liver "with fava beans and a nice Chianti". He is deeply offended by rudeness, and frequently kills people who have bad manners. Prior to his capture and imprisonment, he was a member of Baltimore, Maryland's social elite, and a sitting member of the Baltimore Philharmonic Orchestra's board of directors.

In The Silence of the Lambs, Lecter is described through protagonist Clarice Starling's eyes: "small, sleek, and in his hands and arms she saw wiry strength like her own". The novel also reveals that Lecter's left hand has a condition called mid ray duplication polydactyly, i.e. a duplicated middle finger. In Hannibal, he performs plastic surgery on his own face on several occasions, and removes his extra digit. Lecter's eyes are a shade of maroon, and reflect the light in "pinpoints of red".He has small white teeth and dark, slicked-back hair with a widow's peak. He also has a keen sense of smell; in The Silence of the Lambs, he is able to identify through a plate glass window the brand of perfume that Starling wore the day before.

Today, you are challenged to draw Dr. Hannibal Lecter for about 30 minutes!

The deadline for this challenge is Thursday, July 30, 2014 at 2pm ET (U.S.)!

His Divine Majesty King Groot the 23rd is an alien known by the Kree as a Floral Colossus, though this species was once thought extinct. He was first seen when he landed on Earth and threatened humanity as one of the Marvel Monsters in the Marvel Age of Monsters. He was however soon defeated by a clever human which caused Groot to flee Earth once more. He was not heard from for many years after his initial encounter with humanity.

Groot was created by Dick Ayers, Stan Lee and Jack Kirby and first appeared in Tales To Astonish 13 (1960).

Much of Groot's dialogue is merely him saying "I am Groot!" again and again, which, strangely, allows him to function as comic relief. In Guardians of the Galaxy #17, Lord Maximus reveals that while it may sound as if Groot is only able to say "I am Groot!" he is actually saying quite a bit more. He can only say the same phrase because of the condition of his larynx, to truly understand him "you must listen to the sigh of breeze beneath it. The nuance of meaning." Groot is also extremely intelligent with extensive knowledge of quasi-dimensional engineering.

Today, you are challenged to draw Groot for about 30 minutes!

The deadline for this challenge is Wednesday, July 30, 2014 at 2pm ET (U.S.)!

I put a colored pic of my Dolphin Picture in the "Developed Sketches" folder. I wasn't sure where to put it, or if you would want it posted to the group. Thanks

I think it would've been fine in the regular folder too, but Developed fits if that's where you want it.

I added a sketch of Giant man, and it's still awaiting approval. Did I upload it to the wrong spot? I just wanted to make sure I didn't mess up. Thanks!

You may have--try uploading to "Daily Sketches 2014" if that wasn't where you first submitted.  If it was, I may have to check out the problem.
