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!

Bowser or King Koopa, is a video game character and the main antagonist of Nintendo's Mario franchise. In Japan, the character bears the title of Daimaō ( lit. "Great Demon King"). In the United States, the character was first referred to as "Bowser, King of the Koopa" and "The sorcerer-king" in the Super Mario Bros. instruction manual. Bowser is the leader and most powerful of the turtle-like Koopa race, and has been the greedy nemesis of Mario ever since his first appearance, in the game Super Mario Bros.

His ultimate goals are to marry Princess Peach, defeat Mario, and conquer the Mushroom Kingdom. Since his debut, he has appeared in almost every Mario franchise game, usually serving as the main antagonist. Bowser has been called "the most successful video game character".

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

The deadline for this challenge is Wednesday, September 3,  2014 at 2 PM ET (U.S.)!

American McGee's Alice is a third-person action video game with psychological horror elements released for PC on December 6, 2000. The game, developed by Rogue Entertainment and published by Electronic Arts, is an unofficial sequel to Lewis Carroll's Alice novels.

Shortly after Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There, at the age of seven, Alice Liddell witnessed the death of her family in an apparently accidental fire that broke out in her home, which was destroyed in the blaze. Suffering from survivor's guilt, Alice began to lose her grasp on reality and was ultimately sent to Rutledge Asylum, where she is observed and treated by Dr. Heironymous Wilson for her insanity and catatonia. Alice's only possession in Rutledge is a stuffed rabbit. Ten years after Alice was committed to Rutledge, she finds herself sucked back into a Wonderland that has been twisted by her own broken mind. The White Rabbit summons Alice to aid a radically altered Wonderland, which became a twisted version of itself as it came under the horrible rule of the Queen of Hearts. The Cheshire Cat serves as Alice's companion throughout the game, frequently appearing to guide her with cryptic comments.

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

The deadline for this challenge is Tuesday, September 2,  2014 at 2 PM ET (U.S.)!

Yesterday was Jack Kirby Day--Jack's Birthday--and so that got me to thinking about the weekend challenge and the combination of the two usually brings up all of the wonderful characters and creations of The King.  And so, for our purposes in the weekend challenge I usually come up with a duo or small team of characters so that they are manageable to portray in an extended challenge like the ones we do here.  For Jack Kirby that can mean many characters, worlds of characters even.  And that always makes me feel like I'm limiting the possibilities for those who may want to be more adventurous and go in a different direction.  So I'm going to offer up two choices...

First up is the FANTASTIC FOUR!  The FF was the first superhero team created by writer-editor Stan Lee and artist and co-plotter Jack Kirby, who developed a collaborative approach to creating comics with this title that they would use from then on.  As the first superhero team title produced by Marvel Comics, it formed a cornerstone of the company's 1960s rise from a small division of a publishing company to a pop-culture conglomerate.  Ever since their introduction, the Fantastic Four have been portrayed as a somewhat dysfunctional, yet loving, family. Breaking convention with other comic-book archetypes of the time, they would squabble and hold grudges both deep and petty, and eschewed anonymity or secret identities in favor of celebrity status.

Your first challenge/choice is to draw the Fantastic Four in a team/family shot together!

Your second challenge/choice is to draw any of the creations of Jack Kirby you please!  If you aren't sure what characters Jack Kirby had a hand in creating, I recommend Google or Wikipedia or any message board of note on the subject of comics (here is a good place to ask too!).

There is no time limit for this challenge!

The deadline is Monday, September 1, 2014 at 2pm ET (U.S.)!

Each daily topic is open roughly 36 hours, weekend challenges are open about 60 hours!

Entries: The goal of the DSC is to make you pick up your pencil EVERY day!
Quality/Time are NOT the goals. If you only have time to draw a stick figure that's acceptable and encouraged!  
We encourage experimentation and creativity most of all!

Have fun!

If you've uploaded a piece of art to deviantArt already, just click on that piece of art in your gallery and you'll see a button to your right marked "Add to a Group"--either the group you are a member of will appear once you click this or you will have to type in the name of the group.  Then, once a group is selected, just click submit.

That should do it.  Hope this helps.

Can we have a memorial Robin Williams challenge?  He meant a lot to a lot of people, and I think it's appropriate that everybody take a while to remember how much they loved him with a sketch.

Certainly-- Genie from ALADDIN works for this purpose--probably the only character he played who could keep up with his mercurial personality.
