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!

AVENGERS 2: AGE OF ULTRON arrives in theaters here in the states next week.  And what is Ultron, exactly?  Well, he's a cold, calculating robot hell-bent on mankind's destruction.  And yet, he's got some real emotional problems--real anger issues.  Strange things--robots with messy emotions.

Created by Roy Thomas and John Buscema during their legendary run on THE AVENGERS, Ultron was the creation of Henry Pym--a robot with real emotions and a mind based on the brainwaves of his creator.  And the story of the comics' version of Ultron really hinges on that father/son, Frankenstein/monster relationship.  The cinematic Marvel's Ultron may or may not share this vital status.  We shall see.
 
What we can see is that Ultron looks quite different from the comics version.  Physically, his face is much more... human.  And that just doesn't sit well with me.  So...

You are challenged to Redesign Ultron for the movie--give it a look that you'd prefer.  Add or subtract elements, go in a totally different direction, whatever you like.  But make it yours and make it scary as hell!  You have an hour!

The deadline for this challenge is Monday, April 27, 2015 at 2pm ET (U.S.)!

Bender "bending" Rodriguez is a Bending Unit 22 robot that was created for bending metal girders. Sometime afterward, he decided he had no reason to live when he found out that these girders were used to make suicide booths.

He first met Fry in the line to one of New New York City's suicide booths. They along with sewer mutant Leela ended up being hired to work at the Planet Express delivering company after Fry convinces Bender that he is free to choose his own path.

Bender is fueled by alcohol, which results as green house gasses. He can run on mineral oil and dark matter as well. Bender seems to have a hammer space in his chest cavity, as he can fit a number of things inside, like his CD player, His Gaydar, on some occasions Lucy Liu's head, weapons, and comes equipped with breathing masks inside, and his butt can be used as a flotation device. Bender can both operate in deep sea and in space. He has extendable (extendo-matic) and detachable limbs and a detachable head, which doubles as a tape recorder, and comes equipped with zooming vision (his eyes pop out) and he has a cheating device. Bender also appears to be extremely strong as in several episodes he has performed amazing feats of strength. In one, he bent an 'unbendable' girder, and in another, he picked up 'dark matter' which weighs more than 1000 suns.

Bender was created in Mom's Friendly Robot company in Mexico, around 2998. His serial number is 2716057, and his fellow Bending Unit, Flexo, has a similar number, as they are both the sums of two cubes.

Today, you are challenged to draw Bender for about half an hour!

The deadline of this challenge is Saturday, April 25, 2015 at 2pm ET (U.S.)!

The robot villain Ultron created the Vision - a type of android he dubs a synthezoid - to use against Ultron's own creator, Dr. Hank Pym . He was named for being the "Vision of Perfection". The Avengers believe that the Vision's body was created from that of the original Human Torch, the android Jim Hammond, while the patterns of his synthetic brain were based on those of the then-deceased Wonder Man. The Avengers would later learn that the time lord Immortus harnessed the power of the Forever Crystal to split the original Human Torch into two separate entities; one body remained the original Torch, while Ultron used the other to create the Vision.

The Vision made his first appearance in Avengers volume 1 #57, in 1968. He was created by Roy Thomas and John Buscema.

The Vision will appear in Avengers: Age of Ultron, portrayed by Paul Bettany (the actor who voices JARVIS in the Iron Man films).

Today, you are challenged to draw The Vision for about half an hour!

The deadline of this challenge is Friday, April 24, 2015 at 2pm ET (U.S.)!

Looks like you put it in the developed sketches folder earlier?  That folder takes three voters to approve it.  It seems it's in the right folder now and has been approved.  Sorry about the wait.

Question, in the challenge can I only follow the sketch of the day or can I follow my on schedule?

For the challenges the idea is to do the characters selected around the day of the "daily sketch challenges". We tend to keep a 48 window open for that.

You may go at your own pace for your personal taste, but take note that we may refuse to accept a submission if it's been too long or if we forget that we picked that subject.  We're not strict, besides it's art, you're doing it for yourself first and foremost.
