How Not to Tell a StoryAfter being on DeviantArt for a few years now, I've noticed patterns in people's stories. Patterns, that I can't say I've ever seen until I started using the internet.

Despite the few who haven't caught on yet and still believe that "kids hate reading," we all know that these days, reading is popular.

Ah, finally people are spending their time having actual constructive hobbies.
...Or are they?
Here I am going to explore just how this isn't necessarily true; how sometimes your time can be better spent playing a good, mind-building video game or watching a wholesome, creative
Art Challenge for your OC's!This Challenge is for you if:More Like This
You have at least 5 Original Characters (OC's)
You want to draw something other than your OC just standing there.
Your drawings can be as silly or serious as you want.
The idea behind this challenge is to get you familiar with how your OCs react in certain situations. Hopefully, you will become familiar with drawing different facial expressions, different poses, and by the end of it you should be able to draw all five OCs with a blindfold on!
