Hello all, and happy Halloween! This month marks the beginning of our new monthly art prompt schedule. The Halloween spirit hasn't quite died down, but we're moving into autumn and, for those of you in the USA, Thanksgiving is headed your way. We haven't gotten a big list of themes yet from you all, so here's one of mine that I think will be fun.
November's art prompt is "The Ancient". As always, you can work this theme into your submissions however you want. Perhaps you like drawing characters, and you'd like to draw an ancient god or a member of an old civilization. Perhaps you're more into landscapes or buildings, and you want to illustrate the great cities, wonders, and countrysides of a rich and long-lost culture, in ruins or in its glory days. Or maybe you'd like to draw inspiration from ancient ruins like Stonehenge, Chichen Itza, or the Nazca Lines. (These are just some ideas to get you going; do whatever you feel would be cool.)
