We started an art challenge together with Indiliel
We both gave 5-5 themes and the task is to complete 3 of each half of the list.
Here is our list with the finished artworks :3 Enjoy! I'll update it as we make progress.


1. Personification of at least one planet of our solar system. Chose a planet and show what a humanoid character could look alike that represents that traits of that planet. Not necessarily by the Latin/Greek name of the planet, but rather by its physical traits like color, material, shape and/or other scientific facts. Digital or traditional media is fine.

2. Halloween costume. Stick an original character in a Halloween costume that fits their personality (e.g. a grim reaper costume would not match a vivid character). Digital or traditional media is fine.

3. Fictional solar system. Create a fictional solar system with a sun and a set of planets or other objects. It does not have to be scientifically correct, but should rather show a variety of different planets. Use traditional media.

4. Fantasy Weapon: design a weapon (e.g. sword, axe,...) in a fantasy style. It should not look like a copy of something known and it should be practical (no silly designs that make the weapon unusable). Digital or traditional media is fine.

5. Abstract Emotions. Draw an abstract artwork showing two opposite emotions (like love/hate, joy/sadness). The artwork can be divided equally or unequally in both emotions. They could run into the other or have a sharp border. In any case the art should be done with traditional media and be clearly abstract.

#1 The Tribal Tattoo Design
Use either traditional or digital media to design a tribal style black tattoo.
The subject must be an air plane OR a microscope.

#2 Alien Flora
Use either traditional or digital tools or both to depict a fictional plant from a fictional planet you imagined, no fan art. The finished picture must be 2D work, 3D programs or elements, or photo-manipulation is not allowed, drawing/painting only.

#3 Fancy Gender Bend Fan Art
Choose a male or female character from any fandom, draw him or her as a member of the opposite gender, dressed up for some kind of fancy event.
Traditional media only.
The result is good if the clothes/dresses are fancy and detailed enough and the character is recognizable.

#4 Starship Design
It is the future. Humanity spread from Earth, and now lives on several planets and space stations.
Draw the exterior design of a big starship (enough for 2000 people) used for interplanetary traveling.
Traditional and digital media both allowed. No 3D art, no photo or fractal elements.

#5 Comic Style Illustration
Choose any scenes from Tolkien’s Hobbit with at least one humanoid character (human, elf, orc, hobbit, dwarf… etc) and illustrate the scene in a western comic book style. The result is supposed to be a single, colored comic book style image. Traditional and digital media are both allowed.

That is wonderful that you made a journal for our challenges :clap:!!!
I like this idea very much. Even if I will need some time to complete all, I will definitely be willing to do more challenges like this =)!

I told you, I will :3
It's easier to bring them together.
Oh it takes time for me too. That's perfectly OK. But I love doing them too. They inspire me. <3
