First, I must apologize for the v-e-r-y late posting of this: I seem to be totally lost in the craziness that apparently is my life permanently as of late...

Nevertheless, this is the reference for September:


Again, I apologize for being a lazy git and not having a monthly folder up... Submissions to Featured as per usual!

pARTy on!

About the Challenge

This group was formed to provide a clear place of reference for a challenge initiated by helekri.


New artist members are welcome to join!


• An equine painting/drawing 12 times a year with no quality or size requirements (a small sketch or a large full-blown piece equally fine). We just need to be able to see that the reference was used at some point In other words, you can turn the reference into a unicorn or combine with other images as long as we can see that you used it :).

• There are no requirements on style or technique, other than it should be a 2D work (no photomanipulations or photography; basically any type of drawing or painting is fine).

Every participant uses the same reference, announced in advance.



• If you miss a "deadline", no worries. Go back to it when you have the time, and finish when you like (but try to be punctual!) -- finishing is more important than being on time.

• You are welcome to join at any point of the year, BUT the later you join, the more you're behind!

• The group gallery is ONLY for pARTy pieces and references for pARTy pieces; favourites ONLY for references and reference suggestions.

• Members MAY submit more than one drawing of the same reference if they so desire.

I really have to move my butt this year... Last year I submitted one or two, and I have one unfinished that will probably stay on my hard drive forever xD
But I'm working on January's horse now... almost in time xD

Just found this group through *AmandaDrage and I'm happy it's January still, so I can start in time. :D The first ref already screams "paint me!", haha. :love: I think this may provide some awesome practice, thanks for creating this group!
