June Hero Challenge: Alector Fencer

Mon Jun 1, 2015, 8:56 AM


This Month's Challenge


Dreamscapes








Download A Free Version Of SketchBook

Your Mind is the Canvas.


Artists have the capability to capture the evanescent dream by making it visual, and thus, eternal.


Get inspired to draw dreamlike images without fearing the edge of the canvas. Go wild over the flow of brush strokes and colours of things you dream about, or things you have dreamt of.


Understand that you have the freedom to create anything you want and break boundaries of your own imagination by letting it flow into an image. For this challenge, I would love to see you create anything you dreamt of or even something you would love to see in reality. It could be anything from a fantasy creature, landscapes that break apart into clouds, characters getting entwined with dream like colours and shapes or maybe even something you dreamt of last night and would love to share! Fill in the space of your canvas as you explore the world of your dreams.











JOIN THE HERO CHALLENGE!


The Hero Challenge is a monthly creation prompt where one hand-selected industry professional provides a general theme to draw!








June's Hero is AlectorFencer!


Alector Fencer is a professional artist, character designer and graphic novelist living in Berlin, Germany.


Alector's passion for art began at a young age with various colours, patterns and depiction of her environment and dreams. She wondered what pictures and stories might evolve from the ideas and images she dreamed up and made it one of her distinctive ambitions throughout her career. As her work progressed, she gained a reputation for her fantasy style and her inspiring words to help fellow artists. Alector Fencer has always been curious about different media to create her pictures with. Just recently, she began to focus more on digital art yet loves to return to traditional painting every now and then.








In 2008, Alector has started her career as a freelancer and has since been published in magazines, books and game manuals for fantasy RPG. She is currently working on her largest personal project, the graphic novel series, "Myre".







How to Participate






Step 1

Join autodesk-sketchbook to take part in the Hero Challenge!





Step 2

Download the canvas and create! Then, upload and submit your creation to the June Hero Challenge Gallery folder.





Step 3

At month's end, the host will select a few pieces of artwork and describe why those entries stood out. Those works will be featured on the autodesk-sketchbook Group!

Welcome! :D Some groups really spend much time on the "approval stage" thing ^^' In my opinion, sometimes are the smaller groups faster than the big ones :D

When I try to submit art, I can only choose my folder (gallery). I do not have a method to choose group because my profile does not let me to. Could you be more specific about the procedure of submitting art to another deviant because I find it difficult. The picture you show on the discussion below shows that I should write the name of the group but I do not get that field. Thank you.

Well you should read the imstructions on steps1, 2 and 3 in june hero challenge. You will first press mouse on the download button to download the prepared canvas about the June Hero Challenge. You must find the downloaded file on your downloads inside your hard disk to open it via the sketchbook edition you use. You can then draw your art or paste your art inside the dedicated white frame. After that you must search for the "autodesk-sketchbook" group and ask them to enlist you as you did with all other groups that you belong to. I believe you will be accepted soon enough. Then you will upload the June Hero Challenge in your profile (gallery) and finally you will choose this piece to submit in the autodesk-sketchbook group by pressing the "contribute art" button inside the autodesk group, by selecting the folder "June Hero Challenge" (so your work will be submitted inside that particular folder). The group will reply to you after some hours or a day, that your work has been accepted and probably you will get some favorites too. Hope it helped you, cheers!

So the deadline is at month's end? Because it's when Alector picks the winners? This article isn't very clear on it. One single day seems like a short time to pick a few contest submissions.

The deadline is the end of the month, and then AlectorFencer will have a few days to select whomever she likes. Then we'll post about it on the blog right here! Typically that happens about ten days later.

I already drawed art, but I can't suggest to sketchbooks group... I also can't select it and in "suggest to" there haven't any galleries. I don't know... it's a bug or something else? Or I just don't understand something? Maybe there is another way to send art?
