This is the place where you can personalize your profile!
By moving, adding and personalizing widgets.
You can drag and drop to rearrange.
You can edit widgets to customize them.
The bottom has widgets you can add!
Some widgets you can only access when you get Core Membership.
Some widgets have options that are only available when you get Core Membership.
We've split the page into zones!
Certain widgets can only be added to certain zones.
"Why," you ask? Because we want profile pages to have freedom of customization, but also to have some consistency. This way, when anyone visits a deviant, they know they can always find the art in the top left, and personal info in the top right.
Don't forget, restraints can bring out the creativity in you!
Now go forth and astound us all with your devious profiles!
Hey guys! First of all, I wanna thank ya'll SO MUCH for the ongoing support ya'll have given me--all TEN THOUSAND of you! (Holy shit!) It really means a lot that so many people like what I do and want to help support me on my artistic journey. I really hope my work can help inspire you guys to improve and just be happy with your art/lives in general. Seriously, ya'll are awesome
To celebrate, I decided to make ya'll WORK! (I know, so thoughtful. I'm the best, honestly. No, no need to thank me, it's my pleasure.)
I'm sure many of you are familiar with my tutorial on how to get good at drawing hands. Well in that tutorial, I proposed a challenge. Whether you took that challenge on (great!) or not, I'm challenging you AGAIN.
WHAT IS THIS CHALLENGE?? This is a challenge that I'm setting to myself and all of you! It centers completely around pushing yourself. It's definitely not going to be easy, but it will be very rewarding if you decide to fight through it. We're gonna be drawing (or rather, sketching) 100 hands. ONE HUNDRED. HANDS.
Hands are nutorious for being difficult and an undesireable thing to draw. Let's change that stigma!
WHAT ARE THE RULES??
1. You must be a watcher to participate, as this is a special thank you to all you guys for the support Please do not watch me /just/ to have a chance at winning the prizes.
2. At the end of this challenge, you MUST have drawn 100 hands. More than 100 is totally acceptable and encouraged!
3. Use at least TWO different mediums to complete this challenge. (Pen, pencil, ink, paint, digital, marker, colored pencil, crayon--get creative!)
4. These are SKETCHES, NOT finished/polished drawings. You should not spend more than five minutes maximum per hand. (Hint, to get yourself more into doing messy sketches, time yourself for a few seconds then slowly lengthen it!) If you feel lost as to where to start, I recommend watching my tutorial
5. For those who want a chance at the prizes, you MUST upload the 100 hands onto Deviantart (scaps is okay!) OR Stash. (Ideally onto one upload if possible.)
WILL THIS HAVE PRIZES?? WUT ARE PRIZES?? Isn't the prize of personal achievement enough for you?! No? Well...okay, I guess some added motivation would be nice, right? All entries will be featured on a separate journal, but I'll add in some juicy stuff for extra incentive.
THREE people will be randomly chosen for a one month premium membership or 400!
Want to submit prizes of your own? Send me a note with what you're willing to provide! Want more prizes from me? More will be added if more people participate! Spread the word!
HOW MUCH TIME DO I HAVE?!?!?! I want to make sure everyone can set aside enough time to complete this challenge. Be sure to clear your schedule for a few minutes every day and draw some hands!
ENDS: FEBRUARY 20 2017 (That's 30 days from now, so if you draw at least 3.333... hands/day, you'll make it!)
I NEED REFS, WHERE DO I FIND? Using your own hands, a friends/family members, is a great and easy way to get refs! However, if you want a few from me, I have some free to use as well!
Patrons over on my Patreon page have additional hand references they are welcome to use. If you're not a patron already, consider becoming one! Supporters like them are incredibly helpful for me and allow me to offer more fun things like this challenge (Plus, I upload loads of tips, tutorials, and resources over there for ya'll ;D)
Remember, this is about YOU trying to improve YOURSELF and YOUR drawing skills. Don't worry about accuracy, don't worry if it looks good, don't worry how other people are doing. Believe in yourselves, and I can't wait to see what ya'll create!
I have a series on my Youtube channel where I draw my subscriber's OCs. Want me to draw yours? Check the video below for details!
