Squirtle Stamp by lightpurgeBring in the Squirtle Squad by chibiturtleboi:: Squirtle Fan Stamp :: by Sweetie-ChanSquirtle Love Stamp by SquirtleStamps

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 :hug:

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.

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!


1. You must be a watcher to participate, as this is a special thank you to all you guys for the support Heart
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 :D

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.)

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.

Bullet; BlackTHREE people will be randomly chosen for a one month premium membership or 400Points!

:bulletred: THREE people will be randomly chosen for a digital sketch like this from Berryzem

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!

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!

(That's 30 days from now, so if you draw at least 3.333... hands/day, you'll make it!)

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!

HANDS by AwesomeStock

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 Heart (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! La la la la

  • Listening to: There was an idea called the Avengers Initiative.
  • Reading: The idea was to bring together a group
  • Watching: of remarkable people to see if they could become
  • Playing: something more. To see if they could work together
  • Eating: when we needed them to,
  • Drinking: to fight the battles that we never could.
