Prompt and Updates

by phantomseptember April 20, 2014

incidentsillustration:

This week’s prompt is to create an illustration relating to one of the many holidays/days occurring this week! Here’s a list of some of the currently recognised holidays and days going on this coming week:

-20-

-21-

-22-

-23-

-24-

-25-

-26-

-27-

Easter’s going on today, of course, and tomorrow is Easter Monday for Canada… so you’re free to do an illustration relating to those if you want. 

Tag your submissions as week 46: days

Updates: Nearly done with this semester! In early May I’ll be updating the prompt page and generally cleaning things up a bit. I’m also going to see about starting up the monthly art documentary livestreams again. Another one of my plans is to maybe create a page on the club’s tumblr with links to the various documentaries as well. 

Reblogging for those who may have missed it earlier.

Red 9
It doesn’t have a human head, so I guess it’s a slightly borderline centaur.

Prompt suggestions!

Get inspired by the Japanese yokai based on old and neglected objects coming to life, such as the Kasa-Obake and Chochinobake. Draw your own version, for example an old computer mouse, a pen case, VHS cassette, sofa or a toothbrush aquiring a new life as a demonic entity.

A massive monster (maybe terrorizing a city like Godzilla or King Kong, or just silently observed in the sky or seas or space by explorers) inspired by a micro-organism. Examples of our miniscule monsterlike friends could be tardigrades, water fleas or dust mites, for example.

A human or animal with one or more cybernetic (and therefore improved) prostethic limbs. Or a full on cyborg, if you wish.

Research and draw an old fashioned vehicle (at least around a 100 years old, I’d say), be it a ship, a car, aircraft or bicycle or something else.

Week 45: Centaurs

by phantomseptember April 13, 2014

April 16th is “Draw a Centaur Day,” so this week’s prompt is to draw something that includes a centaur. It doesn’t strictly have to be a horse-bodied centaur either, so feel free to approach the prompt however you’d like. 

Tag submissions as “week 45: centaurs

Also, a big thank you to the few of you who offered suggestions for new prompts!

Suggestions

by phantomseptember April 13, 2014

- Select a skull and do a turn-around series of proportionate sketches. For example, do a series of horse skull drawings of the same size that show it from the front, side, and back.

- Draw a work inspired by your horoscope sign. It only has to be inspired by your sign, so you can take this prompt however you will. You could be a virgo, but decide to draw a stag because your sign reminds you of the story of Actaeon and Artemis. 

- Create an illustration based off of the name of the street you live on. you do not have to reveal the name of the street you live on, of course. You could say something like, “Pine is in my street’s name so I drew this girl with pinecones in her hair.” And you don’t have to give any explanation at all, if you don’t want. 

- Draw an unattainable pet. This pet has to be unattainable for more reasons than just being a wild and/or endangered animal. Examples of unattainable pets would be a sea pig, gulper eel, velociraptor, sentient pineapple, Pomeranian-sized bumblebee, etc. 

- Create an illustration based on a quote from Shakespeare’s works. If you’re stuck for what do draw, just type in a noun of your choosing plus “Shakespeare” into google, and you’ll come up with plenty of cool stuff. Shakespeare has written some seriously awesome insults too, if you want to go in that direction!

Prompt Suggestion: Sneans (Sneakers and Jeans)

An illustration that includes these two objects. it could be your OC in sneakers and jeans, a still life, you could design some new sneakers and jeans, etc.

Week 44: Suggestions!

This week’s prompt is a bit different. This week, your prompt is to submit prompt suggestions to the club. You can also submit suggestions for overall improvements to the club as well.

I’m more than happy to keep making up prompts, but I think it would be great to get some creative input from the rest of the members.

Have a great week, and I look forward to seeing what you suggest! Tag your submissions/suggestions as both prompt suggestions and Week 44: Suggestions
