Hi guys,

I really like rhombus' idea of a somewhat continuous creative challenge to keep the GoF's creative masterminds busy so, in cooperation with him, I will host a fanart version of his fanart challenge, yep, yep, yep! The challenge will be purely for fun and aims at improving your art skills - whether beginner or pro, it doesn't matter :)

But I won't be hosting this alone. RockingScorpion is going to assist me :yes

Well, let's talk facts:

1. There will be a prompt every 2 months for the time being. I have this feeling that one prompt per month might be a bit too stressful for some but if it turns out to be too slow, we can always pick up speed.

The prompt can be a word, a name or a short sentence. Maybe even a quote? Examples could be
... word: Friendship
... name: Mr. Thicknose
... short sentence: The gang is in danger.
... etc.

At any case, there will be a few words to explain the prompt and to give some guidance :)

2. Anybody can participate! The only requirement is, that the artwork is uploaded here on the GoF. Besides, you will need to specify that the drawing was made specially for this contest in the Author's Note of your artwork (no using old artworks! ^^spike). Also, while only one artwork may be entered for voting, we encourage to create more entries if you have more than one idea. In such a case, you will have to state, which one to be voted for though.

3. As far as art mediums go, anything goes. From clay figure to pencil n' paper, from paper folding to digital or a good ol' watercolour painting and anything inbetween :)

4. It would be great if you let us know that you are planning to contribute your artwork so we can determine if we're still expecting more entries or not.

5. Once you've finished your entry, please PM me with a link to the artwork. Please do not use this thread for that. The links to the finished entries will be collected in the masterlist thread

6. After the end of each challenge, participants may vote for the best entry based on creativity and quality (creativity should be more important though :)). Voting will be held in the voting thread . Of course, voting for yourself is a big nope, nope, nope :smile
The prize for winning will be the permanent feature in the masterlist thread as well as the privilege to come up with the next prompt (if you don't want/don't know what to choose, Rockingscorpion and I will take the turn instead)

We really hope this will help some of you artists out there to improve and have fun expanding your horizon... and I hope it goes better than my last contest :angel

If you have questions concerning the contest in general, the voting, the prompt or just anything, this is the place to ask us, yep, yep, yep :)

I will post the first prompt RockingScorpion and I agreed upon shortly. It will always be posted in the masterlist thread however it will also be mentioned here.

First prompt for you, let's start easy and get the hang of it, shall we? :)

Draw your favourite character. You may have them interact with other characters of your choice and you are free to draw him/her/them in any scene you like. Be creative :)

I fully intend to take part in this event! Should give me something fun to do while the prompt challenge is going on, and since I've been telling myself I'll get back into drawing, this is the perfect kick in the pants for me! My only question- does it have to be the character as he/she appears in the series, or can it be our interpretation of said character?

If rhombus decided to draw Taunt (just theoretically) from his fanfics, that'd be perfectly fine. If he'd draw Littlefoot as a sharptooth, that'd be just as fine. In other words, yes you can draw them as you interprete them :yes And, OC's are okay too if you happen to have an OC as your favourite character :lol

Can we use the discussion thread to post work in progress pictures? I have no need to keep my project a secret.
