As many of you know, we try to run a "promptathon" event with the turning of each season. The community had a blast with the Spring and Summer promptathons, but unfortunately we were too swamped to do one when Autumn came along. While we're still extremely busy, we weren't going to let Winter go by without a celebration.
For those of you who don't know what a promptathon is, it's a week long event where instead of working on your Drawabox homework, all that is set aside, and instead as a community we work on new drawing prompts! Each day, a new prompt is released. These prompts are designed to be detailed but open-ended, allowing participants to explore a wide variety of subject matter. While we encourage students to push the boundaries of their comfort zones, we ensure that each prompt can be interpreted in a lot of different ways.
Many students who've participated in the past have found that these events were the key to knocking down that barrier in their mind that made the 50% rule impenetrable for them - especially when they participate with the community on our discord server, where we open a channel for people to discuss the prompts, and post their works-in-progress.
So, even if - and especially if - the 50% rule has given you trouble in the past, join us. You won't regret it.
