Thanks, that was fun.

I just wanted to thank Uncomfortable for the drawing prompt interlude. I had a lot of fun doing it and other people seemed to enjoy it too. I have been doing drawing prompts for my 50% for a while now, but this was the first time I had a time limit and posting requirement. I think it pushed me to try a little harder. I saw some really good stuff out there although I wasn't able to see everybody's work. There was a lot of participation. Again, thanks.

I'm not yet sure how it worked out on the 'vacation' front, but I was definitely thrilled to see all of the participation. Students are notoriously scared of throwing themselves out there, so I had my doubts about how many people would jump into the deep end, but a ton of people did, and I know a lot of them were really working against their own self-doubt and fear.

So to everyone who participated - congratulations on a job well done!

hey I had to draw stuff I usually stay clear of, so these prompts were amazing to work on!

Yes! This event was so great. I am looking forward to the next one. This definitely showed me that I can be a lot more productive with a bit of direction and a deadline. I too really enjoyed the community interaction and seeing all the wonderful creations. So much creative energy flowed through Drawabox this last week.

Thank you so much Comfy and the team.

PureRef

This is another one of those things that aren't sold through Amazon, so I don't get a commission on it - but it's just too good to leave out. PureRef is a fantastic piece of software that is both Windows and Mac compatible. It's used for collecting reference and compiling them into a moodboard. You can move them around freely, have them automatically arranged, zoom in/out and even scale/flip/rotate images as you please. If needed, you can also add little text notes.

When starting on a project, I'll often open it up and start dragging reference images off the internet onto the board. When I'm done, I'll save out a '.pur' file, which embeds all the images. They can get pretty big, but are way more convenient than hauling around folders full of separate images.

Did I mention you can get it for free? The developer allows you to pay whatever amount you want for it. They recommend $5, but they'll allow you to take it for nothing. Really though, with software this versatile and polished, you really should throw them a few bucks if you pick it up. It's more than worth it.
