This is where the message goes!

Having trouble coming up with something to draw? No worries - while you'll eventually learn how to start from a tiny seed of a thought and gradually nurture it into a complex concept to explore through design and illustration, it's perfectly fine not to be there just yet.

For now though, here's an idea that might interest you.

No Take, Only Throw!

Does your pet have a toy they just refuse to part with? One they carry around with them everywhere- you know, the one you tuck into the carrier with them to give them comfort on visits to the vet? Clearly, such an item would be of immense value to them, and they're fortunate no one else is interested in taking it for them. At least, no one with thumbs.

Well, too bad. It turns out their prized possession is actually an artifact of immense intrinsic value, and the secret's out. Treasure hunters, government agents, and third-rate adventure youtubers are heading straight for you!

But worry not, your pet always knew this day would come... and they're ready. So, show us. How will your pet stave off these waves of thieves and keep what's theirs?

This prompt is part of our special "Pet Week" Promptathon, where all of the prompts are themed around our pets. You are encouraged to use your own pet as a focus if you have one, but if not, feel free to use ours! You'll find many photos of our beautiful Sweater Sleeves here - we've been posting one each day for the last six months for just this purpose.

Color and Light by James Gurney

Color and Light by James Gurney

Some of you may remember James Gurney's breathtaking work in the Dinotopia series. This is easily my favourite book on the topic of colour and light, and comes highly recommended by any artist worth their salt. While it speaks from the perspective of a traditional painter, the information in this book is invaluable for work in any medium.
