We're currently holding our latest Seasonal Promptathon!

We do this every four months to give our staff a break, so we can avoid raising our prices, and, well... dying of exhaustion.

Every day for 7 days we release a new prompt for you to draw from! It's a great way to burn off your 50% rule debt.

Participants can unlock avatars unique to the event, and even get double credits next month!

Of course, it only works if everyone takes a break - so jump on in and participate. Click here for more info.

Here's today's prompt!

Lost in the Multiverse

Submit for this prompt in the next to earn a unique avatar!

The dimensions have been... well, the scientific term is "rubbing" up against one another. It's caused some chafing, and there's been some... egh. Transmission. It's all very technical, and frankly, gross.

Take a character from one story, legend, myth, video game, comic, tv show, or whatever other kind of intellectual property and place them in the world of another, in a different setting, or in a different time.

Lesson 7: Applying Construction to Vehicles

Video Lectures

Hey! Stop working! The Promptathon is on, and it only works if we all take a break.

Not only do you save us from returning to a mountain of work (which would defeat the purpose of a vacation), we've found that participating in the Promptathon has helped students get a lot more comfortable with the 50% rule, and generally develop into more well-rounded artists.

Join all the students participating on our Promptathon Discord channel!

The recommendation below is an advertisement. Most of the links here are part of Amazon's affiliate program (unless otherwise stated), which helps support this website. It's also more than that - it's a hand-picked recommendation of something I've used myself. If you're interested, here is a full list.
Staedtler Pigment Liners

Staedtler Pigment Liners

These are what I use when doing these exercises. They usually run somewhere in the middle of the price/quality range, and are often sold in sets of different line weights - remember that for the Drawabox lessons, we only really use the 0.5s, so try and find sets that sell only one size.

Alternatively, if at all possible, going to an art supply store and buying the pens in person is often better because they'll generally sell them individually and allow you to test them out before you buy (to weed out any duds).

Getting Your Work Critiqued

Having your work reviewed by others is critical, as those who are just starting out aren't in a position to properly judge their own work, and won't be for quite some time. Don't be afraid to show your struggles - it's by analyzing your mistakes that we can help you grow. Perfect homework is not what we're looking for; we just need it to be complete.

There are currently two places you can get your work critiqued by the community - Reddit and our Discord Chat Server.

Both of these are completely free.

Private Patreon Critiques

If you are interested in receiving extra help, I critique the work of those who support Drawabox on Patreon.

All of these private critiques are done through reddit, in specific threads where students post their work as a comment, including a link to their work (often hosted on Imgur, though most image hosts are okay).

My requirements are more strict than the free community critiques:

  • You must complete the lessons in order, in their entirety, starting from lesson 1
  • All work for the lesson must be completed - that means all exercises in the lesson, not just those in a given section
  • You may only move onto the next lesson once the previous has been marked complete
  • The work must be done in the tools recommended in the lesson

The minimum pledge for this lesson is $10.00/month. The orange button above will take you to the reddit thread for this lesson, you can post a link to your work there and I'll be notified. Once I catch the submission, I'll add it to this backlog spreadsheet.

Pledges are collected at the beginning of the following month, but you may start submitting your work immediately. If you're a new patron, I'll be reaching out to your shortly to collect your reddit username.
