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!

Family Life

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

Sure, you've got your noble heroes, and your dastardly villains... but they can't be like that all the time. It would be exhausting!

Pick a traditionally grandiose character - either of a species associated with "the bad guys" or a major villain themselves, or something known to be holier-than-thou and morally unblemished - and show us a bit about their home life. Their family, their loved ones. How do they behave when they're most vulnerable?

Bonus points for making us laugh!

Disclaimer: There are no bonus points. I ate them all.

Lesson 7: Applying Construction to Vehicles

1967 Shelby Mustang Demo

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.
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.

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.
