Sea Monsters Are Very Lonely Creatures

Sure they eat people, destroy ships, and inspire many a ghost story but really...they just want to be loved.

so my friend Ashley asked me to do a drawing/painting for a class she is in and she wanted me to draw a siren, of the things she was hoping to included was a mermaid flare so with that said I was able to kill two birds with one stone. My only story for her is that she is from Eternia which is where He-man lives....hell yes!!!

Time Extension

I was talking with Matt and Nate today, and we decided it might be a good idea to extend these topics to 2 weeks. I know we are all pretty busy, and one week seems to go by really quickly. Plus I know a lot of us could end up skipping a topic because we didn't have time one week. By making it two weeks, I believe we can allow more people to get in submissions without feeling like they've fallen behind.

Thanks to everyone who already submitted an entry. Those of you who haven't yet now have some extra time, so let's see some more sea monsters!

Sea monsters are now due May 2nd.


Quick Update

Hey everyone, the submissions so far are fantastic! Keep 'em coming!
I just have a couple updates to let you all know about:

First, when you update with a new post, please put the name of the prompt you are submitting for in the labels box on the edit post page. I went ahead and added 'sea monster' to all of the ones up so far, so don't worry about those. Also, after the prompt has been posted, you should be able to click "show all" next to the labels box and select the current topic from there. So don't even have to type anything extra! Super easy.
This is all so we can use the "Past topics" list on the side of this page to organize the submissions by prompt.

Second, I updated the "Contributing Artists" list on the right of the page to include everyone. Everyone with a website (that I could find) has it linked there. Those of you I could find o website for have your names link right back to the Sketch Frolic home page. If you have a site I didn't link to, or I linked to your site incorrectly, please let me know.

That's it! I'm loving this blog already, and look forward to more awesome posts from all of you awesome people.

We're bringing sexy blog!

Here Everyone!

Here we go! We're about to graduate, and we of course are concerned with keeping in touch, and staying involved in each otheres lives. So here's a way to do so. This blog is dedicated to keeping ourselves creatively active as we venture into character design, visual development, and other animation related topics to keep our creative juices flowing. So let's get started with the first week of posts.

Here's how the blog works:

1. Every Monday there will be a new challenge.
2. You will have until the following Sunday to submit your artwork before we start the new challenge.
3. Post as many drawings, sketches, or submissions related to the project as you like.
4. Feel free to post current personal work for critique and feedback.
5. Tell us about your life! Keep us updated on all the cool stuff you've been up to.
6. Have fun! Use this blog as your weekly creative outlet.

That's about it! We'll go ahead and set up the first topic. Let's dive in head first, and then you can expect a new topic, prompt, challenge...whatever...every Monday.
