Weekly Challenge Theme Suggestions
by Tess @ Sun May 18, 2014 10:53 pm Attachment(s) [Reply]

Do you have an awesome theme idea for the Official Weekly Challenge?

Submit your ideas here, and we just might use them!

It's hard to keep coming up with new themes every week, but we know our members have great ideas! :)

A good challenge is something that will be popular with a lot of different people, so everyone will want to join in. Avoid themes which have too small of an audience (like a particular movie/tv show). We want to push people to draw something they don't usually draw, so try to 'think outside the box'!

Please note:
Since different members might end up suggesting the same ideas, we will not be able to credit the author of each idea. So please only share your idea if you're happy to see it used without credit to you.

Glossary of words we often use in challenges:

OC/Original Character - an original/unique design for a human or animal (or imaginary species) that you came up with yourself, or which someone else drew for you to use.

fursona - an animal character that you use to represent yourself. It might look kind of like you, or it might look like your personality turned into physical features (e.g. if you're an energetic person your fursona might be brightly colored)

persona - a human character that you use to represent yourself. It might look kind of like you in real life, or it might look like the kind of person you feel like on the inside - will it be dark and gloomy, or bright and bubbly? That's up to you!

Note: If the challenge asks you to use a fursona/persona/OC and you don't have one, you can use a CS pet instead!

Mermaids' Domes
by SpeedyJay @ Sun Aug 18, 2019 5:12 am [Reply]

What are the purpose of the domes?

Can't tell you 'cause I don't know either.

Why is it so empty in here

DaBrat438 @ Wed Aug 21, 2019 5:32 pm

Sooo pretty!

Maybe the mermaids sleep in the domes so that they won't be carried away by a current while the snooze? At least that's the first that that popped into my head when I saw your comment. ;) either way your world is beautiful.

Welcome To My Room!
by TheTinyFox @ Tue Aug 20, 2019 6:50 am [Reply]

Heh... I tried scratches for a wood-looking technique, I don't know if it looks good or not... There are still some things I have to fix...
Anyways, I'm really not mature and I'm nearly in high school because I still play with my stuffed animals and pretend they run around in my room while I'm not in there.

From left to right, top to bottom, these are my stuffed animals:
Sparkle (unicorn)
Taily (horse)
Willow (rabbit)
Carrots (rabbit)

All of these stuffed animals I've had for a long time. I got every one of them (except Whisper) at a local store after the long, past days of homeschooling. They're so very special to me, and I wanted to put them in their daily settings. Whisper and Taily stay on their little table in the middle, Sparkle stays on the old dollhouse on the left that my Grandpa built me, and Willow and Carrots stay on the little shelves in the middle.

Fun fact: Taily was given her smile by my mom! :D

Awww this is so sweet! Love the colors <3

cinnamon bun @ Wed Aug 14, 2019 12:36 pm

Maybe a small campfire in the middle with a tent beside it? It already looks really good being a wip at the moment.

Sandrilene @ Mon Aug 19, 2019 2:15 pm

Always Gold ☆
by Avoxx @ Thu Aug 15, 2019 7:30 pm [Reply]

"We were tight knit boys
Brothers in more then name
You would kill for me
And knew that I'd do the same
And it cut me sharp
Hearing you'd gone away
But everything goes away
Yeah everything goes away
But I'm going to be here until I'm nothing
But bones in the ground
And I was there, when you grew restless
Left in the dead of night
And I was there, when three months later
You were standing in the door all beat and tired
And I stepped aside
Everything goes away
Yeah everything goes away
But I'm gonna be here until I'm nothing
But bones in the ground
So quiet down
We were opposites at birth
I was steady as a hammer
No one worried 'cause they knew just where I'd be
And they said you were the crooked kind
And that you'd never have no worth
But you were always gold to me
And back when we were kids
We swore we knew the future
And our words would take us half way 'round the world
But I never left this town
And you never saw New York
And we ain't ever cross the sea
But I am fine with where I am now
This home is home, and all that I need
But for you, this place is shame
But you can blame me when there's no one left to blame
Oh I don't mind
All my life
I've never known where you've been
There were holes in you
The kind that I could not mend
And I heard you say
Right when you left that day
Does everything go away?
Yeah, everything goes away.
But I'm going to be here 'til forever
So just call when you're around."

In the now peaceful world of Dar'kire, they roam free. from the tiny flying wyrms to the raptors. A planet abandoned by humans after many, many years. Glowing crystals scatter the surface of this shattered world. Cloaked in eternal night, the small wyrms light up the sky. Vast glowing forests cover the tall mountains, deep lakes sheltering many small fish. Quiet as it is, the land is still shaken by the manmade monstrosities that now roam.

Disrupting the niche of the top predator, upsetting the balance of this mountainous planet. Despite this, the raptors thrive, digging deep caves into the mountains, bringing crystals into these dens to illuminate them. These intelligent beasts were almost tamed by the humans, leaving highly dangerous alphas in the lands before the human civillizations found it unsuitable and abandonned it, setting free these test subjects.

They bare their scars and have taken over this world once more. Serene it is now, back to how it was, and always should be.

Pine mountain sunset
by Eeveecharizard2 @ Tue Aug 13, 2019 5:24 am [Reply]

The mountains hide the sun but reveal the sky and there is a pine forest around the mountains


So the background may not be the best natural environment.
