This Month's Challenge


“Color as Emotion“








Download this canvas to participate, or download SketchBook on your mobile device to take DestinyBlue's challenge!

“The colours I paint with talk a lot. They speak of love, of power, of past, all with their corresponding hues.


So, my challenge for you: Paint a scene where an emotion is depicted through colour. Colours and emotions are natural allies: that burning red of anger, the radiant gold of tenderness, the hazy sepia of nostalgia. Get creative with combinations, you may depict any emotion you choose, using as many or as few colours as you like, in whatever scenario your imagination devises.


I love art because it can be such a powerful medium of connection, so I would love if your drawing made me feel something!”


DestinyBlue











SKETCH THIS FEATURED CHALLENGE!


Each month, the SketchBook team will choose one challenge from Sketch This to be a featured challenge!








December’s Challenge is from DestinyBlue!



DestinyBlues paintings weave stories through colour and symbolism. Bristling with emotional electricity her works are instantly recognisable by their luminous colours and thought provoking concepts. Tugging at heartstrings, each painting invites you into another girl's world.


Not doing commissions, or drawing for anything other than personal joy - and an emotional outlet - Blue works hard to keep her content independent and original. She travels the world to conventions, where she meets her supporters, sells her creations, and shares her stories.










How to Participate






Step 1

Join autodesk-sketchbook to take part in the Featured Sketch This Challenge!





Step 2

Download the canvas or download SketchBook on your mobile device and create! Then upload your entry to DeviantArt and submit it to the December Featured Challenge gallery folder.





Step 3

At month's end, the host will select a few pieces of artwork and describe why those entries stood out. Those works will be featured on autodesk-sketchbook!






Take the challenge - either on Desktop using the provided canvas, or on mobile through SketchThis!

Now, I submitted my drawing before midnight last night, but it says that it is still pending. Are people sill looking at them to accept them, or will my drawing not make it? I just want to make sure that it gets in...

Hello, it's me again. Umm.. I have some problems with contributing my entry to Autodesk Sketchbook's gallery. I uploaded it on 17th, around 3pm or 4pm PST time. My piece is still awaiting approval, and I tried contributing one more time, couple hours ago. Did I mess something up? I uhh... Was I too late? Or is something wrong? There's no wrap-up yet, but...

I'd like to know the exact deadline for this. It says the 18th, but what time? Usually contests got til midnight of that day, but I wanna make sure because I was thinking of doing another one.

Also, can I do a portrait format piece, or does it have to be landscape? Or maybe either or as long as the canvas is the downloaded one...?

Since the group's purpose is SketchBook we only collect art made with Sketchbook. But you can download it for free and use it with a combination of programs! bit.ly/1fKvhUj

And we're always here to help if you have questions about brushes or settings!

Hi, I've had an entry awaiting approval for the past four days. Just wondering if maybe something happened and it hasn't shown up yet or if you just haven't had the time to review entries in a few days.
Thanks!

oooh and, and, is the canvas necessary? I'm new at Autodesk Sketchbook (but i use it sometimes) and i dont know how to download or use the canvas, and all. Can i just draw without downloading the canvas? If not, can anybody tell me what should i do with the canvas? Or anything? I really confused about all that canvas thingy 😢

You're meant to draw on the canvas (like this) but you don't have to. It just makes it look cool, and then I know for sure it's an entry!

Is that the only colour i can use? Because i need some more colour for some more emotion ;) I hope somebody could tell me, or is there more information of the colour and the emotion? Please i need help! :)

You can use more than one- the idea is to make emotion somehow represented through color!

:iconcreativetouchart:
CreativeTouchArt Featured By Owner Jan 11, 2016  Student Digital Artist
You can use whatever colors you want. The point is to portray color as emotion. You don't have to use any specific color, although a list of colors that go with emotions like in the link below is handy.

I read the deadline was Jan 18th, and max 3 pieces.
Saw your DEPRESSION - Color As Emotion, in the December Challenge folder, very expressive.
Also read things are a little slower over the holidays at autodesk-sketchbook, which is understandable.

and then submit to the challenge folder.
