July Hero Challenge : Loish

Wed Jul 1, 2015, 7:00 AM

   


This Month's Challenge


The Deep Blue








Download A Free Version Of SketchBook


Download



The world under the surface is vast, deep and mysterious. It speaks to our imaginations - sometimes it's presented as calm and tranquil, sometimes nightmarish and terrifying, sometimes vibrant and colorful, sometimes surreal and dream-like. What is your interpretation of the deep blue?


For this challenge, explore the idea of a world under water. What kind of creatures live there? Is it beautiful, dangerous, or both?




 



JOIN THE HERO CHALLENGE!


The Hero Challenge is a monthly creation prompt where one hand-selected industry professional provides a general theme to draw!








July's Hero is loish!




“I've been drawing since the day I could hold a pencil, and started teaching myself to draw digitally in 2003. I studied animation at the Utrecht School of the Arts and, upon graduating, started working as a freelance illustrator and animator, although I primarily think of myself as a digital artist.


I've always had a weak spot for mermaids, sea creatures, underwater settings and the dream-like floating effect that underwater imagery gives. It's a theme that I always return to in some way or other through the years!”

Hi! I sent my deviation to the July Hero folder a couple of days ago and it hasn't been accepted yet! I sent it again yesterday just to make sure I am sending it to the right folder. I don't want to stress you out, I'm just worried that it won't get accepted since the month is about to end. My entry is called Ocean Child.

Thank you! :heart:

I've decided that I'm not going to do this, I've had no inspiration, and time is running out, and because of that, I've had stress, worrying that if I don't get something done soon, I'll never get it done. I may try to do the other challenges in the future, just not this one. I may have had one Idea, but that would require Photoshop, and it has to be done in Sketchbook. Sorry...

I'm a new user of deviant art and I don't find how to submit at the july hero challenge gallery folder.
Help?

The way I do it is I go to my entry in my gallery. On the right hand side under the stats there should be a button that says 'add to a group' - as long as you're a member of our group you can add it~

Make sure to pick the right folder- not Featured but the July Hero folder.

Does this program have pressure sensitivity at all? If there is, it doesn't appear to be working for me.

If you have a pressure sensitive stylus it should work.

Did you add Sketchbook as an application on your tablet settings? and did you set the brush to the right settings?
