“Destiny Buck, of the Wanapum tribe, rides her mare, Daisy, in the yearly Indian princess competition in Pendleton, Oregon. Embraced first for war, hunting, and transport, horses became partners in pageantry and a way to show tribal pride.”
Each year through October artists all over the world take on the Inktober drawing challenge by doing one ink drawing a day for the entire month, this is a competition for those who participate in it!

I’ve also Included a few art prints and such of my own, and the winner will be featured on the DrawingDen blog with links to their social media pages. Other participants who have outstanding work will also be featured on the blog as honourable mentions, also with links to their blogs!
I am extremely honored to have these pieces selected into this year’s Society of Illustrators NY annual competition. Being a judge (Uncomission category) for the first time, I got a back-stage glimpse of how selective the competition really is and am extra appreciative of being included. Only pieces with more than 6 votes (out of 8 judges) were chosen. The result was a less than 4% acceptance rate. Out of 1600 entries, only 60 were picked.
Big thanks to SOI, the judges and all the amazing AD I worked with!
Details and line drawing from my recent work! Notice the coin behind the rock, and Pete off to deliver the mail? Follow me for more updates on the Bug Catching Competition poster I’m currently making as Animal Crossing Fan art!!
FINISHED. I’ve invented a ‘Daeydoim’ for The Dark Crystal competition. Basically humble cart pulling omnivores that reside on the edge of deserts. They disperse heat through their large dorsal scales and scrape vegetation off trees with their long incisors. Short fighting tusks also enable them to catch river creatures similar to fish and broad hooves make walking on sand easy. They’re commonly used within the Dark Crystal realm for long distance trade and agricultural farming.
Guess who’s finally back!
If you guessed me, Dipper, and everyone else at TheMysteryShack, you’re
totally correct! If you guessed, uh,
some other random guy, well…bonus points for trying! Everyone wins!
And speaking of winning, we have a very super-mega-extra
special announcement for all of you:
THEMYSTERYSHACK IS LOOKING FOR A BRAND-NEW COVER PHOTO MADE
BY YOU GUYS!!!
Trust me, everyone
at the shack agrees that we’ve had that weirdo Bill Cipher circley thing as our
cover image for way too long. Plus,
after everything that went down, it’s kinda…creeptastic, y’know?
Therefore, what would be a better replacement than some
original art made by you super talented people?
Nothing I can think of! Except maybe, like, a button that generates
real-life cookies. But science still hasn’t invented that yet, so it looks like
we’re going with the fan art!
So from May 1st
to May 31st, we want you to overwhelm us with cover photos!
Flood our submissions box! Bombard it! As Grunkle Stan would say, SMOTHER US WITH FUN! The winner not only gets their art used
as our cover photo for all to see, but you also get an individual promo post in front of over
15,000 followers! That’s…that’s a whole
Oh, whoops, uh, before you begin with the overwhelmingness,
I forgot there are just a few rules first:
Make sure the cover image is related to Gravity Falls! You can
include as few or as many citizens as you want, but it’s gotta be related to
our community. Don’t be sending in
drawings of Phil McSherman from Argentina or anything! I’m sure he’s a really great guy, but he’s
not too fitting for our cover photo.
keep your submissions appropriate and stuff! No NSFwhatever it’s
called. Bill may be a butt, but I don’t
wanna see his butt!
One submission per person, please! We don’t wanna risk someone else’s art
getting lost if you send us 42,000 drawings of Soos. Though Soos said that would be super cool,
but just not right now!
Be sure to send your entries in through the submission button! The inbox is closed, so even if you find some
sneaky ninja way to get them in through there, we probably still can’t accept
them. Submissions only!
Again, the deadline is May 31st at 11:59 EST, no
exceptions! Not even if you offer us buckets
of sprinkles. (I mean, we’ll still take
the sprinkles, but we won’t make an exception!)
The winner will be notified soon after, and then your cover
photo—and your promo—will be revealed to the entire world! Or, like, at
least an awesome chunk of it.
I PRESENT TO YOU - THE ARCHEOLOGY AU Aien and Miko Lavellan, dedicated students of archeology Professor Solas somehow always knows the best places to dig - he says he’s just lucky Dorian Pavus, anthropology specialist - give him a tooth and he will tell you how many times did that person take a shit in their life. Black sheep of a political family (who cares if he has ten PhDs and biggest book collection in Thedas) SPOILER ALERT: they become best friends and do pokemon sleepovers
Simple competition for writers - halloween is almost there and it was time for costumes. Not the mummy and ghost ones tho, but classy and mystery masquerade ball ones. Harry being the charming mystery man that visits every ball, searching for his beautiful “victims” or something like that.
I wanted to draw something more “in action”, like dancing, or harry taking louis somewhere, or passed out louis in harry’s arms, but i decided that if i do something neutral, it will be more up to the writer, what will they bring into the story.
the lenghth doesn’t matter
can be smut/ doesn’t have to be smut
don’t change the characters
victorian england/ modern
happy ending/open ending/sad,bad ending
JUST WHATEVER YOU LIKE
