Welcome to the Art Skills Competition.

As always, there are a few rules that needs to be followed for proper judging, viewing and general fairness.

Competition Rules
- All major parts of the entry must be original material, unless otherwise stated. Heavy references, sources and other visible influences should be credited as per normal forum courtesy.
- Submissions must follow the current theme to be judged, and must be drawn for that theme specifically. You cannot submit something you drew prior to the theme being announced
- Please do not post entries larger than 670 pixels in width. If your art is larger, post a thumbnail and link to the larger version.
- Artists cannot win in subsequent rounds, but are allowed to enter said rounds.
- Entries can be drawn in any medium available.

20,000 leagues under the sea you'll fund toads? Still no one wants dragons my....I got it Abyssal Dragon, I will find a way to make Dragons in the next 5 themes if they are not dragons rofl

I guess it proved to be too much of a challenge to many.


I had such a cool image of a man in uniform bandaging a handwound on a generally tattered and f'd up body, but I just couldn't force myself to put pen to paper in order to make it. I'm still a little buttmad at myself about it :\\

Of course Hectic you can do this, I'm judging based on how creative and originally you can interpret and abyss. An abysmal dragon fits into that criteria pretty well I'd say

boy golly, my theme sure did get a ton of entries!

Sarcasm aside, maybe I didn't pick a very inspiring theme. If nothing comes onto the plate by the time monday rolls around, instead of extending the deadline I'll just change it. If anyone has a particular suggestion they want to do and I was too dim to notice it, bring it up and I'll choose the most popular suggestion. Otherwise I guess I'll just try again.

Hearts and kisses,

~Current Judge

I've noticed that people do more if you do give them something tangible to work with. Hence if the theme was about an object (e.g. "dragons&quot, you may get more entries.

I'd enter, if I wasn't so busy with school and other work. Also my lack in art skills means doing one mediocre piece takes me days one end.

And when you gaze long into an abyss the abyss also gazes into you.

Right! Because no one entered in a week, I'll dole out a new topic.

Frogs!

Frogs are cute as hell. Frogs are also something pretty versatile to work with and pretty concise. I'll be judging this as I would judge a Frog. Hinty hint hint: That was utter nonsense.

So get to it, I wanna see some kickarse frogs.

I've combined the abyss theme with the frog theme. (The font I used is a free downloadable by font by, Nate Piekos.) Also, I hope that this new Pending guy is a good judge. (The pun I used is a bad one by, Reton8.)
