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.

Cenny my dear, everyone loves and needs your criticism, but you really are starting to sound disappointed and annoyed by how much these weird people ruined your creation, which is a little inappropriate considering it would have been dead and buried without them. Of course you are all free to ignore my voice since I stopped being a contribution to the contest months ago.

You sound so excited Cen, calm yourself.

Well, it was some three hours of work in the middle of the night dismissed for the chance to draw something natural to the United Nations. Which I am not entirely sure why you should think was more my style, I can't even get excited about national politics, so...

@Gabaloth: I always complain about the themes. I would complain about my own themes, if it wouldn't seem just a little mental to do so. It's a fine way to express my displeasure with what is actually my own inability to be instantly inspired by the theme at hand.
I do find it a little disappointing that the themes have been, at least slightly, limited and specific, but I am not the judge, thank goodness, and they should not let themselves be bullied into picking other themes, just because I didn't get an instant master piece idea when thinking up a concept.
I would probably complain whether the theme was "Lol, draw whatever you like

Daemon's theme was bad? He tried quite hard to think of something circumstantial to fit everyone's desires:/

Not any worse than the previous theme was.
And, to be entirely honest, still better than the current theme, because I can't draw anything for that. Unless I take my own snark serious and go trace up the UN building.

We should do some old themes, like des(s)ert and august.

Right now I'm trying to figure out what to do with UN.

Three armed bears wrestling with chickens? A space octopus attacking mars?That is not natural guys. A space rabbit eating people is not natural...There are tons of option.

Then be specific and say we should draw what you think is unnatural.

Well you see, the theme is UN-natural, and as a creative person, I am bound and determined to use the UN somehow.

Anything absurd. Could you walk outside and see it? Is it scientifically impossible?

Good luck?

This was done after a long and physical day. I couldn't draw a steady line to save my life, sorry.

It's a U and a N in their natural spot in the alphabet. It's is also unnatural for letters to be alive, don't you think?

I'm not really sure if you're going to notice it, so maybe an explanation is needed. This is supposed to be a skull with a third eye. Or a hole. Or a hole for an eye. Whatever...
Is this UN-natural enough?
