#MARCHOFTHEROBOTS (WITH PET)
Every year in the month of March, a thunderous cadence can be heard rolling across the land. Artists around the world celebrate their love of all things robotic during MARCH of ROBOTS!
The goal is to draw a new robot illustration each day for 31 days. If you feel you’re up to the full 31 day challenge, awesome! If not no worries. You don’t have to do a drawing every day. Just set yourself a goal and stick with it.
I started this community drawing challenge mainly to improve my drawing skills and to explore my vision of the future where robots are part of our everyday life.
So! Open those sketchbooks, sharpen those pencils, boot up those digital drawing tools the ROBOTS are coming!!!
The 3 Laws of Robotic Fun:
1Drawings can be digital or analogue, but it must be drawn by you and it has to be a robot or depict a scene featuring a robot.
2Hashtag your drawings with #marchofrobots and #marchofrobots2019 then post it to Instagram and any other social spot you like. Twitter, tumblr, etc.
3Have fun with it!
As per the instructions above, create your own robot, BUT YOU MUST INCLUDE A PET FOR THE ROBOT.
CONCEPT: While it’s not required, you may feel free to use any of the prompts listed in the third image above (either for the particular day your working on it, or from any day you’d like).
THE ART CLASH is a weekly art challenge. Each TUESDAY a new Art Clash challenge will be posted. You may work in ANY MEDIA you like, but you must stick to the brief of this week’s Art Clash. And please, no posting old work in the Art Clash. This is about encouraging growth through work, so we expect a new piece every time.
Your final art will need to be uploaded to an image hosting service (here are a few I recommend: Imgur, Google Photos and Flickr) and then may be posted here ANY time until SUNDAY evening at MIDNIGHT (EST). Voting begins immediately afterward and polls close on MONDAY at MIDNIGHT (EST). So don’t miss out!
The artist with the most votes for the week by the close of the polls is declared that week’s winner and chooses the next Art Clash.
***A BRIEF NOTE BEFORE WE BEGIN***
Just a reminder that we’re currently in The Art Clash version 1.1. The primary difference in this iteration is each week’s Art Clash will feature two tiers of competition: sequential and pin-up. Anyone entering can choose to illustrate that week’s challenge in a sequential storytelling form (page templates will be provided here) or as a stand-alone, pin-up-style image. Build and illustrate a story of your own around an Art Clash challenge, or wow your audience with a single powerful image. It’s up to you. We want to foster all levels of creativity here, so this will provide an opportunity for all artists to take their work in whatever direction he or she desires and to whatever degree of finishing.
