January’s THEME:

Mushroom Fantasy!

Are you ready to get your mushroom on? Well I sure hope so because this month’s theme is going to be our next book in the ATCitupwithfriends art book series – so bring your A Game! (course really you should be doing that every month right?! Right! Ok here goes

Mushroom fantasy is a a theme to challenge your character and environmental design skills. Your characters can be creatures or people but must have mushrooms as a key element to the character or scene. Some folks like to draw characters/creatures wearing mushrooms as clothes, or gathering them, or living mushrooms themselves, or a city made of mushrooms. Whatever you decide please be creative and try your best – this a challenge and there are a zillion species of mushrooms out there.  What this should NOT be is just a head covered in mushrooms with an empty background, or a card filled with mushrooms scattered about with no character featured. Run wild and create your character and some atmosphere or scene to go with them. Please remember detail and composition are important in our group’s monthly trade challenges, so don’t just go for a solid color flat background, empty atmosphere background, that my friends would not be challenging yourselves. Have fun and I can hardly wait to see what you all create! I will be reaching out to some of you to start early arrangements for the art book kickstarter on this one. I have not one but TWO pinterest boards to inspire you!
