THEME: Your Original Characters

DUE:  UPDATE – Due in the mail by Nov 30th! – Normally due in my hand by November 30th, 2018


See me open envelopes each week on Tuesdays @ 1030AM PST on my TWITCH CHANNEL!



Do you have some original characters that you’d love to spotlight? Now is the time! The challenge portion of this month’s theme is a character design challenge, so whether you have an existing original character or whether you are creating an entirely new character you must really show us why they are original. Your cards must contain a mix of cards. For example, A portrait, A 3/4 body or full body pose, a scene or setting including your character. Think about their life, their story, the things they love and like. Original characters have stories and personalities that go with them, so you must depict in your cards what it is that makes them original, or something that hints and tells of their backstory. You can of course include multiple characters if you’d like. Good luck and we look forward to meeting them! You can of course include multiple characters if you’d like, all of the cards do not have to feature the same character.

Fan art is NOT permitted during this month as the theme is YOUR Original Characters, not characters from an existing fandom.

If ever in doubt just shoot me an email to ask a question. Send signups and any questions to 


These monthly themes are intended as a CHALLENGE as well as a way to trade fabulous original art and bond our little art community. Please rise to the challenge and treat your fellow artists with respect by putting in your best efforts. If you are unwilling to put forth true effort then please do not apply to join!
