Six Fanart Challenge

Creative Challenges, digital illustration, fan art, illustrations

I know I am a bit late to jump on this fan art train, but I thought I’d share anyways 😜

Typically this challenge calls for the artist to post the six fanart character challenge template (created by @mcapriglioneart) on social media, encourage their community to suggest six fan favourites, and recreate the characters in their style. I, however, was a bit selfish for my first time around and chose six of my favourites.

That said, since this was so much fun and a great way to learn how to use procreate, I plan doing on another round with other’s suggestions. If you have any fun fan art suggestions, please leave a comment on one of my instagram posts! ✏️ 🎨

This challenge was a lot of fun and suggest giving it a go if you haven’t had the opportunity to participate! This was a great exercise to get me drawing again, I cannot express how nice it has been to get back into it!✍️ 🖤

Fan art no. 1: Tiabeanie & Luci of Matt Groening’s Disenchantment

This is a super fun project to get you #drawing ✍️ especially when you need to get out of a rut, need some ideas or to even just practice!

Had a lot of fun with this and suggest giving it a go if you haven’t had the opportunity to play with this 🎨 ✏️

Fan art no. 2: Geralt of Rivia

I watched the Witcher on @netflixca and fell in love with the world that existed! A dark fantasy show that had introduced me to sooo much more with games and books!

It has been a hot minute since reading or even playing anything from the fantasy genre (besides Zelda on my DS and occasionally the switch…I need to make more r&r gaming time 🤪). I used to play a lot of WOW, guild wars, Oblivion, etc. on my gaming PC – which needs a major overhaul, but perhaps more on that later 😉 – and did not realize how much I missed it/the world of fantasy, and how inspiring it is until diving back in!

For the books, so far I have read ‘The Last Wish’ and am almost done ‘Sword of Destiny’ (both short story novels by Andrzej Sapkowski) and highly recommend them as they are amazing reads! Gaming wise, I started playing The Witcher 3 on the PS4, asides from having some coordination issues using the controller (why joy sticks be sooo hard for my brain!!…miss my keyboard!!) lol it is has been a lot of fun!

Fan art no. 3: Link from Legend of Zelda – Oracle of Seasons

Legend of Zelda is life lol a series of games I have played as a child, and continue to play as an adult who ain’t ashamed to admit it 😜 I used to play this on my gameboy Colour and all the game boy irritations up to the 3DS XL Zelda edition. Love it! It is sooo cool that they have continued Link’s adventure throughout the ages and technologies, I have dabbled a bit with Breath of the Wild, but have not had the opportunity to play the game in it’s entirety yet…soon my pet, soon 😈

Fan art no. 4: Louise Belcher & Kuchi Kopi of Bob’s Burgers

I joke she is my spirit animal lol her character is just too hilarious, the humour dry just how I like it 🤣 getting up to all the shenanigans, truly a pure opportunist with such zest for life!

Fan art no. 5: Sabrina Spellman from The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina on @netflixca

I was sooooo sad to hear that this show will not be going on for much longer, it is one of my favourites by far! So dark, interesting and, well, adventurous!

Haven’t found too many shows that push the level of darkness like this one (asides from black mirror and AHS) so if you know of any others like this, please share!

Fan art no. 6: Captain of starship USS Enterprise Jean-Luc Picard of Star Trek Next Generation

I recently found out Star Trek Next Generation is on @netflixca and I am super stoked to watch it again 😆

This was a favourite of mine, would watch it with my dad growing up. When dad worked out of town and would call home, this was one of the shows we would chat about and I would keep him up-to-date (before the internet exploded with all the easy access to information that is) 😉

I heard there is a new show called Star Trek: Picard which Is super exciting and probably old news by now to peeps (I live under a rock, don’t judge my hermit lifestyle :P) buuut I will have to check out!
