Are you tired of feeling like your art just isn’t improving? Do you want to do a 30-day challenge that’s actually useful? Welcome to 30 Days of Improvement Hell. >:D
I made this because I’ve been feeling super ‘blah’ about my art these days, and I needed something to kick-start myself. Who wants to do this with me!? Start now or whenever you can (now you procrastinators!). Challenge yourself and have fun at the same time!
Tag your posts with #Improvement Hell so everyone can follow along and see each other’s awesome artwork. I may even create a blog and reblog them! :D
What are you waiting for? START!
- Self-Portrait - Introduce yourself
- Draw a figure using a reference - link to reference
- Draw a figure that’s in action, using a reference - link to reference
- Draw a part of the human anatomy you have trouble with. x20, with atleast 5 being skeletal/musculature studies.
- Draw more figures. Quick gestures and silhouettes. x20, with atleast 10 different body shapes
- Let’s have some fun. Design a character from this character generator. (created byPreservedCucumbers)
- Pick the weirdest object in your house/room. Draw it. Shadows and Highlights.
- Find 2-3 objects, make a scene with them. Draw it. Bonus points for creativity. Double points for dramatic lighting.

- Draw an interior setting with the character you designed on Day #6 in it.
- BG with either bird’s eye or worm’s eye view.
- Halfway there! Draw three ‘action’ scenes with different compositions in each. Quick sketches are fine, just make them interesting and understandable! Bonus points if it’s the same scene, but different composition.

- Draw a character/object/scene, and shade them using ONLY solid blacks and whites. Bonus points for good use of lights/shadows
- Draw a different object/scene/character. Shade using hatching, crosshatcing, and/or pointillism. Bonus points for lights/shadows and textures.
- Colors! Pick a color palette, and paint a scene/character/object using only those colors (some blending allowed). Bonus points for good use of lights/shadows.
- Draw and color a scene/object/character - no lines allowed! (aka - lineless art). Don’t forget light and shadows!
- Draw a scene/character in a style you’ve never drawn before. If emulating an artist, credit+link. Bonus for color style.
- Draw a character. Draw 10 emotions/expressions. Bonus points for ‘uncommon’ emotions. (i.e. anxiety, guilt, despair, loneliness etc.)
- Draw three random shapes using your opposite hand (or your foot). Now design characters from those shapes.

- Almost done! Let’s have some fun. Draw some fanart. Bonus points if it’s super obscure and unknown. Make people guess what it’s from.

Look at all that amazing improvement! Congrats!
AIGHT TUMBLR PEOPLE. I know this is 3 days late, but I propose an ART CHALLENGE!
All through the Month of October, I’d love to see you draw the following monsters, as many as you can before Halloween Rolls around!
The monsters are: Zombie, Ghost, Manticore, Demon, Wendigo, Jersey Devil, Vampire, Werewolf, Werepire(Vampire/Werewolf hybrid), Scarecrow, Headless Horseman, Poltergeist, Witch, Mummy, Pumpkin Man, Bat monster, Lagoon monster, Cthulhu, Goblin, Frankenstein, The Rake(GOOGLE THAT MAN, CREEPY!), and Slenderman.
At minimum try and tackle 10! But if you can do one a day until Halloween, you’d be a pro. ANYWAY GET CRACKIN!
I MADE A CHALLENGE!
I tried to stick to a pattern with the classes: Physical, Magical, Mixed. (until the end that are all mostly physical cuz I ran out of Magical and Mixed)
Because I absolutely love job classes, I’d like to design my own characters within the final fantasy job system, it’s so diverse and fun! I listed every CLASSIC job system I could find, not special classes given to just one character.
I’ll be falling back on this challenge when I need something to draw, but I’ll think of these as design challenges! They may not be “daily” for me, but others can certainly give it a shot!
- giving a female a predominantly male class
- giving a male a predominantly female class
- making the job class subtle
- working with color schemes
- poses that involve more than just fighting, every day poses, like doing laundry or harvesting carrots!

92. Draw something that deciphers an emotion with technique and colours. Avoid drawing the face, if you must add a person in it as well. Extremes are very good, like misery, anxiousness and joy.
93. Draw character-interaction, preferably something you don’t usually do (like if you normally do “boylovs” then hetero-pairings would be a nice change? same applies to people who always draw girls and boys together.) also if you usually do erotica, try friendship, and if you’ve never tried anything steamy, now’s the chance.
94. Draw an image that supports something against your beliefs. A presentable one.

98. Draw one of your human-characters as an animal/one of your animal-characters as a human.
99. Pick one of your old, old drawings, and redraw it.
100. Congratulate yourself for a work well done and do an appropriate image of CELEBRATION. This is obviously the final task. I hope you had fun.

Since i know i wouldn’t even have the patience to do this unless i made something fancy like this. I’m in an art slump and it’s time to get over it, and if you want, you can do this thing with me.
The point of this isn’t to make a fantastic piece of art every day, it’s to experiment in areas you are uncomfortable with and try out new things.
Other fun/helpful things for ideas/my favorites: color-palettes | strike a pose | pixel art tutorials | colorshipping | monster boy/girl generator | art reference wiki | links of inspiration and advice
Phew! Anyway I hope this little project will help. You don’t have to do it for 30 days or anything, you dont even have to do it at all, I just hope it’ll give you a little inspiration to improve!
EDIT: I made a group for it, you can submit images you do for this challenge here!
