2013 Returning Challenger: Alex Holt

| October 29, 2013 | 1 Comment

Hello! I am Alex, an artist who currently works as an illustrator and graphic designer in the UK.  I previously completed the 2011 30 Characters Challenge, the results of which can be seen here.  My more general portfolio can be seen on my website at

I originally got into art skills through traditional mediums like pencil, pen and watercolour, but these days most of my work is produced in digital illustration programs – generally swapping between Photoshop and Corel Painter.

This year I’m intending to complete a complimentary set of designs for the more nefarious and unpleasant characters in the same world as my last (broadly heroic/good) 30, but due to having to use my time for paid work far more than was the case last time, I’m limiting myself to one hour art time per character this time around.

2013 Returning Challenger: Tim M Celis

Hey everyone,

The name’s Tim! I’m 23 years old, currently occupying myself with everything art. I’ve been lucky enough to be able to fully engulf myself in art in hopes of one day making a comfortable living off of it.

Last years pieces were all done using the iPad. In fact, nearly 50% of all the work I’ve done throughout the year was created with the iPad because of ease of use, lugging my work with me wherever I go.  I’m not sure what will come of this years challenge, but I’m definitely looking forward to it. Can’t wait to see everyone’s entries, best of luck to all!

2013: Returning Challenger Approaches

| October 29, 2013 | 0 Comments

Returning Challenger Hey Y’all!  I’m back for another month long round of character designs!!!

I’m Chrystle Roth aka theJabberwokk. I am currently 26 years old and going to school now for business administration. I still like drawing sexy women and designing costume. BUT! This past year I join a goofy DeviantArt group that does nothing but draw Sailor Moon characters traditionally.  They offer art challenge s and I have found my new fav thing to do: Design and color the most un-traditional Sailor Scouts ever.  I drew fricken Daft Punk inspired Scouts that had pasties.  PASTIES!  Albeit they were technically bad guys but whatever.


This year, like last year, I am going to use one of those theme challenges for my entries.  This years is the secondary/modified monster list. I am, however, going to do strictly females of various body shapes, sizes and ages.  As much as i know i need to improve on my male forms, with working retail (still), I know i need to be able to get off work and draw a form that I KNOW I can modify to be unique, without worrying about whether or not the downstairs anatomy even makes sense.


Here’s wishing everyone luck!!!

2013 Challenger: Wu

| October 29, 2013 | 1 Comment


Hello there, people call me Wu. I’m a finnish game developer, who draws things that resemble artsy stuff on his free time. I mainly dedicate my time drawing comics and sequential art.

This is my first year taking up on this challenge, and I’m pretty enthustiastic about this. I hope I manage something cool and interesting so all of us can enjoy creating more – inspiring each other. I hope I grow more as an artist and learn new tricks during this event~

I’m really bad at self portraits. I’m not that good looking in real life.

Find me at places:
