    THEME OF THE WEEK
    Greetings, artists. Do you want to practice regularly but sometimes need motivation?
    Theme of the week is here to give you the weekly motivation you need!

    Basically, every week, on Tuesday, a theme will be announced. Then you can draw, sculpt, paint according to that theme and share your work with us! You can post your results where you usually post your art, such as the Daily Sketch and Fanart thread, and tag your post with #themeoftheweek.

    Themes will be drawn from the Anime Art Battle . On weeks of Anime Art Battle rounds, we'll get the exact same theme as the one drawn for that round. If/when AAB themes have been depleted, we'll pull something from Zerochan/Pixiv/Safebooru "currently popular" pages as a theme.

    Theme announcements are on Tuesday, 10PM GMT.

    If you do at least two in-theme pieces a month, you'll get bonus participation points. This is fast-practice oriented, so the theme will change each week.

    Let's see what have we got for this week...

    Love the mix of hard and soft sections.

    And yes, that's the spirit of it. Doesn't really need to be complete. We're just churning out practice pieces! Haha.

    Loli steps up her game. It's twice as good as her usual doodle :datass

    Rolling for... well we're not rolling because this week AAB Round 3 entries are due and we're doing the same theme. Which is...

    Black and White

    which you can post anywhere in the forums, as long as you tag your post with to participate :skysun

    Let's roll another theme of the week. But first, let's see what entries there were from last theme:

    Damn. Dat shading :datass

    Pencil master race.
    It's Ran right?

    Loli could be either a cartoonist with these skills, or a cartoon character herself, with this over-the-top personality.

    Oh! And let's check out the actual Black and White AAB entries:

    This story was supposed to have a sad ending, befitting of a black and white illustration. Never got around to it, but it was good practice anyhow.

    Looking forward to that fix-up!

    Now. Onto the rolling.

    The more outrageous their usual costume, the more weird they look when they dress casually :cat

    Unironic of course! Think Nice Guy Pose. When the guy does a nice guy pose, you know he'll heroically rescue whoever it is needs rescuing.

    At least I would think. This is @Loni's theme so ask him :blobowo

    I wouldn't say Ran's canon outfits were outrageous, I just draw him with an entirely different facial structure :catskully

    You're right! It was a moon. Well, the "dat shading" comment is for the moon one anyway :catskully

    Hello again, artists! Let's check out this week's art and choose a theme for the next one.

    Glad Stitch cleaned up and became a Nice Guy. He was quite an anarchist back in the day. Well.. he still looks like a living whirlwind even now.

    That's an interesting looking character!




    And now for the new theme
    1. Wedding
    2. Power-ups
    3. Power-ups
    4. Survival
    5. Steampunk
    6. Sci-fi
    7. Library
    8. Disney
    9. Scenery
    10. Wings
    11. Hero
    12. One Color (non-visual: Standing Out)
    13. Anime characters in the real world
    14. Freestyle
    15. Rock Music

    The new theme is One Color!

    I believe this means single selective color, rather than monochrome. Let's go with that. Mostly grayscale, with one part colored in.

    That's monochrome. Not very interesting is it? It's just Black and White by another name.

    Would be technically different with pencils, though (I thought of using several similarly-colored pencils). But I do like the grayscale-with-one-bright-color idea.

    I was thinking about using one color range when I chose the theme. Like you could use red and the most diluted version of the color would be pink and most dark would be burgundy. @Xel gets it.

    You can come up with some interesting compositions with it.

    Well I'm going with Bonta's idea because I like it. But I suppose we could allow different interpretations.

    Theme of the week entries last week were...

    @Loli 's which was posted here.

    And Xelly's here:

    Both of which would make great box graphics or t-shirt graphics. Excellent!

    Now onto the next

    Theme of the Week

    I don't know if we ever solved the possible issue of the biggest number dice showing up more often than it should (remember how everyone kept getting Posts are Moderated in Xiamme's Crossroads event? :catskully) but the theme is...
