State of the Art: August Wrap-Up

Hey all!

Can you believe August is almost over? I, for one, am not terribly sad – bring on autumn! Bring on winter! I am VERY sick of the heat and humidity of summer in the south. However, I will say that one of the highlights of August has been the Smaugust dragon drawing challenge! It’s so fun to sit down and doodle some dragons! Not that I usually need much of an excuse~

And speaking of drawing challenges… my friend GlitchingIcarus (check out their Tumblr and their Patreon!) and I have put one together for September! We both love selkies, and so we thought a Selkie September drawing challenge was only appropriate!

We’ve designed it to be low-pressure because most daily drawing challenges can get overwhelming if you have a full-time job and other obligations. Even though I’ve been loving Smaugust, I’m still falling behind because I just don’t have as much time to draw for fun. Thus, we’ve created weekly challenges! Two short challenges for both short weeks at the beginning and end of September, and then five challenges for the three full weeks in between. Folks can pick and choose as many or as few as they’d like – we’re just excited to see some lovely selkie art!

I hope you all are doing well – stay safe, and all that!
