Create artworks, preferably oil-paintings (but any medium is allowed, particularly digital art is welcome), that depicts a scene at night. Some ideas include natural landscapes with the night sky, sky with the moon or any other urban or suburban composition at a night time. There's many different directions and themes one can go for, so definitely personalise your entry. Some moods that can be invoked include, for example, serenity, wonder or perhaps mystery. I will be creating some artworks inspired by this theme too, so I'll share them here, but of course they are there only for some reference and involvement. Prizes? I wish there was a way I could award at least a prize for the winner, but as is, there's no prizes. So this is more of a curating competition. Best of luck! Shared picture is a digitally stretched image (for various reasons this was the best I could do for getting a picture) of a work-in-progress oil-painting titled "Scenery by the Roadside at Dusk".

Draw Yourself As a Peanuts Character!
Hi Proko People! I'm Katey and I am the Community Manager at Proko. Since everyone seemed to love the art prompts in October, we are going to start posting a weekly art prompt for the community. Just like Proktober, this is a fun way to practice your skills and connect with your fellow artists, this is not a contest. In honor of the season, this week's prompt is: Draw Yourself As a Peanuts Character!

Sunset thumbnail plein air challenge
This is something of a combination of @Tiffanie Mang's landscape thumbnail challenge with some advice I got from Stan prior to the Draftsmen Plein Air painting episode. Something I've wanted to try to do is be able to capture sunset colours. I find that my camera always dulls and flattens the colours and I don't trust pictures on the internet because they look over edited. So my solution to attempt to practice this is to paint thumbnails during the sunset. Here are my attempts thus far done with watercolour paint and my pan set of gouache. Constructive criticism and advice is appreciated! Rules: - You have to paint the sunset thumbnails from life, not from photos. - I think it would be great if we could constructively critique each other's work before posting work. I feel like the community aspect here is kinda lacking and that's because I think the majority of us want to get advice from others, but few are willing to share it. So before posting your own thumbnails, critique the post before yours and then post your thumbnails.

Is it ok to post our own challenges here?
I’ve been thinking how fun it would be to post and participate in user submitted challenges like “paint something starting with Z”, or “heres a reference photo use it as inspiration for a new artwork and post your results by the end of the week” or even “draw/paint this still life in the style of Sergeant / Van Gogh / Loomis” etc. I noticed in the description for this topic that it said it was for official Proko challenge submissions so thought I would check first? Thank you.
