I'm still on the beginner side and this is probably the longest I have worked on something XD Definitely worked my creative muscles a lot, I feel I improved a lot too and it was A LOT of fun ! Like I said on my first feedback post, it's a drama movie based on artist's life. I'm a musician and teacher first and digital artist second. Hope you guys like it! And will sure try to participate on others challenges as well! Cheers (:

Hello! I'm back again with some more refined works? So I went ahead and expanded on the idea of my head cut in half with stuff coming out of it. Made a few iterations... I took a photo of my face and used it as reference, a very serious face! So i could capture the... DRAMMA. Lol. Anyway, I also went a little bit more personal with one of the iterations. These are still kinda rough so don't mind if they don't look perfect. I also juggled with the idea of making a comedy movie poster or something like that, but couldn't really nail something so I continued to with my original idea. Would love to hear from anyone some feedback :D

Right that's the best I'll come up withXD Secret agent type of an action comedy. The agent has to learn to play a trumpet, as a part of his disguise, in 3 days. Might add some explosions n jumping cars idk :D What do you think?

Hi everyone, I made some sketches for my poster and some color studies. I would like to hear witch one of the color studies you think is better fitting. Her a bit of context: So, my father and I love the Dolar trilogy movies with Clint Eastwood. So I decided to make a western theme poster. Now, the important part of my life is that I had to move a lot and adapt to different environments, from the US to different city’s in Mexico, that is why I put a train in the poster.

I liked the left colour study! It gives great western vibes!

Let's see what the community wants. We were planning on keeping this category clean with only official challenges, but if there is enough interest in allowing user created challenges, I'm ok with it. I can just pin the official ones to the top. Let's VOTE.. Reply to this comment with your thought!

Like many have said it doesn't sound like a bad idea. But maybe with some level of moderation so it doesn't become absolute chaos.

Alright! So here I have 3 sketches. Since it's a movie poster that reflects or it's based on my life, my idea is of a drama movie based on an artist's life (yeah, like we don't have enough of those lol). I'm a musican, I write poetry from time to time and obviously (since I'm on this website after all), I'm also a drawer/painter. So, what I did first was take a quick look on how drama movie posters look. What colours they use or elements and stuff like that. And went with these very quick sketches with just an added colour for the background. I noticed that they use very muted light colours, grey scale tones, a lot of faces/portraiture. Of course, I could just make a portrait but honestly I don't think that would portray "the drama life of an artist" So, the first bluish sketch, has the protagonist "thinking" about art, a woman and a city. Some elements that I feel they kinda portray the idea of the movie? I dunno. The next sketch was my first one. Just slapped ideas around: someone on their knees kinda like screaming, someone painting, a book, a piano, etc. but I feel there are too many elements and they don't explain exactly? I dunno. And the last sketch, was done after feedback from a family member, put the artist shouting in the middle surrounded by his artistic struggles. The sketches are very rough but I don't want to commit myself to add more depth or paint after I'm hooked with what I want to proceed. Anyways, any ideas, thoughts? :D

Hi! I wonder if someone could help me clarify something for me please, I’m a little confused about this part of the rules: “"Remember to leave some room for the text! Logo and title optional, unless you wanna also do the graphic designers job 😊 Let's see those posters!”" On many posters, the title and all the text goes over the image in contrasting or different colors, like it does in the example “Proko Challenge, Movie Poster your life” by Karla Ortiz on the rules page. Are we allowed to do this or should we leave something similar to a white box for text, or just leave an area less “cluttered” that we can imagine the text would be put in? This seems like it will be such a fun and exiting challenge, I hope I will be able to finish it in time and I look forward to seeing everyone posters!

I guess it's to not make the poster look super cluttered, so another person could just add text to it. Kinda like what you would be asked to do on a real commercial work. Or at least that's how I understood it (:

I already started working on it! I'm still a novice but I feel that I rarely flex my creativity muscles and I think this is a great place to start! Had 2 ideas, and now I'm working on one to see how far can I take that one. I'll be sure to post my advancements so I can get some feedback :D

Hi everyone :) my name is Harmony and I draw and paint digitally, mostly animals, birds and nature. I live on the east coast of Australia with my husband Pete and our dog, cat, and six chickens. I’ve been looking for a good art community to join for ages so I’m glad to be here! I will do my best to help others and am always grateful for constructive critique of my own work. I adore speedpainting and my goal over the next decade is to be able to draw and paint anything that interests me to a high quality within 2-3 hours. I’ve attached a few of my recent paintings, I tend to love bright happy colours and whimsical subjects. Impressionism and post Impressionism are my favourite art styles and Van Goph is my very favourite artist.

Hello! I'm Cybernetic Phoenix, mostly a music teacher and write my own music on the side as well as paint. I love learning about art and discovering great inspiring artworks. I'm still very much on my learning stages regarding drawing and painting and I'm a full digital drawer/painter, even though I started with graphite, charcoal on a sketchbook. Hopefully I get to make even more artists friends (:

I use photoshop, but procreates brushes definitely feel better! Also a fun watercolor emulator program you could try is Rebelle. It's really fun. (Here's the website for it) https://www.escapemotions.com/products/rebelle/about?//products/rebelle/index.php

A lot of people nowadays swear by Infinite Painter, I've been told it has most of the same features as Procreate but a lot more professional tools.

Hi there! I use a program called ArtRage 6. When I got my first Wacom Intuos as a kid, a free download for ArtRage 3 came with it, and it was the first digital painting software I learned to use. And because I've been using ArtRage ever since I first started, using all the features is like second nature to me. I've tried various free programs like MediBang and FireAlpaca, but I wasn't too thrilled about them(I have a friend who absolutely loves MediBang though, and since its free, you should give it a try). I haven't bothered actually paying for any other painting programs, but I'd love to give Photoshop a go at some point.

I heard they released a new version for iPad recently, I'll check it out for sure :D

Hey! I use Procreate as well and while I feel like I definitely need to improve on my skills with it, I really like it. I feel like I'll eventually find something that another app does better for me but for now I'm liking it a lot.

Yeah, I think that Procreate is not as cluttered or doesn't appear to be so you can get straight to the point which I think it's one of the reasons it's really popular

I've used Photoshop since I was 12, so it's hard for me to switch at this point, but I do break out PaintStorm Studio every once in awhile. It's kinda like a less buggy Corel Painter, although it's still in it's infancy, so it has some quirks of it's own.

i usually draw in PC, so i feel comfortable with Krita and Fire Alpaca, a lot of my friends are into Clip Paint Studio, because they only had to pay once, but it has really cool features, like perspective and animation tools

I have tried Krita before! It's really nice, wish it was available on iPad. As for Fire Alpaca, I have heard of it but never really tried it :O Both are open source, right?

I draw with a custom desktop PC setup and a Huion display tablet. My favorite program is Clip Studio Paint. I'll attach a screenshot of my layout. I've never tried an ipad + Procreate combo but I really want to in the future. It looks fantastic for portraits.

I have always been interested in Clip Studio, unfortunately it's subscription base on iPad (not within my budget D: ) Really like the set up you have!

Hello! Just wondering what other people like to use for digital art. Do you guys have a specific software you use or do you jump back and forth depending of the situation? I use Procreate for the iPad and I love it (although it does have its quirks)! But now that I'm more "experienced" (?) or confident with digital art, I feel like exploring other options. Anyway, happy Proko 2.0! Cheers!
