Cyn Illustrations
The Sleemur Semi- amphibious lemur Habitat: dense marshy wetlands with many small pools of water and thick vine covered trees. Diet: The sleemur hunts for large snails that can be found in the mud of the pools and in the trees during the dry season. It may also eat various beetles, vegetation, and it's own jellyfish if food is scarce. Most Sleemurs are solitary and have a symbiotic relationship with marsh jellyfish that attach themselves to the creature with spores when first entering a pool of water. The jellyfish act as a defense from predators, stinging those that attempt to attack, and also hitch a ride from pool to pool picking up tiny organisms to eat and releasing new spores.The jellies also can bioluminescence at night, which aid the Sleemur in communication and mating rituals.  The Sleemur has a claw hand slightly webbed that works well for navigating around the thick vines and digging in the mud for food with the hallow scoop in its main claw. It uses its mandibles for holding and sensing for its next meal. Sleemurs are nocturnal, but they will occasionally display crepuscular behaviors hunting during the early day if it is heavily overcast. Refence used: seahorse, jellyfish, beetle and lemur.

Hey everybody! Was freaked at first by the quick turnaround on this challenge but had some time to come up with something tonight! Peter Han is such an inspiration and I'm just happy for the opportunity to participate. I used several of the references, maybe a little too obviously, but here's my little travelling seahorse musician on his day off, picking some strange flowers. Merci!

This poster is about my art journey, specifically when the pandemic hit, and I had just turned 30. Growing up, I was discouraged from pursuing art in any way and was sometimes even told that I'm not talented enough to be an artist. They may be right about my lack of talent. But part of my quarter-life crisis was this realization that even in art, if you put in the effort, you improve. I feel like age 30 was when I really embraced this idea and started to commit work towards it. Getting back to the poster, the zombies in the background are everything in my life that was holding me back from fully connecting with art, such as self-doubt and lack of self-agency. I broke out of the prison that I grew up in, took a swing at the zombies, and gained a couple of art skill points along the way (hence the paint on my spiky baseball bat and clothes). Maybe due to the abruptness of the escape, I don't feel perfectly equipped to navigate the art world yet, like a freshly made game character that's still picking up gears from tutorial quests. So that's why I'm walking around barefoot. Well, that's about it for the summary, haha. Thank you for reading this far, and good luck everyone! :)

Greetings everyone! I decided to focus on the adventure side of being an artist. I wanted to focus on my day to day life as an artist, which is spending a lot of time studying and practicing my craft and battling surprise monsters that can pop up while working away in my studio. My loving wife is always there to support my life long adventure as an artist. I hope everyone enjoys it as much as I did working on it. Everyones entrees are so varied and creative. Good luck to everyone else with submissions!!!

Hi everybody, Here's my sci-fi horror movie poster featuring me and my struggle into this life and art journey. This movie is called Hourglass because I feel like I'm running out of time. I started drawing again at 26 years old after not drawing since I was a kid. I'm now 29 and have so much too learn still. In the picture you can see an hourglass representing the time flying by as the sand is falling on my head, wearing a space helmet at the bottom of the hourglass.  I'm looking at myself running saying in my head: you got this! The thing is, the road to get to my goals is not easy. Two of my inner demons are there to prevent me from reach it. At the top we meet 2 of my demons: Impostorus Syndromus and Selfus-sabotagus (really originaljp...)  At the base of my foot there is a broken chain, this means that rediscovering art helped me freeing myself  and liberated me. Slowly I'm getting rid of my demons and can draw freely like when I was a kid... Hope this resonate with some of you.  This was done on Blender and Procreate.

A modern fine arts student must question himself every day. Especially in a dark and desolate landscape full of conceptual nightmares and performance art terrors. That’s where trust is important. Trust in the people closest to us and especially in our abilities and dreams.  My mother as the powerful genie, pushes me to better myself every day. My fiancé and muse supports me in a way no one else can and my closest friend the conniving saint inspires me with no end.  Join me in this dangerous journey, as we venture to unearth the secrets of painting and and find the lost castle of financial independence. The knight of the Brushy Lance will be our guide and mentor, for he will protect us from bad perspective and help us focus on the Bones of the art!

Just a dream. Just a fantazy. Just for fun. Thank you for June 2021 Proko Challenge. It's so wonderful to fulfil our dreams through the art. P.S. please look at my artwork in the original, because there are a lot of dead pixels on preview.

STICKY GIFT (2021) When moving sticky notes guides this young woman who strives for being an artist along with her swan helps her remind herself of who she is by going to the past, solving out mysteries before her birthday, 14th of June. Hello! I'm Oliziette and this is my movie poster for a movie that will tell my story on how I become who I am. It's an adventure, fantasy, action, a little bit comedy here and there, and mystery type of movie. Why it's called Sticky Gift, like what's so special about the Stick Notes? Well, I use it a lot and it has saved me so much in my workplace and myself, not only as an artist, but MAINLY in my personal life. I'm quite forgetful person, and i have to remind myself all the time. Now, there was one time I made like a past > present > future thing. Being an artist has changed my views in life, but even so, I had to remind again to myself that it's okay to fail and to take a breath whenever I know I start to panic over mistakes, failures, and judgements. It helped me so much to get through all of the stories again that I had in the past and get me back to the present to change the future. Also, Sticky Notes has become my friend at some point hehe. The "Gift" one? Well, I'll leave the theories on you guya for the mysteries hehe~ (Actually.. it's kind of obvious though ahaha). So enjoy this poster I made that shares about the journeys on how I got here, along with my two little companions: a swan, and my little Sticky Notes. I had fun while making this, so I hope all of you had fun and are having fun making yours! Goodluck 😊

Hello fellow artists! I chose to do an animated film that is a drama based on the past year of being stuck inside and how I’m trying to make more efforts to get outside.

Here is my submission for this months art challenge. This movie is called “The Voyage”  When I saw that the theme of the challenge was a “My Life Movie Poster” I knew exactly what I wanted to create. For the past year I’ve been working on creating a fantasy world filled with mermaids, harpies, sirens, pirates and more. My biggest problem is that I’m terrible at writing and coming up with stories, so I’ve contented myself with drawing one scene at a time, hoping that I’ll be able to tie the individual scene together down the road.   This challenge has given me that opportunity to pull those fantasy pieces together into one movie!  Thanks for checking out my submission. I hope you enjoy it.  PS. Bonus points if you can spot the painter in the poster.

Hey everyone! This is my first attempt at a Proko Challenge. When I initially saw the challenge prompt I wasn't really sure what to do, but after sitting with it for a while, this image flashed in my head. My wife and I always joke about how chaotic our life is, when in reality it's quite pleasant, and we are so fortunate for everything we have. Most of our chaos comes from our old house, our crazy dog, all the usual stuff. The three of us; my wife Ange, myself and our darling innocent angel pup Ripley (so named after Ellen Ripley, of course), taking on a sci-fi post-apocalyptic yada yada just felt right. It might be a little too obvious, but I love sci-fi, fantasy, cyberpunk, 80s, retro-future, all that ish. I really did try to push myself in terms of skill, even if thematically it was a little bit comfort zone, so maybe in the end it's just an excuse to try to make my little family feel a little cooler than we really are. There are so many impressive and wildly creative entries already, best of luck to everyone!

Hey guys! I grew up watching superheroes being awesome and saving the world from one apocalypse after the other. I loved seeing them win over the evil mastermind with a glorious plan to end the world as we know it. Then I started to figure out that the world is not exactly black and white. Unfortunately the big bad guy is not always wrong and the great good guy is not always right. Hence the question: What is a hero anyway? What is a Hero Anyway is somewhere in the fantasy action-adventure genre. What do you do when one day a guy knocks on your door and says that he is Time and he's running out of you. Of you, the people, who believe in him and think that he is a good guy and not a villian. Time doesn't mean to rob you from anything or make you rush and hurry your life away. It's the other guy, he says, the monster with the black-hole eyes that eats the people away. So of course, you go and help Time out to kill the monster with your cool knife and somehow magically appeared fighting skills. But the story wouldn't be whole without the helper: the mystical scorpion, fierence and wonderful who as a guardian, would always show the way in the most unexpected places (while also somehow weirdly sounding like your mother).  Lots of revenge and ass kicking with a funny bird sidekick voiced over by Charlize Theron. In the tarot deck The Fool represents new beginnings, having faith in the future, being inexperienced, not knowing what to expect, having beginner's luck, improvisation and believing in the universe. Even if you're not the hero of the story, that's all you'll ever need.

I am in love with the classic painted Hollywood movie poster aesthetic, especially horror ones. It's amazing how busy, bright and colourful they were compared to their modern counterparts! So, I've decided to take every artist's nightmare and the story of my life essentially, and turn it into a classic scary flick. Enjoy! I'm sure you all can relate ;P Painted digitally from scratch.

Update 3: So, this is nowhere near as complete as I thought it would be at this point, but I will be done by this weekend and ready for final submission. I have changed up the colors that I originally thought I would go with and pretty much just sticking to a basic color palette. I have to learn perspective better and how to add 'volume'? so things and people don't look so flat. In the end I am struggling as this piece isn't much better than I would expect from a kid, but I am reminding myself that a kid and I are at the same artistic level, so to get over myself and keep putting in the time. Speaking of time, that has been a bigger limitating factor than I originally thought. So, I am currently trying to bend and shift my energies and schedule to make time to practice and to work on fundamentals. I think this will be my last update until final submission which should be between Friday and Saturday night CST.

Hey Sam! My quick tip would be to try to think about value (light/dark) over colour. If you squint your eyes, your main character's clothing really disappears into the background, so make sure that your values contrast against the background colors you choose. The other thing is just to remember that things in the foreground generally have higher contrast and more detail (where the focus is) and less contrast and less detail as things get further away! Don't stress, just keep at it!
