Hi, this is my last minute submission, the flying florest guardian, S.A.R.U. mk.III ! :P The main idea behind the design is a tree climbing scout for deep forest biomas, used by researchers to monitor and even collect material very quickly! Sun and wind powered!

Very nice, and in the nick of time :)

Nice pose and design of shadows. If it were mine, I'd just make that left ankle and left forearm a bit thinner and define the toe shape a bit on the right foot.

This was immensely fun to do. My idea was kind an unholy union with a hermit crab and a grasshopper.

Myself from 20 years in the future. I figure you can always learn a lot from the works and words of lots of artists. However, the one person that could help me become the best artist version of myself is the future me.

A concept artist for the gaming industry, where I get to see my creations brought to life or an illustrator for cards like MTG.

I wanted to go for a much more horror oriented image than I'm used to doing. This one came to me quite quickly after reading the brief and I tried out a bunch of things that I've wanted to do for a while now.

I saw this challenge in my email newsletter on the 8th, but I've had such a busy month. Yesterday I finally got a gap, so thought I'm going to start on this challenge, thinking the end date was near the end of the month, like the prev ones. Came here to check the brief and I see entry period is over already. Such a pity.

Interesting discussion. In my humble opinion, there isn't too much art, but rather too much art being presented. I think it's great to use art as therapy and personal pleasure, but if you aren't trying to get hired for commissions, you don't need to post it on social media and portfolio sites. Too much casual art is flooding the market online and making it difficult for those of us who are trying to make a living, actually get seen.

Hi, I'm a South African illustrator hoping to get into either the gaming, or book cover industry, but honestly any work is appreciated. South Africa has little to no opportunities, so I rely on overseas commissions and contracts. I've attached some of my work, but you can see more here: http://roxanelapa.artstation.com I humbly appreciate your time and advice.

I posted my info here yesterday in the hopes of getting a review, but my comment was immediately hidden by a bot "for spam". I'm guessing it didn't like the link to my ArtStation portfolio. I did open a dispute, but I guess moderators don't work on Sundays so if it ever gets unhidden, it will sadly be too late for that review. Your bot is a real jerk. Just saying.

In the last couple of years I've started making the shift to more of an illustration career instead of web and graphic design because I have less and less work coming in. All these cheap 'design your own logo' programs and 'build your own website with templates' platforms seem to be cleaning up the market. I know I can do a better job, but many clients don't have the eye to spot how misaligned their logos are, how wonky their sites look after they've tried to shove their own content into a template. The client doesn't know the code is bloated and full of validation errors. All most of them seem to see is 'free' or a 'fraction of the price'. So I lose work even though I can do a much better job. It saddens me to see the same thing happening in the art world now. I see there's an app making its rounds on social media that can cartoonify a face...and it does a pretty good job. I know I could do a better job, but how can I compete with 'instant' and 'free'?  Even concept art isn't safe. I see there's a website that you can blend two characters together to make a new character. Sure, a concept artist will do a better job, but a lot of indie studios will probably not save up to hire one - they'll use this free website instead. I'm sorry this post is so depressing. I'm usually a very optimistic person, but I'm just feeling more and more beat down lately. I just want to do an honest days work every day and get paid so I can pay my bills. I go onto freelance websites to pick up jobs and they're full of desperate people offering to design logos for $5 or to illustrate an entire book for $100. These people offering these ludicrously low prices all have thousands of 5 star reviews, probably written by their friends or bots.  Am I alone in feeling this way? How do normal people get fair paying jobs now days?

Thank you for this. I noticed there is a lot of work in my area to do children's book illustrations, so I've been looking around for resources like this, so I can increase my skills in this area. Perfect timing!

Hi Marco, I watched your video about talent, where you mentioned that you weren't very good in the beginning. You're amazing now, but more than that, you have the most beautiful and recognizable style. What was your process in finding your style, or do you have any advice for anyone that may help them find their own style?
