Wow. I don't know how, but this ended up being one of the hardest challenges to judge. You guys did great with this. I couldn't pick 1, so I picked 5 winners! And there were way more that came close. The winners are: @Zoungy Kligge @Ihsan Azrael @uwushane (instagram) @_leiondavid (instagram) @randalrobertsart (instagram) Congrats, you all get a free course. Please email support (the help button on the bottom right) and let us know which course you want. Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I'm very thankful for all of you and the support you've shown me and my team throughout the years :)

Did some sketches, and the little clean-freak knight caught my eyes. Rough color because i finished at 3 am, but! then I remembered that Mop in spanish is "Trapero", which is also the name used for those who do Trap Music, so Lil' Fiesta came to the party lol

Mostly really good. Just the collar bones are too wiggly and should connect at the pit of the neck a little higher.

Thank you for doing this, Stan. The national security/bad actors piece that I hadn't even considered is chilling. Meeting in person sounds like a great idea. Looking forward to hearing about how that goes, and perhaps one day you'll be offering courses on how to use AI for artists as the tools develop? or not? I'm also wondering if listening to audio books at high speeds all the time causes people to speak so rapidly - or creates a sub-culture of rapid speakers.

Maybe eventually I'll have some videos on using ai tools. Really depends on how this plays out. No clue if listening to audiobooks causes one to speak quickly but I know it definitely helped me during this conversation!

I've definitely improved because of you so I would definitely like some more courses lol. I wouldn't have been able to draw this 2 weeks ago if it wasn't for you proko! Been drawing for 3 to 5 hours EVERYDAY trying to improve! Thank you you're the best!

202/11/20. Preparatory study for my next painting. Without any reference pic you can compare it to, could u say that the proportions are correct? Or do u get some strange feelings about them?

Is there a way to take Marshall Vandruff's perspective class? He got me intrigued with the exercises they do

Is it at all possible to have an offline version of this please? If not the video then at least the audio?

So if we try and stop the boulder and don't cooperate with them we will be run over by the boulder. He sounds like a utopian chaser and history has taught us over and over, there is no utopia and it always turns out bad. How many times are we going to run the utopian experiment before we realise this?

I'm with you on this one. Chasing Utopia is dangerous because it gives you an all powerful excuse to sacrifice ethics. "It's ok to do this bad thing because it leads to a perfect future".
