Drawtober 2014 Information by drawtober

:iconnewsboyplz: Each day in October, a blank canvas will appear with a creative prompt like this.

Nobody knows what the prompts are until the morning of! That's part of the fun ~ can you challenge yourself to draw something on the fly?

- Take the blank canvas that gets posted new every day, download it, and draw the prompt.
Download SketchBook and get creative. Use your imagination. Go crazy. Do you create a literal interpretation, or do you see the prompt in a different way?

- Upload your finished piece to your own DeviantART account, and submit it to the autodesk-sketchbook and SurfaceArtGroup.

:deviation: All the submitted entries for Autodesk SketchBook go here and SurfaceArtGroup here, separated by the day.

:nuu: Be sure to check out the other entries from both communities. Share the love by adding them to your favorites and leaving comments. Everyone loves a comment.

At the end of the 30 days, we'll do a recap post on the SketchBook Blog! Your art could get featured and be seen by our huge audience!

:gallery: Just a few of the entries!

:new: Welcome to a New VISUAL News Showcase :new:
What is it?
:icontreasurechestplz:THE TREASURE CHEST:icontreasurechestplz:
"The Treasure Chest"-
truly OUTSTANDING work, found from around dA from Active Deviants,
any genre or media, with 299 faves or less.

This Activity began as a weekly activity within dAWishingWell's weekly summation News Article,
"WishingWell Weekly" about 6-7 months ago. It has been well received and includes participants who want to suggest a few of their own.  We decided to do a similar News Article, but only one that's focused on the treasures, as a MONTHLY Article here at DevNews.

We hope you enjoy it!

GOOD TIMES GONE by ScherbensplitterCrows Feet, they mean you've smiled a lot by MarilynSinclair WhalesWhales
These gentle giants roam the waters,
Not expecting anything.
There is a sharp metal object,
Coming their way.
They don't know what's going on,
But they can feel the pain.
These innocent creatures,
Are pulled up by chains.
The others have finally figure out,
Whats going on around them.
A whaling harpoon has hit them.
A massive violent gun.
As each whale is pulled aboard,
They become weaker and weaker,
In their terrible state.
The last thing they see,
Is the satisfied look,
In the fisherman's eyes.

Hope by SaaallyNiagara at Night by LASKANWLF The Wolf SongThis song is dedicated to all the Wolves,
who had fallen for the pack,
who had died to save us.
Gods bless your bravery.
We will never forget...

Glorious descendants of wildness,
Left hearts full of loneliness.
For the freedom’s sake you have fallen,
They‘ve left your dreams forever broken!
You died to save us, your sacrifice…
It’s the greatest heroism in our eyes!
So brave kids of wildness,
Left hearts full of sadness.
We’ll remember, we’ll never forget… never!
Knowing killing you was the worse crime ever,
We’ll keep the memories of you with honour,
Swearing they won’t kill our kind anymore!
Glorious descendants of wildness,
Our hearts full of loneliness.
So brave kids of wildness,
Our hearts full of sadness.
You’ve given us the might for now and ever.
The power to don’t let them win – never!
We all solemnly swear, that we’ll fight…
‘til the very end of this dying night!
You’ve given
