Art Contests

Previous Contests

Archive-Wide Art Contest

Every couple of weeks, the Archive holds an art contest here on this page. The winner of the previous contest chooses the theme, sets the length of time, and manages the pictures that other artists create and submit to the contest for judging. Any logged-in user of the Archive can vote on their favorite picture, and the winner sets up the next contest!


Now that we seem to have a viable replacement for Sketcher in the form of Drawpile, perhaps it's time we see what people can create with it!

Post your best creations using the new app—details are in the current Admin Announcement. Post as many entries as you like! There's no theme or concept other than that entries should be done in Drawpile; you might want to try some Fall-themed ideas, or even Halloween, though I think we might want to start a new contest for Halloween once this one is over.

Have fun! I hope Drawpile proves as enjoyable to use as Sketcher has always been!


Pictures must be created primarily in Drawpile.

Well, I figured I would enter the contest for once >.<

Here is a sleepy Simba, done completely on draw pile...

He looks like he might be having a bad dream, hmmm...

Kion + Fall = <3

Attempted Drawpile for the first time! Also attempted to draw plaid for the first time xD

And still wondering why my sketches always look better than the finished product...
