Hi ,

I'm so glad to see a space for challenges here.
I've learned a lot from challenges, even the ones I never dared post any images for.
Where should we begin though?
summer is over and the weather is getting nippy,
any ideas for an Autumn drawing challenge?

As I often have trouble remembering myself, we're only going into Autumn in the northern hemisphere.  For example, in Australia, they're going into Spring!

But what about Halloween?  I know screencasters have a couple of Halloween-related tutorials (http://screencasters.heathenx.org/episode-038/ and http://screencasters.heathenx.org/episode-040/).  Or there are always a lot of haunted houses these days, especially for charities, etc.  Maybe a Halloween party invitation, or poster for a haunted house?

Hhhmm....maybe I'll try a spooky tree....  Or we could go very simple, and just say -- draw a leaf?

oh yes, Halloween!
I like the idea of doing a party invitation.
 :gidea:
Leaves and harvest motifs would be great for November.
I saw the cutest Halloween costume today, and until then I had totally forgotten Halloween was so close.
I'll try to come up with an idea for a party theme and invitation.
thanks for posting the links for the tutorials, I have to go check them out.

Edit: Rather than double posting I decided to just add to this post.
I've tried a few ideas for Halloween party invitations,but so far I totally hate everything I've come up with.
I like dimensional cards...you know, the kind with pop-ups, window cut-outs,wierd shapes, and paper sculptured bits that make the card hard to mail, but those
dont look good at all when you post them as drawings. I Think I will just start over and try to come up with a new idea.
