October Monthly Challenge – Come join us! 🎆 Everyone Welcome!

Hello Artists and welcome to the October Monthly Challenge! The Challenge is an activity thread for artists of all experience levels working from photos chosen by a monthly host. Since this is a group activity, we can pool our knowledge and resources, and grow as artists in a fun, no-pressure atmosphere.

No critiques unless specifically asked for. Please, no harsh critique! The intent is to have fun, try new things, and experiment.

I have taken all this pictures, full resolution is available at the reference image library. Feel free to use or crop, adjust, rearrange, draw, paint, in any way you see fit. Anything goes (except for digital)! I tried to pick an assortment of different things so everyone is inspired.

Beautiful white horse.

Wow Maria! Lots of temptations in this lineup! The white horse has unusual markings. Each one has its own charm, so will be difficult to choose only one. Thanks for hosting!

Maria, nice! Thanks for hosting. No guarantees, I plan to work on the critters--the four-legged ones, that is!

Cool photos, Maria. I like the photo of your boy, hopefully I can paint him. My boy is a junior this year. Crazy how fast time goes by and they grow! Thanks for hosting the challenge.

Thanks, indeed, not sure where the time goes lately. My oldest will be 31 this year, and my little just turned 18. I cannot believe it.

When I posted the photo, I was thinking, mmmmm a cowboy with a Pokιmon shirt

Beautiful pen and ink version of the door, Virginia. The colors add light to the painting.
