Pay It Forward Entry - Week 14

in #curation3 years ago (edited)

EDIT : due to lack of memory in my brain, I forgot that I recently featured @scrawly. I will keep them in, but add an extra blogger (not yet done) in an hour or two.

EDIT2: It has been fixed now, edited the order as well, to have the 2 new bloggers at the top.

EDIT3: IBT enrollments have begun. I have added those links.

This is my entry for Week 14 of the Pay it Foward Curation contest by @thedarkhorse and @pifc.

Happy belated Independence Day to all bloggers in the United States! If my memory of a recent documentary "Independence Day" serves me right, it is a day for celebrating the repelling of alien invaders from the Earth. Led nobly by the President in a fighter jet?

Artwork and sketches

@veryspider is another #teamaustralia member that constantly is posting great artwork and sketches. For some reason, I thought I had featured them recently (when in fact I had featured @scrawly), I blame that on my general lack of memory and sleep.

Anyway, this post is a great sketch of girl/boy with an amusing story. There is also a nice video to accompany the artwork, in a step-by-step animation. As a complete novice to making drawing art, I am amazed to see how it all comes together. Normally, I would just start with a circle for the head and then try to wing it from there! Somehow, it looks like that these guys have the image already in their head, and just begin drawing almost fully formed!

Interactive Battle Tournament (IBT)

@lordnigel is also another #teamaustralia member, and this is going to be a tricky one to describe. He has created a Steem-based RPG that runs over a week for multiple players! This is the Interactive Battle Tournament (IBT), and to do this he combines some nifty bots and his own writing style for some really enjoyable fun!

At the moment, the IBT is down for bot testing and development. So I'll provide some links to get a taster and to help describe it:

Artwork and Sketches

While browsing through the #teamaustralia feed, I always see @scrawly pop up with amazing sketches! However, I've never been able to feature them due to the high REP. So this week, I'm seizing the opportunity to feature their artwork and blog. You can see the latest post here: Shinigami. If you get a chance, click through to the step-by-step that is hosted on Imgur (linked below the picture). It is always amazing to see how it all comes together!

Epic bonus post




This epic post of @dreemsteem is worthy of attention! Well, actually in the end the comment section is pretty cool!
