Greetings to all steemians! This is my third art contest on here!
Probably some of you have heard of
🍌Drawing with a twist #1🍌

🍓Easy mini art contest #1🍓
I know I haven't continued any of these yet, I just thought of another contest as a means of giving back to all my wonderful steemian family. This time, it is


Often times I hear my friends say
💢oh, you guys go ahead, I CANT DRAW💢
💢Yup, that's not for me💢
💢Can I draw a stick man?💢

How can I possibly leave out all the others who say No? This time it's your time to shine dear friends ✌️

Let's turn it around!

Now, I believe steemit has inspired and pushed me to go beyond my limits and succeed.
As a visual artist, I would love to express how important art is to me and, I am stressing out here that

🎨Art can change your life🎨

The use of art is unlimited. It can be a:

  • Tool to inspire
  • A medium of expression
  • Way to vent out
  • Creative way to recycle
  • Release emotional stress and burdens
  • Life saver
  • Key to appreciating nature
  • Spread beauty
    Moreover, it can mean anything to the artist, or the non artist.

Many Dream but few take the chance to make it

Over the years I often hear friends complain about art school being hard to reach or a dream being so far away

Drawing is not so hard my friend. You will see if you join this challenge! You will awaken the artist in you!

These words have struck me the most amongst all I've read. I hope this holds true to you too.

(1) "Art washes away from the soul, the dust of everyday life" - Pablo Picasso

(2) "Every child is an artist, the problem is to remain an artist omce he grows up" - Pablo Picasso

No. 1 expresses motivation to draw. Art brings a fresh breeze to the stuffy confined soul. It unearths the treasure within the soul. An expression and vision of beautiful things. Also, a means of speaking visually the truth
Many people are interested in making and seeing art for these reasons. Why not? It is the prime cause of art, to add beauty to life either physically or emotionally.

No. 2 expresses the decision people make with art. Many people will lose interest. Many will give up. Many do not have the chance to grow as artists. But these factors should not stunt your growth. Obstacles are natural, hoping you overcome them and see that everyone starts as a newbie, a level zero, a nobody.
I started from there as well.

  • I have tried to draw portraits at the age of six and eight years old but I gave up.
  • At 15 I found interest in art again and tried different art styles.
  • At 18, I took finearts class.
  • At 19… I stopped drawing.
  • At 22, I started drawing again.
  • At 24, I am still drawing and have much improved.
    And I will still continue.


To join this art contest, all you need to be is a blank slate

  • no experience needed
  • Just a pencil, eraser and paper
  • No rulers
  • have a will to start and finish the task
  • Learn as much as you can
  • Appreciate the experience

Just repeat after me

Let's begin with the elements of art and principles of design.

Wait, why does this sound so complicated?

Actually, these are formal art processes we will go through. Just draw the following images you will see.


I will give you two images to copy, this will serve as a warm up, and as a drawing exercise. (I also have samples)
Yes, this will be part of the judging criteria
The last is application where you combine what you learned from task 1 and 2.

(1) ✏️ Let's Warm up with Lines and shapes

visual arts of any form has a common point, these are lines and shapes. Start by using an empty piece of paper and make panels and draw these lines. Just let your pencil flow

  • You can fill the panel or get creative with it. Just choose from letters A - Z
    Look what I did here:

(2) ✏️ Shapes and shading Exercises

Don't be afraid of shading, shading is just putting criss cross lines and dashes and zig zags to fill your Art
See the drawing I made, no need for a ruler, just draw the shapes and shade them.

(3) ✏️ Application

create a work of art applying task 1 and 2

drawing isnt purely good technical skill, what can be more appreciated is the creativity of it.

🌠let the ideas, fun, and imagination run!✨🌟

Finally, a drawing contest that meets my qualifications. :D


Is that a "yes i am totally joining?"

Nice post and contest, syempre sasali. :D


Yes!!! Napasali na ♥️♥️♥️♥️

Wow I'm glad you have another contest. I was so blessed to join your past contest. More blessing my friend.


Hi thank you @fukumineko
Bless you!
More art more fun!
♥️♥️♥️ Let's give others a chance :)
This is very basic so I hope they enjoy it.

The timing for this couldn't be more perfect. I came to Steemit looking for art groups and haven't had much luck finding them. Consequently I've been posting mainly photographs.

Today I dragged myself to the attic (where I do my art) for the first time this year but wasn't feeling very inspired.

I decided to try and create something fast (not too much time to think) for the yellow colorchallenge and was waiting for paint to dry when I saw this contest.

I can't draw for toffees. It is a family joke. But you've inspired me to have a go. I reckon I can do lines and shapes.


Oh my thats amazing then! :D
Im glad this contest reached you :)
Thats nice to know, it all starts with lines and shapes!
Looking forward to see your entry!

Hay, Salamat @jacinta.sevilla! See you on the 8th day. Hihihi. #challengeaccepted


go go go!!!!!!!!!!!!! :) awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! thanks


Wooh! Are there any other steemian's who do non-artist art contests too? Hahaha. Who knows I might learn drawing/sketching/painting through following non-artist art contests. Hahaha. If that happens that would be a heck of a testimony on how steemit facilitates personal development. Hahaha. Funny thought.


wah! thats my point!!!!!!! :D na himo gani kong singer ug writer diria.
ma artist gyud mo!
I plan to continue this contest :D hoping more join!

who knows you might love art more than you expect
I dont know
i think this is the first time Ive ever thought of a contest for the non artist :D


Ipadayon ha? Malipay gyod ang mga whales nimo. You might be a whale yourself pod. Self-portrait den next challenge xD


Pwede pud!!! Ang madaog sa self portrait newbie version kay himuan nakog portrait pud. Dala steem na prize. Thanks sa idea ;D
Salamat sa encouragement.
Unta ma whale nako. Char (ambisyosa)
Pero basta give and give Lang ta to each other.


@jacinta.sevilla, dili naman kailangan iapil ang step 1 ug step 2 sa pagpost diba? dretso nas application?

I think is good contest, it's give the chance to non artis to try drawing, only you thought like that and I supported it. Let them do art. I can't participate in this contest but I will wait for the next contest for artis, hehehe.

Hi @jacinta.sevilla :) I'm not sure if I did it correctly to participate your contest but I plucked up some courage and thought maybe I have a try. What I did basically was just follow your lil encouraging tutorial to draw lines and curves and shapes. Hahaha!

Here's my link:


Oops! Forgot to post my entry @jacinta.sevilla. I'm tempted to do another one that is a pattern. I'd be better at that! 😁
