sketch this featured challenge destinyblue Color as Emotion

Are you as excited about Sketch This as we are? We’ve got an extra special treat for you.

Each month, the SketchBook team will choose one challenge from Sketch This to be a featured challenge. We’ll announce the challenge right here on the blog! Anyone who enters the featured challenge will be eligible for gifts given out randomly during that month. How will you know if you won something? We’ll contact you through DeviantArt if you’ve been chosen. Sounds good, right? Enter the featured challenge, and you just might get lucky!

So without further delay, here’s the featured challenge until January 10th!



The colours I paint with talk a lot. They speak of love, of power, of past, all with their corresponding hues.

So, my challenge for you: Paint a scene where an emotion is depicted through colour.
Colours and emotions are natural allies: that burning red of anger, the radiant gold of tenderness, the hazy sepia of nostalgia. Get creative with combinations, you may depict any emotion you choose, using as many or as few colours as you like, in whatever scenario your imagination devises.

I love art because it can be such a powerful medium of connection, so I would love if your drawing made me feel something!



About DestinyBlue:

DestinyBlues paintings weave stories through colour and symbolism. Bristling with emotional electricity her works are instantly recognizable by their luminous colours and thought provoking concepts. Tugging at heartstrings, each painting invites you into another girl’s world.

Not doing commissions, or drawing for anything other than personal joy – and an emotional outlet – Blue works hard to keep her content independent and original. She travels the world to conventions, where she meets her supporters, sells her creations, and shares her stories.

Take part in his challenge for a chance to win a Wacom Intuos Pro Small, thanks to our friends at Wacom!
