It's ok to take the stuff I drew today a bit further for tomorrows submission right? I was just going to spend an hour or two each time over a few days on the same study until I feel like I learnt what I wanted, and use that as my Draw Every Day.
a surprising amount of tumblrs
on a side note, jerrybreem you should link to the picture and not just your tumblr page, I can't access that without having an account and god knows I don't want one
I don't think he wants other people to appreciate anyway.
ah, okay i actually don't know how to use the tumblr crap thing but i figured that since my market is there i might start learning.
I've been trying to come up with a solution that would work with so many different blogs/image hosts and the best I can come up with is to make it possible to add a thumbnail to your submissions.
It'd be on the submitter to do it but I can make the process as painless as possible by adding a crop tool to the site.
That way the site doesn't look bad, I'm not stuck with a huge hosting bill and you get click-through to your blogs.
That's the best I can think of at 2am
Thanks for the quick link!
Inktober almost killed me and I could barely draw for the rest of the year, I might pop in a bit later when i have a more regular schedule.
Best of luck to you all!
You can go ahead and delete ab's submission, I'm done, couldn't really find anything at all (sadly?), in either submitting, registering and general spamming. Only thing would be you check the headers of submitted links (in php get_headers($url)) and check they're 200 OK and Content-Type: image/* (would reject imgur album links, but having only direct image links seems best if you're gonna change it to more of a gallery view).
I don't think it'd be too bad if it were limited to a few common sites if necessary. The most common links I'm seeing so far are imgur, tumblr, deviantArt, and 4chan. All of those sites also create their own thumbnails, so it might be possible to steal those for the image preview without having to host them yourself. I don't know how easy that would be to actually implement though.
PLEASE make the first week challenge a sonic themed character design challenge.
Last time this happened (it was a concept art challenege if I'm not mistaken), people were bitching about how it was a scheme from some company to get free work/ designs.
For some reason dumbasses on this place think that challenge/theme =ZOMG someone wants to steal my awesome arts and OC.
We'd just have to stick with it for a couple of threads instead of immediately giving up after the first one. Also if we just copied old CA.org challenge topics or sketch daily topics far less people would be paranoid about it than if the OP makes up his own brief. Which is what was done last time with that survival horror topic.
Yeah, basically we'll all start from square one with a set of videos I have in mind like a school and do its assignments for the week: https://www.patreon.com/Foundation?ty=h
is what I had in mind
Here's my schedule for the day:
>draw something for the challenge
>build a proper dev environment
>create and test the elimination system
>update the submissions page
The submissions page is garbage and needs to be improved asap. It'd be my highest priority if the others weren't critical to the success of the challenge.
I don't want to limit which hosts you can link to so I'm going to create a system where you can link to your post and then add a thumbnail. I'll make the process painless as possible.
Ideally everything will be ready before 00:00 but if anything's left behind it'll be the gallery and I'll have it ready later tonight.
ps: topics and themes will come but based on the comments and emails I think having thumbnails is a higher priority
There's like seven hours left, if you have time to post on /ic/ you have time to do a 30 minute sketch. Or even do a page of gestures in a few minutes. If you can't do it already, you're not going to make it for the weeks to come.
yeah. if you submitted today then once it hits 00:00 you'll have 24 hours to submit before your token will be taken. if you miss the next day you're out
if you haven't submitted yet then no worries. you have until 23:59:59 GMT on Friday to submit. The token will only be used if you've joined and then miss a day.
you should be able to, only issue is that when you login to a new location it will log you out of the old one
I made a quick update to the logged in one so you can see ones you've already visited. i've also resorted them so new submissions appear at the top
>you should be able to, only issue is that when you login to a new location it will log you out of the old one
it's part of the site. there's a CRON job that runs everyday at 00:00 that checks
>did they submit in the last 24 hours
>if not do they have the token
>if so eat the token
>else eliminate them
there's another function that checks people who don't have token to see if 30 days have pass so they can get a new one.
it's pretty straight forward
if that's a pain i can update it someday. I went overboard on security ou of fear of the dreaded hacker 4chan

Hmm, I didn't realize that it was GMT time when I submitted yesterday. Not sure if I submitted in time since I submitted at 9:30pm PST.
Is there something on the website that will tell me if I'm out or not?
Check if your submission is here:
You may have submitted during the test period when I opened submissions right before I took the site down to go live. If that's the case it's no worries.
Even then, you can join any time this week and the only way you'll be eliminated is if you post and then stop posting
i see some people are updating their submissions with new drawings: crmbsct, loomis
did you do it because you wanted something different for your first day? cause the first day doesnt end for another 4 hours
Newfag to this, when can we post our day 2 drawings? I already submitted my (shitty) art for day one but not sure when to submit for day 2. Is there a specific time or something? I don't want to eliminated this early.
I noticed some people were linking to 4chan, puu.sh, etc and those images will eventually die. I rehosted them on imgur, updated the submissions and blacklisted the domains of temporary image hosts. Just an fyi in case anyone wonders why their url changed.
there's a timer. it ends in 3 hours fyi (00:00 GMT)
is there away to change my name? i was drunk and picked the gayest sounding name possible as a goof.
I'd do it for the lulz and to get it out of my system
we could also crown somebody king autist and give him a fitting badge :^)
you can join any time this week but dont you want to be in on day 1
It's pretty sad that someone who has a relatively decent understanding of shape and volume gets banned for "low effort" just because of the subject matter whereas people who scribble some petty pencil "gestures" get off for free. Hope it's not permanent.
Yeah he's not banned. It's a joke from a couple days ago when I first created the submissions page and I created a custom tag for anyone that helped test it.
I'm not the art police. If your host will host it then submit it. I'll let the community police low effort drawings with the tribunal system when it's released
Challenges haven't been implemented it seems, but I think a few people are taking the Sonic challenge seriously.
Also Turrnip, on record, you overwritten your first drawing. You should submit the drawing from yesterday as today's just so that it is official
Alright guys the plan for tonight is to create a new submissions page that looks more like a traditional gallery (previews/thumbnails, grid layout, etc.)
I've created a dev environment so there shouldn't be any interuptions with the site. If you have anything you'd like to see on the page besides being able to favorite/follow artists let me know.
official topics are still at least a week away. If you guys want to come up with a theme for yourselves then i guess up with some options and i can stick a poll on the site for everyone to vote on
what more surprising that they are plenty of others artist on this board that are doing their own thing.
I don't know, maybe more will join the future but this number that turn out is great.
yeah it doesn't accurately represent the day on which they submitted since it's literally just a counter of how many days they submitted with "Day" prefixed on.
The data's all there with the correct timestamps I just put that there cause it looked bad without something and it took 3 seconds to add it. I'll fix it when I get to user profiles but I'll change Day to # for now
This system is so good.
It's the second day and yet I'm itching to draw more the moment I finish with today's drawing - making it into a game and into something to strive for that "shows instantly" (daily) is wildly motivating.
Thank you, OP. I feel great. I couldn't draw anything for the whole first week of 2016. In comparison, I've drawn nonstop for the last two days.
you say that now but it wont seem so trivial when theres a dragon dick badge on the line
I bet this is secretly a way for OP to hoard images to start his online art shop
thanks, I wish I started with figure studies though, a bunch of studies for tomorrow.
the submissions page shows the current day's submissions for the time being. i'm working on a new page right now that'll be more of a gallery style and will show past submissions. if you click on view all you can see yesterday's too
If everyone here is looking for a community, we're already 22 trusted artist in our discord server and we're looking for more !
Feel free to join ! We will give us daily / weekly challenges and follow courses all together.
Say I get up at 11:30 pm and submit shortly after. The next day is saturday so I sleep in until 01:00 am which means I'm fucked unless I submitted another one on the evening prior which would mean that I submitted twice on (my) day 1 and don't have to submit on (my) day 2 at all.
I don't think this is gonna work for me.
Well you've missed yesterday, but there's a rule if you post double the amount of drawings today to make up for it, it's fine. I'm not sure how that's implemented since it's one submission a day.
You could just draw one thing every day and then submit two in one day. So you'd be drawing a bit ahead. But since the rounds run 24 hours, I don't understand how it wouldn't work unless you're sleeping for 24 hours.
In hindsight it should've started a timer once you submit something so that you can set your next timeframe yourself
You could reset it constantly by submitting something every hour or so but of you don't post anything, your limit will be 24 hours
That way it would still be at least a drawing every day
the system doesn't encourage you to draw everyday. You're allowed a miss day which you have to make up for the next day with a double post. If you miss again within 30 days then you're eliminated
>draw day 1
>miss day 2
>double post day 3 to catch up
>miss any day from 4-33 and you're eliminated
I don't know why you're so hung up on the clock. If the deadline is midnight for you then submit before midnight everyday. If you wake up some days at 11pm and some days at 1am then just submit everyday at noon
>What the fuck is a job?
Also: What you're describing in the first post does in fact encourage you to draw every day on 29 out of 30 days. The situation they were deliberating would also have come up every single week which makes the voucher useless for them.
I don't get that there's a problem here, you have to submit once in 24 hours, whenever you draw the thing in that time is completely up to you. Then just submit one time between the clock ticking over one way or another. I drew two things as this started so that I could get my schedule set so I can submit like an hour after the day change, and then have all day to do the next piece, no rush.
People have jobs, others have school, others don't have anything. Of course the game is set such that the person with the most time on their hands has the best chance of "winning", but what really is winning? The point is to get people to practice and draw something every day. Honestly you could post sketches you did years ago and call it a day, but as some other anon said, you are only fooling yourself.
Think of how the sentence would sound if spoken, and pay attention to if there's a slightly longer pause between "every" and "day." Alternatively, remember that "every day" is an adverb and "everyday" is an adjective. In most cases you'll be using "every day." It's alright Lavaflake, I'll be here for you until it sticks.
>>What the fuck is a job?
Are you at work for 16hrs a day? The anon in question can do their drawing after they wake up and before work, or after work but before they go to sleep. I have trouble imagining what timezone that would prevent anybody from posting at one of those two times everyday.
If the only free time slot is around the 12am GMT mark, then do two drawings the first day so that you can post early the next "day" consistently like anon >>2344413 mentioned.
Quick question: should the new submissions section contain submissions from only the current day or from the last 24 hours?
The current system (current day only) gives it a fresh feeling cause they're all new but it looks pretty depressing to see 93 participants but only 13 entries (because we're only 2 hours into the day)
What do you think? Current day or last 24 hours
Current day system forces you into a habit of getting work done. So the slight pressure is good for all in the long run.
Also it's the entries will middle out to the core group that will be consistently working daily, only natural.
Question OP, what are you thoughts on people jumping back into the challenge the day after if they were eliminated?
>load more button at the bottom
Please no, can we have pages instead? It makes it so much easier to find something specific and loading them all to the beginning could get pretty cluttered if there's a lot of submissions. I don't think we need pages yet though, maybe once we're regularly getting over 100 submissions per day, with 50-100 on a page.
Singed up late and had only 20min time, didn't make it in time and not sure if my record is fucked now even though I posted
Was your submission in day one or day two? The time you submit doesn't matter as long as it's within the 24-hour period. If it was on day two, your score will be one day behind ours, but as people gradually drop out or forget a day you can catch up. Your streak doesn't start until your first submission, so even if you signed up on day one but didn't post until day two, you won't be eliminated unless you miss a day from now on. At least, I believe that's how it is.
Porque no los dos
I like the idea of having the current day, which could have like 5 pics if you're one of the early birds, but then if you scroll down you can see what everyone did yesterday. Otherwise if you can only dump sketches early before you then go to work or whatever, you don't really get to see anyone else's stuff.
>Question OP, what are you thoughts on people jumping back into the challenge the day after if they were eliminated?
The current system doesn't even let you post if you get eliminated but I'll change that. It won't be possible to jump back into a challenge you've already been eliminated from but I will make it so that you can keep submitting if you are. Once the week ends your submissions will auto-enter you into the new challenge
>Please no, can we have pages instead?
Yeah good point load mores are annoying as hell. I'll make it so that you navigate by "previous page" "next page" and maybe include some of the previous day when there are less than X current submissions or something
>Singed up late and had only 20min time, didn't make it in time and not sure if my record is fucked now even though I posted
Don't worry, if you post at any point during the first week then you're part of the week 1 original challenge. That'll be the big one. It doesn't matter if you're a day late
No worries then, you're still part of the original contest. Let's say it's down to you and someone that was from day 1. If they drop out and you submit on that same day it doesn't mean you've won yet. You'd need to submit one more day to tie and then another to win to make up for having started a day later.
You're still in the fight.
The new submissions page is coming along pretty nicely
Yeah by default NSFW get a special thumbnail and you'll be able to disable it in your profile.
Not so much anymore, it's all wordpress and bootpress themes these days. There's nothing wrong with that but I like custom projects and they're too expensive
Yeah I've already downsize them 33% so there's an extra row. I really liked it at first but they're just too big
I wish there was some kind of daily topic. I really want to keep participating in this but I feel I won't last long if I'm only asked to draw whatever I want.
I'm of course not forcing everyone else to do this, but some kind of optional topic/goal would be nice.
I must admit, I'm getting a little envious at how much work some of you are putting into your submissions. That Turrnip guy looks like he really buckled down and drew some shit. Hopefully I'll be able to deliver some good hard work as well.
Just getting a feel of the place before I start submitting weeb shit everywhere.
A visual divider where each days submissions end would be fine, with a whole weeks worth loaded on the page at a time. Maybe less than a week if you start loading thumbnails and we still have a lot of participants. Ideally there'd be an option to choose how many past submissions load for you, so we can pick ourselves.
I updated the site with the submissions page progress if you guys want to check it out and let me know what you think. There are a bunch of missing images since I'm currently using the provided url as a thumbnail (a lot of people link directly to their blogs.)
I'll make it look pretty later but let me know if the layout works
There's just not enough space for the whole URL but I don't want to send people to a link blindly so I put the domain at the bottom.
Oh and I also set it so the current day is sorted new > old and the previous pages to old > new. I'm hoping this encourages earlier posting since it gives people a better spot in the archives
Nice, I like the thumbnails. And at first I thought the NSFW thumbnail was too subtle, but then I realized the low contrast makes the thumbnail itself more work-safe, since it doesn't look like a warning and the word "dicks" isn't obvious. So good thinking.
Oh yeah haha I was just using that as a placeholder cause it's 2am and I thought it was funny. I'll probably just replace it with a similar low contrast image except have it say NSFW or something
I realize now that it's a bit of a pain to open them all so I'll make some changes. Actually I'll add an options button and you'll be able to:
>show all of the image headers/footers without needing to hover
>make the background image clickable
>add an option to switch between a list and grid view
This new view looks better but it'd be a pain to view 100 images with it
Yep, if you enter any time during the first week you can win it all. I explained it to this guy here >>2344496
How do the thumbnails work? I'm getting rows of 3, and increasing/decreasing my browser zoom doesn't effect their size at all. I'm not used to this magic.
I like it though, I like that they're huge too.
Oh you may have loaded the page right as I was rolling back the changes. You should only ever see 5, 4, 2 or 1 columns and they're based on how wide your browser is. If you saw 3 then odds are it was mid rollback where they are HUGE because it loaded the wrong css file.
It's back to the boring list view now
Currently there isn't a "vacation" system and I don't know if something like that can exist. How long could you go and how often? Would you have to make it up with a huge image dump when you get back or would you have to submit/schedule them in advance.
Either option's possible but I don't know if that's what everyone wants. I made sure the site was mobile friendly so as long as you have a phone or wifi you should be good.
Instead of making a bunch of strawpolls I made a quick google docs survey. Let me know what you guys want and I'll implement it
I'll embed it into the site as well
Nope, currently you have to submit everyday. If you miss a day then you'll get a warning and need to make up for it with a double post the next day. If you don't, or if you miss again within a month then you'll be eliminated
I really like the idea of a vacation mode. Sometimes life just gets in the way of what you want to do, and this would prevent luck-based loss of streak in events that are more substantial than the token covers. And I don't have a smartphone, and I'm sure many other anons don't either, so I don't have the internet available at all times. I think a catch-up would be better than a bulk post, since instead of drawing a bunch in advance, you could continue with your daily schedule and just post those when you have internet access or the time to focus on this again. Temporary business, like needing to set aside art during finals week, doesn't reflect a poor work ethic. Since this site is to enforce a solid work ethic, I think slight leniences like this are necessary to make it as fair as possible.
I honestly want to implement a vacation system but really if someone's going to take 2 weeks off because they're feeling lazy do you really think they're going to come back with 15 updates to submit? I think it benifits the dedicated travellers more than it does the slackers
>There's free wifi everywhere
>if not then its a 3rd world shithole
Nice to see from the responses that most people agree in not having a vacation mode. If you're going to be away, you have to plan for it, and catch up when you get back or just draw on holiday. It's not that hard.
Robogabo's sketchbook on conceptart still gets daily updates (whenever the site isn't down), and he's been doing that since 2007. Even though he's worked at Bungie and all sorts of places he's kept it going, and if he can, we can too.
I think it's understandable that people might have to take time off, but I think that's not the point of this challenge.
I don't think I have the willpower not to get lazy, that's why I joined this, because it will force me to keep drawing. Knowing I can take advantage of the system will probably lead to me taking advantage of the system.
Hey OP what is going on with pic related
if I enter my submission now, will it be counted for yesterday or is this a typo?
try refreshing the page, if you still see that then the system thinks you haven't submitted today and you have 3h37m before the day ends to submit.
what's your username? have you submitted yet today?
if you haven't entered yet and you're wondering about "Last Artist Standing #1" it's because entry to the challenge is open all week. As long as you start submitting during the first week you'll be in the race #1
yeah I have not entered yet, I was gone in the morning and when I came back I saw this and wanted to confirm it's for day 2 before I upload my picture
thanks, I'll be done soon, hopefully
someone teach me how to figure draw i feel i'm stumbling down a wall.

so if your late it prevents you from posting? or does it just post for the following day?
miss a day and you get a warning and have to double post the next day to make up for it. miss another day within a month and you're eliminated. if you're eliminated you'll still be able to post it just wont count towards a challenge until the next one starts (saturday 00:00 GMT)
ps i'm working on the whole elimination/token/catch up system now and it's a nightmare. i'm racing against the clock to have it ready in 2.5 hours. i shouldnt have put so much work into the gallery when this wasnt ready
ps the image gallery is almost ready
i emailed him and messaged him on imgur but no rely. i'd even update his link if the album on his profile worked but it says it was removed. he might get a warning i guess. he posted the same wrong link yesterday so maybe he'll smarten up
Not the guy you're replying to, but I'm going backpacking through rural Japan and Taiwan in a few months and even Tokyo is kind of a wifi desert. There will be days where I'll be drawing, but have no internet.
It's more effort but I think vacation mode should be more of an appeals process, just so people who need it can have it, but not everyone will have the option to abuse it.
