Hello, and welcome to [community profile] drawesome! We are a friendly community of fan-artists who enjoy drawing. We hope to inspire and motivate each other to practice and hone our drawing skills in a stress-free, supportive environment.

As a start, I'm thinking maybe weekly themed drawing exercises to get the ball rolling, as well as larger collaborative projects later on. Stay tuned!

Please feel free to drop by and say hello in the Introduce Yourself post. :)

Title: Excalibur
Artist: [personal profile] goss
Rating: G
Fandom: Merlin (BBC)
Characters/Pairings: Arthur Pendragon (with Excalibur)
Content Notes: This one's a pencil sketch. My choice of object was inspired by this gif set on Tumblr. I had to make up certain parts of the sword for both perspective drawings, and found this YouTube vid really helpful as a starting point: How to draw a sword in perspective.

Title: Bulletproof
Artist: [personal profile] goss
Rating: G
Fandom: Wonder Woman (2017), DCU
Characters/Pairings: Diana
Content Notes: This is a quick one, sketched with pencil. Don't have the time to do a proper watercolour painting job as yet. So in the mean time, I've added some digital tinting in Photoshop, as well as played around with the lighting. I actually like the results. ^___^ Inspired by Titanium by David Guetta featuring Sia (Ricochet, you take your aim, fire away...).

Remix Revival 2017

In case anyone else has been hanging out for a panfandom remix exchange that allows for fanart as well as fanfic.

I've linked this a few places because I am super excited. Afaict the only other time there's been a panfandom fanart remix exchange was the one I ran in 2014, [community profile] fanartremix. Which was lots of fun but taught me that I am not up for modding exchanges, so I have spent the last three years sadly waiting for someone else to create another opportunity. And now they have :D

If you want to see some other fanart remixes there was a bunch for Ladystuck Remix 2016.

Title: Good Morning Starshine  on AO3
Artist: [personal profile] mific 
Rating: Teen
Fandom: Stargate Atlantis
Characters/Pairings: Rodney McKay/John Sheppard
Content Notes: The morning after John and Rodney's first time. Warning only for extreme sappiness and fluff.  Pencil drawing.
I happened to be listening to some old 'blast from the past' sixties classics, and felt like drawing the boys.
Rodney's so smug and happy the next morning John can't resist grabbing his guitar and singing 'Good Morning Starshine' to him - one of the first songs he ever learned to play. Rodney scoffs at the ridiculous 'nibby nabby noopy' lyrics, but he finds himself humming it off and on all day in the labs, and smiling. (Here's an especially cute Muppet version of the song).

 Last week I did Dean, so this week it's Sam's turn. The prompt was a word - villainous. So I had to try Samifer, and then I had to gif it. I'm still not very slick at this animation business but it's fun.
