Neko here! My first journal to this group x3
About time to have one of these! This challenge is a not so serious, but very skill improving one. And if you beat it, you will feel very awesome!So, what is this challenge?
24 Challenge, means 24 pages of comic done in 24 hours! (or just set of themed artwork if you don't like comics)
But this certain time is set to start in a certain minute, when everyone who's in starts! And the challenge ends after 24 hours have passed since that minute.How does it work?
You are allowed to do ANYTHING inside this time, you can even do all the pages in the last hour if you believe in your skill!
You can do each page in ½ hour, so you can sleep and nom the rest of the time! Or you can stay awake the whole time and do each page in 1 hour!What are you not allowed to do?
Do not plan any of the comic, story, beforehand, you must do all the planning inside the time!
Of course basic ideas will come to your head before, but don't plan them too much or write on paper! This is hard to control, but the best way is to be honest to yourself! That's where all the fun comes from!What you should do before the challenge starts
See what quality level you can draw in your set time for one page! Test your skills in speed.
Not everyone can apply colours to a full comic page inside a hour! So either do only grayscale, lineart or sketch even.Lower quality to gain more speed!
This is what the challenge is about!
Also decide what medium you will work with! Get tools before you start! And think of a good place where you will not feel horrible to stay possibly the whole 24 hours!Why do the challenge? I don't feel like I can do it
This challenge will improve your skill, and you will get used to the speed in a few pages! I promise!
I've done this before, and it's really fun! Best to even ask friends over to motivate you, stream your work and once a while look how others are doing!You don't have to do a comic necessary. It can be a set of 24 pages with themed artwork!
The thing is that they need to link with eachother in a way!
Also! Your skill level is not important! Everyone can take the challenge! If you feel like you can't finish it on time, lower quality in the end! But this is why it's good to test your speed beforehand!When will this be!
We are planning to have this on 23th of July! It's saturday!
Time is not set yet! So now I ask you what would the best time be?
Last time I started in the evening 6pm of my time, so late hours is not a problem with me, that means americans will start in the morning! Which is better if you want to stay awake the whole time!
So suggestions are welcome!
My suggestion is 3pm GMT.
Here's the proof it can be done! XD
My 24h comic from last year.neko-maya.deviantart.com/galle…
I did one page in a bit less than a hour, I did not sleep, but I did wander around the house several times and ate about twice something. I used pencils, inks, copics, watercolours and white marker pretty much. And I also had depression and drama at the same time, but I didn't let it affect too much!
