Hi, I am new here. So, which is August challenge? Sorry… still finding my way around here.
LuigiL Featured By Owner Aug 14, 2016  Professional
Hi! The group is going on a hiatus but there are many challenges from previous months that you are more than welcome to use! There are no deadlines or strict rules on only submitting work for that month's challenge so feel free! I hope you enjoy them!
mateusboga Featured By Owner Aug 28, 2016   Digital Artist
so whenever a challenge is posted it's available to take on at any time?
LuigiL Featured By Owner Aug 29, 2016  Professional
Yes that's exactly right! I prefer having no deadlines :)

If anyone wants to see their character talk, just show me the character, and give me the text you want it to say! Works best with humanoids, but animals or anything with a face will do.  The mouth should be closed for best results.
ArtreneKoh Featured By Owner Aug 7, 2016  New Deviant  Digital Artist
Hey, are you doing it for free. If not, what is the cost?
talkr Featured By Owner Aug 8, 2016  New Deviant
Hi ArtreneKoh,

You have some awesome characters!  I think the purple punk would work the best because his mouth is closed.  Want me to try it out with him? 

Yeah, I'm doing it for free!  I'm trying to let artists know about our new iPhone app.  I think it will help the deviantArt community members get their art to "speak" to them.

If you want to try the app for yourself, sign up for the beta at  It is completely free.  When we release the app in a month or so,  there will be a few in-app purchases, but you will still be able to try it out for free.
ArtreneKoh Featured By Owner Aug 8, 2016  New Deviant  Digital Artist
Thanks for the reply, talkr. The idea sounds fun and interesting. I am sure the DA community will love it. I am interested to try it out. You can use the Purple punk, or any whichever you feel appropriate. 
Is the app only available in iPhone? I am using Samsung though.

is participation mandatory? I'm often busy with my LP vids, writing, homelife, stuff like that so I might not be able to partake in every challenge.
WesleyRiot Featured By Owner Jul 5, 2016  Professional Filmographer
no, just do whichever challenges you can whenever you can. It's more about developing your own skills!
