Hey everyone. I just wanted to let you all know that this group will be going on a hiatus this year. I have a lot of things I need to focus on, so I wont have time to create monthly challenges. Hopefully you will all understand.

Please feel free to submit to previous challenges though, I'll be around to accept submissions as long as they are challenge related.
It's been really fun working on challenges for this group and hopefully I'll have time to get back to it in the future.

Take care!

HI! Have you created a November challenge yet?

I am new here, sorry!
LuigiL Featured By Owner Nov 2, 2016  Professional
Cool, welcome to DAC. The new challenge was just posted! Check out the journal for the reference shape :)

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.

Hey, are you doing it for free. If not, what is the cost?
talkr Featured By Owner Aug 8, 2016
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   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.
