Mystery Cave Quick Sketch Challenge

Something new for The Mystery Cave and we need YOUR help to make it work!

Henry and I have been having a blast each week drawing characters that we think are cool or fun to interpret and we definitely thank you for taking the time to check them out. However, we also wanted to find a way to sometimes work in some characters that YOU would like to see drawn. So we've come up with The Mystery Cave Quick Sketch Challenge.

It's simply a one-hour sketch-off between Henry and me (Niall) with the character suggestion coming from someone other than ourselves. We're still going to be doing our more involved illustrations for the Cave, but from time to we'll thrown in one of these Quick Sketch Challenges. It's a way for us to challenge ourselves (and each other) and for you to be involved in helping us choose a character to draw.

We're going to be doing the first Quick Sketch Challenge tonight: Friday, November 23, 2012  at 11pm. If you have a (fairly) well-known pop culture character in mind that you'd like to see us interpret, well, all you have to do is be the first person to leave your character suggestion as a comment on THIS post, here on the Mystery Cave blog (NOT Facebook), timestamped 11:00pm tonight or after, and we'll try to draw the character you've chosen. Our posts will go up by 12:00am. If either of us go past that deadline, well, that will simply be an excruciatingly heavy and infinitely embarrassing burden of shame for that artist to bear.

Well? Are you up for it? If so, see you tonight at 11pm!

Niall and Henry

  2. That was just a test above to see if comments were working. Looks good. Game on!

  3. On behalf of Kelly Roblin: ET, Extraterrestrial!

    1. Ha ha - I love E.T., but I'm sorry to say no suggestions count until 11:00 pm. Soon as the clock strikes 11, fire away!

  4. Oh yeah - I need to say: please make it a FICTIONAL character!

  5. The golden girls! Or if you want only one...Sophia!

  6. We're going with with that. Thanks, Liz!

  7. Awesome. This is such a great project!
