Sooo decided to go with a roller disco party :p

But, not just a roller disco... they are skating on the worlds largest wacom intuous and each roller skate is a pen. the screen on the back wil be what the drawing they made

How do you guys like the concept? should i "roll with it"? hehehe... (i'm sorry)

my other idea was that their roller skates were actual brushes, with paint

I like the idea. I am working on a similar one, though a more modern twist. Where the individuals are part of the creative process of the party en mass. (I can share progress later as right now it is still too rough.) I say keep with the idea and looks good so far!

Yeah, that idea is cool and original, but add more people, so it would look like a party

Here's my idea. A party thrown by art supplies. They will be dancing(painting or drawing) all over the dance floor and making art on the walls. The thing in the corner is a pinata that i want to make look like Jazza surrounded by little pieces of chalk. I don't know why I'm making the children pieces of chalk but for some reason that made sense to me. Any input?

I don't usually show people my WIP's and this is my first COTM I've entered but I want to start putting my art out there.
So, this is the concept I'm going with, so far it's just a general layout of where I may want things and just begining to form the idea more strongly from my head. Some of the sizing is still off but that I'm going to focus on when it's digitalized.
When I originally heard 'arty party' the first thing that came to mind was a whole bunch of kids drawing on one very big paper/canvas.
So that's what I've decided to run with. It's a whole bunch of kids collabing with eachother in one epic piece of art. (With the babysitter sitting on the couch more entranced with her phone and tv then the kids)

I'm hoping this follows the guidelines, I do have a question though:
How can you tell what category you fall under? I.e., beginner, open, Scouted or unscouted

Hey, guys, I came up w/ a little surprise for Jazza. Personally, I have improved immensely largely due to his videos. I am quite young, and many would say I am a bit advanced compared to my peers. For those of you who have also benefited from Jazza's work, I was thinking that we could have some sort of message within our drawings. For example, in mine, I am drawing a large crowd in the backgrounds, so I am planning to have a small area in my canvas of myself cheering Jazza on; hopefully to show my gratitude. I was thinking that if we could all have something like this, we could...inspire Jazza or something. I know it's kind of a big deal to include something like that in your image, especially if you're not showing some sort of large crowd... Just an Idea.
Thanks!

That's pretty cool, i'm doing something kinda similar where i'm having a bunch of famous art pieces at a party dedicated to celebrating Jazza hit the 1 mil. mark! I plan on adding pieces from Picasso Davinci and the Newgrounds mascot as well

MadelineJackson: She came up with this cute concept of expressing gratitude to Jazza through our submissions. This is me sayin that I'm on board and I'm pretty sure all of you were already planning on it anyway, but still, if you read this I encourage you to incorporate this idea into your piece. :)

Yup, I'm doing a large crowd, and I'm also really young that is ''higher skilled'' in art school. Love the idea, so in the forground I'm drawing myself on a bench as joining the Arty Party.

This is my first time participating in the challenge, Well I started the january one but I couldn't complete my drawing by the dead line.
This is what I've done so far, It's just the sketch and some dirty lines but I think it's getting form. I wanted to draw an outside party with some pleople painting graffitis on the Wall and the rest of them creating different kinds of art, all surrounded by a very vivid and warm atmosphere.
What do you guys think???

Hello guys!

This is the first competition I've ever been in for art and I'm entering the beginners category...(?) Maybe. It's not decided just yet.

Anyways, this is my sketch.
It's very rough...
