I saw the video 10 mins after it uploaded. After watching the video, I knew I'd have to participate, and felt inspired

I've quickly thrown together a concept I had. By no means is it the best - a few things are off - but I might as well get opinions before I do anything else.

(I'm going to focus more on the anatomy of the digital human when I actually digitalize it. And yes, im aware that the gun points well over the dragon's head, even before the knockback.)

Also, if it wasn't clear in the image (I doubt it was), the dragon is, well, just a normal dragon while the human fighting the dragon is geared up with futuristic gadgets. Both of these characters are, in fact, characters of mine. And yes, currently this is on line paper because I have no access to normal paper.

I'm pretty excited to see what everyone will come up with for this. I've gotten myself a couple step ahead of this idea but I wish the best of luck to everyone else. Here's my progress so far, will look back at other people progress, hopefully, in the end, it will turn out how I think it will. Best of luck everyone.

This is my WIP for this cotm, my design will be a knight crossing through the portal. The left side of the canvas is the traditional side and he will be stepping into the modern digital world. I hope it turns out how I want it to in the end and I'm super excited. I'm gonna enter the beginner category because I'm new to digital art and I'm only 12 years old. GOOD LUCK ALL!

Hey guys, hoping to enter this time as my first COTM and i'm so excited! I was wondering does anyone know what classes as 'beginner'? I dont want to enter the wrong category by accident (I can post a recent sketch I did if that helps). Hope everyone's thinking up cool ideas :)

I drew a blonde girl in a old fashionable ed portrait, as this a past method of drawing.
And then, I drew a brown haired girl who is using a drawing tablet to draw instead of a canvas.
They contrast if how different they are and how much things have improved since then.

This is one of my wip for the contest so far.

I decided to do a portrait half digital and half traditional, split down the middle. The background also being half digital and half traditional, but inverted. So, it'll be traditional and digital on both sides.

I... have never done anything for any of Jazza's challenges yet... but I've been eyeing them for a few months to try.

So, here's a sketch for it. No idea what I'm gonna do with it exactly. I'm thinking maybe try for lineless. And gonna try and get digital to work for this... it's what I'm better with. XD

Hi, I've just come up with a concept for my piece and it's supposed to be a piece of digital art swapping places with a piece of traditional art who is drawing the digital art, I'll use this as some WIP evidence

This is what I have so far for the thing, my idea is an epic showdown between the two mediums. I'm not sure how this works, as such I'm not sure which category I should be in.
