Creating Original Characters with the Scrawlr Box Challenge

Hey! I tried out the Scrawlr Box challenge and it was a great experience. Check out my video (I filmed this in small snippets and wips):

What is the Scrawlr Box challenge, exactly, you might ask? Well, it’s a subscription box that gives you a small set of art supplies and some nice paper too, and a specific theme to create a whole art piece with! No cheating by using other supplies 😉

In this box, there were the following supplies: (click on them if you’d like to get them too!)

Zig Clean Colour Brush Pens (a skin tint, pink and blue)

Pentel Hybrid Gel Grip Pastel Pen (White)

Zig Mangaka Drawing Pen (Violet)

180gsm White Acid Free Paper (2 sheets provided)

Uni Kuru toga Mechanical Pencil 0.5mm Black

The theme was ‘Sweet Sundae’. So I decided to create themes based on that- along with the color combination provided via the supplies in the box.

Here’s my first piece, called ‘Dreams demand hustle’:

The verdict: I really enjoyed working on the challenge because not only did it force me to work with unconventional color schemes, it also got me motivated to draw characters again! Thanks to Scrawlr Box, I’m drawing more nowadays. If you’re currently unsure of where you’re heading in your creative journey, I highly recommend you check this out and work honestly on the challenge of the month. It’ll give you a new creative perspective. -Aaria
