Hi watchers! Is this thing on?
Once again I haven't spent much time updating or hanging on dA, but I'd like to let you all know of a brilliant new monthly challenge that I and a friend started recently, called The Crimson Crucible.
We are really happy to have Alex Negrea
come and be a guest judge and give critiques to the challenge winner and standouts! It could be you getting a personal crit from Alex.
For Crimson Crucible 1, you will have to design or redesign a Game of Thrones character or environment from one of the main houses of Westeros, and do an illustration of it.

If you guys have heard of the Bloodsports
challenges that Dave Rapoza and Dan Warren held for a while on the daggers forum, this is the re-imagining of those days on the Crimson Daggers forum. If you haven't heard of it man you missed out...but you can get involved in something that works to those same ideals!
I don't want to write too much more here, but please go to the blog to get all the info. crimsoncrucible.wordpress.com/…
You can watch the intro stream for challenge 1 here:
Apologies the intro sound is very low, our discussion is loud enough though.
The focus of the challenge is really about hardcore self-development through the course of the challenge, and the community is incredibly supportive.
I hope to see you there!
