sketch drawing contest

This week, we’re celebrating the unrefined beauty of a work in progress. We all know how beautiful a finished work of art can be, but for this Drawing Challenge, we want your drawings to be a little more raw.

This week, we’re focusing on style, not subject—and that means that you can draw whatever you want! This will allow you to focus on the form, composition, and techniques that go into your entry.

Follow along with our step-by-step tutorial to pick up the technique, and then give it a shot on your own. Share your creation with the hashtag #dcSketch to enter the Contest. 

How to Enter the Contest

Submit a maximum of two drawings between Friday and Tuesday, September 22nd at midnight PDT.

Submit a drawing by tagging it with #dcSketch or by entering it in the Contests section. Non-original art will be removed. Your drawing must be drawn with the PicsArt app, and it must be your own work.

How to Vote

Vote for your favorite drawings in the Contests section. All entries will be displayed randomly. Voting begins Wednesday, September 23rd and closes Monday, September 28th.

Contest Winners

The 10 drawings with the most votes win. Our jury will also choose one entry outside of the top 10 to be featured.
