DeviantART Hero Challenge

What's a hero? A hero is inspiring. A hero dares to do something outside the norm. But a hero can also be an everyday person, just like you and me. 

For this event, the SketchBook Team has decided a 'hero' is anyone using SketchBook professionally. That could be someone known in the industry, or someone who is just starting out.

Each month, the selected SketchBook hero will challenge you with a drawing prompt. Download the provided prompt, and rise to the challenge by drawing your ideas on the prompt. 



You have the whole month to think about the best way to illustrate the prompt. Just be sure to submit it by the last day!  

At the end of the month, the hero will check in on your progress. They'll look over all the entries, and select a few that stand out. The hero will explain in a blog post why they feel these entries met the challenge perfectly.

This event is taking place over on our official deviantART.com group. Sign up today, join our group,  and join in the fun. The first challenge launches July 1st.

Sneak Peek: Perspective Tool Tutorial

We've just uploaded another video focused on the powerful Perspective Guides in the all-new SketchBook Pro. 

Scott Robertson made an excellent video covering the technical aspects of the tool a few weeks back, so make sure to check that out as well, if you haven't already. 

In this video, I take you through my process of building a cityscape sketch in 3-point Perspective, from start to finish. 

This tool makes sketching environments and backgrounds so much more fun. 

Of course, the Perspective Tool isn't the only awesome addition in the upcoming release of SketchBook Pro, so keep an eye out for more content from the team as we edge closer and closer to the big day.

We're excited to get these tools out there!
