Hey guys! I don't know if anyone remembers, but last year I made a drawing contest, and it went really well, so I was thinking of doing it again.  

VERY IMPORTANT!: You do not have to be *good* at drawing, or have to use a particular style. Everything is welcome, including doodles and stetches. One of the coolest things about this is getting to see all different art peices.

So, how it works:

I'll PM* everyone a DIFFERENT emotion (sadness, joy, surprise, etc.) then you have to draw what makes you think of that emotion. 


If anyone is interested/curious here is the link to last years contest: 




Deadline: July 30th 2019



All entries just be tagged "Emotion; A drawing Contest (year two)" 

ONE entry per person

Please include what your emotion was in the title of your entry when you post it

Leave a link in the comments to you entry

Obviously keep everything NMG appropriate

All entrys must be submitted by July 30th August 4th

Up to 15 people can enter 

Don't tell anyone what your emotion is (people will find out when you post your entry with a title of your emotion) 


I will be judging based on: 

How much emotion shows

Creativety and uniqueness


I will chose a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place.

  • First off, I'd like to say that everyone's entries were all amazing and creative. I loved them all, and had a really hard time choosing, so even though I wasn’t planning to, I decided to have three runner-ups also. Thank you all so much for joining, I had a lot of fun with this. :)

    *very loud dramatic drum rolling*

    *clears throat*

    Eli, and their drawing of calmness. (http://www.nmgmembers.com/drawing-painting/image-660?context=contri... )
    I really love the peaceful vibe your drawing gives off. <3 Her expression is so calm, and I love all the sayings you chose for around her.

    Sophia(sparkle), and her drawing of fear. (http://www.nmgmembers.com/drawing-painting/untitled-artwork-71 )
    I love how you drew the ghosts, they really add to the drawing and showing the emotion. Also her expression is perfect, and I really love the background you did.

    Tori, and her drawing of sadness. (http://www.nmgmembers.com/drawing-painting/d1f8fefb-6017-4071-b968-... )
    Your drawing really expresses sadness.I love what you chose to represent your emotion. The colors and smoke are sad, and make the drawing beautiful in a way.

    Grace(fruit), and her drawing of sympathy. (http://www.nmgmembers.com/drawing-painting/b0b14c7d-33b3-4833-b3b2-... )
    I love what you chose to represent sympathy. The two people sitting together and holding each other is perfect. I also really love your background, and all the beautiful colors.

    Anwen, and her drawing of awkwardness. (http://www.nmgmembers.com/drawing-painting/3d09dde9-600c-45d2-8a98-... )
    First off, I love the way you wrote around the people, making the background darker, and adding a really cool feel to the drawing. The way you drew everyone, is perfect for the emotion.

    Freida, and her drawing of love. (http://www.nmgmembers.com/drawing-painting/for-amelias-contest?cont... )
    You’re drawing is so sweet. Your dog's expression is adorable, and the way you’re both cuddling shows how much you love her. The gentle background and words above really add a perfect touch.

    And there you have it!! Congrats to everyone, and thank you all again for participating!

Staying Committed to a Story

I find it really hard to keep motivated while writing. I often am really excited about a story I start writing, but after a couple paragraphs I lose motivation and never continue the story.
