I was a little disappointed by the themes in the original "100 Art Challenge" so I set out to make something more to my liking. It was just placed haphazardly in a journal, but this is much easier to find, for both me and other people. Feel free to use this however you like without permission. Enjoy!

:heart: Sparkles

Well hey, that's the point! This list is kind of like lamposts on a path to aim towards, but the journey, how long it takes you, and what you do along the way is completely up to you. I would hope so, anyway. I don't think people would take on these themes if it made artwork miserable. ;P

What I really like about your list is that there isn't much romance, yet there's still plently of deepness.
Crazy-Sparkles Featured By Owner Jan 8, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Well thanks so much! :aww: I'm glad that even after all these years people are still finding it useful and unique from other "100 Art Challenges"! :nod: I didn't realize it at the time, but I guess I was going for a more "deep" set of themes, as you've said. There are some romantic themes of course, arguably some that would make people uncomfortable like "Lust", but it wouldn't be a "challenge" if it was redundant. The whole point of a challenge is to push you beyond your comfort zone. Great point!

Some challenges have things like "Apple" or "Butterfly" and though those might hold deep meanings to some people, they're really too specific to pertain to everyone on that kind of level. That makes it hard for certain people to connect and therefore "dive in" and completely express themselves, and that's the basis of all art, isn't it? :) Something like "Apple", I feel, is really rather confining from an artistic standpoint, and that's no fun! :noes:

Thanks so much for the comment! :w00t: I apologize for the tiny ramble I went on there! ^^;
