The Concepts Drawing Challenge

Running from 18 December-8 January 2022, the latest Concepts Drawing Challenge invited you to draw a portrait of someone who inspires you. 

It could have been a creator, influencer, best friend, or anyone who has made a difference in your life. How have they helped you? Maybe you tried a two-toned sketch, were creative with dimensions, colours or fills, or take a Picasso-styled approach... whatever sparked your creative energy.

Take a look below to see the winners!
