Have a great week!

It was heavily inspired by websites like Etsy and Gumroad where a lot of artists are selling products they create and making a living doing so. Our marketplace will feature content specially for artists such as tutorials, brushes, textures, 3D models and much more. It will be amazing if I may say so myself
We are a few weeks away from our initial release and I wanted to let you know what URL to use to reach the new site!
You may be familiar with cubebrush.com which is our current site and will remain live for now. The new website address that we call for now cubebrush 2.0 will be cubebrush.co until we decide to merge the two.
Here it is for now, make sure you subscribe to be notified the second we go live! We're trying our best to build an incredible platform for the art community so any help sharing this would be awesome!

Hey peeps! It's a new month and it marks the start of a new art competition over at cubebrush.com!
Come over and compare your skills with a growing art family and get a chance to win some cool stuff!
Welcome to CUBEBRUSH’s October competition for both 2D and 3D artists!
For this month, a panel of industry pros will be judging the entries to determine the champions in each league.
With that said, let’s get to it!
Create a character in either the 2D or 3D category(for 3D, a textured sculpt is more than enough, no need to be game engine friendly, can be touched-up in Photoshop) using the following guide-lines:
- Create a zombie lord character, proud ruler of all zombies!
- Any genre!
- Can be humanoid, beast, ethereal, anything goes!
- Full body (can’t be just a bust)
- Can be Lord or Lady
As you can see this opens up for a wide variety of characters, you have a full month so make it awesome!
You will be judged on:
- Technical skills (anatomy, pose, colors, composition, perspective , etc)
- Design (does it look interesting?)
- Creativity (how well you deal with the guidelines)
- Overall appeal (wow factor)
Winning entries for 2D and 3D in all 3 leagues will be featured and critiqued in a special YouTube video. More prizes coming up in the following months!
This time around you will also get one of these ! This is a monthly winner’s badge that will go on your profile if you win. This way everybody will know you are a badass. We are introducing badges in beta 2 and it should be rolling out sometimes soon!
The deadline is October 25th at 11h59 PST
Notes – Please make sure you read the rules for the monthly competitions, each entry should have its own thread named accordingly with some progress shots included.
Let the competition begin!
If you feel like you could do better, then join us for October! OhohoHHhh
In case you missed it, here is a tutorial on how to draw feet:
You have until the 30th to cast your votes if you feel like checking out the community!
Members enter in one of 3 different leagues, based on their skill level and compete in there as if it were a completely separate forum. Once they feel like they've improved enough, they are free to level up one league and go against a new batch of artists.
Some stunning work in there, speechless!
...and bonus, here is the trailer for our latest Master Lesson, you get access to it as well as the rest of the library as a Pro member, cheap cheap!
