Illustration Friday is a weekly drawing challenge brought to you by Illustration Age. Every Friday a new topic is posted and you have one week to come up with your own unique interpretation and share it on our home page!

Here’s how:

Step 1: Illustrate your interpretation of the current week’s topic (always viewable on the homepage).

Step 2: Post your image onto your blog / flickr / facebook, etc.

Step 3: Come back to Illustration Friday and submit your illustration (see big “Submit your illustration” button on the homepage).

Step 4: Your link will then be added to the participant list and you can check out your artwork along with everyone else’s from the IF community!

Easy peasy!

The new uploader can auto-generate your image submission for you, or you can upload it manually yourself. An image at least 190 pixels wide will work best.

To start, go to the home page and hit “Submit your Illustration.” Fill out the form. Where it says: “Enter the link to your illustration, or your website” copy and paste your whole URL there — after you’ve clicked on the title or time stamp of the post where your illustration lives. That’s what you should copy and paste into the form box. That creates a static link that will help auto-generate the thumbnail.

After entering your URL, choose a Medium and Style and while you do that, the automatic generator will start working on your thumbnail. Then simply scroll through the arrows to choose the image you want to use.

Or you can select “Choose File” and upload an image from your desktop. Your choice.

Finally, enter the Captcha words and hit “Submit your Illustration”.

The Illustration Friday community is a supportive, friendly place to view artwork and meet other illustrators, doodlers and creative people online. We have participants from all countries, backgrounds and age groups. We ask that your illustration submissions be mindful of this. Please post nothing that you wouldn’t want your mother to see. That said, Illustration Friday assumes no responsibility for imagery that is linked to.
