In case you missed the first Season-

Season Two

  • Jacob Kellogg

    …Who should I draw….Main guy is probably the coolest looking.

  • Leon Evelake

    I don’t know javk about persona …this should be ….interesting

    • Jacob Kellogg

      That is what I was thinking. Drawing a character I know nothing about should be interesting.

  • Ryuuga Hideki

    Bah… I wish my artistic ability was even halfway decent to join in on this. I have a couple of ideas but there’s no way I could ever get them to look even remotely presentable. I just don’t have the time or patience to learn. :-/

    (I know, I know, it’s a “have fun, no judgements thing. I just dislike my lack of artistic ability that much.)

    • It’s ok if you don’t want too, but do know no one is really here to judge. And feel free to share your ideas if you don’t want to do them. Might help someone else!

  • TimesTicking

    Well…. do I just resubmit Morgana?

    • XD I was wondering if this question would come up

      • TimesTicking

        So… a yes? JK, I’ll probably do another character but I really don’t want to search too much since I am going in blind on the game.

        • Jacob Kellogg

          That’s why I provided art from stuff so people can avoid the spoilers!

    • Jacob Kellogg

      Don’t forget the Youdraw!

      • TimesTicking

        When is the deadline?
        Been putting way too many hours in Persona 5 since I got it XD

        • Jacob Kellogg

          I extended it to the 22nd cause so many people are actually playing the game XD

  • Hiya all!
    I figured I’d post my tryout piece, since I spent waay more time on it than usual, and I’m not sure I’ll be able to finish an actual drawing :P
    I tried to make a really stylized colouring style, since (I think) the persona 4 intro was really stylized with bright colours and all. (And that’s about the extent of my knowledge)
    (Since that’s what I was going for, and this is supposed to just be a tryout, obviously a large part of the outlines are traced from the example image)
    I’d love some opinions!
    (Also I don’t think my profile picture is showing up properly?)

    • Jacob Kellogg

      D: Holy crap that looks awesome! I really like the crazy colors!

      I really like it man!

      As for the avatar, are you signed in through the site or through disqus? They are separate so people can have a normal account for comments and one for writing articles and such.

      • Thanks a lot!
        Playing around with the colours is loads of fun!
        But I think my reds are a bit too similar, especially at the coat-shirt part :P

        As for my avatar, I’m signed in through wordpress via the site, and it is showing up properly on the top right of my screen somehow :S

        Now, time for me to go create an actual original piece! (and maybe even get it done in time) :P

        • Jacob Kellogg

          Did you just add the avatar? Sometimes it takes a while to load up thanks to server syncing.

          I opened your profile and it is there-…Just isn’t showing yet.

          • I already uploaded it at the last youdraw, so unless those are some REAALLLLLLYY slow servers I doubt that’s the problem :P
            I tried re-uploading it to see if that works a while ago, but no luck so far :S

          • Jacob Kellogg

            Hmm…..I will look into this when I wake up. It’s 4am now, so I gotta sleep. In the morning I will recreate an account, just to see if I can replicate this glitch.

          • Jacob Kellogg

            OK! I Figured out part of the problem, it seems the disqus/site integration for Avatars is not working properly. As in, it isn’t allowing users to go into settings properly. I will email them about this.

            —Here is an exert from Disqus on general avatar changing( not accounting for the glitch)-

            Updating your Avatar

            You can manually update your avatar by uploading a picture from your computer, connecting to Disqus through Facebook or Twitter, or by selecting an existing Gravatar. All of these options can be found in the Profile settings shown above.

            Image upload requirements:

            File size limit: 1 megabyte.
            Recommended dimensions: 128×128 pixels.
            Transparent avatars are not supported. We’re working on that.
            Profile Settings Avatar upload

            Gravatar image not showing up in Disqus? If you are using the same email address for both Disqus and Gravatar and your Gravatar image is still not appearing in Disqus, check to be sure that your email address in Disqus is in all lower-case letters.

          • Rhytin

            I somehow completely read around the workaround part…
            Ugh, I hate how sloppy I am at times ahahaha xD

        • Did you create an acccount on sidearc? If so you may need to go to your profile and set an avatar there.

          • I tried re-uploading it a while ago, it is showing up on my top-right corner (and my profile and all that) for me, but apparently not for others. :S

          • Hmmm, it might be something odd with the way we set up discord on our site… i’ll look into it

            Although please try making a comment on speakout to see if the problems persists


    • AmberAdoraeble

      Oh wow, it’s so cute! Wonderful!

      • Rhytin


  • Jacob Kellogg

    I really need to get on this!!!

  • Jacob Kellogg
  • This extension of the deadline might mean I’ll actually get my drawing done in time!
    I’ve got about 4/5 hours on the train to waste coming friday, so this is actually perfect :P

    • Jacob Kellogg

      :D Yaayy!!!

      I noticed a lot of the people were playing it a LOT, so it seemed necessary.

  • Hiya all!
    These are my 2 entries (even tho the first one was initially just a tryout)
    I kind of broke the wrist I draw with last saturday, so it’s not actually finished, but I’m definitely not getting it done it time :P (Ironically, this indirectly happened cause of the drawing xD)
    I’ve tried to make it look a bit more finished with the photoshop tools, but that’s it!
    It’s supposed to be a skateboard she’s standing on, but the trucks are obviously missing :P
    I tried to draw it from a low angle perspective (pretty sure I butchered the perspective, but eh practice makes perfect and all that)
    And she’s on a skateboard because the coat with the white shirt kinda reminded me of yukine’s from noragami, and one thing led to another (Also, she kinda looks like she could be a skater imho)
    I had LOADS of fun drawing this, because of the weird brightly coloured style I went for :P

    • Jacob Kellogg

      D: What happened to your wrist????You doin ok?

      Also, I really like the color…and that Perspective..I am not brave enough to try it XD….I am kinda weak when it comes to that, you seem to have a knack for it though.


        I don’t think I’m that good with perspective, it’s mostly trial and error for me. My initial sketch looked nothing like this, at all xD
        Fun perspectives can make for some really cool poses/compositions though, which why I like attempting to learn it.

        As for my wrist it’s a bit of a story, it’s fine though, I’ve broken bones before, but only having one functional arm sucks :( .

        As I said, I decided on adding a skateboard and attempting a dynamic perspective-y pose.
        So when I showed a WIP screenshot to my friend and asked for his thoughts, he went on a complete rant about how badly she was standing on top of the board. (apparently I used bad reference or something)

        Anyways, that’s how I found out he knew how to ride a skateboard properly, which is something I’ve always wanted to try, long story short, I managed to convince him to teach me how to ride a longboard. (kinda similar but less focused on tricks and more for just having fun driving around and going fast)

        So I got a second-hand longboard the very same week, he taught me for a bit. And the next weekend when I went with my little brother so I could teach him how to rollerskate (me on my board), I fell really badly since turning properly is hard, thought it was just a LOT of scrapes, so I didn’t go to the hospital until about an hour or so later.

        Turns out I have a broken wrist, and a (now bandaged) really badly scraped elbow, upper arm and thigh/side.

        • AmberAdoraeble

          Wow it’s trippy!

        • Jacob Kellogg

          Is it broken badly? Glad it was just the wrist though. Have seen some pretty bad injuries from boards before.

          and I think you do perspective pretty dang well.:)

          • Rhytin

            Nah, it’s fine, I’ve broken bones way worse before.
            Worst was when I somehow split my shin playing football/soccer, that one REALLY hurt.
            This one was cleanly broken and didn’t have to be put back into place or anything, the cast is more of an annoyance than anything! :P

          • Jacob Kellogg

            Shin…Split..AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH…NO that sounds so horrible DX

            At least this one wasnt super bad.

  • Jacob Kellogg

    This took forever…. I had wanted to do 3…I think 2 was my limit this time, I put extra time into this one cause I know a lot of you guys are really enjoying the game. Hope yall like it.

    • Jacob Kellogg

      Original pic for reference

      I love the way you went from the anime-styled drawing to something realistic, while the textured brush still makes it give off that stylish feeling :D
      Meanwhile I can’t render anything to save my life, let alone take a piece and make it my own like that xD

      • Jacob Kellogg

        I think I can only imitate likeness of people….When it comes to creative colors or style I fail miserably.

    • AmberAdoraeble

      I love this so much, I can’t wait until I have talent like yours!

      • Jacob Kellogg

        Thank you! :)

  • AmberAdoraeble

    I’m not too thrilled with how my photo turned out; I has a limited set of colors, but I did my best with what I had.

  • AmberAdoraeble
    • Jacob Kellogg

      It is crazy how you do that with actual pens…I could never do that T_T…Coloring I can bascially just use digital and do painted acrylic forestry..

    • Rhytin

      Physical drawings really have some kind of special charm to them…
      Someday I’ll go back to drawing in my actual sketchbook, and completely suck cause you can’t do it over nearly as easily as digital! :P

  • AmberAdoraeble
    • Jacob Kellogg

      It is super smooth :D Great job!

      • AmberAdoraeble

        Thank you!

    • Rhytin

      I really like these kind of looks!!
      Unfortunately, it seems outlines are one of my worst enemies when it comes to art.
      So this’d be impossible for me! :P
      (Even if I were to cheat and do it digitally)

      • AmberAdoraeble

        Thank you! Digital coloring seem super tough to me!

        • Rhytin

          I don’t neccesarily think it’s hard, just takes while before you find what suits you I guess?
          I am definitely still in the searching stage as far as that goes xD

          The colouring I did for the youdraw was basicly just creating a bunch of spaces based on shadow and form, and filling those up with different colours :P (Then again, picking my colours took a while, since I tried that weird style and all)

          Actual rendering (like @sidearc-c81e728d9d4c2f636f067f89cc14862c:disqus does) is still impossible for me! :P
          When I try, it usually just ends up looking like a bunch of strokes with slightly differing colours, rather than it being like it’s supposed to be xD

  • Rhytin

    Just saying, but anyone posting after this point would’ve been too late in europe!! :PP

    • Jacob Kellogg

      XD Yeah, I take the submissions till the last minute, half the users here procrastinate like crazy!

  • Leon Evelake
    • Rhytin

      This only took 10 minutes?!
      Ugh, mine probably wouldn’t look that much alike even if I spend an hour on it or something xD
      (Also for some reason the reference picture you added makes me think of ace attorney :P)
