Time to Enter the Character Design Challenge!

Calling All Escape Studios Character Designers - the monthly Character Design Challenge competition is now open.

The CDC is a bit like the Eleven Second Club, but for the art and craft of character design. The competition was launched in 2015 and already has over 25,000 thousand members. Entering the CDC is a chance to raise your game and get your work noticed.

This month's design challenge is Alice in Wonderland.

CDC: Born in Dublin
What is the Character Design Challenge?
The Character Design Challenge is a community open to any artists who want to create and share their own unique design of a chosen theme every month. The CD Challenge was created by a group of artists living in Dublin, Ireland, in January 2015.

Alice in Wonderland
How does it work?
Every month the Character Design Challenge present a new challenge where artists can submit their unique interpretation of a chosen theme. You can check out the rules here.

How many artworks can you submit?
One single artwork (a single pose of a character in any medium. A sketch is fine).

How is the winner chosen?
Three winners are chosen by the CD Challenge judges every month and their works are shared on their Facebook and Pinterest pages. This means that they reach a potential audience of half a million artists.

Is the CD Challenge on Facebook?
Yes! - You can find them on Facebook here. 

What is this month's design challenge?
The current design challenge is: Alice in Wonderland.

What is the deadline?
Open submissions will be from February 7th, 2018 until the deadline of March 2nd 2018 at 11:59pm (GMT + 0:00) Dublin Time
