30 Day Creative Challenge: Recap

For the month of June I completed the 30 Day Creative Challenge, where I created something each day for 30 days, based on a daily prompt. It was also part of my 30 Before 30.

I have finally completed the 30 Day Creative Challenge, and I present the results to you in this post (it is image heavy). There were some days that I had to catch up on, mainly because of a few events that were difficult. 1. My dear Kangaroo friend Denise died in early June and that was very sad and a shock. 2. I had a tooth that was causing me a lot of trouble, and eventually had to be taken out, where they found it had an infection around it. My mouth is healed, but it takes longer to heal from loss, but I am getting there.

So now, lets look at the creative results.

Day 1: How you see yourself
how-I-see-myself

Day 2: Love
love
This was completed after Denise had died, and was to signify the bond between ‘man and beast’. Reaching out for a friend, they you can no longer touch and also because Denise was a wild Kangaroo, that I could never touch, or show my affection as you would a domesticated pet.

Day 20: Life
In a small little forest,
far from humans have been,
lives a family of owls
content and pristine.

Mother and Father sit on a branch,
watching their little ones,
flutter and dance.

Soon they will grow
take flight and explore
see all of the world
up, up, they will sore.

As day starts to break
they huddle together,
beaks nestled in close
under cover of feathers.

Favourite Day: Day 22: Symmetrical
Least favourite day: Day 11: Social
Thoughts: I am glad that I was able to cover a number of different interests, such as digital art, craft, writing, photography. I do wish that I had of used more varied styles of digital art, and tended to stick with the ‘doodle style’ that I was exploring at the time. If I do the challenge again, I hope it can be more diverse.

  • Congratulations on achieving this challenge! You did a great job with them! Ironically, I actually liked “Social” the most. I also like “Passion”, too, and I love the “Character” one for the fact it features Draco Malfoy XD

    I am also very fond of your doodling style. I find them very whimsical and cute!

    I’m sorry for the loss of your kangaroo friend :( Animals have souls, too, and they can become our friend and family, too.

    • Kya

      Thank you so much! :’)

  • These are all wonderful! Congrats, too, on finishing the challenge! I really like your style – they are all so cute. My favorites are the Character, Fantasy, and Perfection! All those little cupcakes are definitely perfection!

    • Kya

      Thank you! :D

  • Wow, you created so much wonderful works. I am sorry about Denise and I absolutely loved your Day 2 post knowing the story made it even better. And you made Death beautiful, Passion so much fun and my personal favorite has to be Past. Such an inspiring and true quote. Great work!!

    • Kya

      Thank you so much! :D

  • Oh wow, these are all amazing! You’re so multi-talented it’s insane! :D I absolutely love the death skull, and the friendship owls. And, well, all of them!

    It’s impressive that you finished the challenge too. I’d love to do this myself, but I know I would start out super ambitious, lose steam, and give up after like 4 days :P

    • Kya

      Aww, thank you so much. That means a lot coming from you, because I really admire your creations. <3

  • |) Can I just say that I love your art style! You should post more of your art. :3

    And a huge congratulations for finishing the challenge! (which is frankly, an achievement because 30 days… Wow.)

    Will be scrolling up to view all your works once again.

    • Kya

      Thank you! :D

  • I’m sorry to hear about Denise’s passing :(. I wish for the best. It takes steps to heal from loss, hang on in there :).

    All of your work are so cute! You have so much talent with art and it’s so cool that you have a variety of artistic range! The cat looks so cute and fierce!! I would love to have a cat that looks mean and cool ;)… And fluffy too ;). Combining that with creativity, this awesome work is produced! Congratulatons!

    • Kya

      Thank you! :)

    Congrats on completing this challenge! I enjoyed keeping up with it on Deviantart :) I like that you used a variety of mediums instead of sticking to one. Your style is very cute!

    I’m sorry to hear about Denise though :( It’s always hard when a friend passes away. I love that you dedicated day 2 to her!

    • Kya

      Thank you! <3

  • I loved seeing these each day on twitter. I love your doodling style with my favourites being in that style! Although I also like the Breakfast Club one too :)

      Don’t you, forget about me. xD

  • There is just so much awesomeness in this post <3

    • Kya

      Thank yeee. :D

  • This is amazing! I’m so impressed.

    • Kya

      Aww, thank you!

  • I am loving all of these! For your illustrations, do you use a tablet to draw them or do you draw and then scan them? I’ve been doodling on paper a lot lately, but I’m thinking of investing in a tablet to be able to do them on the computer.

      I just use my computer and mouse. Sometimes I do sketch on paper, snap a photo and then create it from that. But mainly just with the mouse. :D

  • Congrats on finishing your creative challenge! I love so much of it, because it’s so kawaii and in your style!

    • Kya

      Thank you! :D

  • You’re so creative, funny thing to say now but seriously! Also, that last design “the future will be pearable” is too adorable

      It took me a while to decide on the future one, then I had that idea and thought it would be funny. xD

  • Congrats on completing this creative challenge! :D You did a great job sticking to it! I like Friendship, Social, and Book the best!

    I’m sorry about Denise though. :(

    • Kya

      Thank you. :)

  • They are all really creative and cool!! Like I said on dA, I like that you used different mediums to create some wonderful inspired art! :D

    • Kya

      Thanks. :D

  • I love all your pictures! Some of them, I thought, were very deep but conveyed the meaning in a very cute and easily understandable way. Also, kudos to you because it’s pretty awesome you managed to finish every day.

    • Kya

      Thank you!
