It’s fall y’all! We just can’t wait to get our pumpkin spice latte on 😉🎃☕️

In celebration of our favorite season, the prompt this month is FALL. ORANGE you glad??

Try to SPICE things up and come up with something new for your portfolio. This is a great one for experimenting with different media and techniques! As always, top marks go to illustrations with strong storytelling AND technical ability.

OK team, we be-LEAF in you!


  • Draw something GOURD-geous.

  • Post your final illustration on the SVS Forum, in the thread titled SEPTEMBER COMPETITION TOPIC: FALL. Be sure to keep this thread for final images only. If you want feedback on a WIP (work in progress), create a new thread. It gets too confusing if it's all shown in one thread. Note: You will need to login into a Forum user account in order to post.

  • Keep the file size no more than 1200 pixels on the longest side.

  • Don’t forget to include your name AND SVS name ON THE IMAGE so we can give you credit! And if you want us to tag you, include your handle too. This saves us a lot of time in the end when we are trying to give credit. It also allows others to quickly see who did the work later if they grab your image for reference, etc.

  • Also, only submit if you are OK with us posting your image on social media.

  • Limit it to one entry per person.

  • Post by September 30 at the stroke of midnight!
