After the successful DrawSomething 2012 free drawing and design contest, which attracted over 100 entries and garnered thousands of votes, we are excited to present the return of DrawSomething in a new edition called “DrawSomething – Emotions.”

Contest Format

In this competition, every week we will announce a theme related to a specific emotional state. Contestants will showcase their artwork that best represents the given theme.

Week 1 Theme: “Enthusiastic”

The first week of the contest introduced the theme “Enthusiastic,” and we received some outstanding submissions. All three entries showed a dedication and investment from the creators, resulting in aesthetically pleasing artworks. The main focus now is evaluating how well these artworks express the “excited” emotion they aim to portray.

Examiner’s Evaluation

The examiners assessed the submissions and provided their feedback. Let’s take a look at their evaluations:

The facial expressions, hand movements, and effects in the first artwork clearly depict the intense emotion of “Enthusiasm.” The poster-style drawing successfully enhances the idea, although some proportions need improvement.

The second artwork, showcasing a Chibi-style drawing, is both cute and inspiring. It effectively conveys a story in a single image. However, due to the early stages of development, the viewers mainly perceive a mischievous character and a sense of “excitement” rather than genuine emotion. We look forward to seeing more works from this artist.

The third drawing demonstrates a semi-realistic and shorthand style. Although the technical polish could be improved, it manages to capture depth. This artwork reminds us of the character “Old Hac” experiencing unexpected joy. The focus is on elements that attract the viewer’s attention, aiming to express surprise and delight. However, the artwork lacks condensed impact and a climactic moment.
