    So! I've been lurking around here looking at everyone's nice art for a while (y'all are awesome artists btw), and found this 30-day art challenge thing here. I'm always up for more motivation for drawing daily (coughlikeIprobablyshouldbedoingcoughcough), so I decided to take a shot at this for the month of April. Whether I finish this in 30 days or 3 months remains to be seen, but I'm hoping I won't miss a day (even though I'm busy with a family thing tomorrow, whoops). Anyways, onward!

    Day 1: Starter dragon
    IMG_4292[2].JPG
    Awww yea, Plessie starter! I evolved mine to B/G and managed to max-skill it through feeding enough chimeras, although it's currently a box cheerleader. I'm surprised by how clean the lines turned out; usually it's a sketchy mess that's cleaned up like five times.

    I know I'm a bit late, but hey, better late than never. XD Let's go!

    Day 2: First REM Roll
    IMG_4311.JPG
    I didn't know about rerolling when I started the game, so Thumbelina was my first roll. My first team was a rainbow team led by Plessie/Plesiel/Plesios, and Thumbelina was the green coverage for that team. Nowadays, she's either used as a sub or an assist for her bind clear. This is also day 1 of ?? for "how many times do I have to clean the drawing before it looks presentable".

    The forums were down after I had finished yesterday's drawing, so I'll put both days here.

    Day 3: First REM God
    IMG_4319[1].JPG
    I didn't know about godfests when I first started, so I rolled almost every time I had five stones. Somehow, I rolled into Vishnu after lots and lots and lots of not-so-good rolls. At first, I only really used him for my chibi dqxq weekend dungeon team. After a while, I eventually built an ABastet team, and this guy was a staple sub there. Nowadays, he gets a spot on almost every green team I ever build, and I lead with him to farm Sea of Stars. For all of that use, though...

    Day 4: First +297
    IMG_4364[1].JPG
    My first +297 went into the lead that started me in descends: LKali. I took some liberties in giving her an outfit, because her regular lack of clothing makes it hard to keep her sfw. She was my lead for descends until I got ABastet going, so she was fully plussed first. She's not great as a lead nowadays, but I still whip her out every once in a while to do an easier descend. She also farms Zeus & Hera pretty well (with the help of Anubis's counter).

    Thanks! :D I have some good news for today, then.

    Day 5: Favorite Attacker Type
    IMG_4370[1].JPG
    Yup, I'm predictable. I have a lot of attackers types in my box that I like, but in the end I decided to go with Vishnu. His uuvo art saddens me in that he loses all of his stuff and his nose; how is he supposed to whack anything in the head without a club? Also, I draw him with a smile so much that I forget his art is pretty serious in PAD. Whoops.

    Sometimes, I wonder if I should start drawing a bit earlier. Oh well, here I am.

    Day 6: Favorite Balanced Type
    verdandi.JPG Whee, Verdandi! My go-to farming lead for biweeklies and some descends. I was really excited when she won that tournament buff, but I don't think I'll be using the cross component of her leader skill unless I'm pairing with Acala. Flat 3.5x buff, woo. Although, as much as I like her, I really don't need five of her in my box.

    Well, let's get to it.

    Day 7: Favorite Physical Type
    asusano.JPG Representing my general confusion on how to draw muscles and body parts, ASusano. My first hypermax, a generally-good shield who fits into most of my fragile teams but Gungho where is his SBR. There's not a whole lot of physical types that I like, and most of those aren't cards I would think of when I see "physical type". His revo art throws me off for some reason; maybe it's his expression?

    Hoo boy, daily life struck into my drawing plans. The forums were down again after I had finished day 8's drawing. I didn't get to finish day 9's drawing on time, so I figured that I'd only be one day late. Then I unexpectedly fainted twice on Monday and couldn't do any drawing until today. That was fun. I guess being two days late isn't terrible, though.

    Day 8: Favorite Healer Type
    DQXQ.JPG
    DQXQ! The sisters who carried me through normals and technicals and my first few descends. I intend to keep them in my slot 1 forever, and they'll always have a place in my heart (even though their revo could be a bit better).

    Day 9: Favorite Dragon Type
    hinomitsuha.JPG
    Hoo boy, dragons. Half the reason I started playing this game in the first place. There's like seven dragon cards that I consider to be my favorites. I asked a friend which dragon I should draw and they picked Hinomitsuha, so here we are. I like her art, and she's been a great sub for RaDra and revo Anubis.

    Thanks! :D Funny enough, the forums were down yet again when I tried to post yesterday's drawing. Huh.

    Day 10: Favorite Devil Type
    revo bastet.JPG
    Like as if this were a contest. Okay, maybe I debated drawing Krishna for a moment, but I really like Bastet. She was the lead I used to plow through most descends, and I saved my first arena clear for her, just because. I like all the cats in her revo art, but I didn't want to draw all...eight or so of them? I can't tell.

    Day 11: Favorite Machine Type
    pollux.JPG
    I think Constellation 1 is a cute pantheon, and I like Pollux the most. I don't dislike any of their art, and their seasonal versions are super cute. I feel a little weird that I drew Pollux's outfit nearly unchanged yet gave LKali a new one, but at least I can pretend Pollux's outfit is some sort of swimsuit. Y'know, a swimsuit that only covers her front side. Plausible.

    Hm, I could've sworn I already uploaded day 12's drawing. Maybe I didn't click the "post reply" button, who knows. And I started day 13's drawing really late and while I was rerolling in Crash Fever, whoops, so I took another day to finish it.

    Day 12: The best king slime
    king flamie.JPG
    I've never actually used any of the king slimes in a team. I do have a Big Flamie from the tutorial team, so I decided to draw King Flamie to round out the collection. They can actually drop from Zeus & Hera's descend; I was surprised when one dropped while I was farming it.

    Day 13: Favorite Normal/Technical dungeon boss
    defoud.JPG
    Honestly, I farmed Defoud's dungeon for Strawberry Dragon and Blodin skillups, but I max-skilled one cuz I like their art. What saddens me about this game is that half the normal/technical bosses that drop are near-useless. At least Defoud can act as a light maker that can also clear jammers. Had to scale this one down quite a bit, as apparently my phone takes pictures that are too big to upload.

    I thought this would be a quick drawing, but then I couldn't decide between two cards. So I drew them both.

    Day 14: Favorite Descend Bosses
    izanami and medjedra.JPG
    Medjedra tends to pop up on my notes in random places, so I assume that means I like them a lot. At first, I only wanted to draw Medjedra, but I remembered Izanami and figured "well, why not both?" I've used DIza much more than Medjedra on my teams, but I like her regular evo art more than her uevo art.

    I'm aliiiiiiiiiiiiiiiive! Homework load picked up a bit, along with a lack of motivation to draw and playing CF on the side. Also I tried drawing the prompt three or four times, but kept erasing them because the pose didn't really feel right. :/

    Day 15: Favorite (ex-)Biweekly Dragon
    yamato takeru dragon.JPG
    I really like Yamato Takeru Dragon in Tsubaki's uevo art; the wing stretching into the foreground is a nice touch. Then they became a biweekly boss and Tsubaki food, and I had to get at least one for the pretty art. They're sitting around max-skilled from the initial two-week period, but oh man do I like pretty art.

    One of my weaknesses is pretty dragon art. Half the reason I started playing PAD was for the dragons, and hoo boy was I disappointed when I found out all the cool-looking dragon bosses weren't actually useful for anything. :(

    This one's pretty small, so it was done relatively quick. Most of the uploaded pictures on this thread are at least 3x as big as the actual drawings; in reality, about 4-6 drawings fit onto one 8.5"x11" sheet of paper.

    Day 16: Favorite Skill Up Fodder
    fire shibamaru.JPG
    Back when Fire and Dark Dog Dragons first came out, I remember farming a bunch of Fire Shibamaru to skill up my newly-rolled Sanada Yukimura. I managed to get him, GZL, and Dragon Shogun max-skilled, and had a stockpile of 25 Dark Shibamaru waiting for if I ever rolled Akechi Mitsuhide. Fast-forward to about six months later, I finally rolled him during PCGF. Max-skilled right off the bat. Then I rolled another one the next day and had to farm Dark Carnival to max-skill that one. Those Shibamaru were worth it, though.
