Renderosity Magazine Weekly Art Challenge - Week 7

Apr 12, 2022 at 11:58 pm by nickcharles

Welcome to Week 7 of the Renderosity Magazine Weekly Art Challenge! The aim of this challenge is to get everyone creating, regardless of tools or methods. 

This week's theme is "Lines"

The first thing that comes to mind for me is shapes, or rather strokes. I like that, but don't let that limit you. See where the prompt "lines" leads you!

If you wish your work to be featured, contact me at, and be sure to include "Renderosity Magazine Weekly Art Challenge" in the subject line. All I ask is that for your work to be featured, it does not contain nudity, or otherwise could be deemed offensive.

Last week's challenge theme was 'Repetition.' Here are a couple submissions:

This piece was submitted by artdreamer on Renderosity.

"It is made in an old version of Fractal Explorer, with the name of fleur-herhaling (Fleur repeat)."

Be sure to check out artdreamer's Renderosity gallery, here.

This piece, "Dominoes 0-6", was submitted by APlusDesign.

"The first thing that came to mind with repetition was dominoes. A classic game with numbers and patterns; you have to place down a tile which contains the same number of dots at one end to match, hence a repetition. Repetition is also found with structures that are built from dominoes from bridges, to full line ups, towers and more. While all the tiles look very similar and repetitive, they are also all unique."

This piece was my own. I had no idea how I was going to go on the theme of repetition, until I started thinking about cycles. I started playing around in Affinity Designer with circles and arrows. Then a Steely Dan song popped in my head, and there I went... 

I hope you enjoyed this challenge and you continue to follow up weekly. Holding a weekly challenge was something I've been wanting to do for a long time, not only as a fun feature for visitors to the magazine, but for myself as well. I love seeing what others come up with when faced with a challenge, and I am one that works best with deadlines. It keeps me doing something creative each week outside of my regular work...and it's fun!

If you enjoy this weekly challenge, please spread the word. You do not need to be a member of Renderosity to participate, and you do not need to submit your work if you do not wish to. This is a work in progress and the format may change as it grows.

Thank you, and have a creative week ahead! 

The Renderosity Magazine Weekly Art Challenge appears every Wednesday, in which I provide a prompt of sorts, whether a theme, word, or idea. There are no strict guidelines, and any tools or methods are acceptable. You can use any software you wish, or use traditional means. There are no limits to where the prompt might lead you. 

Each succesive week, I will talk about the previous week's challenge, show what I came up with, as well as the work of other participants, and provide the theme/idea for the next challenge.

There are no prizes for this weekly challenge at this time. This is just to get us all doing something creative, no matter the tools or methods.
