The strongest steel is forged in the hottest fire.
– Chinese proverb –
The Crimson Crucible is a monthly challenge hosted and run on the Crimson Daggers forum. Artists of all ages and abilities come together to train their skills in the transformative fire of the crucible challenges.
Challenges are focused on developing one portfolio-ready piece a month while working on a brief, under a strict deadline, similar to what might be asked of you as a professional in the entertainment industry. You will generally have 3 weeks to do your work, and a week to implement feedback and crits before the next challenge begins.
We invite you to join us in a live critique stream at the end of each challenge for you to get live feedback on your work! We invite other pro artist judges to help us from time to time. Some of our previous esteemed judges:
Alex Negrea, Atey Ghailan, James Zapata, Dan Warren, John Silva and more to come.
We challenge you to find another monthly challenge that offers the high level of individual feedback and critique on work done to ALL participants.
In order to participate you need to be initiated as a Dagger! Create an account and introduce yourself. You can use the forum link [insert link]
We would also like to acknowledge Dave Rapoza and Dan Warren for their generous work in setting up the Crimson Daggers forum and running the Bloodsports challenges from which we have drawn much of the format and inspiration of the Crucible. They have given us their blessings to stoke some new fire into the Daggers community.
