I found a great little websight called Illustration Friday:
Every Friday a new random topic is posted and artist, illustrators and anyone who wishes can submit there own artistic interpretation. You have seven days to submit your art then a new topic is posted. It's very cool to scroll through the submissions that people have posted and see the countless unique interpretations of the weeks topic. There are as many aproaches to a given idea as there are people.
This weeks topic is "Under the Sea". Here is my illustration submission, it's a scanned pencil drawing painted in a program called Painter. This is Neptune in his underwater sea throne.
