I'm Martina Stipan from Croatia and 4 years ago, 16-year-old me started this challenge not knowing when it will be finished. But I was sure of one thing, I was going to finish it, no matter what.


Show Full Text

I started it because I needed to push myself to make more great artworks. And this was just the perfect way to do it. It's bitter-sweet feeling finishing this because that means I have finally imagined and created 100 artworks, but then again, I have done them all.

So, something about the last one - Farewell. I wanted to finish in a similar tone to how it started. Artwork #1 Abandoned was published on July 12, 2014, and it's still one of my favorites. Farewell is really personal and that's why this is really important to me.

I always wanted to work in the creative field so I could share my perspective of the world. All of these artworks are done in Adobe Photoshop and with help of tablet Wacom Intuos Pro.

And how many times did I fail during these 4 years? Many times. I just counted 27 unpublished artworks that I felt weren't good enough. And failure is your best friend because you learn that you can get back up, create and do more.

Also, take a look at the whole 100 theme challenge gallery of all digital artworks on my Facebook page

Which artworks are your favorites? Stay creative and keep dreaming wide awake!

This is how a child feels when a mother passes on and the father looks for another wife and forgets he ever had a child... Speaking from experience.

I just found out today that my dog has terminal cancer and has to leave me soon. This is beautiful.

I am a fan of anything galaxy themed - phone wallpaper? Check. Planner? Check. Naturally, I love this one. Your artwork is amazing. I've always wanted to draw digitally, but don't have the equipment to do so.

I love the way you intertwine space, metro (urban), and mountainous environment in a single frame.

I LIVE FOR THE LANTERNS. (except when the lanterns land in the forests after the lantern festivals and all the news channels start reporting wildfires.)

The most painting-like photoshop of them all :) But don't get me wrong, every one of them is worth a soul

I'm getting an Imagine Dragons vibe. (Yes, it could be the dragons. But it makes me think of the album cover for Next To Me and Walking the Wire)
