Our community has grown to more than 3000+ artists in Japan alone, and we have hosted 3 world championships with over 500 competing artists.

A One-on-One Creative Showdown!

LIMITS Battle is a head to head competition between two artists, putting their creative talents under pressure to see who will come out on top. A theme is selected at random and competitors must draw, paint and create their way to victory by creating an original piece in a limited amount of time. Anyone can compete regardless of age, gender or location.

Rules of Battle:
Theme: Two themes are selected at random and then combined to make an original theme for each battle.

Time Limit: 20 minutes.

Judging: Scored by judges and fans in real time under 3 different criteria: Idea, Speed and Technique.

The battles have brought together artists of all ages, genders and nationalities to test their limits, sparking collaboration and connection in a thriving community that continues to grow.
