21 Day Challenge: Day 17 "Real vs. Iconic Eye"

Like yesterday's challenge, this one demonstrates realism vs. a more graphic, "logo-like" representation.

21 Day Challenge: Day 16 "Drawing Design"

A busy week it has been!  But I'm back and playing a little catch-up.  Today's challenge is to simplify the form and details of an owl and to create a more iconic version of it.  No gradation, just shapes!

21 Day Challenge: Day 15 "Boxing Dinosaurs"

Limitations can inspire imagination.  

Today's challenge is to constrain the proportion of the following dinosaurs within the confines of a square.  

Hey, is that brontosaurus using his neck as a scarf?

21 Day Challenge: Day 14 "Improve the Pose"

Today's challenge is to improve the original "boring" pose (as seen on the right) by improving the overall visual clarity through dynamic motion.  I'm going for dynamically awesome here!

21 Day Challenge: Day 12 "Four Concepts Drawn Without Words, Letters or Faces"

Today's exercise required us to draw the concepts "anguish", "curiosity", "hope", and "mystery" without the use of words, letters or faces.  I thought it'd be a fun challenge for myself to try this using a pizza pie as the subject (I got the idea during dinner time).

21 Day Challenge: Day 11 "Draw a Monster"

"Dad, are there humans in the closet?"

21 Day Challenge: Day 10 "Super Doodle"

For this exercise I am to completely fill an 8.5" x 11" paper with doodles!  I didn't spend too much time planning it out, I just drew what came to mind.

Life is busy and sometimes it's an obstacle to find time to do things I enjoy, but the awesome truth is that I "get" to doodle, I "get" to create.  How cool is that!?

What do you enjoy doing the most?

21 Day Challenge: Day 9 "Drawing a Light Source"

I'm seeing spots after this exercise!  

Some of these challenges are more so drawing exercises rather than creative expressions.  Bear with me, the next one is called the "Super Doodle" which I think you'll find much more entertaining.

21 Day Challenge: Day 5 "Refinement Sketch"

Drew me a pelican today!  

To refine a sketch is to not go with your first sketch, but to explore and re-draw until its right.

21 Day Challenge: Day 3 "Draw What You See"

In this drawing CHALLENGE I was assigned the task of making images out of spaghetti-like scribbles.  What do you know.. I found Snoopy!  

To better explain this exercise, check out the original video here.

21 Day Challenge: Day 2 "The Continuous Line"

Today's challenge is to draw the following with a continuous line (without lifting the pen): A happy face, Unicycle, Dog, and Hand with Soda Bottle.

I made it extra hard on myself by trying to connect all four.  Try this style out yourself.  It's quite fun!
