Butt chicken

Yes, I wish I had not done this freehand so that I could erase that line right there in the middle. 

Not all sketches look good after all, I guess… This one is funny looking.

A study of coffee

I really loved this engraved/cartoonish style from that reference I used yesterday, so I used it again.

I will continue studying this style this week, and later I will try to create my own art using it.

Ice cream and Popsicles

Yesterday I drew a little hamburger late at night for the sake of the challenge. Today I had more time, so I played around with my watercolors.

As usual, sorry for the lousy photo.

I had a lot of fun, as I always do, with watercolor, but I know I still need to learn the proper techniques.

It is on my to-do list.

What’s next?

Just a little doodling today…

These are food items from a few pins I saved.

Guess what the next challenge will be about?

Yes, indeed.

Food.

But, just to be clear, no weekends this time.

The last day

Well, it has now been 30 days since I started drawing plants for the challenge, and I must say… while I learned A LOT, I think it is time to change the subject.

Don’t get me wrong, I will be drawing plants for the rest of my life, they are my passion, but I have a whole list of themes planned out for the next challenges.

And by the way, if anybody is listening, I would love to get some suggestions!

To conclude, here is the last sketch of the last day, a gift for a dear friend of mine. We call these fruits pitangas (you might remember them from Some line work).

I used pencil, watercolors and ink. It is supposed to look “sketchy”.

Reminiscence

There is this game I love, it is called The Legend of Mana. In this game there is a cactus.

His name is Li’l Cactus, and he is a shy little cactus.

“He is a cactus of few words, but he happens to be thinking about many things.”

He likes to be told stories, and then write them down on his diary.
