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.

Sweets

Somehow I ended up doodling sweets this afternoon.

I was a little worried about whether or not I was truly developing my visual library and linework just by copying artists over and over again…  but of course that’s a great way to improve, no need for worries. 

This is my own design, as messy as it is. I doodled it from a few photos of sweets from Pinterest.

Sunday sketch

Today I came to my parents’ for lunch and did a sketch from one of my father’s books.

Just a tree.

I won’t even show you what I drew yesterday because it was just so the challenge wouldn’t be lost. In fact, for the next challenge I will make a new rule, which is that it should last for 30 week days, so my weekends are not in jeaperdy. Though, as it is, they really aren’t: the challenge is…
