Challenges 8, 9 and 10

10: 'Take these drawings and reproduce them without line.'  This was quite tricky as it's a true departure from my usual style, but I think they turned out rather well - particularly the top one.  This kind of study might help with my colouring in the future.

 9: 'Do observational drawings of people on the train'.  I was supposed to do four, but somehow only managed 2 :-P The last sketch is of my friend Dan (shhhhhh...)

8: 'Design the label for an invented ale' - this design was inspired by our visit to the Aquarium in Berlin :) Very tempted to develop this into linework, ensuring I give the jellyfish a jaunty expression... :D

Day 5

5: Scenery challenge - drawing of a forest from the perspective of a mouse :) I got a little bit carried away in the detail, I think it might benefit from a revisit and colour soon...

Days 3 and 4...

So, it seems I haven't got off to the best of starts! Some of you may have noticed I managed to miss yesterday too, but luckily have found the time this afternoon to do TWO whole drawings :D

 3: Design your own super-hero costume :D I went for steampunk meets 60s chic...

 4:  Write your name in 10 different fonts.  I like to call the last one 'Squiggly Ghost'.

November Challenge!!

Brendan Kearney and I have challenged each other throughout November to do a drawing a day to show to all you lovely people :) The aim of this is to keep our hand in and maybe come up with something useful now and again!

As we've both been in Berlin for the past few days, here are days 1 and 2:

1: 'Draw your parents from memory' - this was a lot harder than I'd anticipated! I maaaaay have cheated a little bit :-P (shhh don't tell Brendan)

2: 'Draw your earliest memory' - this is me and my great-grandad.  He would sit with me at my nan's house and help me do jigsaw puzzles whilst I drank the sugary milky bit at the bottom of his tea :) By the time it got to 100 pieces I was helping him :-P

I wonder what day 3 will bring?
