Drawing Challenge #Day 3

Day 3 challenge was super fun. The task was to imagine and draw whatever you saw in the white space (negative space) in the reference image below.

Reference Image provided in 21 Day Drawing Course

We were supposed to print out the reference image and then draw a sketch. However as I don’t own a printer, I drew my sketch digitally. I’ve interpreted it as a yogin (female yogi) surrounded by a halo of light sitting on a baby elephant. Inspired by Hindu mythology, in which, various gods and goddesses are often depicted on various animals.

I think it has come out well, even if I say so myself. I’m quite happy with the result. Here’s a side-by-side view of the reference image and the result so that you can appreciate it better 😉

I have been reading voraciously since the age of five when I first discovered the joys of reading. I would lap up anything in print. Unrolling an emptied newspaper cone with one hand, stuffing roasted peanuts in my mouth with the other, all the while devouring the printed content on the cone with my eyes, was one of my first experiences in hedonistic pleasure. In fact, sometimes I feel that I am on an adventurous journey through the secret dreamworld of other people's imaginations, interspersed with occasional visits to my own life to attend events like graduation, first job, marriage, and so on. As a true-blue reader, I think I am uniquely qualified to comment on and critique other people's works of labour. I can tell exactly what puts the average reader to sleep, what sets their pulse racing, and what has them salivating for more. Write to me at leenatpandey@gmail.com.
