Drawing Challenge #Day 4

Day 4’s challenge was to look at and draw my hand in five of seven suggested graphic styles. I chose and drew the following five styles:

  • Continuous Line – In a single line, without lifting your pencil. Though I didn’t lift the pencil, I did double-back to draw each finger nail. Not sure if that is allowed. In fact, I’m not sure why anyone would use this style, unless they are going for line animations.
  • Cartoon style – This is the style I want to develop further, as I do want to be able to draw cartoons.
  • Realistic – I think this is really the style I go for, by default, in most cases. I’m fairly decent at it.
  • Graphic style – The 21-Day Drawing Challenge Course that I’m doing unfortunately provided only a single reference drawing and not much details about what this style is all about. I think need to research this style more. I tried to Google it but this is such a broad term, that I didn’t get any promising results. If anyone can suggest a good link, I’d be grateful.
  • Chunky style – Again I need to research this style. Based on the single reference image provided in the challenge, I gathered that you need to draw using thick, bold lines, so that’s what I’ve done. Again if anyone has any suggestions on this style, it would be really useful.

So here are my drawings:

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.
