Drawing Challenge #Day 5

Last couple of days were extra busy at work so I couldn’t get back to the drawing challenge. So I can see that I’m not going to finish the 21 Day challenge in 21 calendar days. Might get spread over a couple of months.

Anyway, Day 5’s challenge was to pick and draw any one of the given subjects (your boss, a pelican, a shark, a horse, a skull, and some others) and try to improve your drawing throughout the day, whenever you got a chance.

I decided to draw a shark, I didn’t get to work on it for the whole day, but here’s what I did. I googled for shark images, and tried out a few poses. I had initially thought I would focus on the head and draw a shark with its jaws wide open.

But finally I decided to draw the full body of the shark too. I drew it in Cartoon style not only because this is the style I want to focus on learning but also because I thought a shark is extremely cartoonifiable!

This is my final drawing of the shark. Basically, my improvements were focused on finding the right pose to draw, shading, and outlining.

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.
