Drawing Challenge #Day 10

Day 10’s challenge is pretty simple – I just needed to fill up a page with doodles. Wikipedia defines a doodle as “a drawing made while a person’s attention is otherwise occupied.” I was a doodler throughout my school and college days. Now, I doodle in office meetings. Although some people think equate doodling toContinue reading “Drawing Challenge #Day 10”

Drawing Challenge #Day 9

Day 9’s challenge was to look at images of some man-made, mechanical objects that were provided as reference and then draw out one of them as precisely as possible. No tracing was allowed, and we were free to apply some amount of creative license in our approach. The objective is to be realistic, but notContinue reading “Drawing Challenge #Day 9”

Drawing Challenge #Day 8

Day 8’s challenge was to add shading to a given image based on the defined light source. The same image was repeated multiple time in the reference sheet, with the light coming in at different angles in each variation. We were supposed to print out the reference sheet and add in shadows in each imageContinue reading “Drawing Challenge #Day 8”

Drawing Challenge #Day 7

Day 7’s challenge had simple instructions – draw any subject you are passionate about. However, the challenge was not that easy to complete, I thought about it a little and decided to draw my pet dog, Cheeku. As of now, although I’m fairly decent at drawing after looking at an existing drawing or photo (inContinue reading “Drawing Challenge #Day 7”

Drawing Challenge #Day 6

Day 6’s challenge was to draw one of the four suggested subjects in Cubist style, which was made popular by Pablo Picasso. Frankly, I must say I don’t really ‘get’ Picasso or the Cubism style. In many of the Picasso’s paintings, I can’t even figure what exactly is being depicted. The course I’m doing alsoContinue reading “Drawing Challenge #Day 6”

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 oneContinue reading “Drawing Challenge #Day 5”

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 thatContinue reading “Drawing Challenge #Day 4”

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. 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 interpretedContinue reading “Drawing Challenge #Day 3”

Drawing Challenge #Day 2

Day 2’s challenge was to draw images with a single continuous line, that is, without taking your pencil off the paper. A number of drawings were suggested. I tried them all, but I’m afraid this is the only one that came up even halfway decent. I definitely need more practice with continuous-line drawings.
