Day #365 – Maia Carrying on the Torch

The challenge is over!

I’ve completed the most ambitious challenge I’ve ever set myself. I am pleased.

How much my drawing has improved I’m not really sure. Sometimes I feel not at all… other times I feel it has changed a little for the better. Either way, I’ve definitely drawn every day and with that I can’t argue.

The drawing is another of Maia, the most significant thing that happened to me in 2013. It seems fitting that in the source photograph she was chewing a pencil!

Thanks to anybody who followed my progress and I wish everybody success in their 2014 resolutions.

Happy New Year!

Day #362 – Drawing of Maia’s Cousin

My sister in law bought me some nice art supplies for Christmas. Tested them out further with this drawing of her daughter who is only a few months younger than Maia and extremely cute!

I think the drawing came out quite nicely and it was enjoyable to work with pens and different shades.

Day #356 – Pointing forward

It’s an ink pen sketch with some white charcoal highlights. Hand is alright… head… not so much.

Day #354 – Brian Blessed Drawing

Kinda similar facial hair to yesterday’s drawing of Donald Sutherland. It’s Brian Blessed; the loudest man in Britain.

Day #353 – Donald Sutherland Drawing

A drawing of Donald Sutherland. Used toned paper and white charcoal for the highlights. I think I captured the essence of the source photo better in this drawing than almost any other in this whole challenge. I might look back at it tomorrow and totally disagree with that statement but right now I feel pretty satisfied. Probably spent an hour on it total.
