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.

Day #352 – Nina Anniversary Drawing

Today was me and my wife’s one year wedding anniversary. Time has flown by. Decided to draw her again… onto PAPER too so it works well for the occasion.

I wasn’t too sure about the drawing but she likes it so maybe it’s better than I thought. Definitely some areas that are pretty bad but overall it has a sketchy quality that I quite like.

Day #351 – Aldous Huxley Drawing

It’s almost 2014, it’s a Brave New World and so who better to draw than Mr. Aldous Huxley. Drawing started off okay but ended up getting pretty crappy as I moved past the nose and eyes and tired to draw the rest of the head.

Day #350 – Richard

My mate Richard asked me to draw him. I scolded him for his vanity then remembered it was Christmas so I decided to indulge the lovely boy!

Day #349 – Ayn Rand Drawing

Ayn Rand wrote some of the most influential books of all time and I personally rank Atlas Shrugged as one of the greatest books I’ve ever read.

I’m pretty pleased with this drawing. Perhaps one of my favorites I’ve done.

Day #348 – Pepper Shaker Drawing

Drawing of a pepper shaker. Also a little something I drew entirely from imagination: a skyscraper thing. Rather unremarkable I know.
