Working on this was super fun! It was a nice way to practice pressure control on my pencil. Hopefully, I'll be able to rely less on erasers with time. And... My proportions were off, so I ended up with a chonkier mouse.

The energy of these mice's poses takes my mind to Redwall stories and the Mouseguard comics. Also even though you say the proportions are off, they give the mouse a body that still makes sense.

You know... mushrooms. Ink. I think I should mix sketching with playing from now on.

I can tell you had fun with the mushroom village/kingdom. The fact that you're getting to that point of enjoyment means you're going to have an intrinsic motivator to keep improving. Learning to love the process.

I am happy to see others posting stuff here. I was a bit slacking with observational drawings. But anyway here is some. I have noticed that it is very hard to keep this habit if I am not going outside regularly. If I stay at home and work-work-work, my sketching does kaput.

I love how the lines are so clean

Day 4. Very unconfident lines. I think I've accepted I'm not gonna be filling one page with drawings for each of these days. I think the main lesson/point for this challenge is to establish a routine of drawing daily and that's more important imo, so I will just focus on making sure I do draw stuff every day. But for this assignment I'll just post drawings I made with real life references.

Here's my day 3 drawing. I missed over a month of drawing since day 2 but I assume it's going to be like that for me. I hope I will have time to make this more daily though. For this prompt I'm not sure I can keep to the "linear drawings" part. I also just realized the goal is to fill up one page with drawings rather than do one drawing a day... Will try to actually fill a whole page with drawings in future days.

Day 2. Struggling with drawing confident lines, both straight and curvy. Also with making sure I have an even tone. But I will keep chugging on.

Here's day 1. I took a picture of the subjects but I actually drew them from direct observation so the angle in the drawing is different from the angle in the picture.

I forgot the requirement for this assignment was to use only C curves, S curves, and straights and just treated this like the first simplify assignment but was allowed to use curves this time. It's really easy to see from the snail. I'll redo these after watching the demo.

Here are my mushrooms. For the first page I put the 8 ellipses in order. I mostly liked to draw the faces facing in different directions. Controlling which side of the ellipses is darker was difficult.

Here's my pear before the demo, after the demo, and the reference pear.

Corrected the shape of the pear on the bottom right.

I tried to make sure all the edges were made with straight lines but I realized I drew the lines too dark and didn't want to erase and redraw them. I erased one near the bottom right and you can still see a ghost of it...
