Opened up my Natural History book from the Smithsonian and the Emerald Tree Skink was the first animal on the page that grabbed my attention. Lizards are adorable but its hard to know where to place their limbs. (1/3/24)

I know that I'm too tense in my grip but this really showed me that.

It was such a fun challenge! Do you plan on doing anything like this in the future? Like maybe weekly challenges or something so that we as a community can all draw together and interact more often. I love getting to draw along with everyone else but I'm not caught up to where the courses currently are. Thanks again for having this event, it was awesome!

Here are my drawings from today so far! Started in pencil with 1m sketches, then switched to markers and pen. I think I like the 5m poses the best. For all of my marker drawings I started with blocking out the silhouette, I think this helps me with proportioning and keeping the energy of the pose. Silhouettes are what can really make a character memorable in a comic. After I did the silhouette fills I then went in with a fine line pen to accentuate the point of shape and contrast. On some I had time to go in with more marker/pen and show some form/shading lines. I love the poses in this pack today! I'm going to keep drawing (maybe with some better quality paper lol) so I'll probably add some more to this post later!

I drew these yesterday from the photo pack. I didn't exactly do any human beans, or if I did they got erased in the process. But I feel like I learned a lot in the process of drawing these. The poses were so challenging and getting the positioning and proportioning right proved a huge hurdle. My friend who was trained as an animator looked at the 10 minute ones and told me "remember that legs are bigger and thicker than they seem"

I didn't get to draw as much as I wanted yesterday but I did do this. Used these colored alcohol markers for the first time in a while, and used this vellum Bristol paper for the first time. This took around 45 minutes but sadly I didn't finish all that I wanted to in that time frame, oh well.

I forgot to post these yesterday but here are my gesture drawings for day 8!!! I never did gesture until last fall when I decided to take an art class. The teacher made us do so much gesture and now it's something I love to do.

My drawings of facial expressions!! I was stiff in the beginning, loosened up around the 2/3m mark, but totally tensed up again during the 30 min one. The only thing i like about the 30 min one was the eyes, I lost so much of the energy that I captured in the faster sketches. Gotta keep in mind to start fast and loose as if I was doing a 1 minute pose, the extended time makes me slow down too much.

Sadly I didn't have time to do Day 6, and didn't have time to do Day 7 until today! Hadn't worked with my alcohol markers in a while, realized some of them were dried out, oh well. Here's my day 7 drawings :) Both 20min

Today was a journey LOL, I always try and make my characters either nude or with skin tight or super baggy clothing to cover up for the fact that I struggle with fabric. So, trying to put clothing together with characters actually doing things made this very challenging, especially with the shorter poses I did (as you can see I copped out with the longer ones). The longer ones were fun to see come together though, and since I didn't think I was going to get anything good out today with how the shorter ones were coming out, I'm glad the colored one turned out ok.

I LOVED THIS THEME SO MUCH AHHHH! Had my day off today so I got to spend more time drawing. Started with 30s, then 1m, 2m, 5m, 10m, 30m, and what was supposed to be 45m but the sun went down too much so it ended up being 18m. I can see myself start to loosen up as I did the 30 sec ones (i moved from bottom to top). For the other days of drawing on here I've kept things pretty analytical and focused on straight accurate lines, today I decided to let loose and just scribble away. I love doing 30s continuous line drawings and that kinda spiraled into doing continuous line drawings for all the other ones. So all of these just started with one continuous scribble, but at around the 5/10 min clock I started picking up my pencil a bit and adding more elements. I am really proud of how these turned out, esp my 30 min one. :)))) Also, working outside in natural light makes drawing so much more fun!! I'm gonna post these on my instagram too so plz check them out there if you can! instagram.com/t_rch

My 25 min layins for today! Wish I'd had the time to do more. I did a lot of portrait work when I was younger, I only wanted to draw faces and eyes. I've spent a lot of the last year getting out of my comfort zone and drawing the whole figure, it's nice to focus back on the head for a bit.

I was able to get two 25 minute poses done. I really liked doing this challenge, I feel like I learned a lot. I'm really excited for the next 11 days!

Here's my first Proko course drawing! Woo! Drew the apple first from a piece of fruit I had in front of me. Then the pear on top while looking at the picture. The two pear drawings below were done while/after watching Stan's demo. I'm already enjoying this so much. (10/27/23)
