Art challenge #2


Recommended Posts

Same as last year!😄 You can do different colors and draw something else this year if you want. Me, on the other hand.

Going. To. The. Same. 

Yes, that includes the poses I picked and style.

Let's see if I actually did improve some things.

This challenge is to help you learn to use a limited color palette and get better at drawing one thing.  

Here are the rules:

1. Use an app; online random color picker or just let someone pick for you so you have 5 different colors for seven days (I used:  http://colormind.io/ )

2. Pick what you want to draw for seven days (remember you can only draw that one thing) using these colors, e.g. Niche, animals, fruits, people, backgrounds...

3. Hopefully enjoy it.

Or just see how I struggle because I'll be posting them here AGAIN.😆

I'll be doing Niche art and here are the only colors I'm allowed to use for each day when drawing them. (You can use white and black if you decide you need them)1516832322_7dayartchallenge.thumb.jpg.82f66e2686df633c3f56d6170f428584.jpg

Cool idea!  I may stick around to see that and maybe give it a try.

Also, sorry for being part of yesterday’s mess.

It's alright. :)

Well here is my DAY 1

I used a weird mix of cross hatching to make the darker shadows with the brown. Not sure how much I improved. I like that the snout isn't crooked this time.

Well here is Day 2

I think I like last years one more...Well at least this time it doesn't look like it has abnormally long neck.

Day 3

I couldn't stand the pose I did last year so I changed it up a bit. Also the position of the sun? Why did I put the sun that close, poor thing must be on fire😆 I think I haven't practice drawing rocks it would seem so I just plopped down some bad moss. Really need to start practicing that again.

Day 4

I got a new drawing tablet so excuse me while I get used to it. (some lines are to wobbly) I kept it simple. Not to much shadows. It might look like I used other colors but I just overlayed some. Red and yellow makes brown, and so forth.

Can't say I like this one very much.

Day 5

I don't know why I did such a weird background last year. I tried to do it better... (So, many wobbly lines)

Day 6

Well we're almost at the end. I do have some questions for myself when I drew this last year... The Bg is a bit lackluster.

Well here I am the last day. Day 7

I tried making use of the layer types in this one. So, that I can get lighter reds in (with the overlay). I still placed shadows that doesn't make a lot of sense... but I think it looks alright.
