A lot of people have messaged me about the 30 Day Challenge list. I hadn’t realized the link on my old post was down, so I’m reposting it now, as well as letting you all know for the next 8 weeks I’ll be posting every Monday with animated illustrations. Hopefully I can brighten up your otherwise dry work week Monday!
UPDATE: Sorry I fixed the list. There was bunch of dummy text in there. It’s all good now
This is a thing I will do
This is a thing I should do.
Yop, will be doing also.
Looking for more art challenges? Try this on for size.
Decided to draw folks at Reed College’s commencement celebration this week with the added challenge of working straight in ink. So many faces! [Lucy Bellwood]
Artveg assignment from today. Mendicino Farms in LA is full of beautiful people in expensive hats.
Welcome back to Artistic Veggies! Here’s a new challenge, as promised:
This week, take half an hour and go plonk yourself down at a bookstore, coffee shop, cafe, or park and draw the people you see. Don’t get precious. There should be at least fifteen people on the page by the end of your session.
Focus on capturing shapes and attitudes. It’s not a life drawing session — people won’t sit still. But give them a good, hard look and see if you can just throw down an impression on the page.
Submit your results to the blog and stay tuned for a new challenge next week!
Never Stop Practicing.
Art Veg reboot continued: More hand studies!
smarmakescomics said: I miss art veggies! I still check from time to time. Are you going to come back?
Well since you asked…I’ve just been too slammed with work to a run a practice blog so far this year, but I can see about scheduling some simple challenges for the next few weeks! Check back on Monday and I’ll see what I can do on one condition: you have to complete the first three challenges and submit your work to the blog. Deal? Deal!
Yeah folds yeah!!! Homework for clothed figure drawing. Drawing all these helped my understanding of folds a lot!
Everything except the first page was referenced from Barbara Bradley’s book, Drawing People. (A book that I recommend to all you aspiring artists!!!)
More resources, in case any of you are feeling inspired to tackle folds this week.
