15 Day Drawing Challenge: Week 3

May 1st, 2014

15 Day Drawing Challenge complete! Well, mostly. This week has been so crazy that I had to cheat a little and combine days 11 and 12. I found some old colored pencils that I forgot I had and played around with them a bit. I love the smell of colored pencils! Don’t you? It takes me right back to the collection of pencil shavings I kept when I was a weird kid.

Thank you to everyone who joined my 15 Day Drawing Challenge. You guys are the best! Don’t forget to look at everybody’s drawings on Instagram (#15DayDrawingChallenge). If you missed the challenge, just start it whenever it’s convenient. There’s no deadline for spending some quality time with your sketchbook!

11. a diagram + 12. something you’re afraid of: a roach (It was so hard to even draw this. I kept getting creeped out.)

13. a plant: a cactus (Because they’re so darn cute.)

  1. All of these look incredible, I love themxx

  2. This is such great exercise for an artist – I might try one with painting – Feeling a little uninspired and it will force me to get back to enjoying my work – You are so talented Amanda, your drawings look great!

  3. These drawings are so detailed ! How do you do that and be so patient?
    At first I intended to try you challenge, but I’m afraid I’m not so talented as you are… Well, maybe with a little (huge?) practice I can produce something…

    Just discovered this. I have been drawing by copying other artist’s work. This will give me a chance to try to draw some things on my own. no where near your skill, but who cares, drawing is fun.

I love your comments more than I love chocolate (almost).
