Warning! This is not pretty, nor anything you would like to see I imagine, but in my defense, I did not look at the paper while “drawing” and did not release the pen from the paper until I was done. How is it called? Blind contour self-portrait. Give it a try! Big chances that it won’t look nice, but it’s really fun to have no clue what you’re doing until the end of it! (At second thought, we would be able to promote this as cubism, wouldn’t we?)
For this exercise, you need a kid. If you don’t have one around, take a very serious adult and make him/her scribble on a blank page — no rules, the messier it gets the harder your life will be, as you need to make something from his/her work of art.
How much time does it take you to fill out 30 circles with different ideas?
Today’s exercise was to go somewhere and spend some time watching people. Easy, right? 🙂 While doing this, consider what you see and come up with one word for different people: 1 adjective, 1 noun, 1 adverb, 1 verb. Then make a sentence out of it even if not logical – what are the chances?! 🙂
If you needed any other proof that you can draw anything you see around you, this is it. I wouldn’t have thought of a simple receipt as a potential subject, but thanks to #28toMake my mind is now open to new possibilities. Great exercise also for practicing type & composition.
In case anyone is interested in what is in my bag, here it is! :))
Yay! I got to draw the cover of my favourite all time album by Coldplay: A rush of blood to the head. In my own way.
Drawing the only plant in the house now that it still is a plant in the house.
It takes 28 days to make or break a habit. This is how I got convinced by CreativeLive to start making creative projects for the next 28 days, the whole month of February. You can also join the fun here, me excited! 😀
Girlish pattern inspired by the Spoonflower contest “80s hairstyles”, so much fun to make!
