Here we are at Day 20 already, “Something Orange”. This one is definitely less ambiguous than a lot of the other prompts, although I had to force myself NOT to draw an orange.
I thought I’d give stippling a try again because, as I said in yesterday’s post, it’s actually pretty fun. It is time-consuming though – this drawing wasn’t as big as a postcard and it still took an hour.
I’m getting a little better at getting the right tones, but my technique still needs a lot of work.
Since I don’t have any orange markers, this was actually a red medium tip felt pen in my sketchbook; I replaced the color in Photoshop.
Also, I’ve stumbled across another blogger doing the 30-Day Challenge, but she’s closer to the beginning (although not really; she says she’s blogging on a 10-day delay). I asked her permission to link to her and got it, so you can find her blog in the links at the bottom.
My friend Niki tells me if you read a blog post and don’t comment, it makes baby Jesus weep. Don’t make baby Jesus weep – there’s an easy to use comment form down below.
