Another drawing challenge knocked out, and now it’s time for the obligatory wrap-up.
And, “truth gun” to my head, I’m a bit disappointed with how this one went. During the last drawing challenge we did, I pushed myself to try new techniques and keep trying to ramp up the quality and detail of my work (such as“Couple”, one of my wife’s favorites). This time around, although I do feel I got some good shots in (examples: “Slender”, “Space”, and “Can’t Hear You”), more often than not I was in a rush and I feel like the drawings I posted represented, at best, a disappointingly moderate effort on my part.
Participation was another disappointing area. We started out as 10 or so bloggers, ready to draw our way to glory. Only three of us limped across the finish. Some stalled right out of the gate, not even getting to day 10, and half didn’t make it past the halfway point. Maybe next time though.
Apart from the drawing aspect of this challenge, another goal of mine was to increase my number of readers; the last month has added another 21 fine folks to the reader ranks – I suppose I have to call that a success, but not the level of success I’d have liked, and I attribute that to the moderate effort I put into this challenge.
I also wanted to increase reader participation, but that has proven mysteriously difficult to stimulate.
Now that it’s over, I’m looking forward to doing another drawing challenge, but think I owe some non-art posts along with anything else I post.
And so ends the wrap-up. Until next time.
