Here’s all of week two’s artwork in one place for your viewing pleasure. (And here’s a link to week 1, in case you missed it: Beginning #SketchDaily).
Days 9 and 10 had the #SketchDaily prompts of “National Pizza Day” and “Spires”, respectively. The little pastel goth girl eating pizza was a lot of fun to draw. But the Spires one was a challenge. I am not as comfortable drawing architecture in a short amount of time. Hence why the weird Alien lady showed up.
What was really cool is my friend Kylie Goetz wrote a poem using “Spires” as inspiration. Here’s that poem in case you’re curious: Inkpired.
After that the prompts were “Pumpkin Spice” (For the 1st day of Fall), “Theater”, “Rooftops”, “Public Transportation”, and “Shoes.”
Pumpkin Spice is actually a portrait of my little sister. She recently moved to the other side of the country and where she’s living now they don’t have the influx of pumpkin-spiced-everything that New England does. Literally the day before this prompt I had mailed out a care package to her filled to bursting with pumpkin spiced everything. So, of course, when that prompt came up, I had to draw her.
“Shoes” turned out a lot more interesting than I had originally thought. I enjoyed playing with the forced perspective to see if I could make the character look like she was floating. And- I’m pretty happy with how that turned out. I was even happier when I found out Kylie wrote another poem using it as inspiration: Inkspired 2: Incantation
I love when we can inspire each other to keep creating. 🙂 What have you been making? Leave me a comment with links to your creations. I’d love to check them out.
