Daily Drawing Challenge
A daily drawing habit was the very best thing I ever did for myself artwise. It helped me see shapes rather than objects. It help me train my hand to work with my eyes. It challenged me to get creative with the composition to keep it interesting. But, most importantly, it forced me to do something creative EVERY DAY! So. Thatâ€™s something I would like to give back to you folks. I will be taking pictures of simple objects that you might find anywhere. I will post them here in color and grey-scale for you to use as a reference. They are Creative Commons license, or at least they will be, so use â€˜em for anything that you arenâ€™t selling. If you want to use them in something youâ€™re going to sell, please e-mail me to discuss it. If you would like to share your daily practice, please do so with the hashtag #randomogrifier. If you would like to have the challenge photos e-mailed to you, sign up for The Newsletter (http://www.artisticbiker.com/?page_id=1896). The goal is to spend 5-10 minutes on daily drawing practice, but there is no time limit.
Here are the reference photos from this week’s “Random” Object sketches:
I’m trying to figure out the best way to deliver the “Random” Object photos. Currently, I post them every morning to Facebook, twitter, and instagram. But if you don’t go there specifically, they’ll just get lost in your feed. If I post them daily to the website, then the newsletter comes out all garbled. So I thought I would make a permanent home in the gallery and post them all once a week here. Probably change my mind next week, but here goes.
I let myself get tied up with admin stuff today and completely spaced. Here is a “Random” Object for today.
