Days 15-17November 22, 2011
Trying my best to get caught up here. :)
Day 15's challenge was Draw a Family Picture.
I attempted to draw miniature portraits of everyone in my family, putting each portrait in a frame that somewhat "matches" each person's personality. If you'll recall how my previous miniature drawing went... you'll understand why I gave up. It's a project to come back to when I have the patience.
(How is it that my stick figure drawings are worse than most people's? I don't get it.)
Day 16: Inspiration
This one was a no-brainer! Of course The Lord of the Rings is one of my biggest inspirations!
However, I'm wondering what made me think that I could paint a four-inch hand. I can barely draw a hand (particularly foreshortened ones like this)-- and I'm just learning how to paint. For what it's worth, though, I'm stubborn and spent a couple hours on this and I think that the final painting at least passes for a hand with a Ring of Power on it. :)
Day 17: Favorite Plant
"Should I draw a rose? Maybe those flowers by the side of the house? Perhaps athelas or mallorn or the Two Trees of the Sillmarillion? The Party tree? The lantern-tree that grew from Janis' peice of a street lamp? What about a fairy's mushroom? Or some of the strange-looking trees in the Japanese gardens?"
I couldn't decide so I drew the plant from Wall-E.
Of course, afterwards, I realized that I should have drawn the pizza plant!
Please go ahead and use a seperate link for each day's drawings. :)
