1. Myself

Okay, so this drawing challenge.
It is harder than I expected.
Somehow I managed to completely overestimate my drawing skills and my self-esteem is now rock bottom after going to a few deviantart accounts and various other places for inspiration.
Yes I need inspiration to draw myself.

Look at this. What is this sorcery?!
And this. 
This belongs in a museum, not on Google images.
And this thingy. 
So. This person is amazing at drawing, and knows how to do hair? Whyyyyy?!
And this. 
I want this person's hands. Wait. What.

But I drew anyway, because I said I would do the drawing challenge so I will do the drawing challenge. Prepare to be scarred for life. 

No that's not how I stand. But the legs looked like spaghetti, so that's how I drew them to save myself the pain.
Please nobody ever ask me to draw again. 


  1. Keep at it. Drawing takes time. I started this challenge too, but only go to day 11. http://www.flickr.com/photos/intrepidflame/sets/72157630326937284/

    Maybe I need to revisit it too.

    1. Certainly would be a great idea to revisit it. Really like your drawing of the orangutan.
      Are your favourite foods ramen and sushi? Also, interesting word to draw - had to google what farouche meant. :)

    2. Here's the deal, when you get caught up to me, let me know and I will continue with you for the rest of the 30 days.

      Yes, Ramen and Sushi (veggie versions though) are my favorite foods.

      And I have loved Farouche for a long time. Sound like someone you know?

    3. To be honest - farouche sounds like me! Is that what you were hinting at? :P

    4. That is what I was hinting at too. Weird coincidence. I was very farouche at your age too.

  2. This is definitely a start!! It always takes practice! I think you did better than I could, I am not very great at art.
    A quote I really enjoy is:
    The greats weren't great because at birth they could paint
    The greats were great cause they paint a lot

    1. I quite like art and I think I'm relatively good at it, but I'm not good at drawing. They're kind of different, but I don't really know how to explain why.
      Thank you for the encouragement - great quote too!

    2. I love that Macklemore quote too. Reminds me of this great Ira Glass piece:
