21-day drawing challenge: Day 2

It’s been a long while since I last did continuous line drawings– day 2’s challenge. Specifically, we were challenged with creating:

  • A smiling face
  • A hand holding a soda bottle
  • a man riding a unicycle
  • a running dog

Here are my drawings.

smiling face | continuous line drawing A smiling face. I tried several (you might see bits of them on some of the other images). With this one, I felt satisfied with the results.

man on a unicycle- continuous line drawing The man on a unicycle. I’ve never drawn a unicycle before, so I needed some photo reference. I tried one in a side view, but getting the pedals and the unicycle the way I wanted was a pain. I found a “dead-on” shot of a unicycle, and it occurred to me that using that angle would work with the structure of the cycle, especially because I was dealing with one line.
