21-day drawing challenge: day 5 (#draw21days)

My apologies for the delay… Prior church commitments kept me from staying on track, and I feel like I’m playing catchup, but, so be it.

The challenge for day 5 was “refine”. We were given 7 choices, and were asked to select one, and go with it. They were:

  • Bigfoot
  • “Your boss”
  • A shark
  • Skull
  • Pelican
  • Evil Space┬áVillain
  • Horse

I kicked a couple of ideas around on a sheet– Bigfoot, a skull, even a pelican.

But I kept coming back to the “villain” idea. So I took it, and refined it a bit. The end result is on the second sheet. Here’s a close-up.

Nowhere in the directions did it say the villain had to be humanoid. And, even though the idea of a human being considered evil in space is appealing and potentially more frightening, I decided to go with something a little more insect-like in nature.

How did yours come out? I’m going to check stuff out later and see what others created.

Gotta admit, I’m really enjoying these challenges.

 

 

 

 

Create Something Every Day (#daily365)– for April 30

Wow. I was aware I had dropped the ball there for a while, but didn’t realize it had been almost 2 whole months. That changes today. I’m getting things back on track a step at a time. This is the first step. I’ve been thinking a lot about my high school years the last few … Read more Create Something Every Day (#daily365)– for April 30

Create Something Every Day (#daily365)– for April 15

Originally I had planned on doing something related to the Doomsday clock (something about “tax day, deadlines, that sort of thing), but scrapped it doing the “idea” stage. Then I got involved with prepping for a phone interview, and next thing you know, we’re on Sunday and I haven’t done anything for a couple of … Read more Create Something Every Day (#daily365)– for April 15

Create Something Every Day (#daily365)– For March 10

Still making an attempt to get caught up. I could go the easy route and write off the missed days and “reset” the counter, so to speak. Like C-3PO’s thinking in Star Wars: Well, I’m not going that way. It’s much too rocky. This way is much easier Well, I’m not going that way. I’m … Read more Create Something Every Day (#daily365)– For March 10

Create Something Every Day (#daily365)– for March 7

So my attempt at catching up has been less than successful, and at this point, I’m about a week behind. So, without further ado, here’s the CSED that corresponds to 3/7. Some thoughts on the CSED: I picked up The Kentucky Headhunter’s Electric Barnyard at the library the other day– purely on a nostalgic whim … Read more Create Something Every Day (#daily365)– for March 7

Create Something Every Day (#daily365)– For March 6

So, as of today (March 9), I’m still behind by a couple of days. It’s my fault, really. I set a challenging goal for March, and it’s proving hard to keep up. But I’m determined to catch up on these in the coming couple of days. In the meantime, here’s today’s piece. Some thoughts on … Read more Create Something Every Day (#daily365)– For March 6
