Doodle-A-Day 14/1/16

Archer 3

So I’m two weeks into the new year and so far so good. I’ve managed to keep up with Doodle-A-Day so far, even if I haven’t been posting all the results.

This is today’s attempt. It might look familiar to those of  you who read ‘Fire’ by Kristin Cashore as I used the model on the front of the book to work from for stance and scale. I’m not very happy with the face or the hands, but that would make sense as these are the two biggest weak spots I have in drawing.

I think over the next few days I’m going to focus my doodles on hands to try and improve my technique. They’re tricky at the best of times but I’m not going to get better if I don’t practice.


  1. I have to disagree with you on one point: I think the hands look great. Drawing hands have always been one of my weak points as well, but I think you did very well with them in this drawing. If anything, on her right hand, the fingers could have curled around the bow a bit more, but otherwise I think you did very well.
