Doodle Wednesday

One of my challenges for 2016 was to improve my drawing skills and specifically to improve at drawing people. I’ve decided therefore, that Wednesday shall be the day that I show off all [if any] of the drawing and doodles that I’ve completed during the week. So for today, the first doodle Wednesday, I present today’s attempt at drawing people. I also did a few doodles this week, a hand from the cover of Skulduggery Pleasant Mortal Coil and a rose since it was apparently national rose day the other day. I’m happier with the hand more than the rose since faces and hands are the two things I struggle to draw most.

Deadpool and Minnie The Minx #FreeComicBookDay

Have you guys ever heard of Free Comic Book Day before? I haven’t. Recently it seems that quite a few national/international days have been popping up and I knew nothing about them at all. Of course it’s great for bloggers since we always have sometime to ramble about, but back to the topic at hand. According to the Twittersphere, today is Free Comic Book Day and it seems a heck of a lot of people are tweeting about it. I’ll admit that I’ve never been much of a comic book reader, aside from the Beano when I was a child, because hey! Who doesn’t love Beano? I used to keep my collection in an box I’d decorated with sticky back vinyl that had the world map printed on it. Minnie the Minx was my favourite character with Dennis the Menace a close second. I think the fact that Minnie had short hair like mine and liked scrambling around with the boys appealed to me. I spent most of my primary school days playing with lads …

Doodle-A-Day 25/1/16

Behold one of the greatest joys of my life, shoes. This was a rough sketch of one of my boots that I tend to wear most days. I was really struggling to draw anything tonight and in the end I kicked off a shoe, deposited on my desk and decided ‘Right. I’m not very good at shoes, I’m going to do something about that.’ That is what I want 2016 to be about for me. Finding my weaknesses and doing something to strengthen myself. I love drawing but I let myself get bogged down in what I can and can’t draw. Therefore, my for this year is to try and push myself in some way each day. A few of you have commented that you really like the idea of this challenge and if you want to join in, even if it’s just for a week or so, feel free add links to your own daily doodles in the comments below. I’d love to pop over and see what you’ve created.
