30 Day Drawing Challenge Day 22- Favorite Letter Illustration

30 Day Drawing Challenge Day 22- Favorite Letter Illustration

Injecting content in our drawings can be done in many ways.  Words can add meaning, but illustration has long been a means of telling a story with pictures.   I’ve been getting asking a lot of you over the last few days, so in order to get right to the drawing I’m going to keep today’s instructions simple.

Today’s challenge:  Pick your favorite letter and then illustrate it somehow.  You could Zentangle the letter like we did in yesterday’s challenge, or practice a new font style, but you have creative license today.  An easy way to do it might be to pick a picture of something that begins with your favorite letter…here’s mine:

Have fun with your illustrations!  When ur done, please share the photo with me.

Keep up the great work…you’re almost finished with 30 Days of Drawing!

Here are drawings from a fellow challenger’s sketchbooks:

Great perspective and shadow on both of these sketches!  For more on  light and shadow and how to make a cube look 3-D you can check out Day 19 of the 30 Day Drawing Challenge.  Just follow this link: http://www.artmyrtlebeach.com/2015/05/30-day-drawing-challenge-day-19-cube.html

It’s so fun seeing what you guys are coming up with!  Thanks for taking the time to send them my way. =)

I will be using my Tombow marker in burnt sienna color -947 for a sketch or two during the final couple of weeks of this challenge.  If you would like to get one, it’s around $5-6. Here is a link to order:  Tombow 947 Marker- Amazon
