21 days creative exercise: Days 10-12

Instead of painting my header, I decided to stay with the idea of using my 15 minutes every day for sketching. (but nothing too impressive here I'm afraid!)

Day 10: I find I sit for the first 5 minutes trying to figure out what to draw. I've been trying to push quirky strange angles in my illos a bit more so this was an uninspired attempt to do a bit more of that.

Day 11: I got inspired by Alicia's perspective sketches so thought I'd try some myself. Here's Jack & the beanstalk bird's eye view...

Day 12: snail's eye view.

OK, off to do some painting now! :)

Nice job with the perspectives. I might have to try some of those during the last week of the challenge. I'll let that be my more daring week! ;)

These are very cute kim! I specially like the one from Jack and the Beanstalk looking up.

I don't know if you've heard about the Orphan Works, but I proposed to spread the word to 5 friends. You are friend number 4 :o). Here is my post. Read it and if you want please spread the word.
