Finally a three marker challenge video – I’ve been asked to do it often. In this video I draw a Tunacorn – or my idea of one and colour it in with pink, purple and green – not the most friendly colours!
I said I’d let one person who filled in my questionnaire the chance to choose a video. Mikkel SH was the lucky winner and Mikkel asked me to do a Three Marker Challenge, to draw a fantasy creature in pink purple and green. Well this video is the result – Hope you like it.
Some people find it hard to sketch in public, so why not get some practice in drawing people out of catalogues and magazines? The models are great – they don’t move! do one everyday and you will soon feel that maybe you do it from real life in a cafe or on the street.
Remember that you are not drawing a photograph. That’s what cameras are for. You are drawing a sketch. Your drawing does not have to be a portrait nor does it even have to look the same or use the same colours. It’s your sketch interpretation.
If you make a mistake, that’s great – we learn from mistakes. see if you can finish the drawing then have another go and see if you can get it right, Don’t abandon the drawing if you make a mistake – that can turn into a habit and you’ll never finish anything. Often you can save a drawing or painting by just keeping on going!
