Days 4 & 5 (Laura)

Here are today's and yesterday's sketches. I like yesterday's, but I really, really don't want to put today's up. =P It's ugly. I can't draw people. I shouldn't have even tried, but I did, and now the ugliness is penned onto the paper and spreading over the internet. *sigh* I KNEW I should have used a pencil!!

I'm pretty satisfied with this one. Like the note says, it's a continuous line drawing. I didn't pick up the pen until the very end! No, not quite as nice of a continuous drawing as some people create, but it's fun to do! And then I added watercolor pencil and water. I ended up pushing the 10 minute limit to the very last second, but I got it all done in time. =)

Today's picture:

I don't even remember what it started out being, but it looked all wrong, so I made a hobbit-like person and Smeagol. I like the way Smeagol's head attaches to his neck, but I think that's about it. Like I said, maybe I shouldn't draw with pen anymore. =/
(Even though it's a really nice pen! I 'stole' it from work, replacing it with a ballpoint pen that writes just fine but is mediocre quality. ;)

I also have the pleasure of sharing several that the Challenge's Facebook fans drew! This one is from Heidi. She has some very lovely drawings from this challenge. =)

So pretty! 

And this is from Lee.

I like the colors she used, and the way the wine looks like it's splashing into the glass! Lee has such a neat style to her art!

Great job, folks!
