get out of that comfort zone!
Never used those Prismacolor for portraits? You can’t get the Polychromos to work for you? What better way to try your new pencils out. You might even want to treat yourself with a small set of new pencils especially for the challenge. You can find some links in the Resource section of the site
You only ever use the same paper? There are so many other options. drafting film, UART sanded paper, canvas, stone, wood… I have linked some options in the resource section.
Burnishing, blending, OMS, watercolor, ink, pens, pastels… Do you often hear others talking about these things but never tried for yourself? NOW is your chance!
Never did a Portrait? Hate doing Landscapes? Have trouble drawing shiny objects? When you think about it you will find a lot of things you never have drawn. Why not try it out during the DRAWember challenge?
I want this to be a fun challenge. You should learn something and enjoy the whole process. This is why YOU should set your limits.
I want you to try new techniques, styles, methods, tools when drawing with colored pencils.
Don't forget to show us your creations on Facebook and Instagram. Use the hashtags #drawember and #drawember2016 so that others can see your work. If you have tried something new during the challenge let us now. Would like to know how you benefitted from the DRAWember challenge.
don't you know where to find good reference pictures?
YOU set the limits
Can you spare 5 minutes for a quick sketch a day? Is is a 10 minutes sketch or a 30+ minutes full colored pencil drawing?
It does not really matter, as long as you take your time to draw something each day and create a habit around that.
