    @deeprun Thanks! That’s become my new go-to form of scribble. ;p


    @catwing
    I will persevere! Thank you! Also, I’m curious about the skeleton horse too. >.>

    Your “Swing” was very clever!! *thumbs up* xD


    @ariella-newheart
    Thank you!  And your dragon is awesome, by the way. 🙂

    In all honesty, I like the “ash” enough that I’d frame it.  It’s gorgeous.</p>

    @sageinthemeadow

    I love the Phoenix! Great lines.  Revealing, once again, my line envy.

    @catwing Wow, what a story! That’s a really unique take on the prompt and I love it.


    @sageinthemeadow
    Those are lovely! The dragon looks like it’s lurking in the deepest, darkest part of the sea.


    @deeprun
    Aw, thank you so much. I like your “Winter” drawing. (The snowball looks like it’s about to hit that one guy’s head. What’s his name?)

    The organic curve of the living vines is a great contrast to more geometric and grumbling stones!

     

    So, in the mad dash to catch up, this prompt is “Favorite Place to Be”.  I also discovered how much fun sunsets can be! I’ve avoided them up until now because when I’d do them in watercolor they’d be muddy.

    Forgot to answer your question. The guy is Harz, the main character of my work in progress.

    @deeprun Ooh, your sunset is magnificent! I agree, sunsets are really fun. I don’t recall if I’ve ever done a sunset in watercolor before, but I have used colored pencils. I also love the mist on the mountains in your picture. 🙂 Harz is a cool name, by the way. He seems like a really interesting character.

    @sageinthemeadow @ariella-newheart Thanks. 🙂

    I got more behind. But here’s what I have so far…
    Day 10 ~ Pattern

    blink pattern

    Cause eyes are fun to draw and I thought of a blinking pattern for some reason. *shrug*

    Day 11 ~ Snow

    Snow/Frozen

    Y’all can probably guess who these people are. I tried.

    Day 12 ~ Dragon
    (I was behind and there was a painting thing at the library so I’m just saying this counts as the piece for Dragon. I may draw what I was planning later though. idk.)

    Emerald Dragon
    That’s supposed to be the Emerald in front of the dragon. I actually started with just drawing this catwing (below) cause I figured I could do that fairly easily without a reference (I mostly doodle cats/catwings and eyes(that turn into faces)). But then it just turned into fan art of my book and the Dragon prompt. *shrug*

    Sapphire catwing
    That’s the Sapphire.

    Ruby sword
    And the Ruby. I should’ve done a crown or person, but I was already taking too long so the sword works.

    Day 13 ~ Ash

    fire ash person
    I did consider Spiderman fanart. But then I thought of this idea.

    Day 14 ~ Overgrown

    overgrown sapling
    This was based on that super common church picture of hands holding a sapling. Despite me struggling to draw the branches and roots, cause I don’t hardly draw trees, this turned out nicely.

     

    I have question for all the other artists on this thread. How often do you use reference pictures? I’m curious.

    When your wings are weak and you feel like you can't fly any farther you're halfway there!

    Wow! Good for you to keep going! I especially like the last one.  The face being hidden adds a lot of mystrey and the obvious weight of the heavy tree being easily held by the person captures your attention.

    In regards to reference photos, I’ve done both but have found my strongest work almost always results from using a reference photo.  You’re not a bad artist if you can’t pull it all out if your head!  No one really does (or at least they never show you the five thousand sketches they did previously). Light, shape, shading, angle are all easier to draw more convincingly if you have some example.

    The trick is to use a photo well.  Two examples being human figures and dragons.  Good use:  find a photo or even drawing of the pose you want to use, it saves a lot of headache if you have the foundation correct.  What’s even interesting to do is draw it from your head, then do another sketch from a reference photo.  Bad use? Copying someone else’s picture and saying it’s yours.  But! What is extremely helpful is copying drawings of old masters.  Seriously. It’s worth a whole college level art course.  And the old masters also copied other people’s paintings and such.  Attribution and use are the deciding factor.

    Dragons, what I’m currently working on, benefit from reference photos as well!  Half of it does come from the imagination but even that part is based on images your mind has stored up or previously drawn.

    Sorry for the lengthy answer but this is near and dear to my heart because of my own digital art adventures (read near failures).  When I started using reference photos, the quality of my work changed. Dramatically.

    I’m very curious to what anyone else thinks!

    @catwing Way to go! Keep it up! xD

    Your last 2 pics are my favorite– very nice!

    I’ve still been drawing, but I keep forgetting to post here on the forum…whoops!

    As far as reference pictures go, I use them frequently though it depends on what I’m drawing. I typically use them when I’m drawing an action pose, or to help get the structure correct if I’m drawing a house, or something like that. So basically, things I might be unfamiliar with. (And I try to use multiple pictures, and not rely too heavily on a single photo so that I don’t end up drawing the same thing!)
