Our Design content manager Kristin Ellison takes on our 21-Day Drawing Challenge and lets you see the daily results.
Today Von challenged us to draw a visual narrative—to tell a story with our drawing, without using speech bubbles.
The concept came pretty quickly, but I found it a little daunting because I have a hard time drawing people and perspective.
Clearly there are some proportion issues going on because if the man were to actually sleep in his bed, he would never fit. Additionally, I found it difficult to get the feet to look right.
I’m happy with how the puppy in the bed turned out. It’s a simple sketch but I feel like it’s the strongest part of today’s drawing.
