Drawing Challenge in Action: Day 13

2014_08_21_DrawDay13

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.
