Drawing Challenge in Action: Day 16

Day 16

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 use the reference images of an owl and redraw it in an iconic style by reducing its form to simple flat shapes.

To say I struggled with this is a grave understatement.

I wanted to find a way to represent the feathers without having to draw them all, but my attempts were not working.

To me, the end result looks like some little kid bird in a superhero bird mask.
