Starting on January 1st this year, I gave myself the goal of drawing a Toy Every Day!
Then I added a few more parameters.
First, I was aiming for 5 out of 7 days - it's not always possible to spend the time necessary since I always overdo these things. And the week that I was in the hospital - I didn't do any drawings.
Second, I'd work on 6"x6" cards, and use materials, like alcohol markers, that I needed more practice with.
Third, the toys (I have thousands) would primarily focus on figures. So, not a drawing of an American Girl bicycle, unless there was also an AG doll on it.
Here is the process for the toy I drew today:
|darker markers in the brown and gold shadowy areas|
|warmer browns and yellows, then darkest blues|
|blending the blues so it looks SHINY!|
And then I post them to Instagram.
It is very satisfying to see the collection grow...
...if I can keep this up, then later this year, we can do another Kickstarter and turn the toy comics into a book!
