More animal sketches from my self-imposed 365 creative project. Already it is becoming a habit... sometimes spending 5 minutes on a quick rendering, other times longer. The important fact of the matter is the commitment to do it everyday - which I have done for 10 days now. Babysteps, I know, but rewarding nonetheless. A great side note - the sketches and renderings often lead to other forms of art or other purposes of art, so this project has become a stepping stone (of sorts) for me creatively in expanding into even more ideas and new pieces. For example today a did several sketches of animals and insects, working on ideas that I plan to try out in polymer clay. It is a process I have not done in the past... 2D to 3D but one that is really fun to see come to fruition.
