FOMO! There is this brand of pencils that you only heard stories about. They are the secret to your dream style or skill!
Never used those Prismacolor for portraits? You can’t get the Polychromos to work for you? What better way to try your new pencils out. You might even want to treat yourself with a small set of new pencils especially for the challenge. You can find some links in the Resource section of the site.
Cold pressed, warm pressed, not pressed, bristol vellum, bristol smooth, strathmore, stonehenge, fabriano, archers, canson, sanded paper, pastel mat, drafting film, colored papers…
okay okay I’ll stop now, you get it.
There is a mass out there, and every artist has a different favorite paper. You would like to try them all but somehow you have never gotten the oportunity.
Burnishing, blending, OMS, underpainting, grisaille, substraction technique, mixed media with watercolor/inks/pastels…
There is a neverending list of techniques. You are not brave enough to try those out on your regular drawings? I get that. Well our short drawings throughout the challenge are perfect to experiment. And maybe you will find a new style 😀
You never drew a Portrait? You hate Landscapes? Do you have trouble with drawing shiny objects?
When you think about it you will find a lot of things you have never drawn. Why not try it out during the DRAWember challenge? The prompt will help you to find things to draw, or just draw whatever you like.
