Drawing those kind of creatures is a funny exercise. It didn't take much time and yet was a very enjoyable exercise. If you are short on ideas, I recommend trying to mix two random animals (or three, for more daring) and also design some new colors for the resulting creature. I decided to try with hummingbird and shrew combination. I sketched out on paper many other little things, but this one I certainly liked the most.
Something not for kids maybe, but there's gotta be a change from time to time and maybe for those more lazy this will be a good motivation to get some anatomy practice done! ;) I hope you are not too deeply disappointed, maybe you will like this short ride through the drawing process of this image. Personally I am not to fond of the result and I hope t will turn out differently but it's always one more and practice makes you perfect, right?
For today I've prepared another short (ok, maybe not so short) video with me drawing tulips. Somehow I am usually terrible at drawing flowers. On my images they are always heavy and artificial looking. Well, drawing aside, in real life I'm not any better at handling flowers, everything in my pots is either dried or rotten. There must be something in flowers that I don't understand :D I liked those tulips though, maybe you can benefit from this short video too.
After a rather long break and all those speed-painting sketches with videos it's time for something more interesting (at least for me). I drew this as a form of relaxation right after coming back from Japan. Winter still hasn't come where I live so it's still quite appropriate to draw autumn themed things, right? ;) Feel free to read tutorial about flying cats, wool and sweet poppy seed bun. That bun is of the utmost importance.
Believe me or not, it's very hard to find time for writing and making tutorials while I'm in Japan (after all strolling around is more entertaining than sitting in front of computer), but I don't want to abandon the website for so long so here is the next on from the Daily Sketches series. Maybe not very optimistic drawing, but surely a great exercise ;)
