Drawing a Day Challenge 2018: Day 4

I know, it’s Day #5…I’m late getting this post up. I didn’t finish the drawing last night until almost 10, and by that time…all I wanted to do was pass out!

Yesterday I had two sweet little 4 year old boys here for the day. They arrived at 7:30 and hung out with me until 12:30 when I took them to school. I was able to draw until I picked them up at 3, but then had them until 4:30/4:45ish and had all the mom jobs until about 8 last night kids finally went to bed and the hubby got home.

It was a long day, but I managed to get the drawing completed:

Drawing A Day Challenge: Day #3

Oh man oh man oh man what a rough day.

I have no idea what my problem was, but I just could not concentrate. I wanted to just throw the drawing out the window and never look at it again more times than I can count. After 2+ hours of fighting with it, I gave up.

I moved on to Plan B, another drawing that I had planned for later in the challenge. I got to work, and within ten minutes I was frustrated and again gave up.

Then Plan C started. This particular subject was going to be the very last drawing for the challenge, and as I’m super excited about this one, I figured it’d cheer me up and get me back in gear.

Yeah, well, no such luck. The composition wasn’t looking right, proportions were off, and I couldn’t find my resource image for a particular part.

I wanted to just throw in the towel and walk away from it all…but as I had set a goal for myself, I didn’t want to stop just because I wasn’t feeling it today. I need to push through at times, and that’s hard for me. I decided to give Plan A one last shot, and with only half an hour left before everyone got home, I got her done….
