Today I was a total REBEL!! and I didn’t even attempt the assignment given. I’ve been feeling like I am lacking in my knowledge of the basic structure & proportions of cats. So I reviewed that a bit with sketches for myself. Breaking the rules is fun and important and stimulating in art, but I think it’s a good principle to know your basics and make a conscious decision to veer off when you want to. For the love of God, I don’t want to be making disproportionate cats unwittingly!!! (Although this cat’s right eye is higher than his left. Perhaps he was stepped on as a kitten?!)
I’m liking this daily challenge. I’m trying to figure out if it would benefit from any tweaks to keep me doing it long term. I’m realizing I love cats, but do I love cats in “art” vs cats in “real life?” I rather like monsters and people in art… but can I do a year’s worth of them? Hmmmm. I’m considering upgrading to a 30 day commitment and if all goes well, a 365 day commitment. I have things to ponder. And this is good. Walking into uncertainty and not running away makes you stronger!
I’m also a stinkin’ hour late getting to bed. I’ve been fussing with WordPress and trying to figure out how to load multiple pictures, what is a “featured photo” or a “blog photo/icon?” Oh, I’ll kick this program’s butt!!! LOL! – Ok, more likely IT will take ME down!
^ Rawr!!! Maybe my favorite sketch for the night.
