Review - 21-Day Drawing Challenge


In this new lynda.com video training, the author Von Glitschka walks the audience through a 21-day, or about 50 minutes, tutorial that will help you challenge and grow as an artist. Although the challenges are for traditional, analog drawing, you can still apply the challenges to your digital skills. Part of the video training is sharing the results of each challenge on Twitter and Facebook.

The first creative drawing challenge, which can be drawn in any style, in color or black and white, is to draw a cat based on a few reference photos. The author discusses his finished example, which is a cat character.

The second challenge is to draw one of 4 subjects as a continuous line drawing, using only one line from start to finish, which teaches how to draw complex shapes as one line. The author shares how he approaches a project starting from sketches. The next two challenges are a study of negative space and hand-eye coordination.

This video training was much fun and challenging. However, the novice may need a little more in depth discussion for each challenge.

He has several other training videos on lynda.com including Drawing Vector Graphics, Drawing Vector Graphics: Linear Line Illustration, Drawing Vector Graphics: Patterns, Drawing Vector Graphics: Color and Detail, The Creative Spark, Foundations of Logo Design, Insights on Illustrative Design and Artist at Work: From Sketch to Finished Vector Illustration.
