Draw Everything June 2: Final Week

Welcome back!  This week ws the final week of Draw Everything June II. Run by Sailor Sakky on deviantART, Draw Everything June is a figure-drawing challenge with a new reference photo posted every weekday.  You can read the rules here: Draw Everything June 2: 2017 Edition.

I’m very pleased with the progress I made over the month – looking back at the first few days, even drawing from reference the poses seem more awkward.  Now I feel more comfortable with reference photos and with using a (slightly) more realistic style.  Mission success! \(^o^)/  But I’m also a little sad it’s over.  Well, there’s next year’s challenge to look forward to!

Here were the last five drawings from the challenge.  Enjoy!

DEJ2 Day 18 Obstinate

“. . . No.”

DEJ2 Day 19 Catch Me

Thought I was falling, but then you caught me.

DEJ2 Day 20 Dance of the Tiger

Lithe grace, aloof beauty, quiet deadliness. . . this is the Dance of the Tiger.

DEJ2 Day 20 Sensei

A kick is just a kick.

DEJ2 Day 22 Dance

Time to dance the night away!

And with that, we are officially done!  Thanks for joining me this month as I attempted Draw Everything June 2!

Now I’m going to try to take a breather from daily challenges. . . at least until Sketchtember rolls around. XD  Until then, I have some paintings I want to finish and a couple of other fun posts to work on.  So see you next week!

Draw Everything June: Week 3

 Aaannnd we’ve finished the fourth week of Draw Everything June!  Can you believe there’s only one week left? O.O  Time really flew!
Run by Sailor Sakky on deviantART, Draw Everything June is a figure-drawing challenge with a new reference photo posted every weekday.  You can read the rules here: Draw Everything June 2: 2017 Edition.  On average, this week’s poses took me 45 minutes to an hour every day. . . bit too long for warmups lol.  Well, I tried some different things like backgrounds, so it’s only to be expected!
On to the photos!
DEJ2 Day 13: Delivery.

“Through rain or snow, up mountain or down valley, they said. . . sigh. . . So of course it would have to be a mountain today.”

DEJ2 Day 14 Path

The path we tread may be dangerous, but at least it was one we chose.

DEJ2 Day 15 Scepter

Shall we dance?
One thing that’s great about Senshi Stock is the variety of models! It’s helpful for learning to do different proportions. ^^

DEJ2 Day 16: Goodbye

“Farewell.” <– Said like Auron from FFX. XD
This is the same gunslinger from previous weeks, but her hair’s in buns today. Which do you prefer? Twintails or buns? ^^

DEJ2 Day 17: Day at the Beach

The perfect day.

See you all next week for the final five poses of Draw Everything June! ^^

Draw Everything June 2: Week 3 Roundup

 Today wraps up the third week of Draw Everything June!  Run by Sailor Sakky on deviantART, Draw Everything June is a figure-drawing challenge with a new reference photo posted every weekday.  You can read the rules here: Draw Everything June 2: 2017 Edition.  There were some ups and downs for me this week – some poses were really difficult! – but overall I think my time is improving and I’m becoming more comfortable working from reference photos. ^^
DEJ2 Day 11: Quiet Moment by River.

When the going gets tough, it’s important to take a moment and remember why you fight.

 

DEJ2 Day 12: Relax by River.

After training, it’s nice to relax a little!

Hope you enjoyed this weeks’ sketches!  See you next week for the fourth installment of this series!

Draw Everything June II: Week 2 Roundup

Welcome back to Week 2 of Draw Everything June!  Run by Sailor Sakky on deviantART, Draw Everything June is a figure-drawing challenge with a new reference photo posted every weekday.  You can read the rules here: Draw Everything June 2: 2017 Edition.  For week 2, there were a bunch of challenging poses – so I’m really happy it’s the weekend and I can recharge a little, haha!  But enough talking, here are the sketches!  Enjoy.

 

DEJ2 Day 3: The Violin Fairy. By River on Strike A Spark. Originally created for Draw Everything June 2.

Sometimes after a victory, Vivi would play beautiful music. The graceful way she played and danced earned her the nickname The Violin Fairy.

DEJ2 Day 4: Infiltration. By River on Strike A Spark. Originally created for Draw Everything June 2.

Annalia: Hey, Leader. Why do I have to be the one to crawl through ventilation?
Leader: Because you’re the quietest.
Annalia: . . .
Leader: What, you thought I’d send Miss Violin Fairy? She’s a great asset to our team, but stealth. . . is not her strong suit. Well, she is a performer after all.
Annalia: . . . 😦
And so, Annalia ended up in the ventilation. 🙂

DEJ2 Day 5 Determination - small version

Sometimes you just have to do what needs done.
A free agent who encounters the Squad, the mysterious gunslinger appears and vanishes again just as quickly. What is her objective? Is she friend or foe? No one knows anything about her. . . not even her name.

DEJ2 Day 6: Resolute. Small version by River on Strike A Spark.  Originally created for Draw Everything June 2.

Time to take care of business.

DEJ2 Day 7 Defender. By River on Strike A Spark.  Originally drawn for Draw Everything June 2.

You thought they left the base defenseless? Think again.

See you next week!
