30 Day Art Improvement (Hell) Challenge

Journal Entry: Wed Mar 11, 2015, 10:57 AM
Taken from AbelPhee's journal:
30 Day Art Improvement (Hell) ChallengeI originally posted this on my Tumblr blog, and since it seems to be popular I thought I'd challenge people here.
30 Days of Art Improvement Challenge
Are you tired of feeling like your art just isn't improving? Do you want to do a 30-day challenge that's actually useful? Welcome to 30 Days of Improvement Hell.
I made this because I've been feeling super 'blah' about my art these days, and I needed something to kick-start myself. Who wants to do this with me!? Start now or whenever you can (now you procrastinators!). Challenge yourself and have fun at the same time!
Tag your posts with #Improvement Hell (more for Tumblr posts, but I suppose you can do it here too) so everyone can follow along and see each other's awesome artwork.
What are you waiting for? START!
    Self-Portrait - Introduce yourself Draw a figure using a reference - link to reference Draw a figure that's in action, using a reference - link to referenceDra


I'll link my progress under the list

I made this because I've been feeling super 'blah' about my art these days, and I needed something to kick-start myself. Who wants to do this with me!? Start now or whenever you can (now you procrastinators!). Challenge yourself and have fun at the same time!
