Drawing a Day: RSM Day 36

Gesture drawing - my daughter smiles

These days I am starting to think I need to retitle these drawings from “Drawing a Day” to “Drawing a Week” since that’s more of the pace I can keep. Either way, I have drawn more this year because of my own personal motivation here, than I have drawn in the last 8 1/2 years (since my first child came along).

Without further adieu, for my drawing this week, I present another drawing from my iPhone, and done in just a quick time. This is my daughter, smiling and posing. I used a photo as a reference, and only gave myself about 10 minutes (if that) to do this drawing. I tried to keep it light and gesture drawing style.

My typical preferences tend toward sci-fi and fantasy genres but I love a good drama or comedy. Reading the blogs of fellow Lost fans over the years has motivated me to finally write my own.

    Goodness me. It’s gorgeous! You capture her delightful nature perfectly 🙂 Thank you for sharing.

    P.S. What iPhone software? Maybe I can doodle for a few hours and make something a tenth as good 🙂

  2. I use an app called Brushes. It hasn’t been updated in a long long while, but it’s really easy to use. I have Sketchbook Pro also (which I think is also available via the Mac app store in a free version) but it doesn’t work the way I think like Brushes does.

    You can find it here

    They have both an iPhone ($4.99) and an iPad ($7.99) version. I have both.

  3. Love this one! I think that drawings of the kids are so sweet and important..this is inspirational to me..I used to draw mine when they were babies…asleep…but time is slipping away…time for more drawings 🙂

  4. Pick up your pencil and draw those kids. 🙂 I need to tell myself to do it more often too. The baby years are already gone.
