December is almost here! And I am finally going to try to do a monthly challenge and actually try to follow through this time.
For those of you who are unfamiliar with Drawcember, the word is a combination of draw and December. It’s a drawing challenge where you have to draw something every day in the month of December. Some other monthly challenges similar to this are:
- Mermay: Draw a mermay every day in the month of May
- Junicorn: Draw a unicorn every day in the month of June
- Inktober: Draw something in ink or using lines in the month of October
I have attempted at some monthly challenges in the past but I’ve only managed to follow for a few days.
So for this December, I’m going to try to draw something every day! And here’s my own rules I’ve made for myself, each drawing must have/ be:
- An object drawn realistically
- Creative or meaningful in some way
I wanted to continue practising my realism and at the same time, I want to try to be more creative. Most of my drawings are all from references and photographs where I try to draw them as closely as the object as possible. I want to use this challenge to force myself to be more creative in my drawing.
Feel free to follow my Instagram for daily posts! I will also be posting weekly updates on my blog as well. You are also welcome to follow along or make your own rules and join the Drawcemeber challenge!
