As I work to grow my illustration business, I'm working to grow my illustration skill, too. I've spent the past few months drawing from life to help improve my abilities, but I started to find it a bit limiting. Whenever I couldn't find an image that matched my ideas, I'd feel I had hit a bit of a block.
So I decided to change up my regular practice. Each month, I'm choosing a different theme for daily drawing, and this month's theme is "Impossible". As long as it's something I can't draw from life, it counts. This is forcing me to be a bit more adventurous with my illustration, and it's making me realize that all that life drawing has really improved my ability to draw from memory and imagination.
So far, these two images are my favorite impossible drawings. Cathulhu and a slug jouster.
