This is my first try at Jake Parkers 8 Minute Drawing Challenge (#8minutedraw) and it goes like this:
- Pick a subject, could be anything. Like a dog, or a truck, or a helicopter, or a self portrait, or a tree house. I drew a tank this time.
Grab a sheet of paper and divide it into 6 even sections.
Click play on this 8 minute timer video: http://youtu.be/jsrQ6Iynx4w and when the timer starts you have 4 minutes to draw your subject in one of the sections.
When it beeps again you start another drawing in the second section, but this time you only have 2 minutes to draw it.
Then do it in 1 minute. Then 30 seconds. Then 15 seconds. And finally 5 seconds.
Now compare your drawings.
Post it online with the hashtag #8minutedraw
For my first attempt I went with drawing a dog. I really enjoyed the challenge and plan to make this a part of my daily drawing routine going forward.
