I have posted about a few of my creations, the most recent being HERE. It is a wonderful group, with members from all over the world. For each day, we are given a prompt. To follow the prompts is completely optional, but for some of us, we look forward to each day's prompt, and follow them religiously. I am one of them.
The prompt for Sunday, the 10th, was "friend", followed by "hug" yesterday, the 11th. When doing my daily prompt drawings, not having much, if any, imagination, I consult reference photos, usually not my own.
For Sunday's prompt of "friend", I decided to really challenge myself and draw from my head. Often drawing from my imagination is a mistake, as the result is usually fairly kindergarten-ish. I've been having so much fun drawing animals lately that I decided that bears can be friends with each other. Right? So, I decided to draw this little pair without reference photos. Courageous, eh?
The following drawing is my depiction of "friends".
When Monday's prompt came up as "hug", I thought I would REALLY challenge myself and work with the same two little bears from the previous day. I wasn't even confident that I could actually do this.
This is what I came up with:
Why did I use them in today's post? I thought these two illustrations would be perfect to evoke loving feelings for Valentine's Day, just two days away.
My dream for those of us in the US for Valentine's Day -- and EVERY day! -- is that we can start to show more love, caring, kindness and respect for one another, no matter if we are friends or not.
WHAT'S VALENTINE'S DAY WITHOUT A HEART OF SOME SORT??
So, for Valentine's Day, here is a heart for you:
This particular heart was shown in THIS POST, in case you are interested in discovering how it was actually created. I thought it would be nice for the Valentine's season.
HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!
