Week forty-four

If you were participating in Making Art Everyday back in March, you might remember experimenting with different art styles and my article, 30 Art Styles to Try in Procreate. One artist, Danna Feintuch, decided to do all 30 art styles using bananas as her subject, and I’m excited to share her series with you!

If you are ever feeling stuck in a rut creatively, experimenting with style is a fantastic way to get you out of it. If you were to draw something in 30 different art styles, what would you draw?

What to Do

  • Who do you have in your lilfe  that you  can connect with about creative things? Give that person a call and catch up!

This week, I'll be live Friday Oct 30, at 10:00 am PDT

Let’s get a little moody! In this week’s live tutorial, I’ll be drawing a glowing candle. The gentle glow of candlelight can add some serious ambiance to your illustrations. I hope you’ll join and draw along with me!

The best place to catch the live stream is on the Bardot Brush YouTube Channel. Don’t forget: You can watch or re-watch the previous livestreams on my tutorials page on Bardot Brush!

October Prompts

genres + perspectives

October would not be complete without some spooky scary stuff! As we head into Halloween, our last genre of the month is Horror.

Halloween is probably my favorite holiday, though I’m not actually a big fan of the spooky stuff. I love Halloween because you get to see people express their interests and personalities through their costumes choices! People get creative and show what kind of things they are into. Plus, its an opportunity to make costumes! Every year our family goes crazy with the costumes and creates a fun family theme. I’ve been sharing this year’s costume-making process in my Instagram stories. This year we are all going as Mario characters, inspired by our familial love of Mario and his crew!

Remember, our “plus” challenge for the month is to try to compose your illustrations with unique perspectives.  Here’s the Pinterest board I made to inspire you:
