Week Forty-Eight

Making art daily isn’t about making 365 perfectly polished pieces of work. It’s not about making “good” art; it’s not even about making finished art.

It’s about enduring to the point where you’ve tried everything that feels comfortable, and you force yourself to go somewhere new and different. It’s about the attempts, not the outcomes. It’s showing up every day and saying, “I don’t know how to do this, but I’m gonna try.” It’s for all that time spent failing for that one moment where it clicks. It’s about allowing yourself to try everything, to lower the stakes because if this doesn’t work out, tomorrow is another day. It’s about sticking with it because you don’t see change unless you’re able to look far back into the past.

What to Do

  • How long have you been making art regularly? Think back to what things looked like when you got started. Think back on those moments where something new you tried lit up your brain. Think back on your “why”, that reason that keeps you going.
  • Remind yourself that you have come so far and you are capable of so much. Keep going, you got this!

November Prompts


One more week of drawing environments! Thus far in November, we’ve focsused on landscapes, primarily drawing natural environments without anything man-made. This week we are illustrating developed land. So you’ll be drawing structures that are not organic: think hard lines and angles. Paying closer attention to proportion might help you out in your artwork this week. See my perspective tutorial below to see how a handy Procreate feature can help you out!

Mon: farmland – sketch
Tue: farmland – final art

TUTORIAL: Using Procreate's Perspective Guide

Perspective depicts the visual effect that objects get smaller as they get further away. This is seen very obviously on man-made structures like roads and buildings. Read the post below to learn about Procreate’s perspective Drawing Guide can assist you in depicting accurate perspective in your artwork.
