Thanks again Corvus cornix

361-365

Omani owl; Mew gull; Chimpanzee; Black-throated diver; Canada goose

And this completes a whole year of daily sketches!

I have to conclude that I'm very pleased with the progress, and with the fact that I put up with it for a whole year. Not all the sketches are good, but the good ones became more and more regular. I definitely wouldn't have been able to draw some of the latest ones at this time last year, at least not as fast. And now I can even make some decent wildlife sketches from life, which was a very scary thing for me to do before I started with this.

I think I will continue to draw every day for as long as I can, but will probably stop posting every single sketch here. I also need to stop posting because I'm putting way too many constraints on myself by using this format, and I really need to study some other things to improve my drawing.

Having said that, I will try to post some things I manage to do in a separate thread ;-)

Thank you everyone for the encouragement, and thanks for watching!

Now I'll go grab a beverage to celebrate

Cheers... /R

Fantastic Rodrigo,
I can personally see the transition from tentative to stronger lines and colour throughout. Well done mate and go and have a 'sherbet' (or beer as the rest of the world calls them) on me. Well done and i look forward to your posts and art elsewhere.
