Weekly Art Challenge - Fox

When we first met, Ben and I started a weekly art challenge that ended after around six weeks - 
hey commitment is hard :p 

Recently, we've both been going through art slumps so we decided to bring back the art challenge as a fun way for us to make art and also (just quietly from me) to stay connected whilst we're apart. I got to pick the first weeks theme, which no doubt was going to be something cute - meet Mr. fennec fox below!

And here what I ended up creating - I initially sketched him, thinking I'd work more on him over the week but got super excited, whipped out my paints and finished him in a few hours

It's nice to be drawing again!

    1. I did look into those monthly photography challenges, I don't know if I could commit though, but I think they'd be a great way at pushing you creatively :)
