About This Class

Welcome to daily drawing for 2020!

Just by looking at this class, you are on your way to cultivating a daily drawing practice!

“The secret to getting ahead is getting started.” Mark Twain

A bit about me, your drawing cheerleader and guide:

My name is Emily and one day I made it a goal to draw daily for one whole year. That was three years ago. And I still draw every day.

It has improved my skills immensely. I’m still not an amazing artist (you might even be better than me!) but I do have the drive and determination to not give up. 

People ask all the time how to maintain a daily drawing practice amidst real life. I’m a mom to three small boys, I work, I cook dinner every night, I juggle all the balls mamas have to juggle, and still find a moment each day to draw. I know real life, and I’d like to give you guidance, encouragement, and a few principles on how you can make it work for your life too. 

“The man who moves a mountain begins by carrying away small stones.”– Confucius

Each month I’ll provide you with a small workbook with practice sheets, a schedule of prompts for that month, positive quote art, and a video each day where you can draw with me. 

I also have set up a Facebook group called Daily Drawing 2020 where we can post together and encourage each other as artists (good vibes only- trolls will be kicked back under the bridge) 

Also on Instagram, you can post with the hashtag #drawingdaily2020 and look for fellow artists also following along in the class. 

I’m so happy you want to take these first steps with me!

Let’s get started!

1. November Intro: Hello, my name is Emily. And this year I've been teaching a series of classes about drawing daily. Having energy daily drying practice is so great because not only do you get to improve your drawing skills, but you also get that daily bit of creativity. And so I've been doing this every month, this year, and now we're all the way to November. But if you're just starting out now, that's great. I'm so glad to have you here. Basically in the class. I just have daily prompts for us. And we use that to dedicate ourselves, to draw every day following those prompts this month. I don't know about you, but I'm feeling a bit on wanderlust because of just quarantine and everything. And so I would love to travel and that's not possible. So I have made it a theme of around the world. So I have a whole list of different countries. But what's neat about this theme is that you could draw food or flowers or trees from that country. Or if you'd like drunk people, you could draw the wakeful dress or famous people from that country. Or if you're into landscapes, you can take a landscape or a famous place that's in that country and draw that. There are so many different ways you can take these prompts and there's no wrong way to do it. And so hopefully that will encourage you to draw daily. And we want to have that daily practice that improves your drawing skills. So if you'd like to join me, let's get started. I have a new video every day and we have a great Facebook group where we just keep each other accountable and help each other out to keep drawing daily. I am so excited to have you here. And let's get started. 2. What You Need and Tips: Hey, so I just wanted to talk about what we need for this class before we get started. Obviously, you can use any kind of dry and medium to do a day they drawing practice. But I'm going to let you know what I'm using so that it's really easy to fall along. I'm using an iPad. And on my iPad I am using the app. App procreate is probably the best drawing painting app for the iPad. And it's just really intuitive and many, many artists use it for digital work. And then I'm also using the Apple pencil. Again. Obviously you can use any tablet and stylists that works for you, but this is what I'm easy. And then I also have prepared worksheets and inspirational art pieces that are all in the Resources tab here on skill share. And I would love for you to dive into those. The the worksheets we will use one each week and they're there for you to either download striated, procreate, or download just as the document and printed off, whatever way you're more comfortable using it. Go for it. And inspirational I is just like a quote to get you pumped and motivated and you can put it as a background on your phone or your iPad or hanging up on your wall so that you remember, this is what you're doing. You're starting this daily practice. And then last, you just need determination, like seriously, you can just do this. You can. And I believe in you and together we'll make this daily practice happens so that you can improve. And yeah, I'm really excited to see you in the group. I also have a few tips for you here. The first is to set a daily reminder. So whether that's an alarm on your phone or a note to yourself, a Post-It stuck-up where you see it every day, but set yourself a daily reminder to draw and try to make it a consistent time to draw every day. Because if you're drawing at that same time, your brain is instilling Ghana's start picking up on that pattern and you're going to want to draw it that time. You're going to be thinking about drawing them. But at that time all day, I draw at night between my kids bedtime and my bedtime. And sometimes it doesn't leave a lot of time, but all day long I'm thinking about and it gets me really pumped for that moment where I get myself to be creative and to really get into it. So I just encourage you to really find that specific time and stick to it so that you can get in the rhythm of it. And then my second tip is to check off your accomplishments because as you see those little checkboxes fill up, man, you will just, you'll just gain more confidence in yourself and in your practice. And I've included a checklist of items here in the resources. So make sure you get that and whether you put it in your procreate or you print it off so you can check it off that you did that day's drying. I say go for it. And then law class. I want you to not worry about messing up and just start. I know those mental blocks that gets you in your life, but I'm not good enough, but I can't do this. Yeah, you can. And again, I'm going to say there's probably millions of times, but we're not drawing masterpieces daily. We are just drawing daily. It can be a sketch. It can be a doodle. It can be something that you're really passionate about anyone to spend more time on. Like it can be anywhere in between that you were just getting yourself in the habit of drawing daily because you wanna see yourself Grove and I will see you go to. So I'm really excited. Those are my tips and I can't wait to see you in this class. Thanks. 3. November 1: 1 Point Perspective: Welcome to November. Now those of you that have been taking these classes of shear, you know that once a week I like to do like drawing lesson basically, instead of doing a prompt, we work on our drawing skills because part of the drying daily is to improve those skills. And that's usually one of our goals as we're stepping into this. So for this month, I'm talking all about perspective. We haven't covered it yet. And so I thought let's get it in before the end of the year, right? And it's so important withdrawing, gain perspective on things. So we'll just do some really fun exercises once a week on perspective. And this week we are talking about one-point perspective. So what you're gonna wanna do is you wanna grab a Canvas. I just have a regular square one. Really the size of it doesnt matter because this is just an exercise and there's no wrong way to do this. And then you can just grab your favorite brush. It doesn't have to be anything fancy. Just whatever you think is gonna work best for you drawing. And we're gonna start out with a perspective. So we're gonna draw our horizon line. That's going to be a first thing. Now, thing you really want to know for this is that when you hold down your pencil, you get that perfectly straight line. And that's what we're going to need a lot of to do this. Now for one-point perspective, what that basically means is it has 1.1 vanishing point that all the objects are going towards. So we're going to just pick a random point, doesn't have to be directly in the center. But we're gonna make that our vanishing point. And from everything, everything will vanish to that point in the image. And then we're going to go right on top of that and just make a bunch of really straight lines. They don't have to be perfectly spaced apart. You don't have to have the same number of lines all around. We're basically just going from our vanishing point to the edge of the page. And this is going to help guide us as we are doing our perspective drives. And this is also how you would do it. If you had just paper, you would just grab a ruler and do it this way. There is in the drawing guide in Canvas. You can put perspective on it. And you can, you tap to create a vanishing point and then everything would come from there. And that works great. I wanted to show you how to do it with just by hand. But this is a really quick way because those lines, this is exactly what we're creating. Those lines are going straight to that vanishing point and you can draw everything off of that. But I'm not going to do that because I wanted to show you how to do it from here. So I'm just kinda create my lines. All the way around from my vanishing point. Again, they know to be perfectly spaced. They don't want to be even. They just all have to go to the same point. Alright, so now I've got my lines, they're all go into this, this vanishing point. I'm going to open a new layer and I'm gonna change my color to like a really vibrant colors that you can see really well what we're doing here. And I am just going to make a bunch of rectangles. And you can even use the shape tool to create exact rectangles. You just draw a general rectangle and snap it to a shape and that shape rectangle. And I have a rectangle there. There's no wrong place to put it. And we'll just draw the perspective from each one. All right, I'm not going to do too many because I want us to have plenty of time to get this sorted. So I'm even then bring the opacity down on my vanishing point and just make it a lot easier. And then what we're gonna do is we're going to make these 3D objects no longer are they flat rectangles. Now we want them to be 3D objects. Well, we need them to vanish. So the point, so what you're gonna do is you're going to follow the lines you've created and make your objects have that third dimension. That follows back to that bashing point. And if you need to go back to your vanishing point layer and add another line, because this one is kind of in-between lines. So it's like, oh, well, I can't quite see where it belongs. Then. Yes, you need to go add and more alliance. But everything to this side of your vanishing point will have, you will have the top, front and side. Everything on this side, you'll have top, top and front. And then this side, everything below the line will have a chalk and everything above. So video this one above where I see the underside of it. And sometimes you get it wrong. That's why digital drawing. So nice. I have been drawing for quite awhile and I still get perspective wrong all the time. Because sometimes my eyes went and say, oh, this is how it's done when in reality, these guides really help you find that the actual lines that they should follow. And if you're still having trouble visualizing that, you can even take it further. And so if you wanted this line, you could make it go all the way to here and make this go all the way to here. And so then you can see how your lines for your box. You would put right on top of that. And you can see how it connects. So if you're at an even more trouble visualizing it, feel free to make it easier for yourself. That's what this whole left precise about. And then we can even go in and shade it, just make it a little easier visually. Now I go. So one plane perspective is very easy to play around with it, very easy to create things. And then you can even turn these into other objects. You know, this could be, this could be important here. You got here cover of your book and your pages, and then you're back cover of your book. And so you can even take a step further and make these actual objects and their, their book. So if you wanted to take that step forward or if you just want to keep playing around with different shapes, different 3D shapes and making them back to this 1. It's a very useful thing, very useful tool if you're ever stuck with something that you're trying to draw, I would definitely grab up the one-point perspective tool, especially the drawing guide that's right here, appropriate, super-easy to use. Anyway. I hope that was a really neat lesson. Really easy to follow along. And I hope you keep dry daily and I'll see you tomorrow. Bye. 4. November 2: France: Welcome back friends. Today we're starting our little trip around the world with our different countries. And our first one on the list is France. So basically what I did is I just went and did some searches about France. I didn't national monuments. I did National Animal, national flower, which there's is the iris, which is represented by the Florida lease. And then also when I got the chicken, it had the flag, which is great, so I can use those colors. And then I've got the shape of the map. And I think what's so great about these prompts is really, you can take it any way you want. You can draw a place that you know about you want to visit or you did visit. You can draw an animal or a flower. You can even just draw their flag. Whatever you feel like you want to incorporate into this prompt. So it's kind of opened. But at the same time it gives you a direction because we're talking about traveling and all that. So yeah, I just thought those fun. I am actually going to start with the map and here and do the outline for country. And then I think I might add some of those elements inside the map and make it kind of like one of those maps that have the little bits of it and see where that takes me. So I'm just going to start on new layer here. And hopefully as I go, this will inspire you on what you want to make your France picture about. So here I go with just a sketch of my map. Alright, so I've got my map there, and now I'm going to go to the next layer. And for this one I'm actually going to go to canvas here in actions and turn on my drawing guy. And I'm just gonna make that grid says look bigger because I am going to write the word France and I want to have some aligns for that. So I'm going to grab a color here and I just have the monoline brush here from the calligraphy area and you really can use whatever one you want. And I'm just using the lines here as a guide. I think I keep most of my pictures pre similar, so I want to keep it pretty simple as far as writing goes. Alright, so for France I'm going to create a cookie Mask, and I'm just going to add the color, the flag here on France. And it has blue and then white in the center. So now I have the country name. And then I'm gonna go to my inspiration. And I'm gonna look at each of those. And I think what I'm gonna do is just kinda take because sketchy pencil and just kinda outline these on new layers. I just did that on the cookie myths, helpful on a new layer. And then I can just have outlines of these different elements that represent France. So there's my check-in. And now I add the Eiffel Tower. And then I'll add in the iris. There we go. It's really simple and the way I did it, but hopefully you got some ideas of how you would wanna do. But I've got the colors, got so elements, and I've got the shape of France. And so I think it represents it well. And it could be a fun little series of places I want to travel too. So I hope you enjoyed that. I'm so glad you're here drying daily for the month of November and I will see you tomorrow. 5. November 3: Egypt: Welcome back friends. Today we're taking a trip to Egypt. And I grabbed a little bit of inspiration here I've got our map. And their national animal is this eagle and the lotus flowers, their national flower. And then some national monuments. I've got the Sphinx and the pyramids. And so I'm going to trace this map to start with and then move on from there. I went back and I looked at yesterdays and I founded to look a little boring. And so today I decided I'm going to add in the C's here, especially since the Mediterranean Sea and the Red Sea in the river here are just, the Nile River are just really important parts of Egypt. So I'm going to add those in. I might go back to France and the other day and add some more stuff. And because I just felt like it was kinda boring and didn't really give off enough. That's just part of drawing dailies. You kinda learn what you do like and what you don't like, and what you want to add to your images. So yeah, I think getting in the water to here will help a lot today. And maybe I'll finds mass I can add to it as well as I go along. That adds a bit more to my image and maybe I'll go in and even had some and a wave so the water. And then maybe I'll even add some wavy lines to the desert here. Maybe I'll wait to add more those to see where my image is end up going. Alright, so next I want to write the name out. So I'm gonna put that drawing guide back on Canvas. Drawing died. And I'll just leave it small. I can probably work with that. And I'm going to get a new layer so I can write Egypt. Alright. And have the flag of Egypt here. And so I'm going to try and color my words are the same color. So I'll grab up that red and put a clipping mask above my letters here. And then they have an eagle like buried here. And I don't know if I can get the exactly, can kinda get the general. This can be P tiny on this. And then we go right in the center of the, what I have there, level ego, which is their national. But I think I'll still another eagle. So grab of my sketching pencil. Get a nice outline of this eagle. The eagle then. And then let's the lotus flower. Kinda like that happened on water. I think I'm, I leave that in that placement. And then I'm going to grab that Sphinx in the pyramids on a new layer here. Just a nice sketchy outline. And once again, this is not how you have to do is at all. I'm just kinda giving you ideas and hopefully you can take them and run with them however you want to draw these. But there are just so many options. You can do a whole landscape scene or whole monument or the animal for your favorite part of that country. All kinds of things to just dive right in and create. Even touched on food or anything. So like a favorite dish that represents a country, even knew that. So those desert lines can take up the space that I need for this, but I think I can just add him in around this. And I'll still like pretty cool and maybe I'll add a few more up here. She touches added a lot. I'll definitely have to go back to France and add a little more. And because I like that a lot better than I did yesterdays. And again, that's part of the journey. That's part of discovering what you love. And when you draw every day, that's what you learn. You learn about yourself, you learn about your art and you get better every day. So just keep trying daily and I will see you tomorrow. Bye. 6. November 4: Japan: Welcome back. And today we're traveling to Japan. So I did a little research and I grabbed their flag and the map of what it looks like. The bird is this pheasant and their national flower is a chrysanthemum, which they have on their Emperor's seal. But they're also really known for cherry blossom. So both kinda popped up when I was searching. So I might incorporate both will see small islands, so I may not be able fit both on their little c. And then of course I included this national monument, the shrine, because it's very iconic. So I'm going to get started with the map here and get that going and go from there. Alright. Now I'm gonna go on a layer. And the lettering, Belgium scrap of black because I always end up kind over it. And go ahead and throw on my drawing guys canvas drying that too so I can get those letters really straight, even. Yeah. Alright, and then go ahead and take up that drawing. And I can do as doing before where I added a cookie mask. And then I just colored it with the flag colors for this one. And then it has a red. Alright, and now I'm going to grab my inspiration images and start driving some of those. All right, so I've got the chrysanthemum CEO image. Hey, that looks pretty cool. I might even scattering a few of those around. It's kind of a pool shape. Next, comment and grab this. Okay. It's pretty neat to find a good spot for him to stay on board. I'm going to grab this monument. The shape is really iconically Japanese with the curves. So I think it will definitely help tell the story that we're trying to do in this image. And then let's see if that cherry tree would also be a good addition to this surface. It just Mendelssohn. So I did decide that I am like chrysanthemums, but I'm gonna make them small and just kind of placed them about here. Image interests. And so I'm just grabbing from the original one and duplicating and placing them around. They look good. Just to add those in, I might make them ONE same layer him. And then take my eraser and grab like a splatter brush and just lightly brush over them. Kind of the more part of the background. Unless the main focus. Yeah, I like that a little bit because you can see now they've got a little bit of a scratchy feeling like they're faded into the background. And our main focus are the items that we added. Overall, I really like how that one turned out. These are getting pretty fun to create. I hope you're enjoying these prompts as well. And remember there's no wrong way to do it. You can draw whatever comes to mind when you think of the prompt. So I'm just giving you ideas of what I think of. But yeah, there's no wrong way to draw every day. So keep doing it and I'll see you tomorrow. Bye. 7. November 5: Madagascar: Hello friends. Today we're traveling to the tiny island of Madagascar. It's an island just off the coast of Africa. And it's home to so much wildlife and really cool things. This is their national flower. I can't remember the name of it. But their national animal is the lemur, which is just perfect. And they're so q and I have their flag and the map. And then what they're known for is these baobab trees that are just huge and had been there for centuries. So yeah, I think this could be fun to draw this little island. I thought it would be kind of a fun challenge to such a tiny place. So I'm going to get started with tracing my map here and then go from there. I was thinking that since it is an island that I would put in just like a circle of water around it to indicate that it's an island. Had a little bit to our picture here to see. Now it kind of screams Island. And next time I'm going to and the words. So I'm going to actually pull up my map here so I can make sure I get the name correct because that's kind of important. And then I'll start a new layer with just some black and a nice line brush and throw on my drawing Guide to, to help me draw evenly. I've got my lettering Dan here and turn off my drawing guy. Let's see. I'm gonna make it fully fit. And then we're gonna get. Has killings of the flag. So it's why it over there in red and green. And we're going to add a clipping mask to lettering layer. And then pick a renowned lightened my island just some little bit so that he can read though better. Oh yeah, that works. All right. Now let's start adding some of our elements. We've got this cauliflower. So get a new layer here. And I'm just going to outline and just like I've been doing for the other one. And it's certainly not unique pebbles here, which is pretty fun. Flower there for now. And then, well see, that's where we want to in the end. Let's do our next one. Still this adorable leeway here. There we go. That's a cute little lemur there for their national and whoa. And in these trees. And then I think actually you leave shapes just because it's such a tropical island. Just to add to the feel and the background. Shapes inception the background of these two. Since I'm just three pictures on a theme color, I'm just kind of fade those in background a little bit. And I think that turned out quite good. We've got the name and different things that are above it, and then it's in the water. So it's an island. I hope that was fun for you to draw as well, and I hope you're enjoying these prompts. Keep drawing daily. I believe in you, you can do it. And I'll see you tomorrow. 8. November 6: Canada: Welcome back. Today we're taking a little trip to Canada. And I looked it up and got the map and the flag. And their national animal is Beaver, and their flour is a bunch berry. And then I'll grab the Niagara Falls too, because it's also a place that they're known for. And I've been to both sides and the candidate side is definitely the better side of Niagara Falls. So yeah, I'm going to get started drawing the map and then move on from there. Alright, there we go to permit to get all those islands, but we did it. And now I'm going to add a layer above it. And then I was thinking was doing that. I will probably add some little trees maybe because I'd been adding things in the background. And so I think some little trees, it will spread out between our other images. So I've got three separate trees here. And I'm just going to duplicate it. And then I'll just start bringing them around. Because I think I'm going to have some open space is just because Canvas so large. Different spots around the image. Alright, I'm just going to group those all together and I will be able to mess with them more and later. Now I'm going to go in and add the lettering. So I want to add my drawing new layer, get my impression, just get in black and I get one and does nice smooth monoline brushes and stir military. All right, so there's my lettering. And now I'm going to add a clipping mask to that one so that I can color it kind of flag. And I think I'm going to trace my flag here. So I'll make sure I get that belief right. Mlr worried about not making it look like a maple leaf. So I'm gonna start with that. So now I'm going to grab up that gun about color and where I want it. Let's do this little tracing them. The Niagara Falls. That's pretty easy to tell if that is not exactly where it is put over in this side of Canada. Over here, right? It does need a bit more trees, so I'm gonna grab some more. Alright, I've grouped all my trees together. And then I think I'll just take my eraser and simple splatter brush and just kind of fade them in the background a little bit. They're stamped on them, they're not so prominent. That turned out quite well. I hope you enjoyed that and I hope you keep drawing daily because then I'll see you tomorrow. Bye. 9. November 7: Germany: Welcome back friends. Today we are traveling to Germany. And so I found the map and the flag and their flowers, a corn flour, and their animal is a Black Eagle. And I know they have a lot of monuments and different things, but and I love that they have the castle that inspired dizzy and I just thought it would be fun jello castle and to kinda throwing that fairy tale bit. Yes, so I think it started on my map here, drawing on the new layer and move up. Alright, there's our map. I'm going to do a new layer for my letter. And many go to Canvas and add that drawing guide so I can get nice and straight and grab a nice smooth brush and go from there. All right, there's my lettering. And that seemed like a good spot. Maybe I'll move around later and we're going to add a clipping mask on top of it. So I can make it the flag. And then I'm just going to use my same smooth monoline brush. And you've got dark kill on the bottom and the middle. Black on top. That looks pretty good. We're going to start adding other elements here. So I'm gonna grab up this corn flour and I quite like the colors, so I can go grab that up to get you outline of EFT. We'll just move that over here. That then I'm going to draw this castle. That was quite a lot to draw up, but it turned out quite well. I think this place in town here. Alright, so trying to think of something to draw around. So I think I'll just draw some little amount of it's, I'm a new layer. I can just add them here and there will be directly where mountains are in German name fat, I think it's so an add to the effect. And then with that layer I will still do my race in just kinda fade into the background. So it's more part of the map and less pictures we drew on top. And I think that looks quite good, happy with because I think that was quite fun. I hope you enjoyed it well as well and keep dry dealing. And I'll see you at bar five. 10. November 8: Interior Perspective: Welcome back. So for our drawing daily class, I like to have little like drawing lessons that can takes a break from the prompts. And then we also get to improve our drawing skills. So this month we're looking at perspective just because we haven't covered it yet and it's so useful in so many different ways to have the perspective down of where objects belong and, and the angles that belongs and everything like that. It's very important for drawing lines and everything. So today we're looking at interior perspective. So I grabbed a nice interior scene. I look at an Splash.com and I just found this one. They're just royalty-free images and they're usually really beautiful. Choose something fairly simple because you're trying to make yourself like stress out over this. This is just an exercise to work on one-point perspective with a VAD vanishing point for an interior scene. So once you have your image and you're ready to go, you're gonna click on Actions, drawing guy and try that drawing guy on and edit it. And we're gonna go over here to perspective. And this allows you to create vanishing point. In fact, you can create several vanishing points, but we're just going to create one. So I'm just gonna tap here. And let me see if I can't make this quite dark for you guys, we will see. So you can see now the lines are running through my picture. So wherever I've drag this too, is where I'm declaring it, my vanishing point. And so that's where my image is according to what I can actually do is find a good line go off of. So like if I was gonna go off this table, I could drive it until that angle C right here. It may be hard to see here. The angle is coming right alongside that table. And so that means I have almost found my vanishing point of this image. So just play around with that until you find your vanishing point. Remember everything below the vanishing point you'll see above it and everything above the vanishing point you'll be able to see at the top of it. So that's a good thing to remember. Like if you had something up here, you would be able to see the top of it or sorry, the bottom of it and you would be able to see the top of this. So now that we've got our vanishing point, we're going to click done. I'm going to just bring down the opacity on this. You know, you can see my lines even better. And this will help me draw in my objects. So what I'm gonna do is I'm going to have a new layer on top. And I'm going to give myself plan, just grab a pencil. Give myself a line back here where my fluorine meets my wall, because that's a good start. And then what I'm gonna do is I'm going to add in my couch. Okay, so now I've got my couch trace. And what this does is it gives me a point of reference for my image. So I'm going to bring the opacity back up on my image. And then I'm just gonna make it something that I look at to add in the rest of the elements. So it's kinda like a tests. You're testing your knowledge of perspective and Object placement and relative to other things. So this is all just an exercise. It is perfectly fine to get it wrong. But C Now to add in this coffee table, I'm just following in my vanishing point lines. Destroying guy has already given me. And if I follow along with it, it matches up with the imagery, have way better than if I eyeballed it. And see it's also very useful for the legs underneath to match up. So I did try to keep this relatively simple picture, keep it easy. But you can see how even just the n table there matches up with the lines of the vanishing point. So it's really easy to follow along those lines and create this image that all has the same point. So here even with the rug on the floor, I can run parallel to that line and run parallel to this line. And then once I erase for the coffee table, is, there we go. We've got rug that matches up with the line. So if we take away drawing guide here, so you can see it better. You can see how everything matches up. And that's why I said fairly simple scene just so you can follow along really easily. You can definitely try more complex ones. You can try ones with more than one vanishing point, like if you had a corner or something like that. But yeah, it's a great exercise. You can test yourself by just finding the vanishing point on your image and then join all of it. Or you could just draw one object and try and draw all the objects around it like we did today. But either way, I think it's a great exercise and perspective that I hope you do too. I hope that's helpful. Keep drawing daily and I'll see you tomorrow. Bye. 11. November 9: India: Hello my friends. Today we're traveling to India and I've got the map here, and there's the flag and the flowers, the lotus flower. Of course, I grabbed up the Taj Mahal because that's iconic. And then their national animal is a Bengal tiger. And it was really cool when I looked it up, it said, because it shows unity through diversity, which I think is just a great sentiment over all. So, yeah, I'm going to start with my map here and on newly-formed scan, get the outline of it, and then move on from there. All right, so there's my map. Now, grab the new layer for my lettering to go to my canvas and drawing die and throw up that drawing guides. I can get my lettering nice and straight. Nice monoline brush and start with my lettering. Okay. Alright, taking off my drying guy. I've got mine lettering now. And I'm going to add a clipping mask above that so that I can get those flying colors. So we've got orange on the towel. And I've still got my monoline brush. And then we've got white, middle, green on the bottom. And then in the center of their flag they have this. We'll symbol. It's called the Dharma chakra hand. Actually, I'm going to just cut and paste so that I can put this in the center here. And I can turn on my drawing good and good edit drawing guide and go to symmetry, and then go to radio. And I'll be a lot easier to create this circle symbols. So say move it to the center here. There we go. One thing done, the opacity. So I draw on one side and the line follows all the way through. Drawing things that are the same. In a circular pattern. It's a lot easier to have the symmetry tool. The main reason I wanted to get this right not only to respect their flag, but also because I want to use this a few places around the map I think, oh, look kinda cool to have the wheel in the background like kinda represents a country as well. So I'll just duplicate that and bring it down to my flag. That's kinda some luck. And then I can also duplicate my original layer a few times and bringing those around and move those around later. And now let's go to our inspiration images. And let's draw that lotus flower. Punches and sketch it out. And let's see if that's the best spot for it. After we get our other images going. Let's do the Taj Mahal. And now I'm going to draw that tiger. I'm just figuring out where to place everything. So is this it's kind of fun to play around placing things. And now with all those wheels, I'm going to do what I've been doing. Just taking a splatter brush has just going in and connect, bring them out. So then they kind of look like they're kind of stamped on the map part. And they kind of fit right in. And there we go. There's my map of India. I think it's kind of fun and interesting. And I know I'm just doing like the highlights of every country. If I had more time, I would probably add in more elements. But it's kinda fun to just dive in and learn a little bit about a new country. So I hope you're enjoying the prompts and keep trying daily. You can do it and I will see you tomorrow. Bye. 12. November 10: Australia: Welcome back friends. Today we're travelling to Australia and I'm Pat map here. And then it should be no surprise that there are national animals, the kangaroo. And I chose the Sydney Opera House because as an iconic building there. And then their flour is the golden bottles. So and I bet their flag of course. So what I'm gonna do is grab a new layer and get started on my map. There is my map of Australia, and next I am going to do my lettering. So of course I'm gonna grab black and a monoline brash and then set up my drawing guides. I can gets nice straight. Let's dive right in my lettering, drying kDa. And now I'm going to add a clipping mask to that. And I'm going to do this fence with some stars. And then it also has the Union Jack Cohen act. Get all those in the right place meant. But I think that looks pretty good. I think I would go to my references here. Maybe adding this beautiful flower. Alright, so leave it over there and then see from there, those look quite cool. They're Andre opera house. Alright, now that I've got all my elements, I think I will draw a few of these stars. It's quite a cool shapes. And we're just going to add a few of those around my map here. And once again, I'm just making a recent brush. So then it kinda fav, sees into the math a little bit. And then the yellow quite isn't quite working for me. So let's see if we can't change that. So I'll go to hue saturation brightness and just brighten it up, see if that helps. Yeah, I think that's a little bit better. And now I can just take that color, goes the other layers and click select, and then fill them. And do it the same with this one, select and Finland. And now they're all the same colors. And I think that turned out to be a very bright fun math. And I hope you enjoyed that and keep trying daily. I will see you tomorrow. Bye. 13. November 11: Spain: Welcome back friends. Today we're traveling to Spain and I did love research again. And I've got their flag, their flowers, the red carnation there. National animal is the bowl. And this is there are they true? Triumph, triumph maybe. And it was built for world's fair. It's kind of like the one in Paris, but this one's in Barcelona. So I'm going to start with my map back here and then go from there. Alright, there's my map. And now I'm going to open a new layer, grab black and a nice monoline brash, and then my drawing guy. So I've got some nice lines and start my letters. Today's biomonitoring. So I'll tick off my drawing guide and then I'll just add a clipping mask on top of that layer and grab up my flag for reference. I have got red on the bottom, in red on the tough in the minute. And I think I might just because this whole thing I, we see. So I'm going to fit in over here. So might this do the basic colors of it? Alright, I did a really simplified version in there, but when you're far away, can define, tell the aircrafts on that design elements. Banker my add these little columns on either side. Now let's move on to some of the other elements are illustration here. To draw this bowl. Yeah, and there's a great book. Sealed straw, this carnation. Now let us draw this apart. Now I'm just gonna arrange everything. So this map, I would just draw a little red flags kinda representing the bullfighting book. Like my little extra around the map. And then I did the same thing I've been doing where I just can't make them look more like this stamped on the map. And actually change the color of this math. Let's mess around with the color. It's funny how much changing the color changes with the picture looks like. But I'm kind of find a nice happy medium ground here. I think that works well. Then that's everything else shine. And there we go. I hope you enjoyed making that and you're enjoying all these prompts keep dry and daily you can do it. I believe in you and I'll see you tomorrow. Bye. 14. November 12: Kenya: Welcome back friends today or a traveling to Kenya. I grabbed up the flag and their national flowers, the orchid and their national animal is the lion. And then this is a cool monument that it's for their independence and everything. So it's really cool statue they have in this gardens there. And I'm going to wrap up my map and start with that outline and then move up to there. Alright, I've got my map and now I'm going to put on that drawing so I can do my lettering and new layer, I'm grabbing up black and really smooth monoline brush do my lettering. And we can start with that. Alright, today's by lettering and I'll take off my drawing guy. And then I'll add a clipping mask about that. So I can start at a mind map collectors. And then there's this fun shape here and a center. So we'll just put it on our end here. The meaning and symbolism behind flakes is really such a neat thing. It's really been funded by now all these little facts about different countries. And now I'm going to start a new layer and had one of these things. Let's draw this line. And now I'll move on to this statue. And then let's add in their flower the Org kid. And then I was thinking, since they have a lot savannah areas and yeah, so far I type things, I would add in those trees. They look, they go up and then they have the little bits that can just stick out and they're really tall trees that you would see on the Savannah. So just thought I'd add a few of those to our map here. Now, I want to do the same thing I've been doing where I can make them look more like stamps. But my eraser here, they were too big and bulky, so I made them smaller. And I think that works really well. I think the map turned out pretty good. And I hope you're enjoying this and keep drying daily. 15. November 13: Thailand: Welcome back friends. Today we're traveling to Thailand and it's definitely somewhere I'd loved to visit. I'm so excited to do this one. There's their flag and the national flower. It's really golden in beautiful. This is a temple that's really old, but so cool and it looks so modern for how old it is, but it's a structure that's really well-known there. And then their national animals, the elephants. So that's what I found out about Thailand. I'm going to start with my map here and then go from there. All right, there's my map. And now I'm going to add a new layer with really smooth brush. And it took up my drawing. And now I'll make a cookie mask for that layer, and we'll do the flag colors. Let's start with some of the elements. I think I'll start with the elephant. Let's add another element of this temple, that template to spires. But let's add these flowers. And then we can arrange or things around, fits quite well. And then I thought for fun background element, I might just do sound. And those little boats, new type looking things that they have because they're so surrounded by water, they they do a lot of markets and stuff. So I thought that would be really simple shape for the backgrounds. And then also do the eraser splatter brush. So you can tell they're faded. That'll map of Thailand. I hope that was fun for you. And you're enjoying dry it all these different places around the world. Keep driving daily and I'll see you. 16. November 14: Mexico: Welcome back. Today we're traveling to Mexico. And here I grabbed off the map and their flag. And their national animal is the golden equal, which is on their flag and their flour is the Dalia. And then I chose this temple that's really ancient and I think it's one of the seven wonders of the world. So I thought that would be a good representation. You come Mexico. So I'm gonna get started with my map here. I can get that outline and then I can add on all those other elements I found. And I'm just going to turn on my drawing data. So I've got some nice straight lines on a new layer with a really smooth fresh, I'll add my lettering. Alright, let's take up our lettering will add a cookie mass above him. Conscious effort, the impression of the ego there in the center. So it's not exact. You can definitely tell that the colors of everything that's in there. On my other elements. On a new layer, I will draw this thallium. I think I'll leave it there. And that's, I think I'll work on this temple on a new layer. Next, I'm going to draw this ego. And I thought I will add an element of cactuses. So it just makes sense to have some character on our map of Mexico, contrast from Cuba. And then I'll just quickly blend them into the map of my research. And I hope you enjoyed that and keep dry Bailey and I will see you next time. 17. November 15: Atmospheric Perspective: Welcome back. Today we're going to do another one of those drawing lessons. So it's not a prompt. But this is really a nice loose exercise that's kinda fun. And then we'll be back to prompts tomorrow. So we've been working on perspective and today we're gonna talk about at most atmospheric perspective. And so what you're going to start by doing is just going to draw some blobs. You can draw it however you want. Wherever on the page do different sizes, different shapes. If you wanna do all circles, that's fine. If you want to have them be a certain shape. That's why embed, this is really easy. And all it's gonna do is help us focus on perspective. Alright, I've left some space because we are going to have a horizon line. So you might want to leave a little space at the top if you don't solve big deal. But the first thing we're gonna do is actually add a few that are overlapping. So maybe I'll erase some of this one and kind of overlapping here. Because that's going to help us with perspective to have some that are overlapping. And then maybe I'll hide one behind this one and just kind of play around with it. Just pretend like you have this pile of rocks and some are behind others. There's no wrong way to do this. All right, once you've got some overlapping, next, we're going to add that horizon line. So I'm going to add a layer below this. And we're gonna put the horizon line red and near the bottom of the very, very top boulder here. That'll work. And then I'm just gonna go in and erase it where it's overlapping these so that the boulders are in front of the horizon. And you can already see how that has shifted so that now we have some boulders that do look far away. But that's not enough because this still looks strange that you've got these ones. They still, you still have the perspective that they're going off into the horizon. So what atmospheric perspective is is that things that are closer to you are more intensely colored and whether that's black versus y, and it gets lighter as it goes back, or if it's like a bright color and then gets lighter and even more bluish as it gets further away and gets blurry. All of that gives you a perspective. And so what you're gonna do is I'm actually gonna go a layer underneath. And I'm going to start my boulders with a good intensely dark color. But as I come back to the back and we're going to have them be a lighter color. And then you want to work those colors in between. And now I'm just adding some shading on my boulders, make them more 3D objects. Because when you have perspective, you need that your 3D objects to be in the 3D space. And so ever say yellow shading to these guys. And you can already see how your eyes being pulled back and you're like, okay, these are the boulders in front and those are the ones way back there. And then I'll just clean up my edges so it's easier to tell. All right, so now you can see that that perspective is being forced, that these are the boulders in front and these are the militia and back. And then to enhance that even further, you can add another layer and that is the ground. And so let's say we have a really deep green here in the front. And what we're gonna do is we're just gonna fade it back as we go. Almost saturating are green. And so you can see how that pulls it even further. And then if I add shadows again, making our 3D objects in a 3D space, you force that perspective. That these are the front ones and the backwards. So like I said, it's just a really simple exercise. There's no wrong way to do it. And it's just something that's fun to play with. And you can do that with just about any object that you want to be in the way that way if you were doing like a road towards the back, it could get a could fade away, be less intense and colored. It wouldn't necessarily go to white because a black road is black hole. You see it. But like the yellows and the lines of the road, the green grass around the road, that would be less intense. So it's a force that perspective. And yet it's just a fun exercise to get you thinking about what belongs in threatened when it goes and back and what qualities each object of where its placed has. So I hope you enjoyed that and I want you to keep dry and daily keep pushing at it. You are doing awesome and I'm so proud of you. And I'll see you tomorrow. Bye. 18. November 16: Italy: Welcome back friends. Today we're traveling to Italy and I've got my map. And their food. And their national flower is the white lily. And then I've got the Tower of Pisa and their national animals, a wolf. So I'm gonna start with my math and then move on from there. I'm going to add a new layer for my lettering and grab my drawing canvas there to have nice straight line. And then with just a slick monoline brush, I'm gonna start my lot. Take off that drawing and I might move them somewhere else. We'll see. Alright, let's add a clipping mask to that. And on that clay mask will do the coloring. Alright. And now I'm going to start on some of these objects. This lily here. We'll just move it down there and the next lesson, draw the Tower of Pisa. Let's draw the wolf. So we've got all of those elements. And then I thought it would be fun to actually add little pastas and spread of map here. So I'm just going to draw some little pluses on a new layer. There we go and decide to vary my pasta on the bed. And then I'm just gonna get my splatter brush racer. Kinda make them fade a little bit into the background. And you can see how their faded now. And then they would go, there's a cool map of Italy. I hope those fun. Keep doing the prompts, keep drawing daily and I'll see you tomorrow. Bye. 19. November 17: Jamaica: Welcome back. Today we're going to Jamaica. And I found a bunch different things. Grab their map and their flag. And this is their bird. He's kinda really cool, swoopy tail. And this is the purple flower. And then they have this monument, I guess they have a national park that has a bunch of statues in this one. But the cool shapes or if I'd added in. So I'm going to get started with our map here and then go from here. Alright, so there's our map and now I've lettering. My drawing Guide to catch great lettering. Super smooth brush, and here we go. All right, we'll take up in the middle. Next, we'll add the mask to the close of the flag on clipping mask. Start on some of these very lovely extra bed. Pan, these flowers. So that's a quite lovely friend. Now, let's add this new layer, this sculpture. As a nice background firm. We could add some little palm trees. I will just pay those in the background little bit. And there we go. There's our map of Jamaica. I hope that was fun for you and keep doing the prompts, keep showing up daily. I'm so proud of you for drawing this phone and I will see you tomorrow. Bye. 20. November 18: Brazil: Welcome back. Today we're traveling to Brazil. And I grabbed off the map and their flag, and this is their flower to take orchid and their national animals, the jaguar. And then of course I've got the Redeemer statue that they're super famous for because it's Giant and you can see it for miles. So yeah, I'm going to start here on my map and then move on from there. I've got my map. So now I'm going to try and guide on on a new layer. I will start my lettering. Okay. I've got my lettering, so I'll take my triangle and then clipping mask about that so that I can do the flag. Alright. Now, I'm going to start adding into these other elements. I think I'll start with these flowers. Alright, thanks bye flower. Right there for now, and we'll see what fits best. Work on this statute and a new layer. Right, is my lovely statue to that Jaguar. Okay. Alright, thanks Brian. Jaguar. Spend a good placement for all of v is since it is largely rain forest, I would do a bunch of those big rain forests you type we use everywhere. All right. There's all my leaves and then I'm just hello, faded into the background. We see how that works. And let more part of my wrath. And there we go. There's a lovely picture of Brazil. I hope you enjoyed that. Keep trying daily and I'll see you tomorrow. Bye. 21. November 19: Turkey: Welcome friends. Today we're traveling to Turkey. And I looked up their map and this is their flag. And their national animal is the gray wolf. And believe it or not, tulips come from Central Asia, Turkey, and not the Netherlands than I've had lunch just made them popular. Then here is the Blue Mosque, very well-known building there in Turkey. So I'm gonna get started with my map back here on a new layer, I will just grab up the outline ahead, move on from there. Okay, and there's my map. Now it's time to do some lettering on a new layer. I'll do my lettering and then add on my drawing guide for some straight lines. Smooth brush for that lettering and get started. There's my lettering, turn-off clipping mask on top of it. And the flag on that. They asked my flag on top of my letters. And now I will try to draw some of these extra elements. I think I'll start with the wolf down here. All right, and just the color of my map because my drives were in showing up and I thought that would be the best solution. So I'm going to try and draw this mosque on a new layer, remove it up here, and then drop. And then I thought for the background for map, I will just draw some hills and mountains because it's actually quite a hilly areas. Is my map of Turkey. I think it turned out quite good. I hope you enjoyed that. Keep drying daily and I will see you tomorrow. 22. November 20: United Kingdom: Welcome back. Today we are traveling to the UK. I kind of lumped it all together. But if you just want to choose England or Scotland. And for this one I think I'll even throw in Ireland, even though it's not part of the UK. Just because they're all here together on this map. And yes, you can choose any part, all of them. Whatever you want to do. I'm going to start here with my map and then go from there. All right, thanks by Mab and combine them with Northern Ireland, but I just wanna get everybody on here. So I'm going to start with England for my lettering. And I'm just going to nearly mentoring guy and we'll go from there. And I had Wales, Scotland, and then we'll add Ireland. So I'll remove my drawing. I've got my letters for each one and lift up a little bit about each one. So here for Scotland. Their flag is blue and white one, and their flour is a fissile, and then their animal is a unicorn. So I think I'll start with could be mask before their 5G pen. Then I think I started drying their unicorn. And then also draw they're sessile. Let's add these to our map. And I just felt those liaise with the darker blue because it wasn't showing up on our map here. And so I'm just going to group all those getters so I know them. And then here for our next one, England has a lion and this is their flag and they were rows. So let's start by adding the mask. All right, and now I'll just start drawing. And then also they're lying. Okay, so my video cut out while I was drawing this line. So I actually went on and drew a couple of things without realizing my video had stopped. So I went and I drew whales. And for that they're animals, the wet Red Dragon, and they've been dandy lion or not Daniel, I adapted L. And then I also drew Ireland and their animal is the red deer and the flowering Shamrock. I did try to add Northern Ireland to this, but they don't have an animal and they don't have a flag, they just use the UK flag. So it's kind of hard. So I just thought I'd throw these all together even though I know Ireland's not really part of the UK. So don't bat me. Yeah. I think it turned out really well though, because it's simply gives you a little bit of each area and it's kind of fun and colorful. Alright, I hope you enjoyed that and I will see you tomorrow. Bye. 23. November 21: Costa Rica: Welcome back friends. Today we're traveling to Costa Rica. And I think it would be quite a fun one. Animal national annual is the white-tailed deer. And this beautiful purple flower is their national flower. And I've got their flag. And then they're really known for volcanoes and like the rain forest. And so I thought I'd. So let's start off with this map. Then move on from there. All right, there's our map, so must go on the lettering on a new line. There's my lettering done and now the mosque and the flag color. All right. There's my flag on my own lettering. Let's add in those other elements. So I think I'll start with that. Next. I'll do that. Get this volcano and probably some of that force down there. Now I'm just arranging my elements. And I just start into my map a little bit to the last bit, the element on my map that just adds to it. I was just going to draw some coffee beans cause they're known for their coffee. So I just have a noun, just scattered unease about just kind of fade them into the math a little bit. There's a lovely little map of Costa Rica. I hope you enjoyed that and keep trying daily and I'll see you. 24. November 22: 2 Point Perspective: Welcome back. Today we're doing a little bit of a drawing lesson and we're going to jump into 2 perspective once we have been talking about perspective and we did a lot of one-point perspective. So let's shrimp into 2 perspective because that's also a very useful thing when you're trying to draw places, even people, and objects of all sorts. So the nice thing about procreate is you can go into canvas, drawing guide and then edit the drawing game. And you go to perspective down here. And you tap to create a vanishing point. So you can tap right here. And then I can tap on another, on that same line to create a second vanishing point. O and try and make these nice and dark so you guys can see him go. And so you can create two vanishing points. Now you can do this just the same way with just pencil and paper. You just create two points and you just draw lines, usually with a ruler straight back to that point, all the way to the horizon line. But this is just a guy that helps you, which is super useful for exercises like this. And so next, I'm just going to grab a pencil here. And we're just going to draw some squares. So we're going to use the lines we already have down here to jump or squares off of. And we'll just put a few in different places to give ourselves different options for rendering them here. And then we'll take each of our boxes. And what you do is you just follow the lines that you've given. So I have this box. And so if I want to turn it into an actual cube, I follow the lines that are already there, given to me by the vanishing point lines, the drawing guide. And then I just line it all up. And it's really useful in procreate to be able to hold and gather streetlights. And they would go and I can even do it so you can see through the box. Can and I had to double check that was parallel to that line thing go. And so this is just a great exercise to really get your brain in where it needs to be. See, I had to fix this one. Say had eyeballed where the bottom core, Azure B. And it turns out it lines up there. So now you can see how I have my box there. And then if I go to another one here, this one I can already tell them to fix because I screwed up the top of it. So we'll just start with my two sideline. So the top is parallel to that line. And then we'll make another parallel line for it. And we'll just keep doing that and following our perspective grid here. And there I have just a box sitting out there. And one thing we talked about the last time we did perspective is we talked about how if they're below the horizon line, you see the tops of them. So if I do a square up here, we're gonna see the bottom of it because we're above the horizon line. See and I'm parallel. And then we see at the bottom of that box and we could even see the inside like it was pain dumped out. And we've talked about this so many times, withdrawing daily, that there's absolutely no reason for you to be amazingly perfect app perspective if you haven't really practiced it. And this is just like anything else, it's not going to come naturally to you. This is one of those things that you have to do exercises for. I mess up perspective all the time and I have to pull out the lines because I just can't eyeball it correctly and that's just because I don't do it enough. If your job was only drawing perspective cubes, then yeah, you probably would get pretty good at it eventually, but that's not really a job that a lot of people have. So like, don't be hurt yourself if you mess up these perspective cubes. This is an exercise and the point of exercises to get better at something. And we're also making sure that things aren't getting further away from us, which we talked about with the mesenteric perspective. They are getting smaller. And if they were shaded, they would be blurred. So you can see the back of this box here is getting teeny tiny, disappearing into the background. And then you can also take these cubes. And I'll just bring down the opacity and you can make shapes within them. So if I was to make a chess piece here, thank you. Uh, sitting on and forward, then I would pay attention to the perspective rules that I've already drawn out. And so I would know that this is a sign, so this will get shading and then this is also a side. And then this would be my fruit paste facing, so that would be my brightest highlights. So yeah, all of that would be used to navigate how to do non box objects, which is important because you're not always drawing perspective for boxes. So that's also a way you can use this exercise and try to draw different objects within the perspective within your boxes. And yeah, this, this is a great exercise. I hope you enjoyed it and I hope it helps you. Keep join daily and I will see you tomorrow. Bye. 25. November 23: South Africa: Hello friends, welcome back. Today we are traveling to South Africa and I found their map here and there's their flag. Their flour is called the king protease, and it's really kind of a cool flower. There are national animal is the spring book, little antelope type creature here. And then tabletop mountain is a really famous mountain there and spoke to be one of the oldest mountains. So that's what I'm going to add to our math. But first, I've got to do my outline of my map and then move on from there. Alright, I've got my map and now on a new layer on my lettering. So grab my drawing guide so they're nice and straight. Right? And now we'll add a cookie mask on top, in fact, to add our flag, alright, lettering on it. And these other elements. Let's start with this. So we can find good place for spring block. Okay? And then just as a fun element to add to our map, they have actually quite a variety of different landscapes. Like they had grasslands and spry and they have Beach. And so I was just gonna add little bits, but here's some trees and some mountains. And maybe we'll put some waves next. Beaches. Just like if we were giving some topography to our maps. Okay. Just fade into our map here. There is our map of South Africa. And keep trying daily. We'll see you tomorrow. 26. November 24: Greece: Welcome back. Today we're traveling to Greece. And I thought it would be really fun because it's near the water. It's so beautiful and it's really old. So I've got the Acropolis of Athens there for their building. And then this is the national flower. I think it bears breach. And then a dolphin is their national animal. How fun is that? And then of course I have their flag. Alright, so I'm going to trace my map here. But because there's all these islands, I'm going to try and make it easier on myself for tracing it. So hit my select and automatic. And I'm gonna click on as many oranges as I can. And that way when I have them selected, I can go to a new layer. And a new layer, I will only be able to draw and the area is selected. So I'll show you that in just a moment. Let me run through getting all these tiny islands selected. Okay, and so now I'll do a new layer. And on that new layer, I will just color this all in. You can also draw up the color that will work too. So either way, I'm just killing in because it seemed like a fast way to get all these tiny islands. Anyway and get all the edges because it's kinda like a central EU and to get all the way till the edges. And then if I take off my map and de-select. So it's not perfect because it kept the words in. But I have all the outlines. So now I can just go in and fill in where those words were. And I have all those islands without having to draw every single island. All right, there we go. I fill in my whole map and I'm going to put on my drawing and start my lettering. All right, there's my lettering. And now I will do my flag on a cookie mask on my lettering. And now I'm going to go layers and start adding my elements. I think I'll start with this dolphin because it's adorable. Alright, and now and draw their flour. And then next, the building that are elements, let's place them in. And then for elements that go on the map, I thought I'd do a couple of those cities that they have with the domes and they're all stacked on top of each other, right by the seaside. Half circles in buildings. So even though it's not necessarily exactly where it is, it's done, it gives the effects that I'm looking for. And then I will just fade into math. And there we go is our cute little map of Greece. I hope you enjoyed that. Keep growing daily and I will see you tomorrow. Bye. 27. November 25: USA: Hello friends. Today we're digging to the USA. And so I've got a map here. And then the national animal is bison. And there's the flag and rows. And then I've got the Statue of Liberty. So I'm going to start with my map and trace that up. Alright, and I just realized that this map didn't have Alaska, Hawaii. So I grabbed another one. And we're just trained person accuracy here. There's my map. So I can do my lettering and have it be straight. There's my letter pad on the flag. With the flag and start on some of these other elements. I think I'll start here with the basin, and then I'll move on to the statue. Let's arrange these elements vary. One thing, I thought I would draw some highways here on our map. They would go, I fitted them. And that looks pretty good. I hope you enjoyed that and keep drawing all these prompts and discovering all these places. And I will see it. 28. November 26: Argentina: Hello. Today we are going to Argentina, and this is the map and their flag. This is the animal to slow bird and this red flower. And then they're known for this waterfall. And so I'm gonna get started on my map and then go from there. There's my math, and now I'm going to throw up my intro. So I have some straight lines for mile lettering and I'm going to read that. All right, I've got my lettering there. I'm going to throw a clipping mask so that I can do the flag over top of it. There's my Leonard and I'm going to start drawing my other elements here. So let's start with this bird. And now we'll work on this waterfall. And then these flower is all are elements. Let's arrange them where they go. And then for a map element, I'm just going to put on some nice easy mountains because they do have a ton of mountains. Once again, I'm not giving them exactly what they would be on the map, but if that's something you wanna do on yours. And also of course i'll just, because I like that look a lot of Argentina. I hope you enjoyed that and keep trying daily and I'll see you tomorrow. 29. November 27: Czech Republic: Hello there, welcome back. Today we are traveling to the Czech Republic. So I've got the map here and then I got their flag. And their national flower is arose, and their national animal is actually another mythological animal life. How Scotland had a unicorn. Theirs is the double tail of Lyon. So it's this cool guy. And then Prague is definitely one of the reasons I wanted to visit there. So I just grabbed the skyline because pretty cool spires on this building. We just thought it was a neat skyline. So we'll start here with our map and then go from there. Alright. Now I'll throw on my drawing on a new layer onto the lettering. There's my lettering. And now I had a clipping mask on top of that. Now I've got their lettering down. I will start on these other elements. I think I'll start with this rows here. I think. Try this, dude. Alright, and then lastly, I think, right, and I just see arrange these how we want them. All right, there we go. There's our map. I hope that was fun for you. Keep drawing daily and I will see you tomorrow. 30. November 28: Indonesia: Welcome back to today we're taking a trip to Indonesia. And here's their map of all the islands out there. And they're flag is red and white. This beautiful white flowers, their national flower. Their national animal is actually the Komodo dragon, which is super cool. I love Komodo dragons there so neat. And then this is a temple in Bali that PLOS ONE lake. It's a really iconic image. So I thought that would look good on our map to. So I'm going to start with my map outline and then move on from that. This is our map of Indonesia. And now I'm going to start on my lettering layer. And for those straight lines and really smooth fresh from the most here I misspelled this, I forgot the d. So the easiest way is to just take my letters and just move them over enough space for me so that D in there. And then I don't have to start all over on my lettering layer. There's a lot of easy fixes and procreate, so don't let mistakes get you down. Just keep drawing. Alright, now I'm gonna add the colors to flag here on the mask above my lettering. And the colors are red and white. But because this map have my lettering would disappear. So I might have to make it an off white here so we can see it visually. It looks like, oops, it's so visually work. Looks like red and white. So that we can see it really well. Yeah, I think that works. Alright, let's start trying some of these other elements we have. I think I'll start with this flower here. And now on a new layer, I'll work on the temple. And then I'll move on to the dragon. And, and let's move these elements around where we want them. And there's a map of Indonesia. I think that was fun. And I hope you're enjoying these. Keep drying daily and I'll see you then. Bye. 31. November 29: Object Perspective: Hello there. This month we've been talking about perspective. And today we're gonna talk about object perspective. So if you could go to the Reference tab and find this, this will be, there'll be just called box. And you can download it and you can put into procreate or you can print it off whichever you're more comfortable with. It. It will just be a JPEG, so it's really easy. And this is just a box template. So what you can do with this is you can just turn it into a building and draw some windows. Or you can turn it into a product box and add a logo. Or you could just add random colors and shapes. And then I want you to print it off and cut it out and shape into a box. Now you're probably wondering what this has to do with object perspective. Well, I have my box here and I just drew a little cute little building on it. But what we can do now we can lay it at different angles and then draw those angles and give us perspective with a 3D object. Now if you're not feeling like doing a craft project today, totally understandable. Just grab a box from your cupboard of cereal or crackers and just turn it, whichever way. I just thought I'd add a little bit fun and Xunzi with this template. But if you don't want to use it, that's fine too. And this is a great exercise that you can do with other shaped things. You can do it with a cylinder, sitting with a glass. Anything you see around you and hold a different perspective. So we're gonna dive into this drawing, this one, and different perspectives are little objects. So I have my building. And so if I were to lay it like this as gone, probably look a little different for you than for me. But I have a new layer. I have my side. And I can see that skinny side with the skinny window and I'm just sketching brush because what I'm doing is I am just figuring out how this looks. And you can always turn on your drawing guide with the perspective to help you get your lines. How you need to be, you will have to find what your perspective is depending on which way you turn your object. And now, because I drew on it, I can add the things that I drew. And I'm making sure to follow my same perspective lines that I had up here, down along my windows here and everything. So you see how this is parallel to these lines right here. So I make them all parallel. And then the neat part of this is you can just turn it any which way and get a whole new perspective. So there we go and gives me a couple of different perspectives. And this is just a great exercise. And like I said, you can use just about any object and draw from different perspective. And it's an excellent exercise if you're just sitting around doodling, if you see something on your desk or wherever you are in front of you, do it from different perspectives. And it really gets, trains your brain to pick up on all those nuances of which way your lines go in. And then eventually you can add shading and color and all that stuff to, to really give fullness to your object. And I hope that was a fun exercise for you and a little bit of fun creativity for your day. Keep drawing daily. We've almost reached the end of November here. You're doing awesome. I'm so proud of you and I'll see you tomorrow. Bye. 32. Npvember 30: Ireland: Well, welcome to the last day of November, friends. You've made it awesome. I'm so proud of you. And even if you didn't draw every single day, I'm still so glad you're here at the end of the month and you tried to draw daily. That's awesome. Today's prompt is Ireland, and I totally forgot that it was at the end of the promptness. And I remember I added on to the UK because it was like, well, it's right there, I should just add it on. But that's okay because we're still gonna do it. It's still our prompt and we'll just do the math in a different way from how we've been doing the apps because there's more than one way to do it. So I'm gonna start with an outline hair. And that part will be the same, but then what we do with the inside of it will be different. All right, now we've got our outline. And next I'm going to add the name. So I'm still kinda doing the same just because I want to label our map. Had men drawing guide here. And a new layer. I'll just add my lettering. Okay? And now the Irish flag goes green, white, can orange. So I thought it would be pretty neat to fill this half with some orange elements, are green elements and then this half with some orange elements. And so we'll have the depiction of the flag in the elements that we add to our map. So a new layer, I'm going to grab a good green here. And I'm just going to start drawing some elements. Of course I'll draw some clovers. Another thing they have a lot of his castle, so maybe I'll add a little castle here. They have a lot of trees. So I'm just gonna add some trees knew too. Okay. And now I'm just going to fill in all the empty space from lentil, green because I want this side to really reflect the green side of the flag. Alright, so there we've got the green side of flag. And I might even put them under my black outline, so really contains it there. And now we'll do the orange side of the flag. And think I'll add some like beer glasses sets here and spout out. Let's see what else is Irish soda bread in terms of inbred on there? Because there are some sheep, sheep burned. Right? I'm just filling in the gaps here. And this can make some bread loaves. And then we go, I kept it pretty simple, but it's kinda fun. Do it this way to just throw little elements in the colors of the flag. So that was fun. I really hope you enjoyed this month of trying around the world and it sparks some interest in new. We have a fun month coming up here in December. So yeah, let's keep trying daily. And I will see you tomorrow. Bye.
