I have chosen 30 days of birds to be my drawing challenge. Over the past two weeks, I have been using Stephanie's photoshop methods to explore creating flowers, animals and birds. From Stephanie's suggestions in this class, I've decided that 30 days is a good length, and after the last few days of sketching birds, I've decided that I have some hope of producing 30 birds. I hope that in this challenge, I will get a lot of practice drawing birds, and I hope I can get better at photoshop, including a better workflow for using brushes and creating textures.

I would like to spend the next week or so putting together a few more sketches, ideas, and even images, and getting my system ironed out before I officially start. Any comments most welcome. My instagram name is gailgongster.
Since my initial post to this project I have created the following birds (7 more days worth):
And there seems I have no excuse to start. However, my back has started bothering me again, I think made worse by my creating the above images, and so I have decided to take a week or so off until my back feels more comfortable. Perhaps a good time to start is January 1, 2019.
