November Challenge

Hello!
My name is Maria and I'm a graphic designer from Ukraine.

I'm newbie here, so it's my first project. And I must say that it's also my first challenge ever :) I really hope I can do it till the end. One of my goals for this project is starting to show my works (I'm kind shy and feel all that I do isn't good enough) Thats why I'm gona post it here and in my instagram (if someone is interested @epine_art)

So, let the journey begin

Day #1 Fall

Fall illustration by colored pencils. Must say that it was a bad idea to use pencils, I couldn't make colors vibrant enough. 

Work in process .

Day #3 Color

I just could'nt choose a one color, so I used all of them :) Sorry, this time no photo in process, I could'nt stop while I was working, it would spoil the drawing. It took my about 15 minutes and I used watercolors.

Day #4 Hay

Today I was totally busy by drawing roses for a gift poster. So, today just a 2 minutes pencil sketch. But I thought it would be fair if I'll also show you the rose drawing

Day #9 Seasons

This time I've spoiled my drawing. It should be a summer seashell but it looks like in past live it was a croissant :)) I've read somewhere, that if you wouldn't love your artwork, then who will? So, it's my spoiled drawing, but in any way I love it:)

Hi everyone! Today is my Thanksgiving day :) I would like to say thanks to all of you! For all your likes, comments and feedback here and at my Instagram. All this really means a lot for me! And special Thank you to Ria! You're my daily inspiration :)
Also I would like to say sorry if sometimes I answer you in a few days. I just need a lot of time to write something in English, so sometimes I need some extra time to answer you. But be sure, I won't leave any message without attention. Thanks once again!

It's hard to find the words to express all my gratitude. Ria, thank you for creating this project and all of you - for daily support. I could not have done it by myself without you!
This Challenge is not only helping me to achieve my goal, but also opened up new possibilities. I proposed the creation of a class and after much thought, I agreed.
I will have a lot of work and I want to ask you for help. If you really like some of my works, or you like me to do it step by step explained - please let me know! I really want to make my class interesting:)
Thank you again for everything! It was an unforgettable experience!
