week 5 in sketches - FB sketch challenge

seed pod of some sort. I drew it from a photo I'd taken years ago, but I still can't figure out exactly what it is.

Came up with the idea the other day to ask my FB friends to pick some animals for me to draw, and it seems it's something people want to do! So, above is the result of the first challenge. I had to do: pangolin, ladybird, chicken, rhino and Bostie. The Bostie became an alien. Let's just call it artistic licence. Overall, pretty happy with it. :)

The second challenge gave me saddleback pig (a la wheelie), bumblebee, lemur, bongo and giraffe. If anyone wants to play,  I'll probably be doing them quite a lot. Just go to my BBE Facebook page to see what's up. There's usually going to be a pretty tight time frame in which I'm collecting 'subjects' ... so get in early!

My friend Victor wanted an axelotl. Couldn't resist that even though he missed the cut. Need to work on it, it's simply not nearly as cute as the real thing... although I do have a soft spot for the little fella on the right.


  1. the peeking giraffe is the cutest thing!

    1. thanks! It was absolutely nothing to do with the fact that I didn't leave enough space on the paper ;)
      I like him too. :)
