Today is the eleventh day of the #Shadowheartchallenge. And I didn’t miss a day Not every prompt was easy, some days I just didn’t know what to make of it. And there are a few difficult ones coming

This little “Fairy” was day 8 of the challenge. I’ve made her a couple of weeks ago on a scrap piece of cardboard (10cm x 10cm) and thought she was a perfect fit. I did the drawing with graphite pencil, and the coloring with Panpastels. For the background I’ve used a stencil with Panpastels.

The prompt for day 9 was “Donkey”. Had a few (a lot) difficulties with the little Donkey, I have much to learn. But he turned out kind of cute. I’ve used Derwent- and Caran d’Ache Pastel Pencils and Graphite Pencil.

Day 10 was “Sparkle” and I had a bit of trouble to make something of that. So I just started looking around my workspace and saw the little sticky pearls. That gave me the idea for this little sparkling girl. She’s really tiny, the scrap piece of cardboard is only 5cm x 5cm. For the drawing I’ve used Graphite Pencil, Caran d’Ache Pastel Pencils and Panpastels.

And then this morning I’ve got a big surprise! I was 1 of the 2 winners of the Art Challenge of this week! How cool is that! Soooo happy!

I just started drawing about a year ago and it’s such a huge thing for me to win something in a challenge with such beautiful entries from all over the world. It really motivates me to continue doing what I love to do! Thanks so much @Shadowheartcollective!

Had to sketch this little happy girl in my diary this morning
