The Art of Sketching: Transform Your Doodles into Art

I am taking the course The Art of Sketching: Transform Your Doodles into Art by  Mattias Adolfsson, Illustrator, at domestika.org. Here are the drawing assignments I did, I lack drawing skills or exercise so be gentile in criticizing me. 

06.01.2021 Introduce yourself and introduce your drawing materials 

Hello! My name is Maria and I live in Romania. I use a simple mechanic 0.5 pencil and colored pencils and a sketch book. My sketchbook has thin paper and those are the best tools that I found for it. Hope this course inspires me to draw more.

What are your influences?

Hi! I grew up watching on TV Japanese anime like Sailor Moon and reading comic books from Disney. I love them still. Now I just make little doodles in my journal, things that happen in my life inspire me to draw. I recently discovered a few artists on Instagram and drawing challenges ("draw this in your style" type) that inspired me to try to draw, but draw using a computer in Corel Draw or Photoshop.

21.04.2021 One-point perspective
Hi! I did a simple drawing of a room, with me on the bed, my husband showing up at the door and my daughter playing with butterflies. I added butterflies as a fantastic apparition. Two cats sit around, one on the bed and one under the bed.
