    A coffee cup and a fake apple!

    I do a large amount of practice in the mornings before I go to work, forty minutes to an hour. That way if something comes up in the evening and I don't get to draw, I still have some work under my belt. These are the products of that effort.

    A cup!

    Used a desk lamp as light.

    A fake apple, and my eyes.

    Positioned the apple on my window ledge, which gave it some pretty soft shadows. I also noticed the darkest part of the shadow was shaded in a direction that didn't follow the shape of the apple, now it looks like a huge dent.

    My eyes.

    I sat about six inches from a mirror in my room and just started drawing them eyes, First time in over 2 years.

    A little bit at a time.

    The same fake apple, but a week prior.

    Went to Hobby Lobby, bought some B and 4B lead, hung out on my balcony and began drawing

    I tried a new thing where I sanded my lead to an angle to achieve a more interesting line. I think it worked out pretty good.

    The same cup, but laying on my bed.

    My back had been killing me in the last couple days, which made it hard for me to find a comfortable position to draw in. So, I was left with tossing that cup on my bed and propping my back against the wall.

    After typing that out, I realized you probably didn't need to know that.

    Well, now you do.

    Sorry, if this doesn't make sense. I'm very tired.

    Matija Vuk – Thanks! I've really trying to work on that.

    Tim Murphy – Yeah your right, I sometimes get in the habit of abandoning a sketch after the first 15 seconds if I don't feel like its going where I want it to. I really need to break that :|

    Starting off with a clown painting hanging in my room, ignore the creepy face, I was just focusing in figure. I'm going to try it again tonight.

    Oh man! Talk about being out of your element! I decided to go to the library and try to sneak some gesture drawings, they are pretty horrible, but I'm ok with that, because I was very uncomfortable doing it, but I'm excited to do it again next week!
