Its' free and it takes less than 10 seconds!
Deadline: Sunday the 11th of May.
In addition to this, participants can choose to do an Optional "Medium Study" Study, in any medium.
When drawing, there's always a risk of sticking too much to your 'comfort zone'. It is a habit that can happen unconsciously. You work in a manner that you are familiar with or that is your strength. This can be in terms of style, topic, method, or anything else. Unfortunately, this offers little resistance and you won't learn many new things.
For this optional study we'll attempt to break out of a comfort zone a little. To be specific, the use of various drawing mediums. It is likely that you primarily use one medium for your gestures and studies. Such as a pencil or a simple round brush (digital).
This week, try to do some gestures or figures using different mediums. Possibly even some you have never used before. You can try as few or as many as you want. Just pick a few different drawing tools and experiment a little!
Come on soldiers! Flex those muscles!!

Stuff from a life drawing session and a few birds from the museum.
For the optional I tried avoiding my usual soft brushes and attempted to paint in the style of the painting on the left by Marta Nael.
EDIT: Added another pic for the optional. Self portrait using gouache. I moved too much so my face is wonky. Gouache was fun but I really struggled to get the colours.

Doubt kills more dreams than failure ever will.

Some pretty nice optional studies this round!
anciendrake - Yeah good point on the hand, you caught me . It started when I messed up with measuring and misplaced things slightly. There was not enough room for the hand.
