Three fun exercises

I don't have a sketch for today, so instead I have three easy exercises you can use to practice and pass the time.

1. Photography: Go out to a park and take a bunch of pictures of the nature around you, and when you get back home try to recreate those pictures in a sketch.

2. Take a random scene from a book and sketch, or paint, it using your imagination to visualize the paragraph.

3. Same as two, only take the scene from a movie instead.(Much easier)

Sketch of the day: 7 (Jean and Cyclops kiss)

As a practice exercise I tried to recreate one my favorite sketches on Deviant art http://ashleigh-michelle.deviantart.com/art/Cyclops-and-Jean-Grey-Kiss-209075171.

This exercise helps beginner artists (like me) with things like shadowing, texture and perspective.
