A prompt and pet you love
Prompt: Vintage Ladies with Dogs
I've been using vintage photos as references lately and loving it. A lower image quality helps me not focus too much on minor details. So I can focus on capturing the subjects the way I naturally draw. I used pictures from the Yes Biscuit blog. It's a gold mine for vintage photos of pets and their people, which are always fun to draw.
Treat Yourself Like a Pet You Love
I've heard we're supposed to treat ourselves with the kindness we would give a child or friend. Let's treat ourselves like we treat our pets. When your dog or cat feels bad, I bet you stop in your tracks to help them. Give yourself that same urgency you're feeling frustrated, worried, or sad. Step away and take a walk, eat a snack, or try this guided meditation. A five-minute break can buy me hours of free time later because I’m not ruminating over every line I write or draw.
