Art: Drawings and Beyond

Getting Cocky with New Art Supplies

It’s the year of the Rooster on the Chinese zodiac calendar! Which is fantastic because it is the same Chinese zodiac I have. Well, kinda. I did some research and found out that apparently each zodiac has an element that also goes along with them. Have you heard of that before?

So this year is the Fire Rooster, specifically. Mine was the water rooster I think, which is very appropriate since I’m an Aquarius as well. So along with the personality traits you see for being a certain zodiac, you also get specific personality traits associated with your element.

So last week on Boards & Crafts I created a Nautical Notebook that was made out of recycled paper, which is a material that I’ve never really used for drawing. I also got some new sketch pencils to try out. The drawing you see above used these new supplies that I’m testing out at the moment. (Hopefully I’ll have a better review over these in the next few weeks, so look out for that.)

This piece was created for a challenge that is being held on Instagram by @ifdrawaweek. It’s lasting all week if you would like to join in on the fun!

Thank you all for reading, and if you like this design let me know with a like on the blog post or a quick comment below!
