Fall In Love with February: Week 1 of the February Challenge

Welcome back to Fall In Love with February! I’ve really enjoyed this past week. Since I’m only finishing a drawing every other day, this week was a bit more relaxed and I think my drawings benefitted from it. There are only three being posted here this week, because drawing number 4 won’t be finished until later today.

If you are following along, make sure to use #FallInLoveFeb2018 if you post on Instagram or Twitter. I’d love to see your creations!

This week in art

I love the month of February. I love Valentine’s day. So I was excited to get started this week. Drawing lovey-dovey couples just doesn’t get old for me. The most difficult prompt for me was the very first one. How did I want the couple to meet? Where should they be? What should they be doing? Once I’d made those decisions, the rest of the week came pretty easily. I decided to work a good bit on my tablet this month and try to get some practice in on it, so two of my three drawings this week were done on my Surface. I’m starting to get the hang of it a little better. Though, I think that has more to do with my use of Clip Studio Paint over Photoshop than any skill on my part.

Anyway, let’s take a look at the first few drawings for February!

Fall in Love With February Day 1-2: Meeting for the 1st Time

In Love

I thought about where I would want to be in February and the first place I thought of was a nice sunny beach. So that’s where my little couple meets for the first time. Poor guy, he looks totally smitten by that winking vixen!

Drawn on Surface Pro 4 with Clip Studio Paint.

Fall in Love With February Day 3-4: Becoming Friends

In Love

I changed her hairstyle a bit this time, but I’m trying to stay with the same couple overall. I really liked this picture. It was a bit time consuming due to the table and chairs, but I really like the whole thing.

Fall in Love With February Day 5-6: Holding Hands

In Love

Okay, now they are just getting super duper cute! I love this one a lot. The little blush on her face says so much and they look so adorable together. I can’t wait to draw more of this couple and see how it progresses.

Drawn on copy paper with standard pencil, Sharpie super fine marker, and Prismacolor Pencils.

Next Week?

This coming week we have a couple having their first kiss, hugging, spending time together, and then (dum dum da dum) a proposal! Be sure to let me know if you are joining in and share your drawings on Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter with #FallInLoveFeb2018.
