Frankie is a Work of Art

Recently, I started following a blog called One Drawing Daily. The author and artist, Thomas, committed himself to draw everyday to improve his skills.

I paused after writing that first sentence because I realized I never saw his first drawings and I wanted to see how much he has improved. After looking, I believe he has improved but he also started out 100 times more artistically talented than I am now.

Anyway, after following his blog I also liked his Facebook page where he mentioned he was taking requests for drawings. Naturally, I sent him a request and he responded yesterday with this beautiful drawing of Frankie. You may have seen it before on the post “Could This be the End of Outsideย Adventures?
2015_04_29 Frankie - Drawn by Thomas from onedrawingdaily dot comI think it is a beautiful rendition. What do you think? If you like it, perhaps you can leave a comment on his post here as well. Just for a reference, I have included the original photo below.

    Interesting, the proportions look really right. He clearly has talent and will improve further. I also lilke the idea of the plan to practice every day.

        That is so true. I do it similar with my photos. And back then I did write to improve my English, it helped anyhow (I bet I learned more English through reading and writing than in school, laugh).

        Blogging is a great motivation for a lot of things. I guess many people think we bloggers set up a blog to get some kind of attention, while this might be true too of course (who doesn’t like attention), it’s not the main reason, in fact it is for me the smallest reason.

        There is much more about blogging. It has much more to do with self improvement, getting aware of the own thoughts, improving the writing, documenting stories (as our cat stories for example, he he) or simply documenting the progress while doing or practing something as in the case of the guy drawing things every day.

        I also noticed a pattern that those who have more reasons than just getting attention, are those who stay active for the longest time in the blogosphere. So, I see the motivation from both sides, blogging can motivate to follow the own interests, and the interests can motivate to continue blogging. ๐Ÿ™‚

          I blog for many reasons. mostly it is because I enjoy it but it also helps to improve my writing. I have a bicycle blog that I started to help motivate me to ride my bike to work more often. it worked pretty good until my job changed and I could no longer ride to work. The blog then just faded away.

            Same here, I do enjoy it too. But to be honest, I didn’t even know if I would enjoy it. I think I just created the blog out of boredom years ago but eventually started to enjoy the writing and sharing. ๐Ÿ˜€

            It’s understandable with your bicycle blog. When activities fade away, for what ever reason, you have less to report about it and give up on the blog. I did that too. I created a new tech blog some time ago, mainly to publish all the computer games related topics there rather than on my broad blog. Eventually I played less pc games, resulting in a rarely updated tech blog *laugh*. However, I enjoy it much more anyway to publish on my broad blog, I have too much interests, they fit better into a broad blog ๐Ÿ˜€

              I have a broad blog too that I have not written to in a long time because I just have too much to do but I want to write there again soon.

    Reblogged this on Bad Cat Chris and commented:

    Here is a post for Throwback Thursday featuring a hand drawing of Frankie back in April of 2015. The artist that drew it had a blog that, unfortunatly, is no longer being updated.
