EDM 1 - Shoe


I'm going to try to catch up on the challenges, and do the current one and at lease one other every week. I might not do them in order, but I really wanted to do the shoe challenge. This is my new pink summer shoes (or Rose Madder Hue shoes if you're a purist). I liked the colors of the shoe and Rose Madder is not a color I use very often. The beds are a soft grey, and there are little brass colored metal accents, and small cutouts. It was a very fun shoe to sketch.

I have actually been doing the challenges since last summer, but they were mostly quick sketches in my journal using crayons or markers. Maybe I could post them side by side and see the progression, see the difference between reallly trying and just tossing something off.

Gorgeous! They look good but comfy all at the same time and your sketch is equally appealing.
Bravo!
