#Easy and Hard Challenge
#30 day challenge
WOW YOU GUYS So many people expressed interest in doing a daily draw group thing, made me totally excited, and when I get excited I blow things way out of proportion and therefore I have designed a new one hahahaha.
So the way this works is, each day will have 2 opposing prompts. You can choose the one that is harder for a challenge, or the one that is easier if you don’t have a lot of time or it’s an off day. I fully expect to be doing like half easy. Also this is 20 days because 20 days is as far into the future as I can think without having an anxiety attack also April will happen.
Here are the prompts!
Portrait / Action Pose
Interior / Exterior
Black&White / Color
Machinery / Nature
Saturated Palette / Muted Palette
70 / 30 Rule (Explained at about 5:35- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-oO2J2ponho)
Suit / Dress
Full Page / Vignette
Gruesome / Saccharine
Industrial / Pastoral
Little Kid / Old Person
Open Space / Enclosed Space
Love / Hate
Pretty / Ugly
Pattern / Random
Form / Function
Modern / Vintage
Cluttered / Clean
Monstrous / Cute
Badass / Innocent
Odds and Ends:
- About once a week I’ll cross off the ones that we’ve done and reblog.
- Feel free to jump in AT ANY TIME!
- Tag your sketches “Easy and Hard Challenge,” so we all know where to look!!!
- NEVER FEEL BAD about skipping a day! Just jump on the next one you can fit in. You can catch up if you want, but momentum is more important, that’s why it’s going to be so great to do this in a group.
OKAY WE START TOMORROW WITH PORTRAIT OR ACTION POSE!
Let’s do this thing! Hopefully I can get them all in :) Tomorrow - ACTION POSE …Is it strange I’m really looking forward to a lot of the hard ones?

Over the holidays I did a doodle that turned into more than I expected. With ‘chocolate truffles’ as a start word, I tried out my new gold marker & a bit of fancy lettering and got something kinda neat : the illustration in image 1 - minus photoshop extras. It sparked the idea for an imaginary truffle bakery logo design - finally, something I can put in my portfolio. I love the idea of logo & type design!
Practice makes perfect I guess, so onto the next project! …or maybe even more of this one? I could retouch the logo & add a menu, business card, and/or package design. Good idea? Y/N?
Oh, but first - any suggestions on the color?
Thanks for the input ❤ Dani.K

Here’s a cute ‘Frozen’ inspired card I put together while pondering the sad absence of cloaks in today’s society. Seriously though, why are cloaks not the go-to fashion choice during this super chilly season? They’re heavy, warm, unisex, cute & a hell of a lot classier than bulky winter coats. They’re practical robes for your average Jane & Joe, not just something made for wizards & witches & whatnot. We really need some fashion forward folk to take up the call of the cloak, and soon, before I freeze my booty off in these flimsy ‘winter’ jackets! #CanadianProblems

To keep myself motivated during my rut, I’ve decided to start a large project - an awesomely illustrated game! I’ve been doing mostly concept work, as you can see, and trying to decide exactly WHAT kind of a game I want to make. At first I was thinking of doing a funny fantasy card game, but now I’ve decided to try tackling an even MORE CHALLENGING project: a digital game :O I know a bit about coding & I’ve got tutorials out the anus, so I figure if I rotate between concept doodles, coding practice, and coming up with an epic-ass final game idea, at some point things will start falling into place & I’ll be on my way! :D
Thank you for following me! Great art.
Thank you for following me back. Your work is amazing! I wish you the best of luck with your commissions. Keep up the great art :D
#so many notes
#Dani K Design
This weekend my Zelda post managed to hit 7000 notes, so I decided to make something special to commemorate the occasion. Everybody, say hello to aquiveringsmile! This is the lovely lady who helped me finally hit that 7k. Her blog’s display picture was too cute to ignore. I would drink coffee all the time if I had dinos on my cup!! Oh wait, I drink coffee all the time anyway …well, dinos would make the experience a lot more enjoyable! Seriously, I want that cup.
Anyway, I think I may do a few more random bust shots over the next few days. Hopefully then I can set up commissions! :O I really need to make some dolla’ dolla’ bills soon, or I’m going to have to start eating my artwork for nourishment. Yum, paper cuts.
SO, thanks to every one of you that passed around my illustration, even the ones who didn’t source me. Hopefully my next big hit will get me the credit I deserve, but until then, THANKS for the lovings, and remember, keep smiling! :D
