Illustration Friday: Empty

Are you up for a good challenge? Doing this drawing was good motivation to empty my dishwasher plus it was great for practicing my perspective and overlapping. It's not totally correct, but all I could manage after a day of driving and then hanging out at the fair with the kids (pay one price day) riding rides and eating fair food. I'm exhausted. Good night.

Thats BADA$$! You must be extremely patient. I cant stare at my dishwasher for more then 10 secs before I feel uneasy.

I can't imagine how you could want to draw the inside of a dishwasher - but then to produce such a great drawing - well done.

Girl, you are good! However did you do that without getting lots of lines crossing future line where they shouldn't? If that makes any sense at all! Great work.

Wow! is this ever a really great drawing. I never would have thought to draw my dishwasher....I just usually speed through loading and unloading.

amazing drawing! as Chuck said, considering you'd spent a day at the fair with kids, I can't imagine how you had the concentration after getting home to do this!!!

Awesome! I think the time with your children must have been so wild that you needed some focus and discipline. I know I would surely need it to draw this. Well done!
