The DF52 Project for 2011
Would you be amazed if I told you that I drew this in 30 minutes? So would I! Sorry, but don’t expect this type of thing in the new DF52 project. Still, I think we’ll be able to pull off some nice work for our respective readers in 2011.
Yes, Jeff Kennedy and I are indeed doing another DF52 project for 2011: Drawing Fish 52. We decided that we needed a break from flies, so we’re doing gamefish this year—52 of them in all. There will cold-water, warm-water and saltwater fish represented. We’ll do the common to the rare, and as with the DF52 fly-based project, we’ll be limiting drawing/painting time to 30 minutes maximum. Unlike that project, though, we’ll be leaving it up to each of us as to how we’ll represent each fish. That is, we can do headshots, half-bodies, full fish, static shots, action, whatever. We feel that will keep things mixed up a bit more without losing the spirit of the original DF idea.
So, start watching for Drawing Fish 52 every Thursday in 2011, starting on January 6!
