Artist Creates Awesome Ink Sketches Every Day for a Year

Artist Gabriel Picolo clearly used his time in 2014 very well. Gabriel decided to do ink sketches every day for the whole year. Thus the 365 sketch project was born! He started drawing and uploading the sketches to an account on DeviantArt, created specifically for the 365 project. Some of the drawings are personal reflections and self portraits, some are fan art of video games or movies. All of them are amazing. Check out a few of my favorites from this epic sketch collection:

Clearly this is just a sampling of the sketches that Gabriel made since there are 365! Definitely make sure to check out his DeviantArt gallery for the rest.

This is such an awesome idea. Maybe you should give it a try for the new year! There’s still time to start this project for 2015 and create your 365 sketches. It’s a great way to get into the habit of drawing and it will definitely help improve your skills! Check out Gabriel’s gallery for inspiration and his journal about the project, then grab some of the latest IMPACT titles like Winged Fantasy by Brenda Lyons, Mastering Fantasy Art by John Stanko, Manga Crash Course by Mina Petrovic and Shojo Fashion Manga Art School, Boys by Irene Flores and Krisanne McSpadden for great drawing tutorials to help you get started!
