And here is a Jessica Rabbit for the same daily sketch challenge. I've been enjoying the @Sketch_Dailies twitter community a lot lately (tonnes of great artists who post work there), and I probably just got too ambitious on this one. Instead of a sketch, I started to draw a fully illustrated scene with a detailed background and everything. So I didn't get it finished by the time they'd posted the next challenge. That's okay, though, it means I can now take my time on it. And I can also post it in stages, so you can see some work as it progresses. Will probably post it again when I've finished inking.

Yesterday I discovered this Twitter account, @Sketch_Dailies, which is sort of like the Mystery Cave in that they feature different artists' takes on established pop culture characters.
I've always loved seeing various interpretations of the same subject matter, and the artists submitting to the Sketches Daily challenge seemed to be creating some totally amazing sketches. And they were putting drawings together quickly, too, which I also really admire.
I definitely found it inspiring so I thought that I might try to participate in today's Sketches Daily challenge, whatever the character was to be. As it turned out, it was Cleopatra (seen above).
If you draw or paint, maybe you might like to try it too? Just find @Sketch_Dailies on Twitter, find out the current theme and submit a drawing.
