The legendary animator Tom Bancroft has a challenge for you this month! Come check it out and join in.
Over on his Instagram account, Tom has created #MerMay, a drawing challenge that invites you to “post a new mermaid drawing every day in May.”
A lot of great artists and animators have already joined in (you can see the results via a search for the #MerMay hashtag) so why not you? It’s a terrific opportunity to stretch your creative skills, and most importantly get some daily practice in. Remember, if you don’t practice, those skills will get rusty and fall apart. Give it a whirl.
Also keep in mind that while Tom’s MerMay art is fantastic and finished with great care, even rough practice on a daily basis will improve your own personal skill. It’s not a competition, it’s a way for we animators to get together and push ourselves as a group. Everyone wins when we all improve!
