Day 318: Fruit iPad Sketches

Posted by annagrace under Days 301-365

I don’t know if you’ve ever heard of the game Draw Something for phones/tablets, but it’s a really fun game sort of like Pictionary where you draw pictures for your friend to guess. It’s really addictive and hilarious and also the inspiration for this post!

I was playing a friend of mine and got the word “fruit.” Before I knew it I became inthralled in the drawing of various fruits with epic shading! She probably guessed the word way before I finished drawing, but I had so much fun that I decided to do some more drawings on my iPad without having to worry about my time in the game. I started by drawing a peach, then ended up, on a whim adding the phrase “She’s such a peach” to it. So I thought, what are some other fruit-related phrases that I could use? So I ended up with 4 drawing/phrase combos! First comes the peach…

Then I drew a slice of a lemon with “When life gives you lemons.” I think this is my least favorite…

Then I drew a couple of cherries with the phrase “Life’s a bowl of cherries.”

Finally I drew a green apple with the phrase “the apple of my eye!”

I think the apple is my favorite! I really loved playing with the layering of different shades on top of each other to get the final image! I think I’ll do some more finger doodling on my iPad :)
