My family and I have a tradition of watching Christmas movies every December. One of the movies we watch is I'll be Home for Christmas, starring Jonathan Taylor Thomas and Jessica Biel. There's a line in the movie about Jonathan's character being attacked by a killer tumbleweed. I thought it would make for an interesting sketch if I took it further. Here, it actually is a killer tumbleweed, a living one. It's sort of like Attack of the Killer Tomatoes. I wanted to keep it simple, so I drew it in a cartoony style. We'll most likely be watching I'll be Home for Christmas this December, as we do every December. It's a cool movie (I'll be Home for Christmas).

My sister made some decorations for my birthday using a machine that makes cutouts of silhouettes. One of the things she made was of The Punisher symbol. It already looked cool, but I photoshopped it, and I think this looks cool too. I like how the skull has a metallic look to it. My sister made the cutout of The Punisher skull with a foil-like paper, which has adhesive on the back. She put that on a black paper circle. The paper is more or less like you'd use for a scrapbook. It's one of my favorite decorations she made. Below is a picture of the decoration.
This is my drawing for day 25 of Terri's "30 DAY DRAWING/ART CHALLENGE." You're supposed to draw "your favourite sweet food/candy/etc (Terri)." I have a few favorites, actually, and this is one of them. This specifically is a drawing of a fun size Twix from a Christmas variety bag. The scallop in the right circle behind the Twix is because one of the circles on the wrapper is like that. At least it looks like a circle with a scallop on the wrapper. I'm thinking of doing more with it later.

I've been researching the various ways to hold your pencil when drawing. One of the things I found was a YouTube video at this link. It's from Proko. It looks interesting. I'm thinking of trying it after this post. I recommend giving the technique a try.
Update: There's another video, this one from Fine Art Tips, about how to hold your pencil when drawing. It's at https://youtu.be/TKagPZSLq6Y.
