EDM Challenge 101 Draw a Bar of Soap

Sandalwood soap I received from my Secret Santa partner in the Henna Page gift swap. Smells great, but I don't want to use it up! Pencil in my hedgie...that's watercolor paper!

Here's a song I remember from Girl Scouts...


"Oh I wish I were a little bar of soap (bar of soap),
Oh I wish I were a
little bar of soap (bar of soap),
I'd go slippy, slippy slidey, over
everybody's hidey,
Oh I wish I were a little bar of soap (bar of
soap)!"

I like this. It is clean (oops, no pun intended), good lines and shadowing. Nice!

Linda said...

:-D I remember that little song! Great shadows and lettering on this drawing.

Great job! I love the shading and how lovely you rendered the soap. Looks like you spent some time thinking about what to draw, too - finding something special. Love the BONUS gg song. :) Ah me ... these EDMs are about soooo much more than drawing. Cheers! Mary Ellen

What fun, Malinda! And you did a terrific job on the drawing...and how weird, it said my URL contained illegal characters! It was just http://cathyjohnson.com--same old URL conventions...

Beautiful drawing that really takes advantage of all graphite can be.
