Tell me how to draw.

Examples (I won't use these unless suggested):
- Left hand only,
- Five minutes limit,
- Red and green only,
- Feet,
- Blindfolded,
- Dots and lines.

Be creative. I want to pair them with the suggested subjects (which you can continue to suggest).

Anything from popular culture is fine, eg. Spongebob.
I tried drawing Spongebob blindfolded before starting this topic and it looked like some really interesting abstract thing, but you could still tell it was Spongebob.

I'll start drawing these when my mid-year break starts, which is in five weeks from now.

No. I got depressed and didn't feel like doing anything.
But thanks for reminding me. I have another break coming up soon. I'll try to get some done then.

Yeah, for some reason it's very pleasing to look at (the lighting/color scheme, very clear outlines, teh way lines are used for shadowing and for other stuff). Nice work!

Yeah that looks nice. For some reason it reminded me of Muse, like the Drones album and The Handler.. probably because of those hands.

I don't see what you see, ville_j, but if it reminds you of Muse then that makes me temporarily happy.

I think I might start this again. A random number generator picked FM's idea. Gah!

Edit:
Because I have to wait for the paint to dry I'll do the next one.

Next: Alligator eating peanut butter (requested by Tm).
Challenge? (random number generator, 0 = no, 1 = yes).
Outcome: 1.
Challenge selected: Eyes closed (requested by Lousku).

Oh my...
