EDM no 6 - draw a favourite well-loved object or a childhood toy. This bear was given to me by my husband when we had just met and I was going away as an exchange student for 6 months. He's called Kasper-Valter (Valter is my husband's middle name), and was my companion for those 6 months, sleeping in my bed, giving me a good night kiss every night. He is indeed well-loved.
I had intended to do a quick pencil sketch and then fill it in with ink and water color, but then this drawing just kind of came. I was hardly aware of what I was doing. I was even talking to my husband at the same time and the sketch just kept on coming through. Very cool experience, so I've decided to let him stay the way he is (but I really need to get some of that fixing spray, bacause the sketch is really getting smudged, just by me writing next to it). At least for now.
And this is how the intire spread turned out in the end, for challenges 5 and 6.
