I find this piece by my son (5 y/o) really interesting. A strong, simple style that I have not seen from him before. You can see a face coming through very clearly. It also highlights some of my thoughts about using a tool like Doodlebugs Drawing School. In addition to giving instruction, I also encourage my kids to draw from their imagination, as well as completely abstract work. He loves to work with the drawing lessons, but also enjoys creating abstract shapes and patterns. This style is far from anything that I have included in DDS, but I can see that he has benefited from the improvement in fine motor skills for his mark making.
This piece is by my daughter (3 y/o). I love her attention to detail! She has a great imagination and includes all kinds of things in her scenes. There is definitely a sense of perspective developing, with smaller trees seen in the background. She has a natural love of drawing and expresses herself very freely, and I find it interesting that none of these items are included in DDS. I do see how her fine motor skills have improved, and her love for drawing has really flourished.
