Charcoal Pencil Vegetable Magic

Line pencil drawing of a gourd. While drawing,
it reminded me of a spaceship.

I've re discovered a charcoal pencil in my art bin. I was getting tired of drawing with the usual graphite pencils. This month I also explored adding colored pencils to my drawings, which brings them to life a bit.

Some of these gourds and peppers often remind me of animals or rocket ships.

I've drawn them so many times, you'd think I'd have them memorized by now. Sometimes, I notice the drawings can be a little stylized. I've been trying to be more aware of when I do so.
It is fun to add over exaggeration, stylizing and incorrect proportions for imaginative purposes.
