Challenge #5

I'd like to see how you draw the sun. It something we've all done as kids and usually it was just a plain old yellow circle. 
Sometimes, we'd even add sunrays, at least I did.

And in the textbooks, they always made the sun smile.
With computers, now we can make the sunrays transparent:
My favourite, though, is this one:
What's yours?

Challenge #4

It's been a while so I thought I'd post a new challenge, but, of course, you can still reply to all the previous ones. Just send your image (or a link to an image that you uploaded elsewhere) to Do not send anyone else's images, unless you have that person's permission to do so. All the images on this site belong to their authors and any unauthorised use is prohibited.

So now that I got that out of the way, here's your challenge: They say you can't go wrong with a nice picture. What about an ice picture? That's right, the theme of this challenge is ice. Have fun!

Placeholder. Until I get around to drawing more photorealistic ice, here's a doodle I did on iSketch. (And I don't mean to imply that your pictures should be photorealistic, I'm just setting a goal for myself.)

Okay, now that my tablet is working again, I finally got around to drawing my first ice cube. This is what came out:
I'd say not bad for a first attempt, but it's not quite photorealistic. Maybe I'll give it another try. 
Oh yeah, I'm supposed to remove that walrus now that I did this. But, y'know, It's grown on me, so I think I'll keep it, at least until gets too crowded here.
