#the100dayproject – days 96-100

Hello and happy Sunday! Today I´m shortly sharing the next faces of my personal #the100dayproject2021 challenge. Like mentioned before I drew a face a day on a pre-prepared, die cut tag. You can also see all the posts on my Instagram account (here), since I am now done with the drawing challenge. And you can also watch all the videos directly on my YouTube channel too (here).

And these are the very last ones! The challenge was so amazing to do. I have been scared to try it for such a long time.. silly of me really! What could happen if I failed? NOTHING! And all in all, I learned quite a lot during the 100 days on how I´m capable of things if I just put my mind to it AND that I have persistency enough for such a challenge. Maybe it´s also because I picked a good theme that was easy to work with. I didn´t put myself too many restrictions either which made working easier. And I was enthusiastic also. Might make a big difference too.

I enjoyed the challenge very much. And I had a good time drawing these faces. I learned alot and am happy with the development I made. I am now more confident when it comes to painting faces on canvases or into my art journal. Why? Because I have done a few and at least know what feels easy to me. I don´t have to make perfect, realistic faces, I can do ones I feel happy and comfortable with. Faces that match my skill level (which is beginner!). And it´s OK that way.

I might just challenge myself do some other things soon again in a similar manner. Pick a theme and do like, 50 days or a month or so. Just have fun and concentrate on something that is of interest to me. Does not have to be drawing at all.

So from my point of view I can highly recommend this type of challenges. And so what, if you take longer than 100 days to finish the 100 day challenge. That is totally ok too. Whatever works for you. Remember, you set these goals yourself and for yourself (and no-one else).

For the next to last set I did a pop-art-face, because the tag was quite large, so it was a good one to draw that type of face onto. The second face has really strange proportions. I could not do a set of faces without once adding droplets, so this one got loads of them.

The last three had really gorgeous colours on the tags already, so I didn´t want to hide them. Therefore I went with a black Posca pen drawing for them. That way the colorful background really pops.

For this set I was coming towards the end already. After drawing the Queen of Hearts I wanted to give a try on Corpse Bride. So that was the first one. The floral tag went perfectly with the monochromatic bride in blue. For the second one I had pre-treated the die cut tag with india ink and therefore it was quite busy already. I figured white, black and red would work well, and first drew the “pop-art” face only in red. However it disappeared into the background, so I added black lines for contrast.

The 3rd one was again full on colour, because I just felt like that again. Day 89 was my second (?) – I´ve lost count – paste treated tag, so I had only so little space for a face, so I went with what I knew and did smaller faces. this time in one-line-style. The last one was a heavily gelli printed tag with lots of colour on it, so I chose a red headed girl for that one. I also only at this point figured, that I could let the hair “flow” in wind. After 89 drawings *LOL*. Thus, flowing hair here.

As you can see everything is a process and you learn as you go, some things come easier as others :).

So for this set I went back to themes I had already done, like the one-line-face on the very top. Or a pop-art-face on the very bottom (due to public demand) and I also drew a boy who ended up looking like the indios in Amazonas region. At least I see him that way. Then I had wanted to draw the Queeon of Hearts from Alice in Wonderland for a while now and the blue tag was perfect for that purpose. So this was my take on her. And one face is totally monochromatic which I did on purpose, but I tried another angle and that was harder than I thought. In the end my son said it reminded him of the Titans at Attach on Titan anime, so I was ok with the proportions *LOL*.

#the100dayproject2021 – first 4 days of faces

Hello everyone! Inspired by Dee Dee Catron I took the leap of faith and joined in for my first ever #the100dayproject this year. I had been following amazing fellow crafters do this challenge year after a year and admiring their awesome videos and results, but I was always too scared to try. I was afraid I wouldn´t have the time or it would be too overwhelming. But this year I thought: oh well, I might as well try it. What is the worst that could happen? That I wouldn´t succeed? And? Who cares? It´s me challenging myself here!! I am not competing with anyone here :)!

So far I´ve finished day 10/100 or more, so I´m still going strong. If you haven´t seen what I do, hop over to my Insta Account. I´ll be sharing a result/tag every day there. I´ll gather them together here on my blog a bit later for you to see. So if you want to follow “live”, make sure to click that follow button on my Insta :).

So this was “Day 1”

A “one-line” face drawing on a pre-misted, die cut tag. Colored and drawn with Posca pens. For this video, go to my YouTube channel HERE.

This was “Day 2”

This tag was precut with a STAMPlorations die, then painted black and after that I drew the same face, like on day one, but this time with my WRONG HAND (in my case the right hand ;-)..). And again used Posca pens. Here is the video!

This was “Day 3”

For this tag I pretreated the background with Gesso, then I sketched a face on a piece of paper (very simple lines!) and after that I blocked my view and drew the face again without looking (from muscle memory/blind) onto the gessoed tag. This is so much fun and thru practise you will get better and better. Also, the results sometimes look so cool too!!! Here is the video for this tag.

And finally, this was “Day 4”

For this tag I had pre-misted the tag with spray ink in a lime green tone. I then took a good look at the tag and tried to see a form in the colorsplatter. And I did! I then sketched the face that I saw in the splodge of colour and added some detail with Posca Pens. Here is the video for this tag!

I hope you enjoyed the first 4 days of me sketching simple faces. I am by no means someone who considers herself as a talented face drawer!! So I´m just practising on a level that feels good for me and thus this 100 day challenge of sketching faces on tags works so good for me. I don´t set the bar too high and I am not expecting perfect results – if I did that, I wouldn´t have to start at all. I am just having fun and if you enjoy seeing what I do, do follow me on Insta for more :).

Have a great day!!
xxx, Sanna
