#the100dayproject – Days 71-75

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).

Day 71

For this one there is no video, just this slideshow.

Day 75

For this set I did various types of faces and also used different media again, not only Neocolor 2´s. For the first one I wanted to do a little darker, black and white type of face and she somehow turnout out to be a nurse. Maybe due lockdown and Covid19 situation going on. The second one was a one-line type of face because of the bold background which I wanted to keep.

Day 73 was full-on colour and again my dearly loved Neocolors. For the following day I wanted to try an “older” face – meet wrinkles and tiredness. And the last one has lots of Dina Wakley Gloss Spray on the grey cardstock, thus I used Posca´s, because Neocolors would not work on the glossy surface so well.

Happy drawing,

#the100dayproject – Days 66-70

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.

Day 68

For days´s 68-70 there is no video, because I didn´t have time for that. Just this diashow.

Day 69

Day 70

My absolute favorite of this set if the first one! I took more time for it, than just 15 minutes. I did plenty of shading, layers of colours and I love how the eye turned out. Even if it´s just a half face, I´m really happy with it. Also the nose turned out almost realistic and good in shape. At this point I really felt like I had found my way of drawing faces and was really enjoying the process.

For some of the faces I didn´t record a video because I was thinking that they are all pretty much the same anyway, so I just posted photos of the finished faces on my Insta and then created a diashow for YouTube. But later I again returned to recording the process, because it´s also something I might return to later after not drawing a face for a while I might need a reminder how I did it in the first place :).

And I really enjoy the softness of the Neocolor 2´s! They are my kind of crayons. It felt easier adding shadows with them, because they face in nicely and you can add depth by adding layers on top of each other.

Happy drawing,

#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!!
