Wrapping up 30 Faces / 30 Days [February]

Yesterday was the last day of this challenge, and I have to say it has been really great.

Day 29

The tip for day 29 was to emulate someone’s style you admire, Well I have been very awestruck by the participants who work in ink and marker, particularly color markers. I have become very dependent on knowing I can erase… or even lift [with watercolor]. So I decided to take the plunge. I got out a set of permanent markers I bought maybe 6 month’s ago, but had not yet touched, and with just the lightest pencil sketch below, I took the plunge! I am so happy with the results… but I have to say, in working this out on paper, I used brain cells I didn’t know I had!

Day 30

The tip for day 30 had to do with overlaping and overlaying. So I drew the photo, and then drew it in reverse, changing the lighting so that both images are lit in the same direction.

And here is a round-up all the drawings for this challenge. I am so pleased with the progress I’ve made and the discipline this exercise has instilled.

I missed getting a face to draw today, so I found one on Pinterest.  Guess I’ll work that way until March 15, when the next challenge begins!
