29 Faces - Day 22 - 28

Well I got to the end of the challenge, it has been quite full on for me as I was also doing a couple of courses and also doing the 'I love you today challenge' which also looked at sketching every day during the month of February, mostly self portraits from images throughout my life, some of me as a child, and I have done a post on my reflections HERE.

29 Faces challenge was a great way for me to do more faces and try out different techniques, some that I really liked and some that I might not really use again.  It was also great (as it always is) visiting other blogs to see how other people have approached the challenge and find inspiration through their style and techniques tried. 

I really encourage you to take the step and if you want to see your creativity expand to take part in a challenge and start posting and sharing your work.

So here are my days 22 - 28, I am still going to be drawing on a regular basis as there is always room for growth.

Day 28
Final day, my final face for the 29 Faces Challenge.  I finished off with a fine liner and promarker pen, looking for an opportunity to grow in my use of shading and skin tone.


Day 27
Capturing older faces, and expressions, because there are so many more lines in an older face there is so many different techniques you can try.  Will do this one again, using more colour.


Day 26
A combination of promarkers and fine-liners also looking at patterns


Day 25
Playing with faces, better to spend 10 minutes a day doing a sketch than not doing anything.  I think I will use this face in a future painting.

Day 24
Wanted to do something more futuristic, then this young man showed up.  Not sure which planet he comes from, but he comes in peace!

Day 23
These were images that I also used in my Gratitude's and Celebration journal, quite smaller scale and trying to capture expressions.

Day 22
I don't draw enough men, so keeping the practice up, quick sketch to keep the hand in.
