After the first 12 day recap, it was time to look back on the next 12 days on my way to the 100 Day Drawing Challenge. I must admit on some days it was rather difficult to get motivated and I think it shows in some of the thumbnails. But on the other hand, there were days where I’ve drawn like 5 different things and but none for the challenge, so I ended up with a simple one for the challenge because I was just exhausted after drawing for several hours straight. The style of emphasizing the drawing with the color red has disappeared as I have tested out new things. Overall I’m happy with the latest batch.
I hardly stop after 10 minutes which is ok for me because the time limit is to get started in the first place. So like last time, I want to highlight a few days again. First a shoutout to Day 15 and Garfield which received its own blog post. I just love the little guy.
Then I went crazy with the black on Day 17 with another one of my attempts of a self-portrait in a different style. This one was actually done first on paper with a pencil and ink before I’ve redrawn it on the iPad. Maybe I went a bit crazy with the shadows in the face.
On Day 20 I’ve drawn how I probably look like every day on my ride home from work. It was fun to draw a face from a somewhat funny and different angle and after a few tries, I even got a half decent hand.
And last another self-portrait on Day 21 this time a more realistic but still comic-style approach. People told me I look so mean, well yes I need to work on different facial expressions. Cannot look like a grumpy old man all the time.
So that’s day 13 to 24. I’m currently on day 27 so I finish today’s post here and get back to drawing.
