After deciding to post a compilation image with all the faces I realized that I hadn’t actually drawn 29 different faces. I only finished 26 and I’m OK with that.
Thankfully the rules of the challenge allowed for posting “in progress” images and that’s what I did for the first three faces. Had that not been allowed, I might not have made it through to the end of the challenge. I might have gotten discouraged because my drawing was going soooo slowly in the beginning (due to all the erasing I was doing ;). With practice I learned to erase faster. ha ha
I decided to post only my favorite faces. Not that I don’t like the others but I think I learned something or did something different with each of these. I drew a lot of “pretty” girls in this challenge. For my next phase, I think I’d like to try my hand at drawing the more freaky girl, like the one smack dab in the middle.
I posted at the beginning of the challenge that I had just started taking Suzi Blu’s Portrait 2012 series class. I’m about half way though it now and while I don’t want to copy her style, which I adore by the way, I sure have learned a lot from her about drawing faces and shading. For some reason, she has a teaching style that I get. Here’s a link to her ning site, if your interested: http://suziblu.ning.com/
