Beach girl – drawing her face 100x

5 Comments

I decided to draw 100 faces, to find the right face for my beach girl character. I couldn’t believe how quickly I fell in love with a face! It was the 9th one I drew. I did a few more after that, but I think she is the one!

I started out with 24 circles on the page – assuming I do several pages to reach 100. I only made it to 17!

I tried her face from different angles, using what I learned from Shoo Rayner – Drawing School (video “Draw characters from different angles“). I need to work on the different angles more.

I also put her face on her body. I’m excited. I feel like I’m getting somewhere.
