Both the 29 Faces challenge AND the #100DaysArt 5 min faces have officially come to an end. Â I am still drawing faces every night, however. Â I’m still drawing 5 minute nudes. Â NOW I’m starting 5 minute hands. Â Once you start, it gets very hard to stop. Â Anyway, I did a flip through video and a quick demo of the 5 minute face. Â I also answered a few of the questions that came up from viewers and twitterers. Â You can see the video here:Â http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qyoP0luC6Wo
Last week on The ClassroomÂ I finished up working on a painting of a large face. Â 26×37 acrylic painted on an expired wall calendar. Â Inspired by the hot young lady at The Dollar General that winked at me, I named it “Winker”. Â If you’re the hot young lady and you’re reading this… Girl, I’m old enough to be your much older brother…. Â <grin>
This week on the classroom, I promised to do a step by step on how I draw heads and faces. Â We’ll cover the basic rules and why I don’t usually follow them. Â I’ve made you a VERY basic PDF so you can follow along and share if you like. Â You can download it here:Â Drawing the Basic Human Head
The little girl and I are becoming quite popular at the cafe. Â All of the folks file by to see what she’s drawing. Â I guess it’s more accurate to say that SHE is becoming quite popular… Â I’m just the guy that steals her bacon.
