Hands up who can draw 50 faces in 15 minutes?
Not I, it would seem: but I had a lot of fun trying earlier this year!
And the resulting image has turned out to be one of my best-selling prints of 2017. Bonus!
Up for the challenge?
Grab a big piece of paper, set your timer to 15 and then draw your freakin' FACE-OFF!
Instead of drawing 50 'normal' faces as I did, try make yours as freaky and fierce as possible: what way you'll end up with a wicked piece of wall art for Halloween! And don't worry about how 'good' the faces look: the name of the game is just to make it to 50.
Speed-sketching is tonnes of fun and a really great way to free up your drawing style. And whilst drawing on a time limit sounds stressful, it's actually a great way to focus and meditate in the moment. Whatever the outcome, I guarantee you'll feel exhilirated at the end!
NB: I used black ink to create my faces but black pens do the trick just fine. Next week's challenge will also involve black ink though, so pick up a pot if you want to get fully on board with Inktober!
