29 Faces in May | Day 2

Day | 2
Mediums | Stabilo Marks All Black with water, White Pastel
Time | 40 minutes

Not going for pretty in this challenge, as you can see in my first two.  Focusing on exploring unique and different facial features, head shapes, etc.   I am curious to see how different I can make all of my faces look from each other, or if a common style will emerge.  My favorite artists have such a recognizable style so that when I see their work show up on facebook or instagram (I’m ‘DigAng’, by the way), I know it’s theirs before even noticing their name.  I feel like I haven’t found my style yet – and I’m so anxious to get to that point of my work being recognized as mine, like a signature, without having to read my name.

My mom says she looks like an Indian girl (love the thought of exploring those features more).  My nephew, Enzo, saw her and said, “wow, you’re really good!”  My niece, Gianna, saw her and said, “she has BIG cheeks!”

I shall call her, ‘Cheeky Indian’ :-)

    Actually, she reminded me of that mother in the very famous photo of the Depression-era. In that photo, there’s a weariness to the face, but a light in the eyes. I can see that here. Thanks for sharing.

    Very interesting post. Yes she looks a bit Indian, but I noticed the emotion first… like she is waiting for an answer? A bit sad?
    Her mouth is beautiful.
    About style… well, I have been drawing since forever and I don’t think you can tell all of my art like coming from me lol
    I love to go in every direction, that’s probably why :o)
    Although for my ACEO I try to keep it more together
