Why you should do the 100 heads challenge
|Pencil sketches from the 100 heads challenges, I really enjoyed fitting the different heads together on the right
Throughout this process, I've been getting more acquainted with the possibilities of art mediums such as pencils, graphite, coloured pencils, ballpoint pens and markers. I've been playing with contrasts, experimenting with compositions and studying human expressions. There's so much to learn from this simple exercise. It even got me into the concept of face reading, which I'd like to explore a little more in the near future.
The sketches shown here are some of the earlier portraits I made for this challenge. I first started with simple pencil sketches, and then started to include lyrics from songs inspired by the portraits as you can see below.
|The model for the head on the right had an expression that reminded me of a song by Evanescence called Going Under, so I added the lyrics to it.
|Many of the models came from Pinterest, there's usually something about them that captivate me to the point of wanting to reproduce them.
