One Week 100 People: All Done?

Day 4 of the One Week 100 People. I think I am at 100. Loose gestures is all I had the focus for in a week with so much going on outside of sketching. Sketched these this morning while waiting at the orthodontist’s office.


I’m pleased that for the most part, I put away my favorite sketching tools this week: not much color used in this set of 100 and I only used my brushpen and Sailor Fude nib pen on one day. This is something I want to do more often: take a break from a favorite brush or pen and just draw with a very basic tool. It exposes my drawing in a more barebones sort of way and makes me work on aspects of it that might get covered up by a tool I use well.

It’s not the end of the week yet, so if you have a ways to go, you still have time. Remember, you don’t have to work form life. Magazines, video, photographs, TV are all great sources of inspiration.

    Thanks for this! Love your people. I drew from reference this time too and I have to say I actually got further this time than last time and I think I may be better able to draw ppl in real time better because I did this challenge

    Drawing from realistic statuary is fun. It’s 3D but they don’t move and don’t mind if you stare. 🙂

  5. I love your work and I have to let you know that I’ve found your 100 People drawings one of the most helpful things I’ve seen here. I joined in last year with the challenge and found it challenging, mainly because I got so into each drawing it took a lot of time and energy I didn’t really have. You have done your 100 (congratulations by the way!) in this lovely loose, exploratory way, not painstakingly drawing for hours, and from what you’re saying you’ve learned a lot and discovered aspects you’d like to work on. Which is the best possible outcome! You’ve inspired me. Next year I’m going to have a go, having not taken part this year, so thank you Suhita.
