I’m continuing to sketch each morning…and sometimes evenings too!
I am thankful that I have pickup up my pens and pencils and began making marks again. There is something about this nearly meditative activity that I find so relaxing. Once I get into the “flow state” time seems to pass unnoticed, my mind releases any retained stress and I focus solely on the subject.
This past week I was introduced to the work of Ahmed Aldoori. He is the artist behind the 100 Heads Challenge. This is a challenge to draw 100 heads in 10 days. I’m not participating in the challenge, but, researching the challenge led me to his Pinterest where he has a board of reference images dedicated to the challenge. The selected images are wonderful references and I would recommend any of my readers to check it out if they are interested.
The sketch below is from one of his reference images, I will definitely be doing more!
This sketch was created using 2H, HB, 4B, Tombow Mono Zero eraser, & kneaded eraser.
Thanks for visiting!
