I love daily art challenges.
I started with the 26 days of food lettering. Then came inktober and 31 days of creating animal watercolours and my last project involved creating one penguin illustration every day for a month.
The truth is these challenges are hard to commit to and they do take up a lot of time. I even wrote a post with a few tips about it.
When Catarina challenged me to create one piece every day for a week even tough I 've been quite busy lately, I knew I had to do it.
Whenever I want to draw something just for the sake of creating, my go to ideas always seem to feature animals. I noticed it started to be my safe area so I wanted to change things a bit this time and decided it could be a good idea to practice drawing people. So that's the route I've taken.
These pieces took me around 3 to 4 hours to create each day (the one with all the faces took even longer!). I really like most of the pieces I created for the challenge and three of them were even updated to my portfolio. It was a very good experience!
