Tips to make the drawing challenge more manageable
- You could collect together face reference for every day before the challenge starts
- Try putting aside some time each day specifically to focus on the drawing challenge… like you would an appointment.
- Why not try some fun expressions. No need for a straight face here!
- Your faces could be made up of collage… or even sculpture.
- You could try drawing distorted faces, for example a reflection in a spoon.
- You could draw a daily self portrait in different poses or styles.
At the end of the month, why not make a little tour video of your portraits (up to three minutes long) and send it to us?
With your permission, we may even feature your ‘junk’ on our site!
And if you know any other artists who might also enjoy this drawing challenge, why not encourage them to have a go!
Other July Challenges
For this July drawing challenge, we are challenging you to create a simple drawing ‘upside-down’, every day throughout the month of July. To clarify. We are NOT challenging you to draw whilst doing a handstand, but to draw something from a photograph that has been flipped upside-down.
For our daily urban sketching challenge, we are challenging you to create an urban sketch every day in July. It could be a quick sketch in a park, at work, a view from your window or a local building.
