So this year I decided to start a little experiment. Since I tried out the Inktober last year, I wanted to do one of my own. The idea came from another fellow artist Karoline Pietrowski. So the idea is that couple times during the week I would do a quick character design based off a full body picture and a personality description that is provided by volunteers.

Everyday I will draw someone (anyone) that requests to be drawn. They don’t have to be people I know, but they must be aware of the rules. Now these are the criteria:

1. I need a full body (preferably clothed picture of yourself, I know I have some funny friends out there that might test the water on this). Make sure it’s clear and I can see your face. Don’t send me just your headshot. Full body photo for reference.
2. I need a short description of your personality. For example: age, gender (yes I’m asking for that as well), occupation, etc. anything really to help me figure you out better when I pose or give you a facial expression.
3. Are not afraid or offended that I may exaggerate features that I may find to be important to shape and form.
4. Make sure to private message me on fb or email me for any questions or to provide me with the needed picture and basic information. Please do not send me long bio of your entire life. lol

Remember this is an experiment that I hope I can do each day (maybe as my daily warm ups).

Let’s see who volunteers. Thanks guys!

So this week’s ninja cafe sketches was interesting. I got caught a few times, which the person I was drawing either got up and left, or turned around so I couldnt see their faces. It was quite funny. One of the ladies I drew saw and actually offered to buy me a drink. lol Well here was this past weeks drawings. The critique I got was I needed to give more attention to hands, and when laying down ink marks to be more confident with them. Other than that, to keep on doing what I was doing. Hope you guys like em 🙂
