    Hi everyone, I’m Jen! I recently finished the Constructive Head Drawing course with Steve Huston and would like to continue practicing what I’ve learnt to reinforce that knowledge/muscle memory.

    My goal is to draw a page of head constructions a day for 30-60 minutes. As for the medium it will either be digitally or traditionally (colored pencil, ink, ball point).

    I’ll try working from photo references but want to occasionally include fanart. Every few days, I plan on doing a more rendered attempt at one larger portrait. Throughout the next 100 days I plan on taking more classes so I hope to slowly incorporate things beyond what’s been taught by Steve.

    My goal is to one day be able to draw portraits in the style of Alphonse Mucha. Gotta start somewhere 🙂 I hope that by the end of the challenge I’ll have a better grasp at drawing portraits in general.

    1/100 – wow it’s kinda nerve wracking to post when you’re not satisfied with your drawings 🤦🏻‍♀️

    I need to work on proportions and placement of the ear. Anyway, here is a page of Nancy Wheeler from Stranger Things

    2/200 – I’ve never done time poses before taking Constructive Head Drawing. I find that I like that format.

    Without imposing a time limit on sketching, I feel like I’d never actually pick up a pencil. Or never finish a sketch because there would always be something else to add to it.2/100

    Good luck meeting your goals, Jen. You turned me on to another artist, Alphonse Mucha (although I’ve seen his work before) never associated it.

    I’m glad to hear that! And thanks for the good luck. I’ll definitely need that to get through the next 96 days.

    8/100 – I switched to digital for today. It was much easier compared to previous attempts with pencils

    Day 10 – working from imagination for the portrait. I used reference for the horse but changed the angle a little bit (Dynamic Sketching class paying off!). What I’m having a lot of trouble is coordinating the colors. I really need to study colors and values more.

    Inspired by “Zodiac” – Alphonse Mucha

    11/100 – back to pencil drawings. Frustrated with how the shape of the head are coming along. Everything looks off even though I refer back to my notes form the class. It is really so much easier to draw on the iPad. I’ll keep practicing
