10 Little Girls All Lined Up in a Row . . .

# 11
(irregular shapes inspired by this Love)

Still working on my 29 Faces . . . and as of today, I only have 8 left to go (eeee) . . . .

It's been quite a challenge; not only in finding the time to sketch on a daily basis, but also in finding a variety of expressions, techniques and hair styles to play with. I'm trying to learn as much as I can throughout the process, and am really trying to stretch myself along the way. At this point, I'm working less on copying the masters (as I did in this post) and more on finding new ways to express "my style" of whimsical girls. 

Here's what I've done thus far (all of which has been posted daily on Instagram):

# 12, 13 & 14
(Catching up)

#15
Going for a loose hand, hash marks and whimsey

#16
(Inspired by a piece I did last year following this Beauty 
which BTW, I dislike very much, but for the sake of Bravery am still posting ;)

#17
(It was my Birthday)

#18
Little Alien Girl

#19
Playing with different hair styles here. 

#20
(It was a hard day ;)

#21
Another girl from my "Just be You" series

That's me. Caught up. And since it's Sunday, I'll link to the lovelies at Sunday Sketches as well. 



Thanks for taking a peek,
Kristin xo

I always love your girlies and am really drawn to #20 - the sad one. Sometimes we just need to let the melancholy girls out too. . .

Terri Corona said...

I love getting to see so many of your girls at once. Love them all - especially #21 I think, it has a very Alice in Wonderland feel to it, which I love. And the birthday one as well, I hope you had a wonderful birthday. We've almost made it!

I love it when you line up all your beauties here after a while, even though I've already seen them on IG. You get such a great feel for the changes you make. Can't wait to see the next lot.

Cameron said...

Well, Hope you had an awesome day, Birthday Girl!

Good for you keeping up with this....a daily challenge would drive me batty!

I love all your experiments and risk taking. You are awesome!

Terri Corona said...

Thanks so much for your lovely comment, but never feel like you're a bad friend - there are never enough hours in the day, and we're all just barely hanging on! We all know we're out there supporting each other, even if we don't always have time to express it or keep up with every post. Besides, when you do comment it's always so thoughtful...

Janelle said...

I love all of your girls. They all have so much character and their own beauty. I hope that you had a wonderful birthday.

Carmen said...

Hats off to you getting one done every day. They are so definitely your gorgeous style too :-) What will you do at the end, will you do a kind of final piece after all your experiments?

Happy belated birthday, hope you had a lovely day.
