My first full sheet of commissioned heads for the challenge.
There are quite a few diverse heads in the submissions, but I live in a very rural, Caucasian area. I’ll skip around and draw some other ethnically diverse portraits between the commissions. Some of the people who submitted a photo won’t get their free portrait.
I did a thing and posted the challenge I was doing on Facebook. I needed 80 more references, and thought I’d do something nice for the people on my friends list. 100+ responses later (plus messages) and I think I have enough. 😂
Roll the Dice
A poem by Charles Bukowski
“if you’re going to try,
go all the way.
there is no other feeling like
you will be alone with the
and the nights will flame with
“Work” sucks about 90-95% of the time, but that 5-10% that I get to do the stuff I love…well…that’s worth it.
I don’t love marketing. I don’t love studying fundamentals all the time. I don’t love super-long hours on flash days.
But I love making art for a living. It’s worth the “work” that I do so I can have fun doing what I love.
Switching to digital is actually making these sketches take LONGER; because I’m able to correct more mistakes. 😂
My challenge of the day was a self-portrait. I just happen to be working on the 100 heads challenge AND redesigning my homepage, so it was a timely challenge!
- Finish my homepage lander.
- Write a new article or ten.
- Help as many people as possible.
- Market the way I know I should.
Check out this band…wow…
My latest work on the 100-Heads Challenge. I just keep forgetting ot update my sketchbook. 😂 I’m fallible. I’m human.
Heads 6 & 7
After messing up a hand REALLY BAD on #7, I put the drawing down and moved on. I went too dark and left myself no room to repair it.

For a client. Not the final design. Will refine tomorrow.
