Here's the line up. From Friday, July 12th 6:30 -7:00 pm est - Choose a face. Decide the medium of your choice!

Then begin to draw, paint, collage, sculpt, whatever your heart desires. Render in part or in whole. If possible, upload your progress images by Sunday July 14th 7:00 pm est.

The draw will be open for the weekend, feel free to join in and post your images any time. Also, sign ups for this project will be good for 7 days.

Well I guess I am the first person to put a final drawing here! I took the full 2 hours to complete this 4"x4" color pencil drawing from one of the ref pictures, which I cropped. After I started I discovered that I couldn't find my pencil sharpener and several of my 48 prismas had broken tips. Then I couldn't find my blender (can you tell its been a while since I used my CP's!)...so no blender, dull tips and very limited colors working on a small size image!!! Furthermore I was working on cheap paper...which would only accept 3 layers....but overall I was pleased with how it came out.

Thanks for the images Orchid! I don't do people very often, so this was good practice!

you did an amazing job on this Cathy inspite of your sharpner, blender, and who knows what else problems. You did a very good job on the fur part of her clothing. And your rendition makes her look alot friendier than mine does :D

I'm not comfortable doing whole faces yet so I thought this would be a good practice event. Thanks for joining in.

total of 2 hours 15 minutes Shouldn't have used cheap paper!!! little black specks kept getting on the paper and sticking to it so her nose looks kinda of dirty. Couldn't get it off.

and DRATS!!! her left pupil is larger than her right. How did that happen?!?!? I used a circle template so they'd be the same and I still screwed it up.... oh well.

pen and ink on a yupo sample i had on hand. 50 minutes. much easier than the colored pencils. I can mentally discect this into black and white shapes. makes it easier to render in my mind.

the more I look at the cp one i did the more it looks like a drag queen to me :D

I wasn't feeling up to doing a lot of drawing (yuck tummy owwies) and the cat was on my lap so I just did some drawings of some of the eyes that caught my attention. I totally LOVE eye make-up and am rearly ever seen without my eyeliner so i purred my way through these. If I didn't have such a small selection in my reds (only 2 colours) I might have done a page of lips too. will see though. For now, these are cp and ink

She reminds me of Druslla from 201 Dalmations.

Orchidlover I must apologize :crying:. I came in late took one look at the reference phots and ran screaming from the room. I know I need practice. I know it'll help me draw better in the end. Unfortunately my survival instincts took over.

rotflmao!!! kitaye... too true, too true. I was afraid several would have the same reaction as you. My true self wanted to do something mundane like more ORCHIDS! but I really need the practice on faces and my daughter Jenn had Kevyn's fantastic book. I couldn't resist. Perhaps you will give one a go. keep it simple. do only part of one if you'd like. you had all weekend to try.

now that you mention it my image does look like druslla. Me and my husband thought she looked like a drag queen. :D

good work gill! I like the eyes - you did a great job on them.
I gotta tell ya though.
When I finished my cp one I thought it looked like a drag queen. But the ref image you choose to do REALLY IS A DRAG QUEEN - lol :D
In the book I took the reference images from it explains how Kevyn used tape to pull back the eyes and chin and molded it to look more feminine. You sure captured that aspect of it... femininity. I wished I looked so good. wonderful job.
Glad you joined in.

Enjoyed your topic Orchidlover. I love your work as well, especially the ink one!!! That's tremendous work, greatly rendered. Well, here's mine. I enjoyed returning to a project for a change in pace. Worked on this approx 2 1/2 hours while watching TV. Still want to do one more, maybe in oils. This one is on 9/12 Strathmore 60lb (My Sketchbook..........of all things), Derwent Pastels.

You Rock Orchidlover!!! :D

Thank you Orchidlover!!! I work with these pastels just like charcoal......they seem to be so much the same to me for some reason.

excellent work!!!
you captured the gleam in the hair so it looks very touchable and those eyes - wow! wonderful come hither look.
Add the lips and the clothes and it seems as though this person will move any minute.

thanks for being a part. you did a marvelous job.

you choose one of the harder pics in my opinion because of the angle of the head. I absolutely loved her look.

you did a good job on the hair, showing the individual strands. that's hard to do. I can tell you've been practicing Liz. the eyes are good, the only thing I can think of might be to move the nose and the lips over to the left just slightly.... with the angle of the head it's hard to get them in the right spot. you did a good job of it.

Glad you got to join in.

Thanks for your comments, your too kind. I just wanted to say that the title 'peel me a grape' is a song by Diana Krall, you might know of her as she is from B.C. (light jazz)

enjoyed viewing all the entries and different mediums for each portrait was so cool--congrats to everyone on a great job.

Thanks everyone for participating in this week's Art Event. I hope everyone learned a few things about making faces.
Myself, I think I need to stick with close ups for a while :D
for some reason I have a very hard time getting two eyes on the same person to look like the belong to the same person. That's what these events are for though. practice, practice practice.

I want to apologize if anyone showed up for chat and I wasn't there. My twin grandbabies showed up for a surprise visit 15 minutes before chat time. I don't get to see them very often so I had to decide to not get on line and enjoy their short visit.

Thanks again everyone. You all did amazing work. And thanks for everyone's comments on my work.
the more I look at my blue eyed drag queen, the more imperfections I see.... might have to redo her some day.

how did you do the hair and keep it so light and soft looking?



----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

my trusty clic eraser. i left the hair for last, had plenty of graphite on the paper from working on her face, laid in a little more graphite to shape her 'do, then blended to a lite gray and basically "painted" with the clic. her hair in the ref pic was so white past the roots near her forehead that i just hinted at some fluffy curls. erased a few strands in the root area for the white hair. i kinda liked the effect of that white, white hair against the darker shades of her face--made it more dramatic to me. thanks for the comments :)

i would've never guess courtney love--that's great.

you managed to do the look in her eyes bobby. a lonesome longing.

did you sketch this before applying the india ink? nice work. and you're welcome

Nope, went right to paper, no pencil work... probably why her face is elongated, but I use to do nothing but ink in high school... till I discovered watercolor :D

Hi orchid,
Thanks to you and everyone for the kind comments. I got some good practice on this project. I'm still avoiding the eyes though, I think that's why I picked the pic's with them closed. :) I find the skin to be a real challenge as well. Had a great time and thanks for inspiring me to get the coloured pencils out.:)

I thought it was one of the more easier ones. I'm still working on my perspective. Thanks for the tip, I hadn't noticed that the nose/lips were off center. LOL!

you choose one of the harder pics in my opinion because of the angle of the head. I absolutely loved her look.

you did a good job on the hair, showing the individual strands. that's hard to do. I can tell you've been practicing Liz. the eyes are good, the only thing I can think of might be to move the nose and the lips over to the left just slightly.... with the angle of the head it's hard to get them in the right spot. you did a good job of it.

Glad you got to join in.

No it was croped that way in the photo. I tend to narrow in on Asian people. My daughter is funny. She said "She looks like me." My daughter is 1/2 asian. Very observant for a 3 year old.

Had to do a charcoal one for this project before I finished. Cropped the image in half cause my whole faces suck! vines soft charcoal - 9x12 about 40 minutes to finish. Used a chamois cloth on the edges of the hair to make it appear softer.
