94/100. That’s where I’m at, nearly 2 months past the start date of my 100 Day Project.
Some would say I failed. That I’m a flake for not finishing.
But seriously here. I drew 94 faces. NINETY FOUR.
In a span of slightly over 100 days. I’m far from an expert at realistic portraiture (not that I was attempting that to begin with ), but I can draw a pretty decent face whenever I want, straight on, 3/4 and profile. If you count the faces I doodled on my desk pad, I probably got the whole 100.
I did achieve what I set out to do, and that was to challenge myself in a way I haven’t before. So what if I’m 6 short!
The ‘last’ face (so far… I think I’ll go ahead and complete the 100 just for continuity’s sake) that I put up on Instagram was one I drew in a rare kid-free moment on my vacation in Greece this past summer.
I think I’m completely over my phobia of signing on to challenges. And besides. I’m not competing against anyone (neither are you), so if I “fail” at something I decided to do for myself, who gives a shit? As long as I get out of it what I intended to begin with, I call it a success.
