Now for information about today's drawing prompt...
I often take pictures of my kids when they are making weird faces. I think I can use that look on an illustration someday. Ha. Sometimes it is to just capture the moment like when Erin was sure that someone had drawn the "front stoop on (her) forehead." If she tilted in her eyebrows, there was an angled line above her brow - that was the shape of a keystone. She kept frowning at us to show us and I could hardly contain bursting into hysterical laughter. Introducing my co-creator of the Doodle Day May challenge:
Your drawing prompt for today is to Make a Face.
You can grab a friend (to use as a model) or a mirror or your child and make some faces.
In your doodle, try to show in a few simple lines how the eyes change, the mouth shape changes, where the eyebrows go when you smile or frown or look surprised or angry or frightened, worried, etc...
The basic face can be a circle, oval, teardrop, square, rectangle, egg shape, ...
Draw one face.
Don't panic. I'm talking quick here - no shading and figure drawing training necessary just a mirror or a friend to make a face at you. Stick figure, cartoony, realistic - whatever you want that will be quick and easy for you.
