Don't worry if you haven't had time to join in, it is not a problem you can still link up your faces as normal whether they were inspired by or not!
Remember to please make sure that:
- The face artwork is yours, any stamps or templates you use to build the face should be designed by you, just as with the usual #ShowYourFace.
- The person(s) inspiring your work is part of the #ShowYourFace community, but they don't have to be a regular linker.
- You name the person or people that inspired your work and link to them.
- You link back to the link blog post here on my blog for that week, just as with the usual #ShowYourFace.
- Don't forget it is optional!
For anyone new here, this is a regular place to come and inspire, be inspired, but above all to share our portrait progress week by week. Every Friday at 10 am (BST) a new Show Your Face blog post goes live with the linky to add your blog post or online gallery picture to with any portrait work you have been doing.
Your face can be drawn, doodled, painted, stitched, be made using any materials and can be any style, all I ask is that it is your artwork. If you use templates, stencils or stamps to build the face anatomy, then they should be ones you have made yourself and not someone else's.
Finished pieces, works in progress or retro posts (i.e. older works, not from this week) are all welcome, so come join in and spread the word on your blog/social media outlets. Use hashtag #ShowYourFace if you like!
Looking For The Blog Button?
If you want to wear the blog button with pride then hop on over to Show Your Face 31st July 2015 to grab it and there are instructions on how to put it on your blog there too.
My Share This Week...
This week I've taken my inspiration from Kissinia from Blue Birdie.
I love watching Kissinia's art journey on her blog and via Instagram, she has a creative vision of the world that I just adore. So for my #ShowYourFace this week I went for one of her people studies from January this year and did a loosely sketched study of people's faces on a train done with Derwent Graphik Line marker and watercolour.
The first thing I notice when doing this is that you don't see people's eyes, they are looking down, reading, looking at their phones and doing everything they can to avoid eye contact, well at least that is the case on the tube in London.
Ok that is me this week...
Over To You...
Link your faces artwork and spread the word on your blog and/or social media, hashtag #ShowYourFace and/or #ShowYourFaceInspiredBy. Please do let anyone you think would be interested in sharing their portraits know about our community here.
Catch you later Face-Artinators
