Day 2 - The Thief

Yay! Day 2 of the 29 faces challenge and there are only 21 participants now. That said it is still early in the month and the lure of a challenge always seems to draw people in.

So the face for today is... A Thief I designed. No particular reason as to why (yet), but I started designing a few weeks ago and didn't look at it again until this challenge started back up. I'm trying to get better with other mediums besides sketching and digital design (which I still suck at), so this one has inked lines and watercolours. Still suck at picking and choosing colours for characters except for when it comes to eyes (well, at least I think so).

Day 2 - The Thief. Have I ever mentioned how bad I am at backgrounds?
No? Well now you know.
 Day 2: Done and dusted. Now to do the uni work that I have been putting off.

Her face didn't exactly turn out the way I wanted it to - in my other sketches she has a more square or set face. Better start to practice that as well. My friend Mitch has selected a palette for me to use for the next face, so look forward to that!

Anyway! Good luck to everyone in the challenge and have a wonderful day!

  1. She looks like a friendly and somewhat shy thief. I think the colours suit her!

  3. I like the colours, good for camouflage when stealing from museums or archeological digs to give artifacts back to rightful owners methinks :) Like the expression too, & outfit, and who needs a background when you have put in an 'invisible' one by placement & pose of body... coolio :)

  4. I agree with the others that your colors work for a thief who needs to be as invisible as possible. I like the expression on her face. She appears to lack some confidence in what she is doing.

  8. She looks like she can hear the people "in the other room" and is having some second thoughts on her ability to carry out her task. I love the expression AND the colors!

  9. I love how you have managed to show her expression with so few lines. I do love the colour of her eyes. A thief in her colours will be harder to spot so I think it’s a good thing! ;)
