Hello guys, how are you? I'm so excited to be here today, except for a fun new explosive event that I just want to share with you in my Facebook group. This is your first visit to my channel. How are they? My name is Karen. Campbell I'm the founder of an amazing art school and the author of the thesis series on how to
drawa sunset, as well as my new book Mixed Media Magic, so I'm going to dive into it today. I'm throwing out the hashtag 100 funny
challengeif you decide to take it what we're going to do is every Friday I'm going to do a full demo bar tutorial here on YouTube and post it in my will here for any of you who i want to keep going but i'm also going to put this on my
facebook group which is just a searchable amazing art school.
I'll put the link on the screen and also in the description box below so if you want to join the facebook group and see what others are doing that would be awesome so I'm going to do a notice every Friday for 20 weeks, your job is to take those directions if you want or you can ignore this whole
video. Currently I do whatever you want, that's what I do, but what I would like you to do for practice is to make five faces with that indication and I want you to do it. think about doing something different with each face you
drawso maybe you have the exact same face but just do five different hairstyles or maybe you do the same face and change the lighting and so the shadows on the face and the shading is going to be different for everyone and I know a lot of you have issues with shading and shadow and reflections so what I'm going to do is if you go to the description box below I'm going to put there is a free PDF from some kind of shading i put together it's in my first book on how to draw funny fat faces it's actually in the second edition but it's been out for a couple of years it's not in the first edition but i think the Most of you for now from the second one anyway but if it's not okay because I'm going to put it in the description box you can go ahead and get that shading guide it's a PDF so you can download it and have it at home as resource and that just shows what What do you think?

I think it's nine different, like angles of shading, so the light source comes from here, then the dark comes from here, and if the course of life goes straight, you'll get shadows here, so you go through all of that, which will help inspire you. to try different shades on their faces so if you're posting your and I'm doing five I want you to do five that way there's no pressure to do one every day you can skip two days and keep following the
challengeand so don't it will be so stressful if you post your work on facebook or instagram if you want to use a hashtag 100 funny fat faces because we are going to make 100 funny faces right?

in real time for the most part. I'm going to keep all of this in real time, so I hope that gives you as many learning opportunities as possible. alright let's start your challenge this is day one let's get it right today.
I'm drawing with this amazing craft gear 1000 mechanical pencil. These were recommended to me by Jenny Manoel and she also thought I really reached out to her about this challenge because she's like a challenge and prompt expert and I was like oh I can't draw faces every day for a hundred days. I have three kids and a lot of laundry to do every day so she recommended once a week which I love that's what she does in she drew in her group you can check out the next generation art coming He's on Facebook and he does amazing art on his Facebook group so check him out thanks Jenny ok then let's draw so first we'll draw an oval.
I hold my paper like this because it's comfortable so it's not straight and when I'm doing my oval I keep my ok. I move my whole arm like you can see me right now. My arm is bent but I'm actually moving it from my shoulder and not like I'm not doing this like I want to say my whole shoulder is swinging with me so how do I make my ovals try to improve the lighting here that It's not better, it's okay and then I do it. I don't know, it's always nice to have a weird, crooked neck, right?
It's more exciting than a lollipop neck, alright. I'm going to go in from the sides for the temples, that's optional, but it makes them look a little sexier. I really don't know what the word is what you see that's not good that's ok make you erase your right hand n It's no big deal to erase weird lines trying to get into chin shape and if you need to draw a hundred ovals to start draw a hundred ovals to get started and don't even worry about it just delete them ok now I need to do it. I've got the proportions right so I'm making a line through the center like this and then I'm going to make a vertical line down the center like this now I'm going to take this line that's cutting my oval in half.
I'm going to split it again and then I'm going to take this space and split it again, okay, and I think this whole idea of Jenny saying you know how to do five variations is really cool because then she makes you do it. the same face over and over again and almost like perfect and then you're just making little changes I don't know all this practice is so good ok so eyes can do a lot but I like to make mine three in one realistic face actually it would be five in width but i'm not going to do a realistic face today i'm a Also today i won't use a reference and now i will that will definitely change but this is our first day so i'm starting slow ok, the nose will go here so I'm going to make a little oval there and then the mouth is here. and this is all in my book how to draw funny fat faces in the first one there are three in the series but this is number one and it's all there step by step for you so I'm going to start by doing these little like sloping lines on each side because that's where our tear duct will come out and I'm going to follow this line to the top of my oval I notice how flattened my ovals are, they're very flattened I think people make a big mistake as they do this circular shape, they are quite flattened, they are quite flattened.
I mean obviously you can do whatever you want, especially if they're capricious, but that's something I notice a lot and also the biggest mistake I probably see. the eyes are very close together you need a full eyeball between them so If you are special if your eyes are really big that is definitely the most common mistake and then there is only so much space between them which is not good. You have to put some space in there and it's actually better to have more space like if you're going to err on the side of not having the right space in the middle have them further apart rather than too close together ok so I'm adding these little things like tear duct hooks and then i'm finding the end of my line of the oval again and then i'm going to have them join forces now i realize this side i only have that much space and this side i have so much space , so you want to match them so bring one or bring one it doesn't really matter which one you choose but again these proportions are what make your face not look like a mess ok try to match them as best as you can face no one's is perfect even in real life so whatever close enough and just so you know many work on alcohol
markers still and there are many different brands but i bought a new set.
I'm going to test it well, so let's see our eyes, we want the eyelids. I need to cut that iris so it doesn't matter if well let me back up. you need to draw a full circle to get these eyes out ok so they can sit here they can sit here the circle can be drawn anywhere but this has to be your iris which is the brightest color the eye should be cut with already either the top or the bottom or both next to the eyelid so you can put it where you want. I'm going to put mine as a pretty dead end.
I usually don't draw the full circle anymore but I'm doing this for illustrative purposes so you can see it's a little weird also like using a stencil if you can't figure out how to do it you know use like take something you have the right size and trace it or you can get a circle template which I have too but this when I say cut so you're only seeing this part and you both see how the circles are cut at the top at the bottom ok I'm just highlighting the wrong part there and then you delete the extra bits, ok, and all this can come out.
There are a lot of different ways to draw noses that are fun but I'll go back to kind of easier let's see we'll do two little Chubby ones on each side you can darken the nostrils like this and then you can draw like your little brackets I like to call them in either side and now too cute and then you erase the rest of the bits in a cute way you can also draw like some people draw like the circle for the nose ball which is kind of cute and then you do your shading based on that and then I'm going to make these little lines that guide me right where the lips are going to start and it's pretty much in line with where my mouth is because my guidelines are correct so we want to make a V right here, widen it out, then I always draw the bottom of the upper lip next so these kind of shades that first line and then lower lip you can make yourself skinny it can make you fat you can make it start down here it can be very thin or or you can make it any width you want you can play with it even if you like to keep doing the same face and just change the mouth every time just those little little changes are what make your whole face different from each other it's so much fun ok delete some of these guidelines ok no ears i'm just not drawing here because yours are stupid and then hair everyone freaks out here. don't be scared here, it's fun, you pick the part.
I've done a lot of these videos recently so I have a lot of resources for you so pick a scalp part somewhere ok so I'll put it here. and the hair has to come in the oval of the forehead and then also up and over the top of the head and again this is all in my book mmm I'm just a bit so if you want to have bangs you can like it to fall in this circle don't be afraid to put them in your circle guys get it right so im doing some bangs for day i never do stuff and again hair has volume so this is going to come out and you can and it's going to come out of anywhere she's up and down i'm just feeling this like spikes today i don't know why i'm just for no reason alright so here it comes over and over again and maybe there's something who comes here like this literally do whatever you want so again and your five prompts maybe just change the hair every time you get good hair practice I'm going to erase her oval for the top of her head and such Maybe there's like a strand coming out here yeah, I don't know, I'm just making it up and This on the fly, it doesn't matter, it's fine and then we have to go back to our eyes and finish them off.
I think this looks a bit bare so the pupils can be small or large. This kind of thing today and again, ideally it looks a little better if the pupils are cut as well. but it doesn't really matter and then you need an eyelid that I'm going to have it's pretty small ids today so they come out of the tear duct. Today I have all the angular lines, it doesn't always work like that, but again, when you do all these facial practices, it's good practice because you can change like maybe tomorrow. have a soft you know my legs will be soft and smooth so every time you switch it just alters a lot of the expression the eyebrows start in the same place as the tear ducts so maybe she's like and I'm going to use my copics again so i'm fattening these up because i'm going to color them ok these guys are still hanging out and now i'm ready to use my copics to color her first thing i'll do is take a regular
markerand outline her nice and you can use a regular marker or you can use a thin one.
I usually like to style the hair and around the face in a darker one and then like the inner features in a finer one. i'm not sure i cared that much ok i'm changing and actually what i'm going to do is continue this and i'll show you why when i go color season i love to make such funny faces so so so so so thin ok the brows get thinner and more defined so people can go back with a white marker to add the eye sparkle or when you're doing or when you're drawing it you can leave as partfrom the open people so make sure you have some glitter in the eyes in a few spots but again you can always go back and add it and then i'll do my lashes. in the end i'm going to delete all my weird line ok another thing i don't like is that his head there looks really weird but he does one of those too late now for Lena ok i'm wearing these I'm very intrigued with these at Barnes and Noble, but you know I was treated by the fact that it says archival because most of the alcohol-based markers included in the kopecks are not lightfast and archival, you know by definition.means not They are going to fade for about 70 years so I thought it was a good investment.
I usually avoid my copics when I'm doing something in a project that, oh, I'm very concerned about duration. I won't be using them and actually writing that in my mixed media magic book as well in my chapter on types of supplies. It's like I love our phobics but I don't usually use them because I mean permanent projects because they fade. but these are not that great so these are my skin tone this is the skin tone pack and it looks like a nice variety. also tipped this is powder ok that's pretty this is what this beanbag skin is the white powder skin form um what is this platform?
I'm kind of obsessed with alcohol markers every giant stash as much as I say I stay away from them I heard them all so Coco Coco Co I don't know this is awesome and all the names are pretty sweet I think I'll do it as a midrange I think I'll go for these apricot and mocha ones, so you should always go for at least two, if not three. I could also if I want to be really dramatic. I can do three when you're shading. You always need to have at least at least two apricots. Where are you? all over her face now alcohol markers you have to move fast or you get really permanent streaks but if you move fast i have a full video.
I'm like tips for coloring with alcohol markers. I will link it in the cards to order. move fast real fast so you don't get those streaks sorry little CC and my faces are usually pretty big so it's harder to drug him to make it fast when your face areas are so big but do what best you can and every time you get a like. a second layer it gets darker there so that's ok just move this around as you can hopefully you won't get it c and also if it's a smaller drawing you can do little circular motions which tends to work a little better now It's also good. i know if you knew that or not but you don't want you don't want to go through them so much people have yelled at me to help my sharpie with blood on my face and yes you don't want to like drawing. about your sharpie lines, you want to avoid them because they will get into your drawing a bit or bleed through, so try to go around them leaving a bit of white and then this whole series of challenges will be really good for everyone. me because i have been very busy with my business but i also need practice it never goes away everyone needs to practice to hone their skills but also to stay up to date so this is really good this is great practice for everyone so now we are all set for our second layer of shading and some of these wet parts will start to wear off so you can start really slow if you're afraid to add a lot of shading just use the same color you just did again or if you're not afraid come with me, in agreement? we're going to improve this a bit so we need to shade wherever there's shadow so there's always shadow wherever there's hair falling on your face you'll have a little line of shadow there so that's the first thing we can do and then there's also usually around here and there's always cheating on the neck because the chin sticks out and then it'll cast a shadow on this neck so I'll highlight the shadow areas first okay and then the nose isn't made of lines it's actually it's made of shadow and shadow so i'm going to start oops it really looks like someone punched it in the face because it doesn't have a nose bridge because we haven't added any shading yet so i'm going to be under of the nose always shaded. as well as in that little lippy dippy so I always start with the eyes ok so the bridge of the nose is made up of our shadow and then it continues around the eye if it's the cheekbones it will go in and then I'll leave a little bit of highlight here so it's like showing the shadow and then that little triangle can stay where it is and this is probably all in the shadow because this is a pretty big piece of hair okay so even if we do one side I mean that you can start to get a picture of who she is, the side is also shaded and I like to do the shading where it's more pronounced on one side than the other because it just looks more dramatic. right and you could stop and do no more than that if you wanted to soften the shading a bit more you have so many options you could take the original color and like if you wanted to blend this because it was too much the contrast was too cool you could do that so I repeat like this What if you notice I'm p putting it like in the segue between the first and second colors to mix them up more and that's less dramatic if you wanted more drama you could draw you could pick the next color on your value scale and go and do one more pass I'm I'm short on time today so I'm going to go get some colors and fill her hair in nice so I'm about to start coloring her hair I'll just add like another strand in there this is really bugging me here but then again no it does.
It doesn't really matter, this is just for fun. I could do this all day. doing like this it's teal pink by prismacolor we can do a little line for her tear ducts and she really needs some lashes i feel like her hair needs some more scribbling too what do you think yeah one other little detail can you do the eyes to put a little shadow oh that it's too dark it's a little gray a little bit of shadow ok i think that's enough warning to start with you can always come back with a white marker and scribble some more you could have a complete and utter heyday and you have like again You can also add drama to this by adding another layer of a darker skin color ok so there you go week 1 where we have our Copic green lover that's what I'll call her my Copic green lover hope you enjoyed this and i hope you got a lot and yes i cant wait to see your prompts with the hashtag 100 funny fat faces and i really want to continue this face drawing journey s with you and don't forget to appear on the Facebook group and show me what you have I can't wait to see bye guys thanks for playing well to those of you who followed me thank you very much for sticking with me hope you had fun and learned a lot and that your instructions are excited again for your 5 for your 5 exercises you know I encourage you m Make small changes in each one and that will help you solidify the things that you are learning and to grow and improve as an artist in each thing, well, I hope that have a lot of fun, here is my exciting news that i just promised.
