Days One and Two of the #100DayProject!


#100DayProject Check In!

Hello Jreamers!  This is a quick #100DayProject Check In!  In the previous post, I discussed that I am participating in the #100DayProject this year.  I am dedicated to drawing and practicing Manga for my 100 days.  I’ve wanted to learn Manga for some time now, so this is the perfect opportunity to do that. This is a quick check-in for the first two days to share my progress! You can also catch my progress over on Instagram searching the hashtag #100DayJreams!

Day One

To learn Manga I am currently working in The Manga Fashion Bible by Christopher Hart! I start from the beginning and simply draw the basic shape of the head and fill in a few small details like the eyes and ears.  This probably took me 15 to 20 minutes to draw and tomorrow I can move on to filling out the rest of the sketch!

Day One

Day Two

For day two I flesh out the sketch with all the little details, adding her hair and outfit!    This process took maybe 20 to 40 minutes or so to complete.  I think for the most part I will just stick to sketching and save the coloring for when I have some spare time.  So far so good when it comes to my #100DayJreams!  I am excited to see how I progress on this little journey!  Thanks for joining me!

Introduction to the #100DayProject!

Introduction to The #100DayProject!

So I am participating in the #100DayProject this year! I remember watching Gretchen from Let’s Get Inkie talk about and participate in this project last year and I was intrigued. I adored her personal project where she spent 100 days writing letters to her son.  When I saw her introduction video for this year’s #100DayProject, I knew this was my time to jump in and participate!

Learning Manga

I have mentioned in my YouTube videos how I am interested in learning Manga and how to draw it. I’ve bought several guidebooks on clearance and have yet to really sit down and work in them. So for my #100DaysProject, I am dedicating myself to drawing and practicing drawing Manga for at least 15-20 mins a day. I will periodically check in on my YouTube channel, Lilac Jream.  The bulk of my posts, however, will be on Instagram.  You can catch me over there and my #100DayProject posts will be under my personal hashtag #100DayJreams!
