Introduction

It is inspiring to see how many creatives embark on this journey. I wanted to deepen my drawing skills and challenge myself with 100 days of creative work. I chose vector illustrations done in Adobe Illustrator and later I switched to simple raster drawings done with procreate iPad app.

The process

  1. The first drawings were random topics. After seeing the benefit (highlighting the beautify and fexibility of human body), I focused only on sports.
  2. Each drawing started as a paper sketch made in the morning. Paper because it gave me the freedom to rapidaly iterate over the shapes.
  3. In the afternoon I revisited the sketch, if I still liked it, I scanned and re draw it in Adobe Illustrator.
  4. The last step was to share on social media with people who knew about my challenge.

Lessons learned

  • Magic happens when you perform an activity over and over again. In my case I became very fluent in sketching and using AI.
  • I was a bit late in this game. Many other people did it before me, therefore it was hard to get feedback.
