Show Your Face – Focus On Eyes

Hey Facers, time again to link up any portrait or face drawings, paintings, sculptures, stitching, doodling that you have been doing. We do have a ‘Focus On Eyes’ theme running this month and feel free to use the theme prompt in any way you fancy.

First up the admin…


  • Focus On Eyes – January 2016 (break out of our normal practice and try different styles of doing eyes such as traditional, cartoon, manga etc. As suggested by Susana Magenheimer)
  • Inspired By – March 2016 (pick fellow Facers to inspire our work this month)

Feel free to let me know if you have any more themes or ideas for Show Your Face.

Don’t forget:

  • Show Your Face is a community link up for portrait work in any style or medium.
  • the aims are to share, learn, practise, inspire, and be inspired.
  • to make sure that the face artwork is yours, if you use any stamps or templates to build the face they should be designed by you.
  • the link is open from 10 am (BST) every Friday and stays open for a week, so link away.
  • finished pieces, works in progress or retro posts (i.e. older works, not from this week) are all welcome.
  • to link back to the link blog post here for that week.
  • Spread the word on your blog/social media outlets and use the #ShowYourFaceFriday hashtag in social media.

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…

In last week’s Show Your Face I used the theme to have a look at the eyes I’ve been drawing, I did a kind of eye ‘stock-take’ as I called it! Having done that I could see where my comfort zone was when I draw eyes, so this week I tried to break out of my comfort zone a little and tried these HUGE stylised eyes. She is done using Prismacolor pencils.

Over To You…

Link your faces artwork and spread the word on your blog and/or social media, hashtag #ShowYourFaceFriday. Please do let anyone you think would be interested in sharing their portraits know about our community here.

    WOW. Great reflections on the huge stylized ayes, Kim. I've never tried this style.

    Maybe youve already had these suggestions for future challenges, but here they are anyway….we could perhaps focus on showing emotions in faces. In a separate challenge, we could look at heads in different positions, orientations.
