One Week 100 People Day 1: The Protest Edition

I’m participating in the One Week 100 People challenge again this year, and this time with a new goal: to use new techniques, materials or styles when I sketch. It will likely take me more than 5 days to finish sketching 100 people, but that doesn’t matter that much to me.

I started a bit early this year, with a series of sketches of faces of protestors in the pro-democracy protest on Saturday. All apart from the girl in the brown beret (which was a warmup sketch done with Copic markers, Faber Castell Pitt brush pens and blue pencil) were sketched in the protest.

I stopped using copic markers very quickly as they soaked through the Stillman and Birn Alpha paper.

At a certain point I decided that I wanted to sketch the scene a bit more.

These were all done with a fine, hard kuretake brush pen, and Faber Castell Pitt brush pens.

Here’s a bit of the chaos of the scene. Everyone was moving all the time, which made sketching challenging.

That’s 27 people for day 1.
