29 faces FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions:

What is 29 faces?

How do I add my link? (This option has been discontinued BUT please click on the tabs in top menu ⇈  to enjoy thousands of past participants! ♥)
Pleas click here to see how-to post. You only have to add your link once that way.

Are there Prompts?
Yes, click HERE for newsletter and a free PDF list

Is it a painting a day challenge?
Yes, but you can create in other techniques and mediums if you want to. But mainly painting and drawing (including digital)

Do I link to the blog every day I post?
No, if you follow instructions and use a tag, you only need to add your blog link once.
*In the FB group and the page you can post every day.

Can I join late?
Yes! Definitely! Work as much as you can and have fun.

Is it only in February?
No, we also go crazy making faces in September, starting on the 1st.

Can I paint/draw a political/current social event's person?
Not for this challenge. You can always create whatever you want in your own feed, but not as part of this challenge, simply to keep things friendly and safe or arguments and disagreements.

Do you have more challenges?
 Yes. I run random challenges sometimes, and I have some other recurring like "June Guys", "Hands in April", and sometimes challenges about Frida kahlo in July or in October, along with "Dia de los Muertos" art. And every once in a while a mini challenge honoring a famous personality if they pass away when we are running the 29 faces.

Can I participate if I make "insert material here"....?
Yes! anything goes. Paint, print, collage, digital, sculpt... If you are interested in an unusual material, or something well known but new to you, go ahead!

Do you have/offer samples to test?
I do on occasion. It is not necessary to buy it, but I get asked so many times that I put together a variety of paper and a document with ideas to try. I will offer a kit for those interested in trying, upon request and for a small charge.

Can I join if I don't know how to draw/paint?
Yes, every level is welcome. Every person participating has a different goal, so knowing a little or a lot doesn't make a difference. You will be in a group having fun, and each member will be doing their own thing.

Do you teach?
Yes, check my online workshops here and my free video channel here.

Why can't I link here my FB?
People that are not in FB cannot see the posts, but there is a group and a page to share there if you click here

Can I link with my "insert site name here" blog?
Basically yes. If you can add tags/labels, and the site lets people comment, then you can add it. However, if it is a site that only lets members post, then you will not get as much interaction from non members.

Are animal portraits ok?
Well... Yes and no. I used to let people include animals, it is a great exercise, but this is after all a human face challenge. So, you can make an animal or two, also fantasy animals, but not the whole month of realistic pets, please. However, objects with a face, humanoids and fantasy faces are fine.

Is there anything to eat?
I hear this question so often, I had to include it. lol ...yes, in the kitchen! :o)
