As a personal fun project, I challenged myself to do 100 CSS drawings in 100 days. Today marks a milestone: the 10th day, so I decided to share the ones I've done so far (and to show off a little, I am really proud of some of them 😊)
Here are the 10 illustrations/drawings I did in the past 10 days. Click on the image to see the full illustration with the code, and click here to see a CodePen collection with all of the drawings plus some variations.
Day 1: Shark
This one was done from scratch as part of a CSS game I did last week, and it is the one that triggered the whole drawing project idea.
Day 2: Person thinking
This one, like some others from the list, is inspired/based on an illustration from Dribbble. In particular, this one is inspired by Faces by Olga Semklo.
Day 3: Hummingbird
Day 4: Face
This cartoon is from scratch and I really like how it turned out, with the condescending look and smirk.
Day 5: Monster with balloon
Another one from scratch. This one was based on a series of cartoons I did for my daughter 5-6 years ago.
Day 6: Ace Ventura caricature
And yet another from scratch. This one I started doodling without a clear goal, then the idea of making an Ace Ventura caricature popped up, but I wasn't able to get a good expression.
Day 7: Minimalist Dog
Based on Coffee Dog by Ahsan Kahn on Dribbble. I added some ears, but I didn't like the result, so I hid them later.
Day 8: Harry Potter
I did two versions of this cartoon from scratch. The one below, and another in which Harry is a bit slimmer as my daughter claimed it didn't really look like Harry Potter.
Day 9: Cardinal
Day 10: Profile
I really like this one too... even when it doesn't do honor to the original in which it is based on: Swiss Beatz by Rogie (which is 1,000-times more expressive and nicer than mine).
And that's it for now. Hopefully, there will be 10 more in 10 days 😊
