Prizes for the Guess the Celebrity Drawing Game!

Hello!

Fiona and I are back to bring you some drawings today!
I had to include a gif from Julie and the Phantoms because Fiona and I just finished watching it and we are obsessed with it!

Back in December I hosted a game that I called Guess the Drawing of the Celebrity. It was where my younger sister Fiona and I had drawn pictures of celebrities and you had to guess who they were. I'm so glad that so many of you guessed! If you want to check it out you can find the original game HERE and the answers HERE.

Today is the time for the prize! Rachel, Livia Rose, and Skye all tied for first place with 7 correct guesses. Each of them got to choose an actor or actress for Fiona and me to try to draw!

We were still following the rules of the game, so we were supposed to do it in 6 minutes (which got stretched a little). You'll see our drawings followed by the reference picture that we used. We both used the same reference photo at the same time so you can really see the differences in our styles. We had loads of fun, so we hope that you like these pictures! Please tell us whose you like better for each of them!

This was first time that I had drawn in 2021, so it was a little rough. Looking at my drawings I this is what I do:

Then I tell myself:


When I look at Fiona's this is what I do:
I had so much fun! Both of us did! All right, that's enough of my messing around. Let's look at the drawings!



Skye's request:

.

Drawing time: 6 minutes
Skye picked Marta from Knives Out (2019), so we drew Anna de Armas. I think that my nose is better than Fiona's, but the rest of hers is really good. She only drew the nose with less than a minute of time left, so it is impressive considering that. Mine looks angry for some reason? I don't know if Anna de Armas ever looks angry, but she does in my drawing.


Livia Rose's request:

.

Drawing time: 12 minutes (6 for each person)
Livia asked us to draw the iconic duo of Nick and Nora Charles! I was so excited that I told Fiona right away. 
"Who's that?" she asked. 
I should've expected that because she has only seen one of The Thin Man movies and didn't like it, which is the opposite of me! I still have three of the films to see, but I have had so much fun watching the ones that I've seen. So, we found a picture of William Powell and Myrna Loy. Not going to lie, while Fiona's Myrna Loy is good I like mine better. Mine looks nothing like William Powell. I think that it looks like Clarke Gable. In fact, we had just finished drawing when my mom came it. I showed her mine and had her guess. Clarke Gable. Does that mean it's official?


Rachel's request:

Going into this one you need to know some of the discussion that happened prior to Fiona and I drawing it. I was up for the challenge, but Fiona didn't want to do this one. Why? Because she loves this person and didn't want to mess it up. We did this one last so that she could practice.

Fiona, when asked do draw this person said that she would rather:


Fiona: "Wait, I need a new piece of paper."
MC: "Why?"
Fiona: "Because if it's bad I'm going to burn it."

I told her that it wasn't going to be bad. She might've burned it if I hadn't smuggled the drawing away from her so she wasn't able to. Alright, are you ready to see?

I couldn't find the exact reference picture that we used, but this is really close!
Drawing time: 8+ minutes
Rachel picked Tom Holland! This one was longer than 6 minutes because Fiona just kept going. Mine was really bad and after the original 6 minutes I was able to straighten it out in 2 more minutes then stopped. Not Fiona. Even when I took the reference picture away from her she kept doing it so I don't have a really precise timeframe.
I really like how Fiona's turned out! I just laugh whenever I see mine.



That's a wrap from us!


Thank you to Rachel, Livia Rose, and Skye! Your picks were excellent and we hope that we did them justice. Thank you for reading! Tell us what you think of our efforts and let us know if you would want to see anything like this in the future! Have you drawn any of these people? How did it turn out?

  2. These are all great! You guys are both really good artists. I cannot draw....at all, so I'm always in awe of other people's artistic talents.

    1. Thanks, McKayla! I always say that I can't draw either and my sister is the one who convinces me to do these things. Maybe we all just need encouragement!

    1. Thanks, Hamlette! I would recommend it! I am usually a lazy perfectionist (which sounds like a weird combo) and think that my drawing isn't going to be good so I don't try, but having the quick timing makes "perfection" unlikely so it's just fun without any pressure!

  7. These are, quite frankly, awesome. I 100% saw your William Powell, was like, "Clark Gable!!! but...who would the girl be then..." Haha.
    I am SO impressed with Fiona's Tom Holland. Wow.
