These are so fantastic and inspiring. I love the idea of putting a time limit on it because I spend way too long on things like this. I might have to give it a try. Thanks for posting!

Thank you for everyone's replies, it really keeps me motivated and I have a long way to go
I just posted up a blog tutorial on how I did the superhero piece if you wish to see a slightly more in depth look at creating these kids:
@LauraA Have you posted them to the forums yet? I',m sure everyone would like to see them.
@Jon-Anderson I don't choose a specific size, just whatever fits onto the canvas. The ones I have done so far have been on the same canvas, but I'm sure I will need to adjust it for other ones in the future.
Here is the latest one. I want to try and have some of the characters in groups that will use a similar color and story theme (another nod to Simona for that great idea).

@Gary-Wilkinson Just the "Nina and sausages" sketches and color studies I posted under WIPs a week or two ago. And a couple of things on Instagram. I'm working on the rendering now, but got distracted with another character yesterday. Eventually things will smooth out a bit and I'll get on a roll!
No. 4 (#3 in the superkid set though). Next 2 will be the rest of the dinokids.
No. 5 (#2 in the dinokid set). 1 more dinokid and then I will be trying out a different style

These are so cute. Great shapes and color. Both yours and Smceccarelli’s kids are so inspiring. I am joining in to make 100 kids project also. Wanting to practice drawing boys expecially. A bit low on free time at this moment, so I will Start in December.
@lenwen thank you trying to balance achieving an almost traditional feel for my work whilst remaining digital, I'm glad you like them.
@xin-li Great to hear there will be another 100 kids challenger. Let me know when you start and I will add your website or however you display your work as a link on my blog if you'd like.

These are sooo lovely!
Keep up the great work!
No. 6 (#3 in the dinokid set) I added in pink to the palette as I wanted to have the character squashing fruit and red looked too much like blood. I think the pinks gives it a more playful feel and may look at adding it to the previous dino pieces in the future.

@gary-wilkinson These are so so so great and i definitely need to start doing it too. Maybe just with observation at first but still to kickstart my kids drawing skills (or lack of)

you had me at underoos and a cape. These are great. portfolio greatness for sure. Not to mention a rowdy gang on the playground. You may fall in love with a few of these characters and make a story.
