100 Days of CSS Illustrations (91-100)

alvaromontoro profile image Alvaro Montoro ・4 min read

This is the final installment of the 100 Days of CSS Illustrations challenge... at least the last one with new drawings –spoiler alert: there will be new drawings–, there will be at least one more post to look back and reflect on.

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 91: No-div-ember Coffee Mug

A slightly animated coffee mug drawn in CSS... and no HTML? Inspired by @jh3yy's #nodivember challenge. It started as a single-element drawing, then I tried to transform it from a coffee mug into a coffee cup. Finally, back to the coffee mug and make it a "no-element" illustration... and the video of the process.

Day 92: Beaver

Inspired by Beaver by Alyssa van de Bogerd on Dribbble. As with many other illustrations, I uploaded a timelapse of how it was done to Youtube.

Day 93: Daydreaming

An illustration from scratch. I really like the facial expression and the simplicity of the drawing... Also, this is the first drawing I didn't record in a while, and it felt a bit weird.

Day 94: Soccer field

This soccer field illustration may not seem like that much, but it has something interesting: it is also part of nodivember, and does not have any HTML tag (apart from the <body>). I will try to animate it later and have the dot/players move around... and the video of how it was done

Day 95: Little Red Riding Hood

These last few days had been kind of "busy" and the CSS illustrations have been done in a rush and this is an example of that. Still, I completed it on time and recorded the process.

Day 96: Face

Another illustration from scratch. Trying to play with colors and mixing rounded/oval shapes to make a continuous element...And a video of how it was done.

Day 97: Person working

I saw different drawings on Dribble using this really simple technique with thin lines and flat shadows and wanted to try something similar. Timelapse of how it was drawn.

Day 98: Punchline

Punchline is a new supervillain created by James Tynion IV in the Batman universe... I wanted to draw Erica Slaughter from Something Is Killing the Children, but that proved to be more complicated than I expected in HTML and CSS... but it worked fine as you can see on this video.

Punchline: a female supervillain with long hair and tons of makeup

Day 99: Man

A simple illustration of a man. I tried to add more details than usual and that made the drawing take a bit longer too... And a video of how it was done.

Day 100: Punk

...And for the last one... another cartoon from scratch! This punk-music person may not be as fancy as other drawings I've done, but I really like it. Probably one of my favorites in the 100. And a video of how it was drawn.

Extra: The end!

Yes, it is the end! That was the 100th illustration of the 100 Days of CSS Illustrations Challenge. So I did this vintage-looking "The End" message without using any HTML element (for nodivember):

Vintage looking The End message similar to the ones from Warner Brothers in the 60s
