With that new raging colouring books trend, I’ve been tempted to pick up a few for my own mindless entertainment. So here I am just brushing up on my blending abilities with pencil crayons.
Have you jumped in on the colouring book trend? If so, which one are you currently colouring? What kind of medium are you using?
Combination of Crayola, Prismacolor and Laurentian crayons.
Little watercolour warmup. Some flamingos chilling in a tropical pond. As you can probably tell I have no idea how flamingos fly.
Catrina from the movie, The Book of Life. I realize I haven’t mentioned it on here but I’ve been so in love with this movie since it came out last year. So much so I have two Manolo figurines (a POP vinyl, and a posable figure with guitar and swords), and the book of the concept art.
Yet it took me a year to draw fanart. -_-‘
Anyway, the character designs, set, etc are all so stunning in that movie! I just had the desire to doodle Catrina today.
0.5 mm Mechanical Pencil
It’s officially October! Halloween all month long!!!
I need to get back into posting daily. I don’t draw nearly enough these days.
I picture her as being a redhead, maybe because in yesteryear red hair was a sign of witchcraft.
Red pencil, Black Ballpoint 0.5 mm.
Lots of eyes, and eyelashes. Has it become obvious how much I love drawing eye makeup? Hahah. Also you can see some of my hideous fails in the top sketches.
The top sketch looks sooo unimpressed.
Also I apologize, I seem to have photographed Baby Doll (bottom right) on an angle and now she’s severely askew.
So top sketches were done with the Carbon pen (or a pigment liner, I can’t remember) and pencils; bottom left done in purple Col-Erase pencil, and bottom right in a 1.0 mm Black Ballpoint pen.
Two merlady doodles. The one on the left I messed up her hand so I ended up covering it with hair.
Can I just say how incredibly frustrating it is trying to grow your hair out! Mine grows so slowly :(
In other news my spider friend is either dead or has moved to my older brother’s bedroom windowsill.
Pencils in red and purple, 0.5 mm Black Ballpoint Pen.
His name is Fred.
This little guy has been living in my left side car mirror for more than a few weeks now. He’s been to Ottawa and back, also to Mississauga and has made several trips to the local Petsmart with me for cat food. I’m amazed he’s lasted so long. Here it looks like he’s prepping his dinner.
