Pencil Crayons

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.

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.

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.
