I’m still playing around with this kind of drawing, the slapping down of colour to create the form then going in after to add details. I’m really enjoying it so far, as I feel I can be messier in my initial approach, and it still comes out nice.

I’m especially fond of how her nose came out. I almost always seem to get the same looking nose, but this time it looks distinctive!

Happy New Year

Happy New Year, I hope you all have a great 2018.

I didn’t “sketch” this out like I normally do with all my drawings, I just grabbed two markers, a pale grey and a black marker, and went to town. I must admit I love this final effect, and I’m going to try to use it more often.

I did force myself to step away a bit, because I wanted to (and still do) go in with a fine tipped pen to add in more details but I’m afraid I’ll mess it up. So for now, she lives as a blurry splotchy hot mess in my sketchbook.

Watched How to Marry a Millionaire again today, with my mum. I always loved the glasses Pola (Marilyn Monroe) wore in the movie. Oddly enough the bath robe? she wears is also one of my favourites.

Made it, we’re done another inktober. This year was tough man, I’m kind of re-considering partaking this year, but damn I’m pleased I did it and only missed 1 day.

Have a happy halloween and a blessed Samhain!

Day 30

A single tube of red lipstick, and beside it the sketch I was working from. It’s surprising how my lines are straighter here than when I use a ruler.

Also for Inktober I’ve been working in 2 separate sketchbooks, one is an unlined Moleskine which is strictly for planning and sketches, because it can’t handle anything other than ballpoint pen and pencils, the other is a $10 sketchbook from Michael’s which is holding up surprisingly well.
