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.

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.

I’m having a hard time coming up with ideas for the remaining inktobers, and as a result am churning out stuff I’m not too happy with. Also I realize her ankles are abnormally small.

My heart wasn’t really in it today. She did turn out okay considering I used not watercolour appropriate paper.

Buffalo check plaid is very difficult to draw/paint. Maybe I just need to practise it more. She is wearing an outfit I own though. Most of the ladies I draw have a similar fashion aesthetic to me though.

Aside from needing to learn to take better photos, plus making a better attempt at backgrounds, this turned out nicely. I also gave her the outfit I normally wear to run errands, minus the hat and boots (I’m typically found in pointy patent flats). Also I’m going to pretend her hat is extra large to accommodate her massive amount of hair 😉
