Hi-cut swimwear has been making it back into the rounds again. I wish I had a brighter red, maybe I should have used yellow.

This was an experiment, where I laid down all the skin tones before doing any line-art, and I’m still really liking the ballpoint pen as my line-art.

I feel like, my finished pieces never live up to my sketches. Or rather my sketches have more life in them.

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.

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.

Day 26

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.

Day 24

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