Pretty Face

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.

Test

Trying to learn how to do underpaint  (is that a word?), this is about 2 different layers each sealed with a matte medium. The base layer is the ink shading, and the second is the watercolour tint. I’m still sorting how I feel about this technique, I need to try it more I think.

This is a rough sketch, mostly because I screwed up on inking the heart (I won’t point out where). Also my cobra’s face is a tad too long for my liking. I’m still trying to figure out this one. I’ll get there.

Also Happy New Year!

Experiments

This imo looks terrible. But, it was just a super quick experiment which is why the text is wonky and the planchette isn’t even. I’m still trying to learn how to use the P.H. Martin’s Bombay inks properly. I love their vibrancy, but I have to work crazy fast to get nice blending. I am fond of the background sploosh. The linework is really shaky because I had too much sugar today.

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?
