A Bad Mood

dav

I’m not the greatest at drawing expressive faces, but I think hers is saying “Piss Off” to someone. Which kind of embodies the mood I’ve been dealing with for a couple of months now (mostly caused by the dumpster fire I work at).

I just haven’t been creating because of it, and it’s making me upset because I can’t create. Also unless my efforts to create change for myself work, I likely won’t be contributing much to Inktober this year which makes me quite sad.

Happy Inktober!
Here is where my brain goes when I think of tranquil, the sounds of a light breeze through the leaves, next to still, calm waters.

I missed day 1, because I chose to colour a piece that did not need colour.

I’ve been out with a repetitive stress injury in my neck/shoulder, so I haven’t been drawing anything, which has also led me into an artistic funk, and quite honestly uninterested in much.

However, since the injury seems to be healing a bit, I managed to crank this out. Mind you, this is one of about 20 sketches, none of those turned out where I was happy with them, but this is the best so I’m sharing.

Primary Girls

Some pretty ladies, done using the Copic Sketch markers in the set “Primaries”. I used Pilot G-TEC-C4 pens for the fine lines and details.

I realised after the fact that I missed an opportunity to make my sunshine girl darker skinned, but since I was using just 2 markers for each face I think it’s okay for now, but I want to definitely do a sunshine girl who’s darker.

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.

Practising skin tones, I saw a 55% coupon at Michael’s today, and got excited, I was able to save some money and buy a set of Copic Sketch markers, obviously I picked up the skin tones set. And got home and started to get to playing with them to see how to include them with my other mediums.

I went a little overboard on the reddish blush on the above left’s nose, and her eyebrows >.< but she’s still cute.

The one on the above right, was done using only Kuretake Clean color pens, and the one above left was used with a combination of Kuretake and Copic.

Hopefully I can use more coupons to build up my own Copic collection, or at least that’s what I plan to do.

Also the first three, I used my trust ballpoint pen for all the line work, and I have to admit, I am really preferring it to the liners I typically use. I did add the liners to bolder parts like their eyes, and lashes, but for the most part the ballpoint pen seems to keep the feel I want my stuff to have.
