Primary Girls

20180804_193245-01

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.

Doodle-dump

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.

Happy New Year!

I’m a few weeks late, but Happy Belated New Year! Also, I hope you all had great holidays.

I swear I’m not dead, I’ve just been very busy cleaning my room out, and setting up a proper workspace. Now that it’s finally all set-up (aside from my mirror and corkboard which I still need to paint), I can actually do more drawing. One of my new years resolutions was to be organized, and since I got a head start on it in December, I think it’ll probably happen.

Here’s a little doodle from December to tide you over until I get some good arting done.

I was just trying to see how changing the slant of the eyes would make different faces, I’m a little jealous of the lady on the right’s eyebrows.

Kuretake Brush Pen Review

So I recently purchased a pack of 12 of Kuretake’s Clean Color Brush Pens. Here is a review I have done of them so far.

So I first swatched all the colours to see what they looked like.  They have great pigment to them, are really bright and don’t appear to bleed through the paper (I used a plain moleskine notebook). Afterwards I played around with some doodles.  These pens create finer lines than Pentel’s brush pen, which I like. You can see with the flowers I tried blending the colours, I learned afterwards that there was a better way to blend them. The tree branches and leaves were testing brushstrokes.

Overall,  I like these pens, they’d be amazing for when I do gesture drawings.  Furthermore,  I’d like to see if I can use water with these pens, so you may see a secondary review on them in the future.

Rough Stuff

It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything here. Um, this is just some rough prep work for something I plan on colouring. I’m not very good with watercolours so I tend t practice what I’m planning so I don’t screw it up horribly on the final piece.
