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.

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.

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.

Seems it only wants them side by side when aligned to the left. Anyway, just some sketches from my moleskine.
The lovely lady on the right has dreadlocks (hopefully that’s obvious) and the super cool lady on the left, has
a half-shaved head.
Happy Friday the 13th.

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.
Late night doodles.

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.
