Managed to make something I’m happy with. This has been a final product of the many tools I’ve been playing with. The jacket is washi tape, all the colours are a mix of Copic Markers and Kuretake Markers, and the line work is all done with a ballpoint pen, and I could not be happier.
By the way it looks warped, because I took a photo of it on an angle, and her head looks even smaller because of it, but I’m still very pleased.

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.

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 saw this done by an artist on Instagram, and I wanted to try it.
I ordered some really pretty washi tapes from eBay, and went to town, the one above is my third attempt, and I think it looks the best so far, the two below are my first two attempts.
I love this method for adding patterns, like what you’d find on clothing. I have yet to do
a final looking piece to see how it would all look finished, but with these test runs, I’d say I have a pretty good chance of a really nice effect.
I used the Slice knife to help me cut the tape into the right shapes. I did find the ballpoint pen I used did not write well over the tape, so I’m curious to see how my acrylic ink would work over it.
Don’t be surprised if you see more patterned washi tape in my pieces, it’s really easy to work with.

Quick sketch, used a reference from my People & Faces board on Pinterest.

I miss having long hair, I shouldn’t have cut it back in December.
Its been a few years since I’ve done any digital colouring. Its not the greatest, but I still enjoy the outcome. Rough sketch is lower down.
