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 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.

I feel like, my finished pieces never live up to my sketches. Or rather my sketches have more life in them.

Recently finished my old sketchbook, so I had to start a new one. As much as I enjoy the fact that this cover is much easier to draw all over compared to my last one, I must say that I absolutely hate this sketchbook. The paper is not to my liking plus the binding of the book started coming apart after the first few uses. Now to be fair maybe I’m too aggressive with my sketchbooks but I think it’s because there was no ribbon or any extra support for the binding with this. Maybe I’ll add some to prevent it from falling apart but not a good move Picadilly.
Aside from hating the sketchbook, the pretty palm leaves and pineapples were both done in some metallic markers. I like the markers.
