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.
0.5 mm Ballpoint Pen, Pink Pencil.
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.

Quick sketch, used a reference from my People & Faces board on Pinterest.
Purple Pencil, and Pink Pencil.
I feel like, my finished pieces never live up to my sketches. Or rather my sketches have more life in them.

I miss having long hair, I shouldn’t have cut it back in December.
…with drawing big hair. I feel like most of the doodles I do to de-stress are cute ladies with big hairdos. Not that this is a complaint, I love drawing hair.

I like winter, for it’s visuals, it creates beautiful contrasts with the white snow against pale grey skies (especially when there’s a brilliantly coloured red cardinal or bluejay). But I seriously miss the warmth of spring/summer.
