Poodle Pin up

I liked her so much I finished her. The hair took the longest to do, but I’m really happy with how much they remind me of cinnamon buns. I kind of wish she had feet, but when I tried drawing them in, they just wouldn’t.

So everything with skulls, bones, and flowers like this I think I’m simply going to name with human names.
Just a human skull, with some greenery and hibiscus and plumeria flowers.

I suppose this would translate well as a tattoo design.

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.
