Avocado

It’s been over a month since I last posted. I want to say I’ll try to post more frequently, but if I’m being honest I will more likely disappear into the void again.

Avocados make me think of summer, even though I eat them year round, they feel distinctly summer-y, and I’m just praying winter is over and done.

A little more subdued in colour, from my normal stuff. I usually live for bright, blinding colours, but it wouldn’t have suited this little guy.

Also I cannot rave about how much I love the Kuretake Clean Color Brush Markers. They are amazing! The blend so nicely, and create such a beautiful watercolour effect, while being easy to use.

Pretty Face

I’m still playing around with this kind of drawing, the slapping down of colour to create the form then going in after to add details. I’m really enjoying it so far, as I feel I can be messier in my initial approach, and it still comes out nice.

I’m especially fond of how her nose came out. I almost always seem to get the same looking nose, but this time it looks distinctive!

Happy New Year

Happy New Year, I hope you all have a great 2018.

I didn’t “sketch” this out like I normally do with all my drawings, I just grabbed two markers, a pale grey and a black marker, and went to town. I must admit I love this final effect, and I’m going to try to use it more often.

I did force myself to step away a bit, because I wanted to (and still do) go in with a fine tipped pen to add in more details but I’m afraid I’ll mess it up. So for now, she lives as a blurry splotchy hot mess in my sketchbook.

Day 30

A single tube of red lipstick, and beside it the sketch I was working from. It’s surprising how my lines are straighter here than when I use a ruler.

Also for Inktober I’ve been working in 2 separate sketchbooks, one is an unlined Moleskine which is strictly for planning and sketches, because it can’t handle anything other than ballpoint pen and pencils, the other is a $10 sketchbook from Michael’s which is holding up surprisingly well.

Day 27 – Poison Apple

I’ve always loved and wanted one of those poison apple mugs from Disneyland. One day, I will get one. For now, here’s a poisonous candy apple.
