Saw Toni-Renea‘s Draw This In Your Style challenge and fell in love with her cute gorgon girl, so I drew my own version instead of an Inktober. I’ve been feeling kind of uninspired by the prompts lately, so it was pretty nice finding something that did make me want to draw.
Go see her wonderful work on Insta.

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.

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.
