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 actually am not a big fan of macarons, maybe its the ones I’ve tried, but they are cute looking.

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.

Attempted one of those adventure things, it was supposed to be darker and spookier, but my love of bright, vibrant colours betrayed me.

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

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.
