Valentine’s Day

Happy Valentine’s day! The safety pin idea seemed cute at the time. However I don’t think it makes any sense now.

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.

Day 24

My heart wasn’t really in it today. She did turn out okay considering I used not watercolour appropriate paper.

Day 20

Aside from needing to learn to take better photos, plus making a better attempt at backgrounds, this turned out nicely. I also gave her the outfit I normally wear to run errands, minus the hat and boots (I’m typically found in pointy patent flats). Also I’m going to pretend her hat is extra large to accommodate her massive amount of hair đŸ˜‰
