I’ve been out with a repetitive stress injury in my neck/shoulder, so I haven’t been drawing anything, which has also led me into an artistic funk, and quite honestly uninterested in much.
However, since the injury seems to be healing a bit, I managed to crank this out. Mind you, this is one of about 20 sketches, none of those turned out where I was happy with them, but this is the best so I’m sharing.

Some pretty ladies, done using the Copic Sketch markers in the set “Primaries”. I used Pilot G-TEC-C4 pens for the fine lines and details.
I realised after the fact that I missed an opportunity to make my sunshine girl darker skinned, but since I was using just 2 markers for each face I think it’s okay for now, but I want to definitely do a sunshine girl who’s darker.

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.

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!

A couple of doodles from the other day. Nothing special, also it looks like she has four ears up there, but there’s only supposed to be the two coloured in.
