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 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.
