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.

I’m having a hard time coming up with ideas for the remaining inktobers, and as a result am churning out stuff I’m not too happy with. Also I realize her ankles are abnormally small.

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

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 😉

So I’m sure you’ve all noticed by now that I schedule posts. It’s easier for me and I don’t have to worry about my blog becoming a postless void when I’m not drawing or forget to upload photos (especially since I hate WordPress’s app).
So this lady here is the first actual drawing I’ve done in 2017, January 1st no less.
I’m just praying this year isn’t a shitshow like last year was and that I’ll find some new employment.
Ballpoint pen and orange pencil.
Some drippy lips.
