Primary Girls

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.

Hi-cut swimwear has been making it back into the rounds again. I wish I had a brighter red, maybe I should have used yellow.

This was an experiment, where I laid down all the skin tones before doing any line-art, and I’m still really liking the ballpoint pen as my line-art.

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!

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 26

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.
