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.

I actually am not a big fan of macarons, maybe its the ones I’ve tried, but they are cute looking.

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.

Not the movie starring Marilyn Monroe. I recently went to Niagara Falls with my bestie, and had a grand old time. We won some cash at the casino, walked so much our legs still ache, bought delicious fudge, and ended the day at the Coca-Cola store with ice cream floats. Sadly the floats were in plastic cups, not these magnificent glasses.
Also I’m sorry for the terrible photo quality here, I’m not sure what’s going on with my camera these days, or perhaps I’ve just forgotten how to get the best out of it.
See below for a couple of photos from my adventure.

A small oasis we found
Attempted one of those adventure things, it was supposed to be darker and spookier, but my love of bright, vibrant colours betrayed me.

I feel like, my finished pieces never live up to my sketches. Or rather my sketches have more life in them.
