Pencil Crayons

With that new raging colouring books trend, I’ve been tempted to pick up a few for my own mindless entertainment. So here I am just brushing up on my blending abilities with pencil crayons.

Have you jumped in on the colouring book trend? If so, which one are you currently colouring? What kind of medium are you using?

Lots of eyes, and eyelashes. Has it become obvious how much I love drawing eye makeup? Hahah. Also you can see some of my hideous fails in the top sketches.

The top sketch looks sooo unimpressed.

Also I apologize, I seem to have photographed Baby Doll (bottom right) on an angle and now she’s severely askew.

So top sketches were done with the Carbon pen (or a pigment liner, I can’t remember) and pencils; bottom left done in purple Col-Erase pencil, and bottom right in a 1.0 mm Black Ballpoint pen.

It’s June 1st! We’re halfway through 2015 and I’ve accomplished nothing!
Or at least that’s how it’s feeling.

These are a few things I doodled between paying projects. Sort of as warm-ups and sort of as experiments (I’m trying to get coloured pencil blending down since it’s been many years since I’ve using pencil crayons).

The Spanish Fly on the far right started with great potential but fizzled into an overzealous ugly mess. I’ll try him again some other time.

Anywho, I hope you all have a happy June 1st!
