She’s ready and waiting for the shit to hit the fan, also I hate how Instagram cuts off long skinny drawings.

Day 27 – Poison Apple

I’ve always loved and wanted one of those poison apple mugs from Disneyland. One day, I will get one. For now, here’s a poisonous candy apple.

Crystals

Today I opted to draw something I’ve never had an easy time drawing, crystals. I’m very pleased with how this came out, and am excited to draw more in the future.

Trying to learn how to do underpaint  (is that a word?), this is about 2 different layers each sealed with a matte medium. The base layer is the ink shading, and the second is the watercolour tint. I’m still sorting how I feel about this technique, I need to try it more I think.

Kuretake Brush Pen Review

So I recently purchased a pack of 12 of Kuretake’s Clean Color Brush Pens. Here is a review I have done of them so far.

So I first swatched all the colours to see what they looked like.  They have great pigment to them, are really bright and don’t appear to bleed through the paper (I used a plain moleskine notebook). Afterwards I played around with some doodles.  These pens create finer lines than Pentel’s brush pen, which I like. You can see with the flowers I tried blending the colours, I learned afterwards that there was a better way to blend them. The tree branches and leaves were testing brushstrokes.

Overall,  I like these pens, they’d be amazing for when I do gesture drawings.  Furthermore,  I’d like to see if I can use water with these pens, so you may see a secondary review on them in the future.
