A little break from the Christmas cards, as the last two still have to be flung at their intended victims.
The weather has been eerily warm here in Ontario the past week, so it had me thinking of pretty soft pastels and florals.

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.

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.

Quick sketch, used a reference from my People & Faces board on Pinterest.

My heart wasn’t really in it today. She did turn out okay considering I used not watercolour appropriate paper.
Kuretake Brush Pens, White Gel Pen, FW Ink, and 0.5 mm Micron Pen
I wanted to draw a third eye, and her nose came out looking soo cute.
Ballpoint Pen, Finetec Gold Ink, Acrylic Ink.
I love her hair, how it fades to a bright turquoise. Anyway, a curvy black pin up girl, who started out as a really rough pen sketch, that I decided on a whim to colour in. Hence, why there’s that mess-up line near her ankle.
