At first it felt awkward as I haven’t done this level of drawing in my sketchbook for a while. I started off drawing and writing then gradually drawing more my characters (often Yaoi drawings) with ink and marker pens.
I used anime screenshots as references. They looks like panel in comics. I thinking maybe that what I can work with just simple box panels of imagery. The images already tell the story.
The quote I created worked, “drawing is playtime” it has made me look at drawing relaxing and fun. I have been reading ‘Street Sketchbooks‘ and it has inspired me to draw and be creative. I’m going with the flow with my drawing to see what Ideas and drawing I create.
The often I draw, is the more often I get into drawings and feeling the organic process.
It great keeping a sketchbook because It can be very personal and a safe place to explore ideas and fantasy.
This year I’m not going to do the inktober challenge. But I’ll still use ink. In fact i want to use up my ink.
I created another watercolour romantic illustration. I like painting flowers with purple hues such as lavender or lilac.
I like Purple, it is very calming colour. I get a calm feeling painting with certain colours. It helps to reduce stress. I was going to buy a specialised colour from Daniel Smiths but the winsor and Newton Cotmans Paint are great quality for watercolour painting.
I’m including Coptic marker pen on my watercolour paintings. Ink, marker pens go well with watercolour, in fact anything can go with watercolour. I might invest more Copic markers and coloured inks. the colour inks are good for colour in cloths without creating streaks.
