I use my sketchbook Sketchbook Again

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.

Flower and Romance Watercolour

Manga watercolour and Copic illustrations.

During last weekend, I decided to got back into watercolour painting. I chosen to use Hot Press 300g watercolour paper. It has a smoothing surface than cold press.

I like drawing / painting subject with a Male romance and flowers because it very therapeutic to me.

For the characters skin tones I used Copic markers pens. It colours on the paper smoothly and nicely without bleed through the paper or streaks.

I’m planning to create more romantic watercolour illustrations.

Thanks to The Daylight light box, I can easily transfer drawings into watercolour papers. I drafted two drawings on one A4 paper. Theses drawing where copied from my sketchbook.
