Just was playing around in my sketchbook today… these are what I ended up making:
Howdy hey, sorry, been awhile…
But, I’ve done some sketchbooking and thought I’d share… all done today with Copic markers in my Midori Cotton notebook.
First one was done while watching a Frannerd video… she’s amazing.
This one is of a friend… sorta.
Some other fancy ladies… this set is my favorite.
So, it’s been a few days… but I am here briefly today to tell you: I got a new sketchbook, and the paper with Copic markers is just UGH… SOOOO GOOD. I came straight home from work and started color swatching. I ignored all the other important things I should have been doing, hence why it is almost 11pm and I’m just getting around to doing something with today’s post. So, here, because no post is complete without a picture of something…
speed doodles seem to be what I do lately. But soon, I’ll actually be spending some time on arts and crafts, and then you will be shocked, cause it might actually look a bit nice and artsy and all that good stuff.
Dare I say ’till tomorrow’? Oh, I dare, and only time will tell if I make an appearance.
Alright all you lovely folks… here is a drawing I did of the Shakespeare statue at the Literary Mall of Central Park. I loved Central Park, it’s much much better in Spring, apposed to the brief moments I saw it in January, so try to see it when things are green and blooming. I’m from Colorado and live in the mountains, so for me, it was nice to be surrounded by trees and green instead of buildings and people (buildings are cool, don’t get me wrong, but I’m most at home in nature, even heavily curated nature). If you make it to NYC, I think it’s well worth spending the day walking around Central Park, but to each his/her own.
I used Copic Markers, and my Pilot G-TEC-C4 pen and Kuretake Fude Brush Pen for the line work. I kept it very scribbly and sketchy, cause that’s just what I seem to do. I find, if I think too much and go too slowly with the line work I don’t like the end result, looks forced and ugh. Overall I like how this turned out, there’s always room for improvement, but, it will do nicely as one of my first “Urban Sketches” of NYC.
Today’s my Birthday…
Time flies folks.
