It has been a long time since an update. There is plenty that I could show you but I am choosing just one thing (in two parts).
Many weeks ago now I was inspired by a friend of mine to do a manga-type drawing. She didn't say "I think you should do a manga drawing." She was the inspiration.*
Manga Belle #1 - I coloured this one with watercolour paint.
Manga Belle #2 - I coloured this with Inktense watercolour pencils. I also lightly coloured the face.
Both of these pictures are rather large. Next time I will do something a bit smaller and have a go at using coloured pencils and a blending stump.
*My model really did have this coloured hair. It is a really fun colour and suits her tremendously.
PS I was working from a rather poor, quickly snapped photo of my model. One day I'd love to do a proper photo shoot. hint hint :)
