This post is a little late as we went out to dinner, then spent much longer hanging around than anticipated. I fell asleep on the couch and everyone thought that was a good excuse to play a few hands of poker while I was non-responsive.
Here are some recent little scribbles, experimenting with a couple of things. I’d been watching Revolutionary Girl Utena for the last couple of weeks and wanted to experiment a bit with hair!
This first picture is kinda based on some Utena fan art I found, but it’s also inspired by recent depictions of the AVCon mascot Ayvee. I’m also trying to decide on a new paint colour to add to my collection, and I experimented with paint from a sample sheet to paint the hair. I still haven’t decided on new colours to get! if you want to make a suggestion, the Daniel Smith watercolour range that I use has an extensive offering. I’m looking to get another blue and maybe some more earth tones. New colours are a tricky thing!
Some more experiments with hair and a frilly outfit kinda also inspired by Utena. Last week I bought a new white gel pen, which is a little more effective for applying highlights and covering inking errors than the old pen I used. Leaving the whites of the paper unblemished is always the most striking and effective way to depict highlights but the gel pen works great in a pinch.
