Illustration Friday: triangle

I am trying to get back to more basic illustration, and one of the best ways for me to practice this is with Illustration Friday. When I saw that this week's prompt was triangle, I instantly thought of a couple becoming a family with the birth of a child. I have a new nephew, and have been enjoying watching my brother and his new family!

Blue Girl

Blue Girl was done wit Pencil and Watercolours.  I wasn't crazy about the pencil, it really muddied everything. But all in all, a successful experiment - I liked the placement of her eyes, and how her face turned out.

Spring Cleaning

I drew this as a journal prompt for Journal 52: Spring Cleaning.  I was having fun with my copic markers - I have been working on faces quite a bit lately, and am really enjoying playing with the facial tones, blending color combinations.  I usually work with a fine black liner, but decided I would see what would happen if I just worked with the pens alone.  I did my preliminary sketch with a prismacolor water soluble pencil in rose, which blends so nicely into the copics more than a regular pencil would.  I love her side smirk!
