This is my experiment on working with male sketches.
I decided to make Dad’s Little Devils continuously so I revamped the characters and started making the story. I think I will get another blog for these strips, anyway I was away from WordPress for a period studying the character development and the story- as well as I took up a week challenge of learning how to ride a bike. I got myself a folding bike.:D
Yes, aside from the drawing I took up the challenge because I have never ridden one before. My parents are ridiculously overprotective and I have a loud mother that becomes louder when talking about doing something risky. Hence I never learned to use the bike as a child, and I put that thought aside as I grew up until last week.
I am glad to say that I can ride a bike now and it took me only 4 days to do it, yay! I also got myself a badge on my leg with this ugly bruise, but it’s all worth it!
So now I am back and will be putting up more artworks for everyone.
I’m practicing on pencil, ink and watercolor combination for future works.
I hope you like the transformation:D
This is the pencil sketch of my work
This is the close up. I used a mechanical pencil with B lead- it helps get the details better.
Here I am adding ink to put points of light and shadow.
I also added base color for the eyes, this will set it before applying water color.
So here is the close up for the skin and face shading.Then I added some shadows for her hair as well…
And this is the initial using ink.
Title: Dad’s Little Devils.
It’s a representation of us 5 kids in the house and our dad raising us.
Morrigan is the representation of my oldest sister, during her uni days she was a goth and a few years ago sported the same hair type. She has that attitude so it was fun making her into a character.
My dad- yeah, he looks like that.:D
