Friendly Faces Day 5

As predicted I am already winging it. I used a reference photo from Sktchy but since the Prompt for today is “round,” I made the girl’s head round instead of oval.

Friendly Faces #3

Here is my third Friendly Faces sketch. The idea of this challenge is to create characters and I wanted to use gouache for this so these are starting out leaning towards portraits but I know how they’ll look as the challenge goes on, lol. They’ll be characters all right. Lol.

This is in my homemade sketchbook made with Stonehenge paper, using gouache and watercolor pencils.

Friendly Faces

I am doing the 50 Friendly Faces Challenge. This is actually Day 2 and I found out about it today so I’ll double back on the end to do Day 1.

Today was mustaches…I am using this challenge to practice my gouache skills. This image from my sketchbook has not been digitally touched up.

Firefly Two Page Spread

Here is a two page spread from the Firefly story by Zoë Tucker. I started to do the whole spread in color but I really liked the black and white sketch that I did, especially after I blew it up to actual book size. I tweaked the sketch to a final drawing and added the firefly and some creatures and this is my mixed color and B&W version.

I will probably finish the color version another time…..
