faber castell


Lately I’ve been doing a lot of portrait sketches, using reference photos.  Here is a pencil / ink sketch I made, using a reference photo from www.instagram.com/landosroom .



More sketches coming soon!  By the way, tomorrow is July 4th, so Happy Independence Day!



I recently drew a character design of Elle from Geekerella by Ashley Poston. In the book, Elle is wearing her mother’s beautiful Princess Amara dress, as well as her dad’s captain’s jacket, which her friend, Sage, altered for her. This is my original inking of it, with my own flat lay:

I used the Faber-Castell Pitt Artist Pen XS and the Faber-Castell Pitt Artist Pen M to ink this image.

Below is the final product after I edited it in Gimp.  The background / hands picture is an image by RawPixel that I got on Unsplash ( Link here: https://unsplash.com/@rawpixel ), which I photoshopped my drawing onto, in order to have a nice presentation for the art piece.


I’m thinking of possibly doing a series of characters in a kind of edgy style, so check back for updates on that!


Until next time!
