I screwed this up so many times that by the time I got to the shadows and highlights, I went "F this" and just started drawing without a plan. More talented artists can probably tell. I was pretty bummed too since I worked so hard on the line art. PLUS!!! my colorless blender ran out (you can probably tell where).
First, OMG HER SKIN...note to self, Fruit Pink is NOT a normal skin tone. My attempt to salvage it seems to have made it passable, though. She's just gotten a tan, that's all...
This is the third picture I've made with my Copics, so that's why I kept going with it--it was a learning experience. Other things I learned:
1. Always start with the shade you think is too light
2. You can blend with !other colors! not just the colorless blender.
3. White acrylic over red marker = NO
4. But you CAN draw in pencil over marker and erase it without fading the color.
So WTF is Sailor Ice Cream Scoopers you ask? It's some RPG that my friends and I created but never played when we were 14 or something...hell I don't know, that's like 10+ years ago. YES HER HENSHIN WAND IS AN ICE CREAM SCOOPER. But I don't know why she still has it since she's already transformed.
Oh and if anyone wants to know, the background at the top is not marker, but chalk pastel.
And yes, I know that I apparently forgot how to draw hands.
