Magenta Skin?

9 11 2011

Took a day off today and found some time for a couple water color sketches. They were pretty fun, though I’m getting upset about my scanner, because it’s TERRIBLE. Maybe tomorrow I’ll take a photo of the pic below because my scanner blew out the colors and altered them. Grr.

Random girls with cool eye makeup

 I have no idea who these people are. They were from a photo on the Folio Weekly site (not my photo!). I liked that they had fun eye make up and reverse face shapes (broad with convex nose and thin with concave nose).

Fan-dancing girl?

 This is from a photo I took earlier this year. I wanted it less cartoony than the previous. Again, major loss of tone with the scanner.

Anyhow, water color’s pretty cool, because it’s such an easy set up. I can use 1 brush and 1 cup of water for an entire sketch and instead of a tool box of paint tubes, you only need one of those elementary school 12 color circle palettes. Bam!

Off to write NaNoWriMo now. I’m on schedule over the 12,000 word mark, but tonight I’m writing the first really hard part. :/
