After a fashion….

Meet When? Cousin of What? and Miss Who? She has a very co-ordinated opinion of her own fashion sense, doesn’t she? All those stripes indeed! And, no pointy hat? Is she, or isn’t she a Zetti-ite? She’s my entry to the Three Muses this week!

I know, more mayhem and madness from the fertile depths of my brain… but it means I get to practise sketching and I also tried out my new purple, orange and white Sharpie Poster paint pens from Barbara, which arrived today! Yippee!

When? is her name...

When? is drawn with 3H and 5B pencils. She was then tinted and shaded with a Derwent Inktense Sepia Ink pencil, to which I added a little water; just a tiny hint of metallic green for eyes and hairbands; white poster paint pen highlights and black fineliner to add detail and emphasis… Fruity 3D stickers are from Sonrio – Miss Kitty!! I lurve Miss Kitty… 😉

I think the faces are improving ever so slightly, every time I draw them. That makes me happy. I also made some drippy background pages – sharing tomorrow – from the diary.

(As you know, I practise in drawing faces lately…) And putting her hands on her back is an idea I will ‘steal’ from you – I can’t draw hands (have to practise those too…)
