Dash of color
Here's a girlie I finished from a post a while back. Some thick 'n' thin and a splash of color. I included the sketches that I posted before so you can see the evolution. Some rough stuff but I'm pleased with the result. Real interesting though. I can't believe some of the choices I made in the middle drawing. I remember thinking that it was a good drawing when I did it only a few months ago. In my own defense, I did try to crank out as many clean line girls in different poses as I could in one night. Sounds like an excuse to me. Oh, really Bob? Yeah - really, Bob.
Anyway, I had a blast with color. I whipped through 30 sheets of me layin' down all sorts of yellow strokes with marker. Scribbles, swoops, flowy type stuff - fun! You can't see the marker detail here, but I hope ya can with a 300 dpi print. I ended up using some black "Marks-A-Lot" strokes that I colored yellow in Photoshop. Just had that brush sorta quality that I liked more compared to the other Prismacolor doodles.
