Wouldn't you just love to have a pair of magical overalls? You know, the kind that have lots of pockets, big and small, and every time you reach into one, you find something special tucked deep within. It could be a favorite charm from your best friend or maybe it's that seashell you found at the beach last summer? Who knows but magical overalls are the best! Uh huh. Can you imagine what this red haired young boy has tucked away deep in his pockets? :)
As mentioned last week, I've been working on fine tuning my characters and technique, along with exploring some new mediums. Like these fabulous Tombow brushes above. They look like markers but are actually brushes with ink that paint in the most incredible way. The end results have a watercolor look and feel to them. What's even better are the multiple, yet simple, ways you can use them. For example, you can create shadowing by layering the the same color as many times as you'd like. Also, you can mix the colors with one another without ruining the tips of your brushes. I'm in love with them and will be implementing these into my children's illustrations.
It's been a long week here. I'm looking forward to sitting down with a cup of tea in hand, relaxing and catching up with everyone. Happy Sunday Sketches, everyone!
