Alternate title: "Fun with duct tape"
Scanner killed most of the details, but I was able to save the colors.
When I went to Michael's last, I found these sexy Prismacolor illustration markers, which are basically colored fineliners and since I work with fineliners a lot I bought them. They didn't have a full pack of the sizes I wanted (.005 and .03) so I got the brush tip ones, which are workable, but still don't give me that really thin line I use for detailing.
Most of the drawing is ballpoint pen, with some darker details on Jane being these illustration pens, as well as the full background.
Title and art inspired by Depeche Mode.
Jane is my cyber OC and belongs to me.
I'm beginning to seriously love ballpoint pens as an art tool.
I need to invest in a better white pen soon; my white gel pen was barely noticable over the pen and marker, and the paint pen a). kept liquifying the gel pen and turning the highlights in her hair pink, and b). has too wide of a point on it; the highlights are too thick and look weird.
And apparently, I am forever fated to draw female characters with huge gigantic tits.
Though other than the normal “I suck at anatomy and her head is forever too huge (and that her boobs could never possibly fit into her bodice without spilling out and becoming a free peepshow),” this has to be one of my favourites in quite a while.
Tools for this drawing: fineliner, ballpoint pen, gel pen, Prismacolor markers, the occasional Sharpie, and white paint pen.
And I must remind myself that if I ever want to draw on the inside cover of a sketchbook again, that I need to buy one with a hard cover, because this was a bitch to draw on.
