Sweet Angel #4

In an effort not to fall too far behind I did a quick drawing last night while sitting on the couch watching a movie. I got out my Tombow markers and drew her in all straight lines and after she was done I laid quite a bit of water on top and let it pool. The hardest part of this technique is not moving your drawing while it is drying. The next morning I came back to it and outlined the "pooled" areas. I really like this effect, it's fun and easy and makes the drawing look much more interesting.

I have come to the conclusion that drawing a face a day is much like dieting. Once you skip a day it's hard to get back on track and suddenly you are 2 days behind and wondering if you can do it at all.
