Wednesday Face

This week I was so pushed for time, I seem to be saying that a lot, maybe I need an assistant lol

So instead of drawing, I just wanted something nice and easy to colour in. is that cheating? hell no, it's all good people, if you find templates then use them it is a great way to practise other things like shading. Some people never get to the colouring in because they get so hung up and stuck on the initial drawing.

So I used one of JAY'S FREE TEMPLATES...

I printed her out on smooth card.

Then I started to colour her using PROMARKERS...

I added another layer ..

and another..

Finishing her off with a white gelly roll pen. 

Then on a whim I cut her out..

Might have been an idea to plan what I was going to do with her once cut out... but that would have been sensible... so I messed around and ended up in art journal mode..

Finally I glued her onto the page, and went around her with a grey pen. 

Thanks for looking.
