Fruit Bowl 2 - Sketch

This was just a quick little warm-up drawing, pencil on scrap paper. But I liked it well enough to color it. The coloring is sketchy like the pencil drawing, but layered in places. See Fruit Bowl 1, a year earlier, for another version of the same subject.
  • Copic marker colors used: B41,45, E00,04,95, G21, YG03,63,91, V04,15, YR04,09,15,21, R08,24, RV13,95
  • Paper: 4x6" copier paper

Doodle with Gray, Sepia, and Pink

For this doodle, I started with the corners and worked in toward the center. After drawing the black lines, I added more lines in gray, sepia, and pink, along with some coloring. I'm happy with the result.
  • Copic marker colors used: Black, cool gray, sepia and pink multiliners; C0, C3, E11, E33, RV10, RV13+RV91. The + means one color on top of another.

Blog News 5

Updates to Mostly Markers, other than new drawings posted, since the last Blog News:
  • Removed labels "Copic" and "pre-Copic." Since 2008, my drawings have been almost entirely Copic. Before that, they were all pre-Copic, so the two labels were just clutter. To see drawings by date, go to the archives list, below the label list on the right.
  • Divided "About My Labels" into three parts, due to blog software limits on the number of labels per post.
  • Updated "Tools I Like" with my new scanner information.
