When testing colours turns into doodling, which turns into experimenting, which accidentally turns into something you really like! 💛
For a long time I've felt lost when it comes to drawing figures/portraits. They were always pretty flat and non-expressive which at the time I liked and was okay with. But coming up to finishing the manuscript for my second book I know I want to find a simple but more expressive way to draw faces, something that would allow me to depict emotions in more than just a few dots and lines. I landed on this last night, which is really just a first step, but I think it's heading in the right direction.
I also want to note that I was watching Powerpuff Girls shortly before drawing this so I think I've definitely embedded some of those vibes subconsciously, specifically with the eye shape.
I like how it turned out so I thought I'd share - lemme know what you think. I included the different stages of drawing that led to this point with the swipey feature so take a look if you wanna. I guess this is also a friendly Friday reminder to always try new things because you never know where it'll take you! X
