i tend to work towards minimalist style even when i tried to make things more "complicated" ... glad you like it!

This is absolutely beautiful, really. I think that the empty space is what gives this impactive effect...

One question: Did you use the 'broad' end of your marker to colour the sky? I'm learning to use them, but I can't seem to do it equaly.. Unless it's in small spaces, in which I can use the "fine" end. :/

Thanks for the inspiration, anyway!

Thank you so much for the comment.
This was drawn on small moleskine book which was roughly ... A6-ish in size? I use the brush-like end to color the sky because the broad end never give equal coloring.

The problem with copic is that if the ink dries and you re-apply color on to that area, it will come out in slightly darker color with stripes effect. So I usually go over it several times to make sure the area is colored equally. ... And that's why I draw small XD

Hope that helps.

Yeaaah, the stripe effect just kills me D: In small areas, I work just fine with markers, but when I try to colour the entire background... :faint:

I think my sketchbook is a little bigger than that - and its paper is not as good as a moleskine one - , so it's just plain failure for me XD I was wondering if there was a way out, so I asked you.

But this sure helped, so thanks :)

Lovely work! Amazing job with the copics. I have copic markers and am still getting used to working with them.

thanks! I'm still having problem with blending colors, most of my work were solid colored. but yeah, COPIC is just amazing ^^ I can never go back to regular markers.

so beautiful that I wish it was spring again. (i have allergies to pollen you see, ergo, i dislike spring. so this means more that it seems)
git2's avatar

unimaginably so.
I tend to go into social hibernation to save myself the humiliation of being called rudolf because of my red nose.

I love that you stretched it across 2 pages so seamlessly--great job!
I also love your clean lines, and how lit up her eyes are.
