Woman of the Cloth by preseada Woman of the Cloth by preseada
Long time no submit... Again OTL

Did this little one for my grandmother's birthday. I took full advantage of some new colors I just bought, and tried a truckload of new techniques.

I'm very happy with this work, and it made me want to work with Copics again. Lots. I've found a better way to color skin (which involves something likes 236 layers), and I finally have the right colors to get golden blond hair that does not look like a cheap wig.

Time taken: 1h sketch, 30mn ink, 3h+ color
Media: Copic Sketch markers, Copic multiliner, marker paper, white gel pen
Character and art (c) me

This looks great, Ellie! (Sorry it took me so long to comment, I'm not really active on here anymore) I like how soft and pastelly everything looks. How've you been? : )

Thanks <3

I've been alright... Really overworked though =.= I have almost no time to draw :S Right in the middle of exams right now too >.<

How about you?
reina-sama-san Featured By Owner Jun 4, 2010
I know the feeling, except luckily that was about 3 1/2 weeks ago... exams are a lot of work to deal with. But then you're done! : ) What is the school year like for you, as in when do you start/finish?

I've only had time to draw since I've been back haha. Other than that, it's been mostly relaxing and taking it easy; reading, looking for a job, seeing people, etc. The usual summer! My dad put up our pool and I decided to go in this morning, except it was 70 degrees and overcast, plus the water was freezing so I only stayed in for about 10 minutes. It felt great though!

Well... I'm finished now ^o^ And I'll start again in mid-September, with 2 months for Christmas 8D

Heheh~ I'm gonna be working for money the whole of June (getting myself a gaming comp), and then drawing.
Speaking of, I'll be in Minny in July~ So if you wanna hang out or something, that'd be cool c:

Wow, two months for Christmas? That's pretty rad! : ) I've learned to love the long breaks from college, actually. Everybody needs some time to be a vegetable!

Ah, I'm still unemployed but I do have a job nannying my hairdresser's two kids in August. Not all that much in terms of the entire summer, but it's something (and about 30 hours a week, so definitely legit). Will you be here all of July? That's awesome, we should definitely hang out! : ) When was the last time you were in Minnesota?

(Also, apologies for the long time it's taken me to reply... I've neglected dA for so long that I always forget to check it nowadays, lol.)

I knooow~ Being vegetable-ey is fun <3

We'll have to find a time to hang out then ^_^ I have no idea which days I'm free, but I don't have much planned yet.
And I haven't been to Minny since the October before last, I do believe. Something like that.

(And no worries, I don't go on very much either >.<)

For sure! Just whenever you're free call me or send me a message (facebook is better for that). Do you still have my cell phone number? If not I can send it to you in a message. And that's a fairly long time! Lots of catching up to do, I'm sure. : )
preseada Featured By Owner Jun 27, 2010
Actually, I'm pretty sure I've never had your cell phone number XD
So, if you want to send it to me, I'll call to work a time when we can see each other c:

Can't wait to see youuuu >A<

Your grandma must have been really happy
getting a gift like that. The colours are very
smooth and you keep the lightness of the
paper a lot. Great job~

Bye bye.
