This is a face made from a DIFFERENT (non-Suzi) tutorial. We're supposed to write on the left page, and then add gesso to both before drawing on the right, but I HATE gesso and especially hate drawing on top of it, so I drew first, then did the gesso.
Then she does ALL of her shading and coloring with watercolor crayons. So I tried it. Yuck. Several layers later. It's not a way of shading I'm good at, that's for sure. I really liked her background, she had better colors AND more space to work. I might try another in my big Moleskine. In the meantime, I'm letting her dry overnight and tomorrow I'll shade her the normal way. The Suzi way.
