Kelly and I are working on turning journaling back into a habit. I used to journal every day and I'm not really sure how I lost it. I'm not really a habit-forming kind of chick. I've never had any kind of addiction, and there is literally nothing that I do every single day. Believe it or not, there are times where I get up in the middle of the night to brush my teeth because I wake up and realize I forgot before I went to bed. BUt sketching and journaling, I'd like these to become habits. Or addictions. Or something. So, we're working on it and this is a page from that. It's loose right now, I'm hoping to have a whole bunch by the end of the month to bind.
This one is a little blurry, but it's the best nose I've done in a long time, Suzi-style, of course.
And I really just started slapping colors around. I didn't try to make realistic hair at all.
Added lots of color until the only NOT colored thing was her face. The reason I did this was because it was late at night and I was exhausted. My eyes were barely open, and the face is the "hard" part. Not that it's really hard, but it's the most difficult part of this particular page and I wanted to be awake for it.
Here is a close up of the background - I brayered white paint onto a text stamp and stamped it. I LOVE the way it looks:
