This is a drawing that I did for the July ’08 Drawing Jam at the Drawing Board. The model is Miss. Mosh from Deviantart.
You can see the original photo at the July 08′ Jam at the DrawingBoard or the deviantart page.
I wanted the drawing to look sort of like a fashion Illustration. I colored her dress using Faber Castell Pitt brush pen in red and embellished it with gold flowers and white highlights to give the dress some color. I purposely did not color in her skin and hair because I thought it would be too much. I then used Prismacolor colored pencil for the background. After finishing the drawing I realized I wrote the date wrong, haha it should say ‘July’ oh well… lol.
Please check out her deviantart page there are alot of great photos! I’m hoping they’ll do another Drawing Jam soon ‘cuz I had alot of fun with this one.

Okay, I decided to put up the drawing that I did with the Copic Markers.
I know it’s not the best drawing I ever done, but I’m pretty darn proud of it.
Traveller, 11″x14″ Marker Paper
I mainly drew this to test out the Copic Markers that I purchased, so I wasn’t really thinking about making the drawing really “perfect”. Blending was a bit difficult at first. I had to save certain areas with pencil crayon. Plus, I ended up covering up her legs with mesh stockings because I didn’t blend her skin color very well. But I think overall, it worked out pretty well.
As for the suitcase, I wanted it to represent all the places that I have lived or traveled to. So I drew up some stickers on the suitcase to symbolize that. Here’s a close up:

I won’t go on too much detail about the flags but the flag on the top, which has a whole bunch of question marks on it, is suppose to represent a country or a place that I might go to in the future. Maybe Japan? haha who knows. I also used white ink to do the highlights and white gouche for the seam on the suitcase.
My brother wants this drawing so I’m giving this to him when I arrive in Calgary. But I know that with practice, I’ll get better in coloring with these Copic Markers. =)
