New Little Brown Sketchbook

Finally taking a crack at my tiny toned sketchbook. Here are the first couple pages, I'm aiming to get more interaction scenes. I'm in the process of getting ready to move so I haven't been sketching as much in it. September is going to be a BUSY month, Bring it! :D

Thanks Louise!

Go for it! I'm always trying to remind myself to use the white as sparingly as possible haha. Thanks :]

Very nice indeed! The curtain in the second one is especially effective ;)

Mike Barnett said...

These are super cool, Kendra.
I love the color especially it looks like a mix of prisma color markers and water color. The brown paper gives it an entirely different feel than white too.

George: Thanks! I wasn't sure at first how I should approach the curtain so I tried just shading in the shapes the curtain made.

Mike: Thanks! It's all watercolor and a random white pencil I found in a drawer, I'm not even sure which brand it is ha :]
