Playing with Prismacolor Again

Sometimes Prismacolor markers..... kinda......uh..... make me want to scream.  They are the Mariah Carey to my Nicki Minaj. There I said it!  They're finicky & difficult to blend, I can spend 30 minutes to an hour on the smallest of drawings,  and the colorless blender always does the opposite of what I think it should do.  Yet somehow, I'm always excited to play and practice with them, and when a sketch turns out halfway decent I feel overjoyed.   So, maybe they're the Ross to my Rachel--totally loveable but sometimes we need a break.  

Happy New Year!

Happy 2015 everybody! For me, 2015 has started on a fantastic note...busy, but fantastic.  Yours truly is taking 2 art classes this semester (digital painting & human figure I), applying for a gallery show at a public library, getting ready to  study art in Italy next summer (maybe this summer, but not holding my breath) & I've been commissioned to design thank you cards for a local non-profit!   Whaaaaaat?! Yep, I'm that busy artist. 

So, here are a couple drawings from my human figure class. I'll re-post the one on the left when it's finished.
