it depends. for the ones that are just heads (like the color series), i just freehand it with pen and paint in the watercolors afterward. for some of the more intricate drawings, especially the ones that have intertwining mermaid tails and stuff like that, i usually sketch out some of the basic shapes in pencil, then go and erase them after i draw over it in pen.
to see the full effect of the color series is to look at the archive- there one can find all the images arrayed in a collage-like way, very similar to the way i hung them in the gallery.
thank you! there is a bit of crossover between both tumblrs… you can see the patterns of stuff i am into and how it translates over into the stuff i make. thanks again for taking the time to check it out!
thank you so much!
