New stuff!

I graduated this year and my mum got me this sketchpad as a graduation gift. It’s great with these smaller sketchpads that can fit comfortably into a purse or a backpack, don’t you think?

And I’ve also bought quite a few new markers, as I’ve felt that I’ve lacked certain shades to work properly. My new promarkers are not from the same occasion, but spread out on several trips.

The new promarkers are the following colours:

  • Cool Aqua
  • Spice
  • Cool Grey 2 (I ran out of it doing Merriman)
  • Caramel
  • Warm Grey 4
  • Tan
  • Spice
  • Dusky Rose
  • Burnt Orange

The latest trip took place this Saturday when I participated in an event where we got to draw models wearing pirates-inspired clothing. (I’ll post those sketches soon, even if the thought of doing so makes me cringe.) I managed to keep myself down to three markers that I need for a current project: warm grey, caramel, and tan. This is the project in question:

Fanart for Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander-series. This is sort of how I imagine Jamie Fraser. I needed some more neutral colours for the tartan and realised that I’m horribly lacking in them. What can I say? I like bright colours.
