Real Pencil Bundle Sketch

Here’s a quick sketch I did of … dunno … she looks like she could be the killer “dame” in a Vault of Horror comic book. This sketch was done to test out Ramon Miranda’s Real Pencil Bundle Sketch.

You can get version 1 of his brushes from this forum post on Krita Artists.

There are two categories of brushes in the bundle (as well as two bundles, one supporting tablets with tilt, one without). I’ll have more to say about them once I experiment with them.

Take a look at the thread in that link. It has some incredible drawings, including one I really liked that uses these brushes as color pencils.

Here’s the final sketch.

Happy drawing!

Trying Out Styles

I finished reading The Frog Princess to my daughter and I made this little illustration inspired by it. But this time, I tried to develop a completely different style than I usually use.

Every few months I like to mix up my style and try something new. This helps me get out of any rut I’m in, but it also helps me understand my current (and usual) style and see it from a different perspective. I get to solve the same problem in a different way. Sometimes I bring back the new techniques into my usual style, or sometimes I continue to use the new style for the long-term.
