Thumb-Print Portrait

This is my post for this month's Collective Thinking blog. We had to do a self portrait for each day of the month. Life and other projects consume most of my time, and I didn't want this month's challenge to become an arduous chore... I reckon this fun solution does the job. And it was exactly that, a hell of a lot of good ol' doodle-fun!

Harley Quinn

Harley Quinn coloured
Harley Quinn ink

Harley Quinn pencils

Playtime! Decided to experiment... scribbled the pencils as usual but then threw caution to the wind. Whipped out a sheet of Bristol, a dip pen, a couple of brushes and some ink. Went all old school on it. Have to take a nerd moment and say that the feeling of an ink pen gliding over the smooth surface of the paper leaving a super black line in it's wake: magic! I had so much fun inking this page.
The old brain was mush from concentrating on not making a splotchy, inky mess, so t'was very nice to get to the safety of ctrl z and play with the colour. Aaah... Harley Quinn is so much fun to draw.
