Little biro sketch, tidied in GIMP, vectorised using edge detect in inkscape.
Here is another sketch, in biro on a cheap lined notepad. I used GIMP to make it greyscale and the threshold tool to remove the lines.
There’s a website called http://vectormagic.com/ which let me vectorise it for free – but it only lets you do a couple and then you have to pay. Oh Inkscape, why aren’t you easier to use?
Trying out the silver marker, with alcohol markers (and a bit of post processing in GIMP)
experiment with felt pens
First drawing with the special alcohol felt pens
Quick ink sketch of my daughter. I don’t have her face quite right but I’m pleased with her pyjamas!
It is really hard for me to sketch people I know. I don’t think I see their faces the way they actually are – or I know them too well and can’t separate the feelings from how they physically look.
Coloured pencil and watercolour.
I haven’t sent these off to be made yet, but what do you think?
