Additionally, I seem to have one of those phases in which I'm always unsatisfied with anything I draw. I hope I get over it soon. Because drawing has become some kind of anchor for me. As I've said already: it's like meditating and I manage to rest my mind a little.
At the weekend I took out a sketch I did on Valentine's Day for colouring. My boyfriend was at his office all day and I felt kind of lonely. ^^' It's a fanart of Link and Malon from Ocarina of Time. One of my favourite video game couples. Copics and pastells, as usual.
At some point I just got tired of that picture and stopped. I don't know exactly what's bothering me so much about it, though. Do you see any crucial flaws? Hmm..
By the way, my next blog post is going to be about marker papers and why I'm using the wrong side of the paper! (Yes, seriously!!) Several people asked for a tutorial on working with copics and that would be part one of a series. If you have any questions in particular, do not hesitate to ask and I will include my answers in the tutorial posts.
Otherwise, I tried some of the cupcake recipies I prepared! That's my own creation: vanilla raspberry cupcakes! I used real vanilla beans and fresh raspberries. The best I made so far, I think. I love baking!
