Sketch - That Maroon Haired Girl #MyFriendAlexa

Remember my almost terrified girl from previous post. Thank you for all your comments and appreciating my novice work. After working some more on her chin and adding few Zentangle patterns, my frame is ready. Although, now she looks startled rather than terrified. 

That's it. That's the end of my portrait drawing career :P I would rather draw cartoons than human features. It's just not my forte. Here's few pictures of my work in progress and the completed look.

The whole sketch was done using pens and sketch colors. If I wasn't so scared of my Mom's broom, I would have have been sporting a similar hairstyle ;)



After scrolling through thousands of tutorials on Lips and Eyes, I somehow managed to draw this. The hair color is a mix of black, brown, red, pink, orange ... yeah practically every pen my hands could lay on.





The flowers were coloured using three shades of blue and yellow around the outlines.





This is my favourite Zentangle Pattern that I found on Pinterest. You would have seen this in my other works too. Very simple and pretty!

This month I will be taking part in #MyFriendAlexa campaign to take my alexa rank to the next level with Blogchatter . My current rank is nothing fancy -  a big number 18,052,291 (the less the better) . I hope by the end of September I get to see a significant change :)

  2. Wow that girl looks so cute Raj. I like how you shaded the hair. And the flowers add such brightness! I have zero experience in zentangle but I see so many people sharing their art. I must give it a try some day. All the best for September and #MyFriendAlexa
