Ink Sketched Fairy

Day 346 – Ink Sketched Fairy

Drawn freehand using a black fineliner straight onto some plain paper. I did not draw a pencil outline, hence the less-than-perfect proportions.

It’s been a while since I’ve done a close-up fairy so wanted to focus on her face for a change.

Roller-Skating Fairy

Day 9 – Roller-Skating Fairy


In honour of an honorary-niece who is turning 8 today, I couldn’t resist making a roller-skating fairy. This old fashioned past-time is making a comeback and I know one girl (and her sister) who couldn’t be happier about it!

I initially drew the outline in pencil and used the cross-hatch technique to colour the various sections in fine tip pens. This is the first time I have tried something like this and I am pleased with how it came out.
