I said I would improve my inking efforts by completing at least one face every weekend during the month of February because a month is about as long as my attention span is. I met that goal and even though I'll start working on other things, I'm going to keep at this inking stuff because I'm really enjoying it! Yes, I'm still very shaky but that's a physical issue I cant control or get around. It's frustrating, but I need to accept that my attempts are never going to be as neat and precise as factory paint. However, I wish they were and my stubbornness against being defeated is probably another thing keeping me interested.
The last reink of February, Justin got his face wiped again and redone. I much prefer this new look. His ink before was too wholesome and now he has more of a manga appeal. He's been given visible eyebrows, darker hair and pierced ears! Those SIS earrings are too big but they'll keep his new ear holes open until I find or make something smaller.
Check out that swagger. He looks like he's up to no good. Keep an eye on your daughters, people - and maybe your sons too for all I know.
I tried to reshape his jaw with shadowing so he was more sculpted looking than the original mold and less baby faced. Eh, it turned out okay.
On an unrelated note, I'm loving the brick scrapbook paper that I got from Joann's! It works well as a wall or as cobblestone. I'm using it to create another exterior house for photo backdrops and so far so good! If you can find it on sale like I did, I definitely recommend getting a bunch of it. I bought some of the "grass" scrapbook paper too, but it's not working out so well. Meh.
