Practice in Mixed Media

So, this is my first attempt at marker with colored pencils over them.

It’s from a black and white printout because I couldn’t get my computer to fit on my desk. I ordered a cheap digital photo frame though so that should help with colors in the future.

This is a photograph, not a scan, so the colors and angle aren’t perfect, and I really don’t like how brassy her highlights got, but I’m really happy with how it turned out!

The eye on the right has black pen which caught the flash on my camera, so that’s why it looks weird!

What do you think?

I have 200 colors of marker and only 120 colors of colored pencil, so there was some fudging along the way.

I’m pleased overall though.
