Revisiting old techniques - a girl from my art journal


When I first started my drawing journey 3 years ago, I was really into drawing whimsical girls on messy backgrounds. Then I sort of got sidetracked into drawing the eye with pencils and coloured pencils for most part of the last year or so.

I decided to revisit my old "style" and draw a whimsical girl on my latest art journal see if I still enjoy the old techniques I used to employ.

The background was first "messied up" with acrylic paints, inks, spray mists and random doodles. Then I sketched the girl's face, painted her face with acrylic paint, drew in her features with inks, coloured her face with watersoluble crayons and added details with coloured pencils and paint markers.

It was fun revisiting old techniques I used to enjoy.

What about you? Do you revisit old techniques you used to enjoy?

Super pretty! She needs an epic quote though, that can be your something new thing! Although maybe she doesn't because that would cover that pretty background! Hugs!

She looks awesome!! LOVE how her face just pops from the background, and every inch that you look at is so interesting and deep and detailed!
