Lilac-Breasted Roller

Another colourful little bird! Ink and Coloured pencils

 I actually made a mistake in this one which I had to cover up by cutting out paper and sticking it over the messed up section. It's very hard to tell from the scan though but you can see it on the original.

I originally tried fixing the mistake with a while paint pen I have but it comes out like tippex and dried hard and bumpy so there wasn't much I could do with that surface so I had to cover it up.

The paper fix actually doesn't look too bad :) I've got a small brush and some white acrylic to try for next time,hopefully that will give better results!

Spider Boy!!

My latest creepy ink character. Wasn't sure what to call him but I figured 'Spider Boy' would do for now. I had fun doing the little spiders.

I actually gave up working on this guy during the inking process. I just wasn't happy with how it was going and wasn't sure if it was worth continuing. A few things hadn't turned out quite as I planned and there's not really much you can do, except start again, when things go wrong with ink except start again or make the most out of your mistakes. So I left him awhile then looked at it again a week or so later and decided I did actually quite like him and decided to make it work and this is the end product. Sometime it really is a good idea to walk away from a piece for awhile and look at it again with fresh eyes before making a final decision.
