Again with the Jill Penney inspiration. I like the set of monster characters she's devised so I thought I would have a good too. I used the same materials as the two drawings of the bendy girl characters but I photographed them rather than scanned them. This is a far better representation of the colours.

I love Jill Penney!

These i didn't forget about so much as Blogger was being mean for a while and wouldn't let me Upload them :(
This is the second of the characters inspired by Jill Penney. I think the copic marker was a good material for the washed out look of the denim.
Unfortunately the scan is not great. The colours are a lot more vibrant on paper and less washed out. Some of them have actually come up white on these :(

I have been looking a lot at the work of Jill Penney. I like her proportions and the little bits detail she adds to her sculpts. I have done a few characters inspired by her work. This is the first. I also wanted to experiment with using copic markers on water colour paper. It seems to have worked well, the finish almost looks like pastel its so smooth.
