Gertie's New Coat

Isn't she just lovely? This is Gertie of "Gerties New Blog for Better Sewing" , one of my personal favorite blogs! (My reference photo can be found in this entry, by the way.)

What is this picture made of? Well, admittedly, mostly mistakes. (You can see one on the black outlining of the skirt portion of the coat pretty obviously.) Here are the materials: black Paper Mate flair pen for the outline, Yasutomo stylist pens (brown, black and red) for the coloring of the hair, shoes and coat, grey Staedtler triplus fineliner for coloring the stockings- all on a 6x6 piece of smooth Bristol. (I need to invest in some thicker pens/markers for coloring, haha.)

Why did I draw this? I just felt like it! This is not a professional effort by any stretch of the imagination, I just wanted to draw something fun today.
