Today’s face: Knutsie, inspired by Sktchy and today’s Inktober 2017 prompt “juicy”. For some reason my Copics started leaking and my sketchbook paper started feathering the Copic ink today so this portrait was a real challenge. It took a lot of work to rescue it: you can still see where Copic ink leaked and blobbed on the nose and feathered around the lips and in the eye, but I was mostly able to remove the worst of the leakage and feathering. When you’re working with Copics these things can happen sometimes, it’s all part of the challenge.

Drawn in a Midori Cotton sketchbook with a Micron 01 pen, Copic markers and Posca pens.
