It's been a lot of fun! My sketches now have more movement and mood and showcase my designs better. I spend a bit of time reviewing the ad - it's ambiance and scale. Then, I transfer it as closely as possible into my sketchbook. Finally, I dress the figure in my own design.
I mostly use color pencils - they are easy to handle as I can quickly decide on the thickness of each line. Sometimes, I use illustration markers to render skin color. I would like to expand my skills and experience with watercolor and gauche.
