Butterfly Girl



I don't know why I don't use pencil crayons all that often any more. The last few times I dragged them out I got really nice results with them.

I especially liked this picture -- I took 14 semi-randomly selected pencil crayons to work and that's all I had to work with. I have a tin that came with 12 pencil crayons, but I decided I didn't like the standard selection, so I started filling it with several random groups of related colours from my big crayon collection. This drawing had a couple reddish-browns, a couple greys, a couple greens... you get the picture. I can fit 14 crayons in there because several of my crayons are nothing but wee little stubs and I can fit two of them where one would normally go.

Tomorrow I'll fill my tin with completely different colours. We'll see where that takes me!

Oooo!
I particularly like this one.

Actually, the Harley Quinn one is great too, but I already told you that.

Well, you're a Lenore fan -- I should've known you'd like floppy, droopy goth girls. :)
