Milady, 4.5x6.5" marker and gel pen

Little sketch I ended up loving so much I ended up finishing! This is just the concept drawing, and I am proud that I didn't sketch in pencil beforehand ^^

 I've recognized that I've been drawn to markers and gel pens lately and less watercolors. I like to lay a color down, block in the basic shapes, and then draw over it with a white gel pen to pull the pigment out and spread it around with the more viscous white, then go over it in detail with the finer tip of the marker. Sometimes I'll make several passes over different areas, alternating the two, blending and detailing, blending and detailing. I love this color, I've used this marker in a majority of my work the last year. 

ummm...new art, yay! Annnddd more to come, likely a watercolor with marker and pen detailing ^^
