Face-a-Day - Pippi Longstocking Frowns

 
I haven't gotten tired of drawing Pippi yet, so her is another one. I used a Micron ink pen and Staedtler watercolor pencils. I was going to go over it with water, but decided not to because I like the texture of the paper showing through. I got a bunch of paper samples from Kelly Paper many years ago and I just saw this one lying around, so I used it. It's a 6"x6" square piece of cream colored paper that is the type probably used for resumes or fancy business stationery.

This drawing looks a lot better in person. It's so much nicer not attached to a sketchbook, too. I really like the way this one turned out. I don't know what I'll do with it, though.

Face-a-Day - Pippi Doodle

 
I'm still kicking around ideas on how to draw Pippi in different styles. I'm not sure if I like this version. I was listening to a Learn German podcast while I was drawing this. I guess I should've been listening to Learn Swedish in honor of Pippi. Haha.
