Mr.Quail and the felt tip pens...

... and now for something completely different! 
I bought a bumper pack of Berol felt tip pens a while back thinking I'd give them a go and see what would happen. Well I finally got round to it, and I'm so glad I did! I've been working on images of birds recently for a very exciting project/business idea (super excited, more news to come soon!) so once I'd done the pencil drawing for this little quail I thought 'why not use those felt tip pens?'

It wasn't as difficult as I thought it would be, you just have to pay more attention to the colours you're using and layer them to create subtle shades (like the brown, grey and blue made this really nice purpley-grey colour that was perfect for parts of it!)

Really happy with the results, so I'll be getting my felt tips out again soon I reckon. I love it when you try something new and get a positive out of it, so motivating!

  1. This is so lovely. I find it really hard to colour using felt pens, you've done a great job!
