Meg ala Janey123


Meg ala Janey123
Pen and wash
on Moleskine sketchbook.
Inspired by the style of Janey123 whose work I have seen on Flickr and EDM. She draws her subjects inside a roughly drawn rectangular black frame.She does her work in pen and wash.

Lately she has been doing a series of cats. Janey's work is slightly more stylized than this one of mine and seems a lot looser and more spontaneous than mine. Janey also uses a more surprising palette which adds to her spontaneity. I am in love with my Meg's ginger fur and yellow eyes.

Thank you for liking my work and what a nice compliment - inspiring you to draw meg. She's adorable and done in your own style. And no wash for me - all done with markers. Spontaneous? I think it's because I draw directly with a pen. I find when I use a pencil, the lines just don't flow and I erase alot. I use very smooth paper and the pen just glides along on it's own without any input from me. Try it. If you don't like it, it's just paper. Do it again.

Yes, the squint box is very effective and I think the kitten looks pretty spontaneous.
