Copic Creations Doodling Challenge

Copic Creations  says.....  "doodle".   Yes, you heard it correctly.  The challenge is to   create a card using Copics and to doodle.  I used a cute little image by Kenny K called "Brooklyn Babe"    I  had so much fun doing this I decided to try my hand at drawing.  I bought a book by Barbara Bradley called Drawing People.   I decided to drawn an image that looks vintage and I will call her "Bella".

 As I said.... this was a lot of fun so I took myself to Michaels and  found a book on Drawing People  by Barbara Bradley  .......  a 101 class!   Yes I know,,, I made her butt gigantic!  I guess I need to work on proportion!

 I sketched the  image...  I will call her "Bella"  took a picture and printed   on my laser printer.
Bella look very vintage so I matted it to enhance the vintage look..
