The storm really blew heavy today. We were without power for more than 4 hours. I had to draw in the candle light. Memories from the big cyclone of 1999/2000 arose, when we had no power for more than two weeks.
Its always frightening to be reminded about how much we depend on electricity. Okay, we could cook on the wood-oven, work with candle light but the computer is shut dead and this is...well, not so funny.
Today, I started the coloring of the "Suzanne" Picture. I always color with Ecoline inks. These are inks that are highly water soluble, so they would not suit for outlines, but they are great for coloring, because very smooth color gradients are possible.
Unfortunately, the scan isn't that good. Jacks shirt has much finer gradients on the original. Hm... This would not suit for print, I have to see how I can set up the scanner so he does a better Job.
I am always beginning to color the faces and body parts. Because if I mess up with them, no need to color the rest. There is no use in a perfect background with poor figures in it.
Tomorrow I'll continue the coloring.
