In October, my friend Nina helped me complete a goal and did a line art swap with me. When I showed you what she did with my line art a couple of weeks ago I teased that there might be another swap for Christmas.
We decided that once again we’d draw each other’s characters, in a seasonal outfit. This time we settled on a chibi style – because I’m kinda into drawing chibi at the moment.
I put her character Marie into a little elf-style outfit. I do love stripes. Once again, it was really hard to resist actually colouring it.
And she drew my character Katerina running with a mug of drink, which seems awfully risky to me. But Katerina is a wild thing. Just look at those pompoms! They’re so cute!
I coloured her with alcohol markers. I was using a card I’d never used before, so I printed two onto the page in case I messed up the first one. Luckily I did, because right as I finished one of my cats came in from the rain and walked muddy paw prints over the spare one.
I’m so pleased with her. Don’t ask me what she’s drinking, I have no idea. It could be anything.
Here’s what Nina did with my line art. It’s one of her first alcohol marker pieces. Isn’t it brilliant?
Should Nina and I keep doing line art swaps? Maybe a Valentines one? A St Patrick’s day one? Any other ideas?
