Lately I've been playing around a lot with ink and watercolor in my sketchbooks. It's fun because it allows me to be a bit looser with my sketchbook drawings.
This morning while walking to class I walked by this bush that was surrounded by a bunch of fluttering butterflies. It was such a small moment in my day, but it was so beautiful. Not sure what kind of bush it was, but if I had a garden I'd plant a ton of them so I'd be surrounded by butterflies everyday.
Also I like bears:

It's always good practice to keep a sketchbook with you everywhere you go. I've found that if I have it on me, there's no reason not to use it :)
Been experimenting a lot with loose shapes as starts to characters. I knock out a large shape with a marker and then use a fine tip pen for the line work. Nothing fancy, but gives me options to explore.
I'm not particularly fond of the Game of Thrones, but the costumes are pretty awesome. Here's a sample of a few quick & dirty sketches. Can you name any of the characters?
Playing around with dresses. These are mini sketches. Each is only about an inch tall.

Inspired by a few friends' pictures posted on facebook recently. Also, if you're interested, I post a lot more rough sketches and whatnot to my Facebook Art Page: https://www.facebook.com/ArtOfAlisheaGibson
This first image is from a friends picture of her outfit. The color, light and outfit fit well together so I used it for one of my paintings.
