Drawing Challenge: Day 2

Day 2: My Favorite Animal


As some of you may know, I have a spaztastic dog named Weezer. He's a Pomapoo (Pomeranian/Poodle) and really keeps my startle level high with his ear piercing bark. He secretly likes to sneak up behind me as he hears Lee pull up in the driveway while I'm totally oblivious about it...Then he yips super loud sending me 4 feet in the air. Silly dog!

But when I thought about this challenge, I kind of wanted to do a Sloth. 
Sloths are cute! They laze about (like me) and do things deliberately (like I wish I did).
So when I asked Lee about it, he immediately nominated Weezer.

Then he defended his case:
It took 2 years of active trying to get pregnant when I kind of gave up
and asked if we could just get a puppy. Lee consented seeing how heartbroken 
I was month after month. He's cool like that.
Within the month of getting Weezer
we conceived.

I guess he turned into our lucky charm?
So now he's my favorite animal too...
Sloth holds a close 2nd.

So to answer Ms Melissa's questions on the Copic Markers...
I'm kind of addicted now.
Since Weezer is black in coloring I thought I wouldn't do him justice in Sepia tones.
With a quick trip to Michaels and a 40% off coupon on my phone
I picked up the Sketching Greys Set.

Below is a picture of the Marker with caps off.
I've mostly used the "paint brush" tip so far.
I really like the smooth application!

Copic Markers 4 Life!
(Ha, Ha..)
