Lady with Two Deerhound #SakuraOfAmerica #Pentalic #Gellyroll

I was looking through an old Dover Fashion book, and had the idea for this drawing.  It's all done with Sakura of America's Fluorescent Moonlight Gellyroll pens in a Pentalic Traveler Midnight Sketch Journal, 8 x 6.

The purple was the closest way I could think of to get the gray for the deerhouse, though thinking back, I wish I had played with using a Classic white.  Now that I've got the Souffle pens Grey, I'll have to try something like this again.
