Bikini Hilda Floating

I thought I’d share another piece from my Moleskine watercolor sketchbook.  This time, it’s of Hilda Otejekker and yes, it’s another bikini image.

Hilda Bikini



Hilda has a huge pool in her mansion.  She and Richie use it almost everyday.  Sometimes she likes to swim.  Other times, Hilda likes to just recline at the side or peacefully float on the water.  (Hey, who doesn’t?)

The water and Hilda’s inflatable pool mat there are diluted paint.  I used Derwent brand watercolor and Inktense pencils but pressed lightly on them.  The pink pool inflatable toy Hilda is reclining on?  That’s actually red Inktense pencil – I just used a light pressure and water to dilute the pigment for the pinkish color.  Everything else was enhanced with pencil and a Uniball pen.

I thought I’d share a drawing from my Moleskine watercolor sketchbook.

Here we have Hilda Otejekker, who you probably remember from the comics pages I showed on here.  Hilda and Richie frequently will work out together to stay in shape.  They usually do aerobics, dance, or both.  Due to her wealth, Hilda has a whole closet full of dance apparel – most of them being rather low cut and revealing leotards.  She’ll also wear headbands, wristbands, and legwarmers with her outfit.

This was done with pencil and the red is from a Derwent brand Inktense pencil. It’s really neat – it’s similar to watercolor pencil but is actually ink!  The color there is poppy red.  This was heightened with a Uniball pen and a graphite stick.
