Making some cartoon reference sheets, color charts, and colored samples for class

Getting the handout materials and colored samples ready for next week classes.
Used my trusty Sakura Pigma Sensei 0.4 mm to draw these cartoon face reference sheets.

Example of possible coloring approaches using a set of 20 Crayola Super Tip markers.

Sample colored with Prismacolor Double ended art markers. Started coloring the sample illustrations in my display poster to promote trend classes. While coloring takes longer, it does grab the attention more effectively.

I rely on this set of pens mainly for making customized name plates for each student.
Each name plate gets a random cartoon doodle on the back for inspiration or even serve as a tracing template during class doodling exercises.
With a bit of glitter and glue decorations.
