Turning #inktober sketches into color

I fell in love with some of my #inktober character sketches and decided to add color to a few of them.

For these I used an old sketchbook that had layers of paper ephemera layers with a top coat of gesso. I used a carbon copy sheet and transferred my #inktober sketch onto the gesso page…pressing very lightly. Then I added chalk pastel.
