Monday Mix: Arty Stuff

Some sketches I worked on during the first night of our monthly Arty. I think this is one of my most successful attempts at drawing young boys, with different faces even, without using references. Progress! These are for a collaboration with a friend. 

I also worked on painting my (admittedly unused) roller skates: 

Bats and sweets ♥_♥ Now I just have to learn to skate again... in the meantime I can't wait to finish these!

Monday Mix: Sketchbook

I've been sketching more than usual lately! Mostly they are interiors and buildings drawn from various photos from tumblr - I rarely draw anything architectural, so I've been devoting myself to practice. I dislike using a ruler (it feels like it takes a lot of the fun out of drawing to be so exacting and angular) so the perspective in these is far from correct, but it's been a fun challenge nonetheless. Working my way towards an illustration set in an architectural interior with correct perspective.

Friday Final: My Brawlentine

A little gift to my boyfriend on Valentine's Day. We play Smash Bros. together a lot, and "our" battle is King DeDeDe vs. Peach (in Smashville) - David's a troll, I like cute pink things, you know. The little Waddledee minion who threw the sticky bomb represents our dog, Polly. They're in cahoots together.

He wouldn't let me post it, but David drew me a Lady Rainicorn in My Little Pony style, complete with "I love you" in Korean. My boyfriend. Is best.

Hope you all had a beautiful day! I'll be back next week with some more serious work. Until then, have fun!

Wednesday WIWT: February 12

What I Wore Today, February 12

Since I didn't wear anything dressy for Valentine's Day, just pajamas or jeans (but NOT Pajama Jeans), here's something from a couple of days before. It's been an unusually warm winter, even for Florida. Now that the cold is actually here I am suffering! I hate cold weather ;_; Summer plzzz
