These are so much fun to make. Still working on the other designs, but for now here are these cuties. Cute animals. Forever. This also marks the 100th post on my new blog - a fitting celebration, I think!
This past Arty was so much fun. We went camping - it's hard to get much done when there are kayaks to boat around and dogs to play with and springs to swim in - but I did manage to use some time to sketch and paint.
These are a few character sketches for a project. I'm obviously not as comfortable drawing boys, especially young ones, without references. But it helped to get something of a feel for the character.
This is more like what my sketchbook contains as a whole. Girls everywhere. (And some Sailor Moon thrown in here and there for good measure.)
This is hopefully going to become a regular thing for the summer, and I plan on using these opportunities wisely; next time I want to draw and paint some landscapes from life, and maybe some wildlife as well, if I can. Looking at the stars and the Milky Way, and Saturn through the telescope, have got me thinking of celestial painting projects as well. Inspiring in many ways.
Fun stuff - lately I've been working on tote bags! I've been converted, so much easier than a purse, and fun to put super cute things on. I've got plenty more in the works... you'll see them on Etsy soon!
