Some cheery, bright slices for the citrus season!
I don’t know exactly why, but there seems to be certain times of the year when I take a break from blogging. Especially in February – I think it has something to do with enduring the long winter months. I have been staying creative this time though. I’ve been focusing on watercolor lately and have painted a few pieces I’m really happy with. This Bird of Paradise is my favorite!
Even though I haven’t been posting, I’ve still been getting likes on my older work. Thank you all for sticking around! I really appreciate it. <3
This is my friend’s cat. He often posts pictures of him on Facebook and every time I see him, I want to draw him. Last night I got a strong urge to illustrate him in a completely new style. I sent it to my friend and he mentioned something about Mr. Pierson needing his own book. Something to ponder…
Painted with the oil brush in Procreate again. I’ve noticed the last couple times I didn’t want to draw the prompt, I reached for the oil brush. Not using lines is difficult, but I’m enjoying the challenge.
Cartoon Twenty One Pilots! I’ve wanted to make Tyler and Josh into cartoon characters for a while now, but every time I attempted it, I wasn’t happy with how it was turning out. I think part of the reason I was having so much trouble was that I couldn’t capture their likeness. But then I decided to draw them from the music video Chlorine and putting them into a scene with context helped a lot. I still want to explore different cartoon styles for them, so they might show up again. Ok, who am I kidding? They’ll definitely show up again.
Had fun with the oil brush in procreate again.
Ring, ring, ring, ring, ring, ring, ring, ring, Banana Phone!
This was way out of my comfort zone. I rarely draw landscapes and I usually draw not paint. But I wanted to try out some of the painting brushes in Procreate. For this I used the oil brush. The clouds were a little frustrating, but overall it was fun.
I really struggled with this one. I need to keep up with my figure drawing practice or it falls away quickly. I am really happy with how it turned out though.
Here is the second in my Emotional Animal series: Surprised Dugong. I had never heard of a dugong before, but they are super cute. I mean just look at that smile!
