Citrus Slices

Some cheery, bright slices for the citrus season!

Return from Seasonal Hiatus

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

Mr. Pierson

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…

Sketch Daily: Pretzel Day

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.

Sketch Daily: Free Draw Friday

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.

Sketch Daily: Partly Cloudy

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.

Sketch Daily: Roller Skates

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.
