On my last weekend at camp for the summer, I decided to go fishing with my mom and Gramma. Or rather, I went boating, while they fished (didn't get my licence this year). In any case, I had a few great hours on the lake chilling with my two favourite women. While I stupidly forgot… Continue reading Fishing Life Drawing
Since it feels a lot like this right now in my town, I figured it would be a nice time to post this old painting from last month. ☺ I used my Reeve's and Artist Loft watercolours with a mix of synthetic and natural brushes (the natural ones were originally my Grandma's). I detailed… Continue reading Winter Cabin Watercolour Painting
Below is a character concept for a story I'd started thinking about last summer. Her name is Elsiveth (or something along those lines) and she's gone through a lot of change over the different stories I'd started writing. First she was an assassin, then she was a less assassin-y rogue, then she was an unknown… Continue reading Elsiveth Character Concept
To begin: I am working on a sort of resolutions post that will be posted within the week, and Happy New Year! I hope everyone's holidays were spent to their liking and that some nice memories were made. To the title of this post, The Blacklist is the reason Thursday's are my favourite day. The… Continue reading The Blacklist ART
Not necessarily new, not necessarily shiny. Last weekend, I spent my time at camp reading. And reading. And reading some more. I eventually finished the second day of the Patrick Rothfuss Kingkiller Chronicle, and now I am eternally sad. My brother said the third book won't be coming out in 2015, so I have a… Continue reading Last Week in Shiny, New Things; 3
This weekend, when I wasn't watching the final episodes of Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood with my own brother, I was creating art. I'd purchased a mixed media art pad (6x8in, 15 pages) of Strathmore paper with the intent of making some nice finished pieces for my room to frame. I decided to test it out with the… Continue reading Original Art & Lily Collins
I've been considering completing some sort of anatomy challenge for a while now. I recently started "watching" Yuuza on deviantArt for her incredible artwork, and realized she has a 1000 Anatomy Sketches Challenge. Though 1000 is a lot of sketches, I'm excited for the final results! While I may not post the entire 1000… Continue reading 1000 Anatomy Sketches; Batch 1
As of this afternoon, I won't have a very strong, usable source of Internet. I'll be gone camping for the following week until July 25th (next, next Sunday), so I will not be able to post as many posts as I'd like to. Bleh - I was just starting to get into the rhythm of… Continue reading A Week with Weak WiFi
Yesterday, I visited Michael's with a 5$ off coupon, and ended up purchasing a few extra things than I'd anticipated. Here are the items I've "tested" out already! Prismacolor Premier Coloured Pencils The reason I needed to make some art purchases was to replace the Eagle and Berol Scholar colours I'd shortened with some new Premier… Continue reading New Prismacolors – and artwork!
First ever portrait work with "pencil crayons," there are things I'm not happy with and things I will do better next time. Overall, happy with it! Materials: Staedtler Mars Lumograph Prismacolor Coloured Pencils Watercolour paper Reference by Queen-Kitty on dA
This is the new art that made its way into my sketchbook. 😀 Entertaining my little cousins over the past week!
A sketch and drawing I finished yesterday. It's a strange concept, but something I find I can relate to incredibly well. Constructive comments and interpretations are welcome!
This is Nemo, Sandra's (or MissCoookiez') kitten. | Prismacolor pencils, Faber Castell PITT Artist Pens, Copic multiliner, Staedtler liner, a euro blend White Charcoal pencil and white acrylic paint. A Finnish Spitz on which I wanted to see how the FB markers would work on colours other than grey-tones. It worked well with the oranges… Continue reading Weekend Sketches
Some photos I've taken over the long weekend in May. Enjoy! ☺
This is my first digital work since getting a new wacom for Christmas last year. I'd originally been using a 4 or 5 year old Bamboo Touch and Pen, then my Mom got this Intuos for me. I was so use to the Bamboo that it didn't feel right, and the drawing surface was so… Continue reading Digital!
