I haven't posted in a while, but I do attest to the fact that I am continuing to work on my personal projects in the off work hours. Anyway, throwing this up on the blog so it doesn't look like I forgot I had one. I painted some people sketches in water colour for funsies.
Sorry for the lack of updates. I've been enjoying my freedom. I don't want it to become too dusty in here so here's a small quick update. Been doing more people sketching, and I painted a few of them in watercolour. Started working on some other artwork for funsies~
I hope this joke makes sense... Being a hermit means I haven't been getting feedback.
This is another submission in one of the sketchoholic chiustream contests. I really like entering these because it gives me motivation to draw and a deadline to finish by.
With this illustration, I decided to try painting it differently than the last one. I outlined it and tried to get a bit of a painterly look. I also wanted to have more of a story. If you look, I put a few of the other "Alice" characters in the scene.
This is my entry for the sketchoholic chiustream contest. The topic was cheshire cat since the next interview guest will be kei acedera and she was a character designer on the up and coming Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland movie. It was a lot of fun to work on. There are over 300 entries with many creative delightful illustrations. I don't think I'll win, but it was great to enter a contest with a deadline pushing me. I did this in one day, late into the night/morning.
Although it's not something I'd usually post, I'm so charmed by this toy and proud that I made it that I'd like to post it. I knitted the body and stitched/glue gunned the felt clothes. It was a lot of fun to make! It's Admiral Ackbar, made for my geeky boyfriend.
