It’s been a few weeks since I have written anything. I am so sorry for that. I have been working a lot and working on getting a promotion at work, I can hopefully cross that off my New Year’s resolution list. I have from time to time been working on a drawing of a character have in mind for a comic I’d like to write. I started out with this;
But then I thought about it, and that’s not the girl I pictured for the story I was creating. So I decided to draw this. (These are pictures of the process)
I love the direction it’s going in now, I feel like this girl otherwise known as Olivia, is exactly the character I was looking for. When drawing her I feel like she has a personality. I was going to stick with the original pencil drawing which is why I put some of the details into it and thought I can keep everything on paper, but I’ve come to the realization that I love digital art. I love the way it looks, I love the ways I can make the color flow, and that it can be easily edited if needed.
As soon as I am done drawing her I will create the background of her character and post it on here. For the followers who have stayed with me throughout my absence, I truly appreciate it. Don’t forget to follow me on Instagram or to check out my store.
hope all is well with everyone. Have a wonderful day!
I finally finished this drawing on Friday night. It took me a long time to do. I did the hair a different way then I have done any hair before. I wanted to make her look as real as possible. I would love for one day to look like this beautiful woman I put on paper.
I love the pinup style art. I have watched/followed a few photographers who specialize in pinup. I love the hairdos and the clothes back then. Something about that style was so sexy but covered up. At least a lot more than woman are today and over the past 20 years.
I think I have found the style I want to stick with as far as creating my own style. I want to add a different type of flare to it and will in due time. Another thing I have wanted to do for a long time was write a comic. But I can’t figure out the story line I want to have. I don’t want to do the typical super hero because I feel those cannot be created any other way then the ones already written. I was thinking of a girl with powers but not the kind that she would really use to save people. I don’t know lol. I have to sit down and write it out.
My next medium I am determined to try is water color. I need to go buy paints and paint brushes. Maybe some books that will teach me step by step. I hear water color is one of the hardest mediums. There is also these new pens that just came out called chameleons. Very cool looking pens.
Any who, the picture above will be added to my store and be applied to blankets, totes, cell phone cases, pillows etc.
I hope you all are having a wonderful weekend. 🙂
As the holidays get closer, my schedule is becoming so over whelming. There is so much I WANT to do, but so much more that I HAVE to do. I think this evening I finished most of my shopping, but I still have two people I have to buy for.
I started a sketch earlier but then I just wasn’t feeling it. I was looking up my favorite artist and trying to get inspired, but then I remembered I had to go meet my mom for dinner. I had a blast! My aunt came and joined us. I can’t lie though as I was sitting there I was thinking…What can I draw? All of a sudden it hit me. I need to draw something that is still Christmas related. I haven’t finished my 2nd drawing for the holiday competition.
I also take my blog very serious and am trying to insure that I write a piece everyday. Once the holidays are over and there isn’t all this running around, I will be able to put out more things.
If anyone has any suggestions or ideas for something to draw I would love to know, and Happy to make an attempt at it.
