A few weeks ago I won an award at work for outstanding performance employee of the year. With that award I won some money. I was completely surprised and speechless. I didn’t know what to do with the money. I thought to myself, for once (lol), I could save it or put it towards some bills.
My boyfriend tried convincing me that I deserved to spend it on something I wanted. I thought about it for a week. Even talked to my family about what I should do. Never thought I’d ever received a bonus like this.
After carefully thinking, I decided to purchase a new tablet. Pretty much an upgrade as to what I had before. I had the Samsung galaxy note 10.1 and I upgraded it to the Samsung galaxy note pro 12. I did donate my old tablet to my niece as she wants to draw like me and many other artist that she has come across. This tablet is so cool, I’m so glad I bought it. It has the same drawing app but has upgraded its features on it that you couldn’t get unless you bought the new tablet.
This is what I was able to create with it. I drew the girl on the swing and colored her in. The only think I didn’t do was create the background. I got it off of google images. I blurted the background so there was depth to the photo. I had so much fun making this. Did it in less than 24 hours ( which is a record for me ) and am so amazed as to what I was able to accomplish. I hope everyone is having a great weekend.
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. 🙂
Since early this morning, there have been terrible winds and rain all day. All though California is in desperate need of rain too much all at once is not a good thing. Flash flood warnings going off all day. Continue reading
I was wondering this morning, what truly inspired me to want to draw, or just simply being creative. My mother was always doing something crafty. Gluing rocks to wood and adding a mirror to it, or taking chunks of wood and rocks and gluing them to another big block of wood to use to place stuff on. (pic below) Continue reading
