Hope you are all well, February seems to be a much nicer month for me so far and I hope it is a happy month for you too :)
Work wise I’ve just been doing more ACEOs as per usual… I’ve not been as productive as I had hoped this week due to a day where I felt a bit erm… down in the dumps… But I’m feeling better now so next week should see more work. Although I just realised my sister will be on half term. Eep.
Lastly is a painting I made as a valentine’s gift for my boyfriend. It’s kinda meant to look like him and me although he did take the time to nicely point out my hair is not that thick.
… He wishes he beard was that beautiful.
Oh and don’t forget about my facebook competition! It’s only on for 12 more days so get the word spreading and people to like the page otherwise there can’t be a winner! *gasps*
Just a quick post to say I am holding a giveaway via my facebook page. If by the end of February the page has 100 likes I will draw one lucky winner’s name out of a hat who will receive a bunch of goodies! :D
So if you would like to take part please like the page (if you haven’t already) and recommend it to others so we can get it to reach 100 likes and give you the chance of getting a free prize. Yay for free stuff <3 However, remember it is only until the end of February but with your help I’m sure it can be done :)
So I thought it would be best if I post all my recent scans so my blog is brought up to date on my work, therefore, prepare yourself for a bunch of unrelated images and ramblings to go along with them :)
I did this painting above a few weeks ago but haven’t posted it yet so I thought it was about time I did. I’m considering whether to make prints of this one to sell in my etsy shop but not fully decided yet… Any comments would be highly appreciated on whether you think it would sell if I were to do so :D
Above are two other paintings which I have also considered to make into a print set or as postcards or something along that line. I really do love floating heads <3
A gouache, technical and gold pen drawing/painting. Will put this up for sale on my etsy shop. Still really loving the gold ;)
The other week I got my friend to watch Tangled for the first time, she loved it just as I expected! It is a rather amazing film and I love the animation on Rapunzel’s hair, at the time of it’s release it was the best I had seen until Brave came out. Merida = best hair in animation ever. Want hair like that soooo much!… I digress, after watching Tangled I felt the urge to draw a very long plait and above is the result. Drawing plaits are fun so expect some more in the distant future.
This year my sister and I have been watching ‘My Little Pony: Friendship is magic’ which is probably one of the best cartoons ever! Applejack is a mutual favourite between my sister and I, but I also think Fluttershy is adorable <3 I’m always drawn to characters who can communicate with animals and Fluttershy is just so sweet :3 Hence the My Little Pony fan art above. I’ve never made any fan art before but it was really fun and I will make sure to do some more. I’ve even put a list together of my favourite characters from popular culture… Drawing Buffy is going to be awesome.
