    Veil | Speed Painting

    Howdy! I told you I’d be back this week with another video from my personal art channel on the youtubes. I’m also endeavoring to up the golly gee whiz attitude this week vs the droll nap that was a week ago. Bringing back the pep! Now, this video is my speed painting, in Manga Studio, of the past patreon exclusive line art, Veil. Now I know most people who read my blog, unless those might be crickets I hear, do their painting and coloring with more traditional methods… markers, watercolor (jealous, they hate me!), pencils, etc… so before you go BOO and not watch the video which is only 10…

    Speed Art | Ent

    My Patreon goodies for June went out last week and the art featured in this video, on my personal art youtube channel, was one of them. Ent, or Grootette as she ended up looking like unintentionally, is one of the exclusive images for patrons.  Want to see the rest of the goods? Here ya go… June saw some new rewards and a tweaking of what was already available. Every tier has a discount to my shop now in a growing percentage as you go up. I have weekly videos, like this one, lined up that patrons get early access to as well as their names listed at the end.   …

    Valentine’s Day Blog Hop

    Welcome to the last stop on the Some Odd Girl Valentine’s Day Blog Hop! You should have arrived from Tabbitha’s blog but if you just stopped by then head back to the beginning to get started so you don’t miss any stops. You guys know that I’ve been a desert when it comes to crafting and I’ve been focusing on drawing, bringing you more digis so I’m showing you my love today with a new digi… I’m calling this digi stamp, Big Kiss Kody & Mae! Kody’s expression… I don’t think he saw that coming whatsoever lol If you haven’t noticed I’ve worked as many instances of 14 or 2/14 as I…

    Hol-ODD-day Hop

      Good morning, Oddies! You’ve made it to the very last stop on our hop today, ME!

    Curtsy | Speed Drawing

    Last week I released a new digi in my shop called Curtsy Gwen. Pretty obvious where the name is from, ha. Here I have the Speed Drawing video of Curtsy…     She’s an interesting draw and color with the transparent portion of her dress. Its fun to put your mind to work figuring out how you want it to look and how then to do it. Here’s how she turned out for me when I digitally colored her…   I’ll completely admit that its easier to do digitally but still easy and fun to do traditionally. For anyone wondering, and has seen my past coloring videos, know that how…

    Portrait | Speed Drawing

    Hey there… today I have a new Speed Drawing video of a cute Portrait that I created for my Patreon peeps. I still need to get my color on with it though.     I wish my hair looked half as good long. I just got it trimmed and its a bit short so its making me long even more for those tresses. I think I’m going to let it grow over the winter and see what I want in the spring, oh the shaggy days ahead!   If you haven’t heard, I’m releasing images for sale as they are finished up in my shop so if you have something…

    Coffee | Speed Drawing

      Well this sweet girl has finally hit my shop as a digi stamp, titled Coffee Lover Mae.    I’m not a coffee drinker but I can relate to that first sip of caffeine in the morning, that look of being grateful to the caffeine goddess for its sweet existence, making me not sleep all day long.         Watched the video? If you did you’ll relate when I say the theme is “I know something isn’t quite right but I can’t quite figure out what”.   It goes like that sometimes but I think this one was an extreme example of tweaking things, all I can say…

    Doll | Speed Painting

    Last week was a semi-fail for having a video up to share, some quick changes around here derped my carefully laid plans. Today though I have one of my favorite pieces lately to share with you. It was a part of my patreon offerings for last month but it also ended up being one of my favs to color, check out Doll.     Is it just me or can dolls be super creepy?   I was going for creepy with her blank stare and pose but, and maybe its just me again, I think she had some of that but also looks weirdly serene… like a statue that evokes…

    A Mini Survey

    Hey you opinionated and oh so smart people, I have a little survey for you. As you know from previous posts I’m working on changing up how I run things at Some Odd Girl to make them work better for me, where I am now, while still trying to draw up things I know you all would enjoy. Some Odd Girl is going to be 7 years old in January (le gasp!) and I know that things in our little corner of the crafting community have changed since we began in 2010. I’d probably be more surprised if they hadn’t, frankly. There are more companies out there, more originality and…

    Blown Away | Speed Coloring

    I hope you’re ready for another Speed Art video! This time I’ve sped things up even more, 2500%, a faster and just as interesting watch I think.     This is one of my favorite pieces I’ve painted yet. I’m pretty proud of how she turned out and its continuing to teach me a lot about working with Manga Studio and how I like to digitally paint. I can’t remember if you see it in this video but I know you do on a future one how I set up my layers and my masks so I can make it a bit easier on myself… I’m a messy painter lol.…
