    Blue Bird

    click pics to see in gigantoid size Every had a craving so strong you just couldn’t resist? Yeah. I wanted to draw a bird on Monday lol. Weird, I know. So over about 2 hours while watching Hell’s Kitchen and Master Chef. I sketched and colored the bird above. I updated pics via Instagram hence I got the progression above. Not the greatest pics ever but considering they were by lamp light on my phone I really can’t complain. ๐Ÿ™‚ย  Here is a nice scan of the final piece. Sketched with Grey Multipliner and colored with Copics If you look at the huge size of this image you can see…

    Sketch peek

    Here’s a little peek of a new design I worked on this weekend. I am trying like all get out to get as ahead as possible then I can step back and take my time to look at some other ย projects I’ve got to get started on but these designs are looming to have them ready by when I need them! I’m happy to say that I don’t have that much more to go, probably like 6 more sets? I think that would make me happy! Last week was simply not the week, it seemed, to do much of anything overly productive, not for lack of trying, with both kids…

    Sketching…

    Well I caught the sick my hubs brought home then gave to my son then gave to me and now my daughter has it. greaaaaaaat. I have a commission to work on that I’ll be working on today now that I can actually think further than 2 + 2 but I did manage to do 1 drawing in about a 4 day period so I thought I would share a peek of it ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m kind of thinking ahead toward the warmth of summer (maybe that was the fever?)… what are some summery things you like to see and use on your creations?

    Inspiration Monday

    Today, the inspiration is just to be FREE. Take time that you were going to use to do a “To-Do” project and pull some random elements together and just have FUN! In the spirit of that I took about an hour the other night and whipped out a sketch pad and pencil, my good ol clicks, and then went to town right over the top with my Copics. Graphite will not hurt your Copics but it will permanently discolor your tip so if that would be an issue for you, don’t mix’em. I figure I’ll have to change the tip eventually so I’m not so worried about it. ๐Ÿ™‚ Working…
