    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…

    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…

    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.…

    Blown Away | Speed Art Video

    I have a new Speed Art video for you today, its of a piece I created for August’s Patreon goodies.   Yeah, yeah, a little delayed but its still a fun watch. I’m really proud of how this one turned out so I think you’ll enjoy it too.       Next week I’ll have the coloring video to compliment this one.   I’m super in love with my UGEE tablet which has allowed me to really work in more detail to my drawings, I have a couple I finished up recently that would prove that statement to you, but you can see those on my Instagram (@kristydalman). I’m sure…

    Copic Color Swatch: Llama Digi Stamp

        Happy Monday! I have a new Copic Color Swatch pallet for you today.   This may sound silly but one of my fav things to color is whites. It can be subtle and puts your brain to work on how to make it look white while still having plenty of dimension. Blacks are the same way really, how to show the lush dark color while still communicating the shape, color puzzles 🙂   Here I’m using the digi stamp, Llama, and one of my fav color combos to add some shading to my whites.    Do you have a fav? List it below in the comments! We can…

    I have a confession to make…

    I haven’t kept it a secret that a couple of years ago that I was diagnosed with major depression and general anxiety disorder. The diagnosis really explained a lot of things in my life, I’ve been thankful to have that insight into my personality and to take steps to work on it.      Earlier this year my wonderful hubs says he wants to talk. I haven’t kept him in the dark about things though talking about them is not in my skill set so I should open up more and often. I can’t lie to him, and I don’t mean my love for him prevents a lie from slipping…

    August Patreon Goodies

    This month I have a couple of new images for my Patreon peeps, well, that’s *every* month but for some reason I’m really happy with these. Maybe its all that hair? I puffy heart drawing hair, like you didn’t know that already.     Going from right to left, because I’m backasswards like that, we first come to the new image, Blown Away. You know me and my amazing facility for naming my pieces *cough cough* but this one is pretty obvious. Fun flowing hair and lots of rustling fabric to taunt you when you color, seems like a good time!   The second image is just named Hair Do,…

    July 2016 Patreon

    Happy July! The holidays are out of the way for you US peeps so I have these new goodies for you. These two images for the month are totally at opposite ends of the spectrum.     Lolli is a fun beachy image that I had a lot of fun coloring, which is the July desktop background; Depressed is, well, pretty obvious what its about.   I enjoy making happy, peppy, art but sometimes art and drawing is also a form of therapy. I don’t really have to explain that to you all, as you know how relaxing coloring and crafting is. Your feelings can come thru so much in…
