Happy New Year!!
I hope everyone had a sensational holiday season and a wonderful break. I certainly are way too much food and had a few too many drinks. Got spoilt rotten and got an easel! No more using the dining room chair for this gal!
During all the excitement of extra hours at work and spending all my money of presents I did some canvas paintings for some friends of ours. They were a combination of house warming, engagement present, Christmas, a birthday and new years present. All in one! I passed them on just before Christmas so I can FINALLY post the terrible pictures I took of them online!
Introducing the goblin, Orc and Warlock, respectively. All three are DnD races/classes you can play and I am so proud of how they’ve turned out! Especially the goblin who I think looks so much cooler in person. Love the colours on him too!
The warlock kind of looks like a wizard however and he was dubbed wizlock by our friend 😂 Either way I’m super proud of these and was over joyed when they loved them too!
So I didn’t have a close up picture of it at the time but my other favourite card this year so far is the nebula and tree design. I think it’s just kind of pretty 🙂
Forgive the less then Stella picture quality
I’ve been a busy little beaver making a variety of Christmas cards lately that’ll go out to the family. Watercolour paints with black pens to help define everything. A could even have a little shimmering paint on them to add sparkle!
I find stuff like this allows me to not only refine my skills but keeps me busy during the day before work. Naturally I have a favourite which is the ram skull.
I think it turned out really well 🙂
Which is your favourite?
The first is a black and white tribal ish style beagle. The other is flowers (can’t remember the type) in a multitude of colours. Both were fun to draw and again a very limited amount of information, but fun none the less. It’s a hard balance to find; enough information but not too much. Too much feedback and mind changing can be hard to work with but too little results in me redrawing something several dozen times because it wasn’t what they were after. Anyway, rambling again. Ramble ramble
The present for my other grandma. All I had to work with was the colour blue but I really like this one. I think it turned out really well.
My niece is now six months old but not yet on to sugar so I had to compromise. She got some adorable little baby bonds leggings and her very own picture from her favourite Aunty! Me of course! What a lucky little baby!
It was a piece with the theme of my current obsession. The environmental decay and changing of our natural habitats
Present two that I drew was for my Gran who lives a very long distance away so I had to post it which wasn’t too expensive given it was framed at the time.
Flowers and a tree and butterflies. A clean black and white piece.
So excited to be finally able to post all the pieces I did as presents here because they’ve all made it to their destinations. And so the bombardment can begin!
This first one was a gift for my mum, along with a bunch of other stuff, but also one of my favourites because of the colours and different flower styles. She has a scaled neck and leaves for hair!
Sneak Peek version 2
Another little peek at the work I’ve created for Christmas and the likes.
Can’t wait till I can post them all and share the special project I’ve been commissioned to work on as well. I can legitimately tell you nothing about it which is killing me other then it’s a thing involving drawings and excitement. So frustrating!
Watch this space because soon…..
