Phone Cases

So I received some phone cases I bought (off of ebay) for my Galaxy Note 3. My old glitter cases were boring and added a lot of unnecessary bulk to my already rather large phone. So I picked up a couple of plain ones. I decided to paint them since I didn’t want them to be too plain. Above are 2 of the finished cases. I’m personally in love with the palm leaves one, I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out. The pineapples are great too but I feel like the leaves have much more dimension than the pineapple portion.

I guess I’m just really good at painting leaves.

I sanded the cases and applied a matte medium as a base before painting them to really help the acrylic paint adhere, and then topped it off with a clear acrylic spray to seal everything.

Hot Chocolate

20170128_204327

One of my favourite things about winter is the vast quantities of hot chocolate that I’m allowed to consume. Keep in mind I don’t drink caffeine of any variety so this is kind of the only hot beverage I partake in. Also there’s a peppermint flavour stick in there, but I can’t have any form of peppermint as I’m allergic :(.

Birds

… of prey! Perregrine falcons to be specific, I’ve been seeing a few (unless it’s the same one) in my backyard lately. I always love seeing these guys out and about in the city.

Still expanding my drawing skills, but this was specifically learning to draw feathers so that they a) look like feathers, b) look soft and fluffy, and c) be fast to draw. You can see this better in the image on the right. I don’t know if I succeeded.
