Day 30

A single tube of red lipstick, and beside it the sketch I was working from. It’s surprising how my lines are straighter here than when I use a ruler.

Also for Inktober I’ve been working in 2 separate sketchbooks, one is an unlined Moleskine which is strictly for planning and sketches, because it can’t handle anything other than ballpoint pen and pencils, the other is a $10 sketchbook from Michael’s which is holding up surprisingly well.

Happy Halloween!

This is my favourite time of year!
I’m pleased that I finished this one, I haven’t been finishing much anything lately because I’ve been a little down. Seeing all the pumpkins and decorations on people’s houses though has perked me up a bit.

Have a Spooktacular Halloween! (Pardon my puns)

Deer Skull

As you can see, my skills for creating titles are ah-ma-zing. *Sarcasm*

This one took over a year to finish.

I wasn’t working on this on and off for a year, I started it, did 8-12 hours of work on it, then left it there sitting on my hard drive until exactly a year later. Like most of my purely digital work, it started off as a doodle/practice painting of the deer skull. If you haven’t noticed by now, I like bones. They are, and probably for a long while will be a common occurrence in most of my work. Also, I really like antlers.

Suprise! This too is a print available for purchase on my Society6 page! Go here to buy one!

Orchids

Something a little more recent. Started off as a mindless doodle.

Done back in January of 2012. I actually made this into a purchaseable print on my Society6 page. Go check it out and maybe buy a print here. There’s also a skin for your iphone ;).

Praying Hands Tattoo Design

Withouth Polish Bottle.

So, one of the folks I follow on Tumblr, is the lovely Rumpshaker, she posts a ton of nail art, and recently she posted a drawing of hers of praying hands with a rosary, roses and manicured claws.  Hers was a rough version and she mentioned wanting to incorporate a nail polish bottle into the design. Since, I really liked her idea, I messaged her about wanting to do a more final version of it. She agreed, thank fully and here are the final pieces. I had to adjust the colours in Photoshop to make them more accurate to the drawings.
