So, you know how I said I was going to get back on my posting schedule again like, THREE WEEKS AGO?! Well, I’m saying it again. Every time I write out my plan, it changes, BUT it won’t this time! (Insert awkward laughing) Alright. In my defense, I overestimated my ability to get… Read More I’m Back!
So you may have noticed the blog suddenly looks different. Well, that’s because it does. Lately I’ve been pretty busy with school, as it is the main priority (Ho-ray for high school! Yes, homeschoolers study until their brains come out their ears, too). Despite my cheeky parentheses comment, I actually like my school. Learning is… Read More The New Blog Design
That is right folks! The paintings have been picked! I originally was only bringing one, but they liked the two blue ones and the concept behind the hand, so I’m sending all three! I’m so happy that I keep using exclamation points! Now they just need to get prepped and ready!
There is such a sense of accomplishment once you finish a long, overly detailed drawing. There are definitely things about this one in need of work, like fabric and getting the main subject to stand out with values that are almost the same. BUT considering I almost never draw more than the focal, I’m pretty… Read More Afternoon Art #16
I have officially made five paintings for this gala. I’ll be honest I got a bit angry at this painting. First I did the dots, but then I didn’t like them, then I did and added more dots. Then I needed to add a subject, which was going to be a bird silhouette, but I… Read More Gala Art Round Five
My apologies if that scared anyone. It has been brought to my attention more than once that the fangs are…menacing, to say the least. Either way, I love this drawing. This may not be my best work, but drawing colorful cartoons and character portraits is one of the things I do to relax and think. … Read More Drawing Goblins and Fairies
Guess what I worked on all week end! If you guessed “worked on a steampunk style re-do of my Nerf Gun,” you’d be right. If you guessed “spent way too much time playing the new Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild”… well you’d be right, too. Either way, from this combination this Nerf gun… Read More Steampunk Nerf Gun
Whew. I finally finished this one. I slowed down my pace a bit (and was busy with some other things that popped up) BUT, it is done. This painting was very fun to make. The concept was time flies, thus the clock-birds or clock-owls or “clowls” as my siblings have named them. In case you… Read More Gala Art Round Four
After reading this title you may wonder why on earth you need a cardboard ax. Well, perhaps you are cheap and one of your brothers, who have a scary love for all things battle and blood, have a birthday coming up. Maybe you still play dress-up in spite of the fact that you are way… Read More How To Make a Cardboard Ax
I have finally reached three paintings since starting this project! I know it has only been two weeks, but YAY!!!! The theme for this one is offering life and hope. The colors were really fun and there aren’t any eyes this time. (So sick of eyes right now…) That’s about all I have to say… Read More Art For the Gala Round Three
