Competition Time

I decided to enter in Winsor & Newton Ink Competition as soon as I saw it (which was only last week). Initially I wanted to submit the painted version but since it didn't came out at all as I wanted I submitted the digital one:

Magical

But since there are no limits in how many entries one submits I decided to show them my poor hand drawn attempt too

Magical - painted

I sure hope they like at least one of them :)

Merchant and the Beast

"cautiously, the merchant picked the flower that his youngest daughter wanted so badly. upon picking the scarlet flower he was confronted by a hideous beast, who demanded that in return for picking the flower the merchant must send one of his daughters deep into the enchanted forest, to live with the beast forever."

Egg Houses

I was working on egg holders. Yup, I've been meaning to make something out of empty egg box for ages and finally the opportunity presented itself and I made these houses.

Egg Holding Houses

I also made a tutorial on how I went about it. It's the same thing as my Shabby Chic Shelf papier mache one but still. Why not make another one since the design is different :)

View the tutorial here.

New Drawing

I've been working on this drawing from Sunday I think. On and off of course. And I like it. This photo is a bit weak since it's hard to take pictures of drawings and it's too big for the scanner but it will have to do.

In The Middle Of...

I think I'll do another one and if I manage to get the third idea I'll have me some series :D Yay!

Fan Art

I never did a fan art piece before but when I stumbled upon Gennine's blog filled with gorgeously painted birds and moths and butterflies and painted stones I was hooked. Even more so, when I found her “Watch Me Paint” posts which make you want to start painting straight away.

So I decided to change her Free Embroidery Pattern a bit and gave her style a try:

Gennine's Bird

I must confess - it is definitely not as easy as it looks on the video. I’m glad I gave it a try because I learned these two major things:
- use quality paper (I actually used a bottom of a box of chocolates because it was stiffer than the papers I have at home and because the papers I have wear out immediately (in spite the fact they are watercolor papers))… but… using this resulted in nice chocolaty smells and the paper didn’t fray at all… kinda good in the end though
- use BIG paper because you will draw a bigger picture and you will (probably) have less problems with painting those white lines in the end

If you haven’t seen Gennine’s art before have a look at her Art Blog. It’s inspiring beyond words.

11th week already?

I'm way behind my drawing project so I decided to number my today's submission as 10th one, even though there are a few missing in between and even though it should officially be No.11.

Gosh, are we really in 11th week of 2012?

Anyways... springy themes are obviously in my mind:
