This is a silly Morticia / Frankenstein's Bride inspired character. 
I tried different explorations with her eyes, the blue ones on the right are the final version.

Here's something new I'm pretty proud of.
(I still have to touch up some stuff so I can put it on my website.)
My favorite part was doing the tiny cute sheep!



He's really happy to see you

Waiting for the Train

 It's Tennessee 1865, this dog patiently waits for his owner to return home.

Sophie praying - Annette Marnat Tribute

Annette Marnat Tribute! 

I love her work and I'm playing around with her use of shape and color.

Here, Sophie, an orphan, (from the book the BFG), is wishing to be adopted.


Late Night Reading

She loves to read, no matter the hour

BFG - cute kitchen scene

Here's the latest thing I've been working on. It was really fun. 
It's from the Big Friendly Giant. 
I was trying to capture the friendship developing between these two characters.
And yes, Sophie's suppose to look a little nerdy.

Tips and Ideas for every Artist and Illustrator

101 Projects for Artists and Illustrators

To help give your self some ideas when you don't know what to draw (or paint)

Give yourself projects to do— there’s a list called "101 Projects for Artist and Illustrators” that Dani Jones compiled some years back and it’s a great place to start. Check it out! Or, you can always focus on the basics— do some life-drawings, study composition, challenge yourself with color studies. There are plenty of books and blogs that focus on these subjects.

Hope this helps you like it did me!
