Miss Teapot


Day 4 of my 6 month illustrating straight exercise.  I wanted to try something new and attempt to develop another fashion illustration style.  I love fashion illustration and would have loved to have gotten into fashion but I never liked sewing.  I used to play hooky in the 5th grade with sewing class.  Every time it came around I had a stomachache (no lie, my tummy did hurt) and I thought that the teacher was a horrible witch.  I still remember her face.  I will probably draw her before long.

This was hand drawn and inked then brought into Photoshop for colouring. I need to practice my line work with pens.  I am much better with pencils.  She has a teapot on her head.  Some people on facebook where talking about their teapots cracking and needing to buy new ones and this is what I came up with.

  3. A nice picture of a curvy and elegant woman. And what an original hat. I bet she will do fine at the Royal Ascot in England.

Hi, hi! 

How are things going?  Thought I would touch base.  My first week and a bit at work has been quite full on.  Lots of work to do for now.....will see how that goes.  Rob and I went to Sushi Jiro at the QV last weekend for some delicious sushi train.  We love sushi train.  I especially wanted to draw the scampi nigiri and the spicy salmon nigiri.

I also drew my fatty boombah kitty, Hanzo.  He is on a diet...but it's going to take time to lose weight, so he's still fat.  I need to lose weight too.  I really need to lessen my sugar and certainly exercise more. 

Working on some test animations tomorrow.  Should be good fun!

IF: Burning

Howdy!

This is my illustration for Illustration Friday and the theme is Burning.  I wanted to do something simple with bold colours and I went for "burning passion" and why not?  I think it's the type of burning most people wont mind at all.  This was illustrated in Flash.

I bought two awesome fashion books today: Dreaming of Chanel and Dreaming of Dior.  I would definitely recommend them!

IF: Mail

"Peggy was so surprised when she discovered that........"

This is my submission for Illustration Friday: Mail.  Thought I would leave it open ended for everyone else to fill in the blanks.

I haven't been able to submit for two weeks because of freelance work and it feels so nice to have something up for this week.  I am still on fashion illustration mode and enjoying it a lot.  Done in Flash and tweaked in Photoshop.
