Swirly Tail

Day 78 of illustrating everyday.  The image just came to my head so I just drew it!  I don't draw enough animals I think, I always prefer to draw people.  I guess it's because I am not surrounded by pets or animals at all and I didn't grow up with pets being a major influence in my life.  I do find them fun to draw though.  I miss life drawing, I should get back into it but as it is, I find that there just isn't enough time in the day for everything.  I still need to get my loop animation done for this month.  Eep!

The weekend has been awesome thus far!  Looking forward to what this week might bring.

Done with copic fineliners and coloured in Photoshop


  1. I absolutely love this!!! It's so pretty and sweet, you draw animals beautifully for not having had any...although I don't know how many people have actually had swirly tailed birds as pets!
    Have a wonderful week Marta...

Some journal entries!

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: Remedy

"Little Benny is off to remedy a pest problem" Howdy, When the theme "Remedy" for Illustration Friday came about, this came to my head.  I suppose I always had a thorough and maybe a tad bit on the overkill side when it comes to remedying certain problems.  I got bitten by bedbugs while I was in an Austrian hostel and this is exactly what I wanted to do...eradicate the nasty little creatures from the face of the planet.  This is hand drawn and then scanned into Photoshop for colouring. I went hiking again today. Went hiking in the rain and mud in the Dandeong ranges and treated myself to scones afterwards.  Not a bad day at all.  Keeping active and having a balance between work and staying at home all the time and just trekking outdoors really helps me focus on what I need to do.
