IF:Height


Howdy all!  My entry to Illustration Friday: "height".  I am a short girl and I am the shortest out of all my present friends.  I would say I am shorter than most of my past friends too.  I used to hate it and I wished I was like 5'6 when I was a teenager.  However as I grew older, I learned to accept and then actually enjoy being short.  Sometimes I still wish I was tall enough to reach the top shelf and see over crowds but...I have a lot of tall friends that give me a hand in that department.

I did this with drawing with copic pens :)  I actually saw a girl today in a cafe with cotton candy pink hair and a vintage dress and she inspired this drawing today.  Her hair wasn't as curly nor as big as this drawing though.

  2. HAHA I love how you have to put the note about the real girl not having hair quite this curly or big. She is so great! I really love the style, the character is wonderful and I really like the way you mixed the colors in the hair.

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.
