Hand Studies 03 (practicing)

Me holding my coffee cup while waiting for a friend (left hand) in a foodcourt
Some guy was reading his kindle from afar at the foodcourt, thought I'd draw it but he kept moving so my hand perspective is a little wonky.

Drawing Rob's hand

Ah, forgot to put up a post before I left the house last night.  Whoopsie!  So here's the one for yesterday.  More hand practice!  Any suggestions or feedback?  Please feel free to send them my way.  In the meantime am going to be practicing as much as I can.  I usually have a sketch pad with me wherever I go but more so now. I tend to get some hand practice in-between events when am out and about.   Best way to get some practice in my busy schedule I think!

Think am going to need to start practicing backgrounds and props too....

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


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.
