Bird Study: Liwi Bird (Red Honeyeater)


One of my last blog posts over the next few days.  Got Christmas stuff on!  Hurrah!  Will be good to chill out a bit I must say.  I am bringing my drawing materials with me though.  Can't help that.  Drawing does chill me out for the most part!.  Just trying to decide on what equipment to bring.

I didn't actually know that this bird existed, I was going to draw a Kiwi and typed Liwi instead.  It was good find though.   I found this bird stunning.  Anyhoo, another animal study, no pencils and using a reference from google.  I asked my partner if we can spend time in the zoos over the next few days so I can draw while looking at an actual animal.  That would be nice.

Christmas is upon us and I spent big this year.  Perhaps it;s because I know I have a steady job next year and that I am planning to save, save, save in 2014.  Probably means actually bringing packed brekky and lunches to work and not eat out so much which is one my biggest expenditures.  Definitely need to stop having take-away coffee everyday too, that definitely adds up.   

Hope everyone has a fantastic Christmas!!!

  1. Doing this kind of work as well as your recent ones without pencils is truly impressive.

    1. Thanks! I just find it more relaxing and free to draw without pencils sometimes. Otherwise, I get too precious...

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: 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.

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!
