Commission Job: cats


Cat commission final
First draft

Hi!  I got commissioned to draw kitties.  Can't say who the client is as the recipient doesn't know about this.  Hopefully the recipient isn't following my blog or this surprise may no longer be a surprise. 

One thing I have learned over time, is that when it comes to drawings, it won't ever turn out as cool if am not "feeling it".  Of course, I know when to switch it on just to bang the job out but if the deadline isn't that fast, I find it's better to stew on the idea for a little while.  Yesterday, I was trying to force it out and do the job even though I wasn't in the mood to draw cats and it didn't come out so hot.  In fact, am not even sure what happened.  Today, however, is a different story.  I had fun drawing the kitties! Hopefully the client likes it though!

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!
