MOVING TO NEW SITE


I just wanted to let everyone know that I am not missing, instead I have ventured into the wonderful world of my own website!

Very Big Sketchbook – Page 6


I really like how this page turned out. I love the depth, the natural elements snd the mixtures of greens. I used gel pens, color pencils, and Staedtler Pens. I decided to embellish the end of the page with Washi Tape. 

Tell me your thoughts on this page. 

Tree of Life


I had a friend of mine decide she wanted a tree of life tattoo. Well, although this isn’t her tattoo, it did start out that way. However, I decided to make this one colorful! As everyone knows, I hate coloring my own art, but this one wasn’t that bad. The orange didn’t show up as bright in the scan as it is in real life, but you get the general idea. I used Staedtler fineliners for the lines, which includes the colored lines, and Staedtler color pencils for the coloring in.

Enjoy!

Black and White vs. Color


So here it goes. I drew this doodle over lunch at work and finished up the coloring at home. But for now, I would like an honest opinion of if you like black and white or add color. Look below and let me know in the comments.

Adding a little color


IMG_20160802_0001

I swear every time I sit down, I never know what I am going to come up with. In this design, I decided to test out BIC Marking, Permanent Markers. I bet if I used these on better paper, other than just everyday computer paper, they would look better. But even though I had no clue what was going to come out, I enjoyed just doing a little artistic coloring. Most of my drawings lately have been black and white and the thought of coloring those black and white drawings terrifies me.

I think it is important for all of us to jump out of our comfort zone sometimes though and just create something unique. Something that just comes to us as we draw. I love the flow of this drawing and I love that I used both marker and color pencil. I think it gave it real dimension.

Tell me what you think in the comments below. What would you like to see me color next?
