Got bored as my husband is currently on a away day with work (I think thats just code for a day off work getting drunk in the business world) In the illustrator world that just means extra “me time” which equals working (but its fun to draw so its not that sad and pathetic)
So since I started adding colour to my illustrations I decided to give some of my old illustrations the Technicolour treatment and I decided to start with this one as its my most popular illustration I have done so far.
Oh the time does fly when your obsessing over tiny details of a illustration I wish I could draw in like 5 minutes so I can spend the rest of the day relaxing…
Anyway I am back to doing my horoscope work, to be honest I sort of wanted to get virgo out of the way a bit, its sort of well…. boring. It very hard to make a Virgo illustration different from an ordinary one well all the other horoscope have so much to play with, but virgo just gives you a Virgin girl and it can be a bit difficult (I can say that being a virgo myself)
Anyway I actually liked how this turned out in the end I decided to give her a halo of sorts
Phew these horoscopes are taking a while aren’t they?
Oh well 6 down or is it 5?
This was a horoscope I wasn’t sure who I was going to draw and try and find archery shots that aren’t just people in cosplay or cut off most of the body… Anyway I saw this edie campbell editorial where she is holding a bag and thought perfect pose for holding an arrow!
The question I get most about my work is what media is it? Pencil or digital? Well its both all skintone is pencil and line work is hand drawn scanned into the computer and then I colour it in, If I take out the pencil scan you left with this.
Eurghh so tired I can’t wait to lie down on the sofa for 5 minutes before I have to go back out again… oh well!
Here’s my libra Illustration, god this one was so hard to decide what to do for it… My little sister is a libra so if the scales represent hormonal imbalance they certainly got it right, but other than that errant thought I was completely lost how to interpret scales into an illustration, Girls on scales? Done. Girl holding scales? Done. So then I went on pinterest (closet case inspiration I call it) and saw a picture of a hipster guy with loads of tattoos and a beard, and figured why does it have to be a girl? Plus some of these hipster guys are really good looking in a weird way (can’t put my finger on why though)
Anyway I put together my reference image and started sketching away! It was fun I don’t get to draw many guys in my line of work, should probably start doing more guys ;p
Happy Tuesday! I have always liked Tuesday’s I think they are an underrated day of the week. It also happens to be usually my most productive day! I finished this gemini picture today so thats 4 horoscopes down and … Continue reading →
As you can see I got re-grammed on Instagram by Miss DELEVINGNE herself!! 115,000 is not something to scoff at! On the absolute opposite and the crap fest that is my life I did not get the credit! The person who did all the hard work (me) was left out of the credit and the person who took a screenshot and regrammed me but didn’t credit me as artist got all the credit.
It’s rather unique to be this visible and this invisible at the same time
