Pencil Sketch: A little Glance
Hello my lovely blogger friends! How are all of you this fine spring week?
I've been away busy with lots of different art projects on the go, and my current job has been keeping me on my toes. I'm almost finished on an illustration for a book, which I hope the other end will like enough to include, and two comics. I've also caught a very bad fever....Harry Potter fever ( I now totally understand what all the fuss over the books was about! It's amazing to read...I find I just can't put it down. After two months, I've eaten my way through 6 books! Just the 7th and last is left, I'm so excited.), so expect some fan art to show up soon. *laughs* Never have I needed to count on my trusty day planner so much as now. I have to fight the urge to flop down after work and nap, but once I see my work sitting there staring at me like this little lady here, well...I seem to find renewed energy to get to my art with gusto. There's never enough hours to do everything I would like.
Anyway, even with lots of things on the go it seems like that's when I get inspired by idea's most. Which often puts me off track for an evening or two. Like this little lady here. She originally started as a warm up rough sketch, and oddly enough I like her so much I simply couldn't resist bringing her into a more finished pencil sketch. I don't know if I can get around to colouring her, but I think she looks delightful just as she is now. I didn't know what kind of outfit to put her in, so, I just draped a nice sheer shawl around her.
Wishing you all a wonderful, happy and creative week my dear friends! Cheers!
