Illustration Friday: Lost
Wow! I didn't think I would make it for this week's Illustration Friday theme. But, Phew, made it just in the nick of time. It's amazing that I could get this done in a matter of three days, given the fact that I'm in the middle of moving chaos. I was really inspired by this weeks theme and the moment I saw the word "Lost" on IF...the image of a little lost enchanted doll in a dark forest popped into my mind. I didn't even do much of a rough sketch first either, I just sat down with the image in my head and drew it out in full. Which I never do, as I'm trying to improve my composition skills, so I like to play with sketches before I go to a final drawing.
I used watercolour pencils, sepia inks, jelly ink in pink gold and a little bit of CorelDRAW for the background. Which is a watercolour wash with digital salt. She only took three days which is awesome! But then again, there's not too much detail. Ha ha!
Speaking of lost...I'm quite in that state now. I'm moving to a new province at the end of this month...and just about everything is in utter box mess! So, all my art things are now packed up. Ha ha, oh my, I shall get cranky if I'm left without my supplies too long. But, I shall leave all this for another blog post before I hit the road to my new province. *wink* Enjoy the drawing and have a wonderful and creative week my dear friends, cheers!
