Illustration Friday - Spotted
Oh no! she just realised she had been SPOTTED! This is a take on the media's crazy obsession with Hollywood and celebrities today!
Who cares what they look like without make up or what they are shoving into their mouth or how much weight they've gained or lost - but hey the magazines still sell so I guess someone does!?!
Ive also drawn a spotted dress - about 6mnths ago I was in an Ebay bidding war for a 1940's navy blue polka dot tea dress - OK I was having a Gwen Stefani in her 'Dont Speak' filmclip moment and I really really needed to win that dress - it was just too perfect! Sadly a few other people thought so too and it ended up going for US$80.00 - thats just crazy!!! Im not sad as I know I'll find another one on Ebay someday but this is how I would have worn it - cinched in with a belt and with my groovy black leather boots! Nice!!
Blind Contour - View from outside the Window
This was my first attempt at a Blind Contour sketch.
For those that dont know what Blind Contour is ( I didnt) it when you just draw whilst constantly looking at the object/view so no peeping at the paper.
Its hard - it really is, as you just want to look at what you are doing!!!
This is the view from outside my bedroom window - I have a four window panel in my room - its a lovely feature. The other side of the view from my window you can see in the illustration of my car ( a few posts below).
This is the garden with my yellow picket fence looking out onto the street. I coloured it in later on.
EDM #1/#62 - Draw a Shoe
I didnt have much time to draw this week. I did both this challenge and Illustration Friday in about an hour. I think I need to make more time for my drawing........sigh!
I decided to do the first challange as its one Ive never done before. I did it using a new pen.
EDM Challenge #60 - Draw an automobile
This is my car! I drew it from my bedroom window looking out onto the driveway as thats where it stays when im home. Ive never been a car enthusiast (is that a word?) but my husband is such a car fanatic - its the first section of the paper he pulls out to read! For me its just something that gets me from A to B.
