My first real attempt at digital painting. A mixture of paths, and straight brush work all on Photoshop CS with a Wacom tablet. About 3 hours work.

I'm pretty pleased with it. I never want things to look too polished so I think this turned out alright.

I can't for the life of me remember where I got the reference from, so if you recognise it please let me know so I can credit.

Cutie WIP

Line art for a new doggie drawing. I am actually thinking of trying this digitally but I might be too frightened.
This might also be used in a new short my husband is making, which is exciting news.

Red Eye

A little red eyed tree frog in soft pastels.

I still don't think I'm that proficient in pastels, especially the pencils to bring out the details. I end up just smudging them everywhere!
But I'm really pleased with this little fellow. Maybe more pastel drawings to come!

Danielle Ward

A quick portrait of one of my favourite comediennes, Danielle Ward. About an hour in mostly HB and 3B pencil.
I know I messed up the chin and the lips to some extent but I am happy you can see a resemblence.

Baby Sketch

Another quick unfinished sketch. About 20 mins work. I have never drawn a baby before so getting the proportions right is a real challenge.
May work more on this as I like the eyes so far.

Sketch done in 15 mins. Part of my aim to do something arty every day, not spend ages on finishing it, and no procrastination.

Love Birds

Two little felt love birds, about 3 inches tall.
Very pleased with these. I will make more.
