Dragon with Egg - Watercolor Illustration


Dragon With Egg

I've always enjoyed How to Draw... books. I took inspiration for my dragon-body from Damon Reinagle's illustrated book Draw Medieval Fantasies. I gave the details of the design my typical whimsical silliness that I enjoy. I used PG50 to paint the dragon - I just love the color!

Vector Graphic Using Watercolor Design


Solitude - Vector Graphic

I continued to explore digital art this past week. I used a watercolor design called "Solitude" I painted at the beginning of 2018 for the main graphic image.

Spring Ducky - Digital Painting


Spring Duck Digital Painting

This week I'm exploring digital painting, trying to get my groove in the medium and my Wacom tablet. The image was inspired by a ring that topped an Easter cupcake. I sketched it out for my "Draw180 Art Challenge". I intended it to have a "Spring birdy" appearance more than "infant bird pattern", but whatever, it's still cute! It would look nice on a baby's towel or changing station mat.

Have a beautiful weekend!

Raccoon in a Tree – Ball-point Drawing


Raccoon Baby – Biro Drawing

Happy Friday!

If you remember my post last week, I shared the “Chinese Year of the Dog” ball-point drawing from my “Draw 180” sketchbook challenge. I've continued using this tool in my sketchbook and have really grown to enjoy it. In this weeks drawing I wanted something a bit more challenging concerning values. I decided a raccoon would fit perfectly. This raccoon cub was hidden in a shaded tree and I had to invent some values to differentiate between the trunk and chest.
