Day 28 – The End

It’s the end. I am a bit saddened it’s over, but I will continue trying to push myself to create something at least once a week. Unfortunately, they will not be seen here, but can keep myself honest by doing

Day 27 – Body Art & Invitation

So, I did some body painting on my sister’s kids, but lack the photos for proof. I finished my nephew’s invitations here. I would have drawn something new, but I’m gosh darned tired. I can’t believe tomorrow is the last

Day 25 – Drawing with the Kids

The legs are weird. Sometimes my mind gets jumbled and I find I have a hard time drawing things I didn’t really have much difficulty with after practice drawing from the mind, suddenly come out strange, or hard to draw.

So I finished coloring the puppy, finished drawing the turtle and colored it, as well as create the kitty for a sweet little girl my mom watches and colored that, as well.

Day 12 – Turtle Heart

Since I drew and “inked” yesterday’s post, I ran out of time to finish this one, as I had to get things ready for the impending storm and need to go to bed now. It will be finished tomorrow, because

Day 11 – Puppy Love

My sincerest apologies for the delay. I was so utterly exhausted last night, I got home showered and crashed. This was something I wanted to create for Day 11. I asked my niece what she wanted for a V Day

Presented myself a new challenge to make things interesting. Set the timer for 15 minutes and finish a drawing. I did so and even had time to color it. This is for my niece, forever bunny obsessed. Unfortunately, I drew

Day 5 – Sketch Finished

Finally finished, but “inked” with a Sharpie ‘Fine Point’, which is crap, as you can see. Oh well.

I’m on a call, so I couldn’t take a pic with the flash. Here is, sadly, my last contribution for the month. I had fun. I definitely pushed myself more this year, than last, but drew more last year. I

Day 27 – More Awesome Fun with Illustrator – Hello Ash!

So I told  friend of mine on Facebook that I should do an Ash Hello Kitty. Took a little while. The weapons were the longest, as I had to customize them for Hello Kitty. I love how it turned out.

Day 26 – Quick & Dirty Illustrator

Considering, for some reason, I am too tired to create anything worth any real heart, I decided to do something quick and dirty. Took me approximately 20 min. Should have been quicker, but what are you going to do.

Trying to finish this for a friend. Not much left to go. My mind, heart & soul are really not into drawing right now. Feeling drained & dealing with some stuff.

And boy do I need it. This was sketched completely in marker. Keeps me from being so meticulous. Second attempt, too. Better than the first.
