fairy protest

i hate you blogger

Fairies are concerned with insect cruelty.

It's an older sketch, I worked on a few years ago I came back to. Although this time I fleshed out the frog design a wonderful excuse to study animals more. Instead of going more strict and detailed design, I went with this more sillier concept. Man he'd make a great puppet.

I actually redrew her 3 times, Just wanted to go with less thick lines to make her thinner then most of my standard women designs. Still the thicker arms help show her Sass.

I had problem developing the skin. I wanted her to be pale, and working with the textures it was hard to tell if I was going the right way. So I went with one ext ream color scheme, and then shift the hues to get to something closer to what I wanted

added some pink tones. This is all a base, I would later start to paint something closer to what I want.

closer to the end

without textures and lines, so it's my paints naked.

just like before, I didn't know where to start with so many colors on the frog, I started with a base so I could get an idea of the shape.

Now I didn't change the hue, instead I immediately painted over in a simple base.

Still it's a fun piece, I had a lot of fun working on

flying with reginald

I hate you blogger
friends don't let friends drive drunk

yeah, this is a sketch I've been working on since last year, Sept 14.

It's been crude work for a while, but I'm happy with the results, it's one of those pieces where it grows on me the more I spent time apart from it.
check out the work process

working off the original idea, but then jumping into an idea of playing with the angle.

original sketch, was going to add lines in there later

testing out on expanding the border, and figuring out a temporary clouds

simple color cut outs

added the usual texture

as you can see I was going for different color tones inside the clouds and then adding the wind, which I later just polished.
