This will sound a little odd - I'm not sharing photos samples for this artwork here because all of their photos are the actual pieces of art and not like a header to a page or a promotional image. But I was absolutely BLOWN AWAY by this team's sculptures. They took existing prehistoric skeletons and … Continue reading Quite Possibly the Best Artwork I’ve Ever Seen
My brother gifted me these 60 Ohuhu Markers (company site) for Christmas, and of course the first thing I did one Christmas Day was swatch them. I took a cut up mailing label, swatched on it, and then stuck it to the markers with a bit of extra tape for the edges so they don't … Continue reading Swatching My Christmas Present!
So, I recently discovered that Washi tape is a thing - thank you, Japan! And it's ridiculously cheap for how pretty it is. I splurged on my personal spending money for this set: I usually buy books with my pittance, but this time I couldn't resist. And look how pretty it is!!! These all come … Continue reading Washi Tape Cuteness!
Silly five minute post. My husband asked me to design a cute game character for him, and this is what I came up with. I sketched it out in advance, and then he had me use a pixel art program to draw it. I went with blue and green because blue his his favorite color, … Continue reading I Designed a Cute!

The photo was nude, so I gave her some clothes. *smile* If you're interested in knowing what photo I used, I can dig that out. It was from a book of female nudes. Again, I had to color adjust because … Continue reading A More Realistic Watercolor

Since it's summer, the first one I did was a Kitsune with the red thread of destiny in a swim suit. I love Kitsune and the legend … Continue reading New Watercolors
I had the last week off, and I swear all I did was watch YouTube videos. Here's one of my favorites! Lioba Bruckner does artwork in a variety of mixed mediums, including my favorite mixed medium of watercolor and pencil. I really enjoy watching her images progress, and her narration is generally light and cheerful. … Continue reading Interesting Things Just for You: Lioba Bruckner YouTube Channel
This watercolor channel is one I've been watching because I am SO BAD at watercolors! And, come on, is this not Bob Ross's long lost brother? He's super chill and the videos have English Subtitles, so he's fun to listen to while he's painting! If you like Bob Ross, you will like this man. I … Continue reading Interesting Things Just for You: Watercolor by Shibasaki YouTube Channel
Here's Jenna Drawing! This YouTube is a guilty pleasure of mine. I don't do a lot of drawing anymore, but her style is SO appealing, and watching her paint is fun. Her voice over is cheerful and entertaining, something that I need a lot of right now. Her style is unique, and I would love … Continue reading Interesting Things Just for You: Jenna Drawing YouTube Channel
As of the current time, Auryn Hadley's 'Rise of the Iliri' series is my absolute favorite books series. Now, this does shift around a bit as some of my favorite authors release new books, but it's stayed pretty consistent for over a year. (And no, this is not an affiliate link. Regardless, BUUUUUUY IIIIIIT!) In … Continue reading Fanart for Auryn Hadley
