In early March, I put in a commission request for Inawong on Deviant Art. They produce professional level work that I like, and a particular piece of theirs caught my eye. (Found here since I don't want to steal their image.) I gave a budget, a rough description of what I needed, and a request … Continue reading Imma Bleed Money But It’s a Good Thing
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
I attended the University of Wisconsin - Madison, which was a wonderful and desperate experience. I was so sick during this time period that it was a struggle. But, one semester, I don't remember what year, probably 2005 or 2006, I took an art class. My professor came down on me hard for making everything … Continue reading When Something You Create Becomes Precious
My marker projects I showed Monday came out... okay. I suspect I could touch them up with colored pencil, and that would help. I was pleased with them at the time, but now... not so much. So, thinking of colored pencil, I remembered that one of my favorite artists, Lioba Bruckner, does watercolor with colored … Continue reading She’s a Princess, Can’t You See the Crown?

Here's the first: In case you're wondering, this is fanart of Feyre from A Court of … Continue reading Practicing With Markers – Win?
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!
I worked on a new watercolor with a reference photo to make it more realistic. 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
I've been watching a lot of watercolor YouTube videos lately, and when I got my wellness initiative from work, I bought a few things to try them out. 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
