Bright Colors + Heavy Lines

This year I’m taking an art class at school, which opens up a ton of time to explore new techniques and ideas through art. Taking an art class was definitely a fantastic decision for me (thanks, past Arya!) because it gives me a good chunk of time to sort of wind down at school and let my brain run wild and creative. I really like that the prompts we’re given in class are sort of open to interpretation (most of the time), and I’ve definitely been having a lot of fun. Here are a couple of things I’ve worked on over the past month (which you may also have seen on my Instagram). My art style recently has really been gravitating towards heavy pen lines and bright colors- I really like the look of filled-in spaces and doodle-esque things.

One of my original characters- she’s named Elle. This picture is of her when she’s a little older then when the story takes place.

Hey, nerdlings! Sorry for the lack of posting and interacting recently, my entire week has been absolutely packed with nothing other than schoolwork (surprise, surprise). Hopefully I’ll find a little bit more time to get my blogging (and novel-writing) brain back intact this weekend; right now my mind is just “bio, english, precalc, repeat” with that little bit of music practice thrown in as well.

Until next time!

Thing 1 and Thing 2

This is a drawing I cooked (well, you can’t exactly cook drawings… no matter) up of my sister and I as Thing 1 and Thing 2. Though we drive each other nuts 110% of the time, I still love her to pieces and will always be there for her as we grow older and experience new things. But shh, don’t tell her that, it’s a secret. 😉

Arya does the Character Blog Hop

Desiree over at the Inky Tavern just did this on her lovely blog and I decided I’d give it a shot as well! I believe I shall be answering seven questions about a character in an in-progress work of mine and then proceeding on to nominate a few other bloggers to do the same. And now, introducing… Kat!

Not-Quite-Snow White and the Seven Best Friends

Snow white and the seven biffles Jun '14

From left to right: Silly, Grouchy, Fluffy, Dorky, Not-Quite-Snow White, Spiky, Grubby, Quirky

 

This drawing was inspired by two things: my friends, and my desire to draw lots of beanies.

Grouchy: But I don’t get why I have to be named Grouchy….
Silly: Shh, Grouchy, calm yourself.

Spiky: I thought I was the sidekick…??!?!?!!?!!
Grubby: WHY ARE WE EVEN HERE.
