This week’s art
I did a few more wooden plaques. It’s rather challenging to doodle a design that will comfortably fit on something that is 3.25 x 5.25 inches in size! And that is the base size of the entire thing not the actual surface size that I have to draw/color on. The oval one has an even smaller surface then that. Of the three I’ve done so far I definitely like the green guy the best. I’m going to keep doing these “tiny” ones – and I even decided to stop whining about the minor Etsy costs that they charge as a fee and listed them on my Etsy shop.
You can see lots more of my daily doodles over on my instagram! Remember if you decide to participate via Twitter or Instagram please use #ArtitUp so we can all checkout your doodles!
Random Doodle of the Week
I really want to get better at drawing things like HAIR (yes like hair on your head) and improve my technique with details so this week’s challenge to myself is hair. So I came up with this little girl last night. She is anime inspired from those helmet girls and the mecha girls that sometimes have decorative tiny wings in their hair.
This Week’s Crafty AGGRAVATION!
I’m still struggling to finish a custom Frozen / Olaf yarn painting that I’m not really in the mood to do. My sister and husband keep harping on me to do it because I told the lady I would and heck I said I’d have it done 3 days ago so I better really get cracking on it. I guess I’m finding it hard because I don’t have a passion to do it since it isn’t my artwork just “fanart” of a movie that I’m not particularly in love with. It would be different if I were a huge fan of Frozen I bet. LOL
Anyways I’m also trying to strike a balance between my art and my reading. Now that I’m reading heavily again I find that it’s so much easier to plop my butt down on the couch and read then to break out my pencils and sketchbook or my paints and yarn. I should have known this would happen! So I’m trying to make sure I do art at least every other day and still read anytime I have a spare minute.
So link up folks we want to see your art!
