A dream-sketch and experiment

So recently I have (aside from getting the jewelry itch) been wanting to create more drawings.

So I did.

:)

This first one is a simple graphite on paper illustration. He is a great big, greasy, fat guy who eats children. This is according to my friend Steph, who birthed the inspiration from a dream she had. I decided that I wanted to attempt a likeness from her description.Mmmmmm, gorgeous, is he not? I may end up working this into a colour illustration, but for the moment I am content.

I have also been experimenting with watercolour pencils. I have never been very inspired by watercolour paint, but decided to try the pencils out on a whim. I love being able to mix the lines together but maintain control.

This is a green penguin. I like him. He seems to like me. I will now attempt to create more animals like him. I am looking forward to seeing if, they too, like me. :)

Off to more drawing.

p.s. It may seem icky and creepy, but I blended the last entire image using spit. Hey, it worked quite efficiently. :D

Hi Hilary, Thanks for becoming a follower of my blog! You'll notice that once you start networking, it's so fun and addicting, you'll not be able to stop! I am loving your sketch of that fat guy, I think it would be cool to see him in color also. Happy Networking!
