The cosmic energies should be starting to move in your direction when it comes to social and communication matters, and you should soon be able to figure out a new way to solve an old problem. Some issues that have been causing you a certain amount of anxiety could finally be starting to ease up a bit, and your intuition ought to be able to serve you very well right now.

Ah, yes. Working on my illustration project -- little boy sleeping! And, omg, tiny hairs by a tiny little 10/0 brush! Individual tiny little black hairs on that boy's head xx;

Tiny little fingers!

Its good to be back in watercolours again.

It's not coming along fast enough. I'm glad I went with Plan B.

The white fluff is dorset wool that I'm slowly getting to look like the bottom jaw of the sheep. Who will, eventually, be able to hold the teddy bear's leg in it's mouth.

I don't know how many times I've poked myself with the needle felting tool with these. And they're tiny, really. The, uh, sheep and teddy bear, not the needle felting tools. But they're small, too.

Background noise? Oh, that's a coloured pencil piece I started at the beginning of November thinking I'd finish it easily. Whoops. Reindeer :x

That's why I shouldn't be allowed to draw during class. I get nothing done, I just doodle. Sure, it's on topic... but I can't use it for my final.

Ball point pen in my sketchbook.

For some odd reason I keep relating my illustration project to [livejournal.com profile] theevilstellie and her son Xander :P



Crappy photo of my fingers and the needle felted sheepie....

I've started knitting up that orange and brown yarn. Definitely harsh on one's fingers, that's for sure. It'll turn out an awesome grocery napsack, though. The ball of light orange is that bit Chris had spun and I traded out some of my thin yarn for.... And that's my orange book bag on the floor. Yes, I have a love for the colour orange, bite me :P

Old scrap that I don't think I ever posted.... Another old scrap that resides in the large sketchbook. I've dedicated that one to centaurs only... I think I posted one of them a while back ago, but she's over a year old, now.

Yay, all done. Time for more work.

So there's the book cover. Watercolours and gouache over pen and ink on watercolour paper. The scanner isn't acting properly so I took what ended up being a rather blurry picture of it. Who cares, anyway, right? I'll end up finding a properly working scanner soon and I'll impose the title and so forth digitally.



And there's the HUNTERS SUCK yarn. 102 yards, two-ply, not for sale. In response to [livejournal.com profile] fiber_friday's prompt 'Leftovers' for December 2nd. Kool-Aid dyed scottish black face wool plyed with a natural brown English Leicester, Salish, and Merino cross wool. Harsh and soft all rolled into one.

That's all for now. Time to go work on my sculpture final. And possibly dinner.

Hoorah for sketchies! Concepts for book.

Because I can :P Reposting the two I've posted before (there are differences now, so don't think I'm just posting for no reason....) and all are click for bigger.













Last bit was me trying to figure out how I wanted to draw her :\

Working on sculpture project today. Due 9am Friday. Wish me luck D:

Because I'm silly I'm going to post all of my drawings from Imagery for Children that I've not yet posted as scans. Other than two, one of which I stupidly deleted and one of which won't scan properly.

Christmas Tree -- the little shepherdess and her cheeky sheep... crow quill nib, speedball black acrylic ink -- done on thin charcoal paper.

Snow Monster -- the little shepherdess out in the snow (response to Snow Shepherdess... of which I stupidly deleted). Crow quill nib, black acrylic ink, washed with watered down speedball black acrylic ink. Watercolour paper.

...that's a branch with dried leaves sticking out of the monster's mouth, btw, to simulate fire being breathed onto the snow sheep :P

Stippled tiger of DOOM -- stippling is the use of a bunch of little dots to create a larger image. I'm insane for liking the technique as it takes forever. I don't have forever.

Close-up of the tiger's face just so you can see how insane I really am. Crow quill nib, speedball black acrylic ink -- strathmore illustration board, 8.5"x11".

Something I'm working on for the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival. Kinda large (beware). Not sure if I'll ever have time to actually finish it, though. Crow quill nib, speedball acrylic inks in black and white. 8.5"x11" burgandy Mi-Teintes paper by Canson.
