Artist very much in training

I have always wanted to learn to draw, I don’t know why and I know a lot of people feel the same.  I looked up some tutorials online and just decided to give it a go.  When I think back it was actually that desire that led me onto my craft obsession.  Drawing led to watercolour painting, which led me down a path of discovering different crafts.  Even though I’m still learning and finding my own way through these different mediums, I love how I just disappear into my own little world for a bit.  I used to feel too shy about how amateur my stuff is to show it but then I started to realise that, only a couple of years ago I wouldn’t have even attempted any of these so I should be proud of myself.  It’s only a hobby and the feeling of creating something myself is so satisfying.  I have a very long way to go but decided to post some of my stuff anyway 🙂  The majority of them are from tutorials from the web, some were copied elements that I changed to what I wanted, so I’m really looking forward to being able to come up with my own stuff.

Meditating Monk - Copied from web.  I'm pretty chuffed with this one, especially that I managed to show the highlights of the face in shadow.

Dragon Eye - From Web. I now know I needed to put more detail on the eyeball.

Fire Girl - The original tutorial was a girl with her hair made up of fluttering butterflies.  I 'aliened' her up a bit and added fire, I love the jet black background to really make her stand out.

Life in Hand - I took a picture of my hand in the pose and then tried to think what to put in it.  I'm really pleased with how this turned out.

Mannequin Mask - Different element from the web.  I really need to work on perspective here but still pretty pleased with it

Demon Lady - Online Tutorial.  Don't ask me why but I thought she was actually a rather pretty demon.  I have decided that her name is Elsie and she is a professional Babysitter.

  1. Nice! I know what you mean about the dragon eye but I still think this is a great picture. And death in bunny slippers is just brillant! I’m never asking you to recommend a babysitter though…
