Made another little watercolour painting using masking fluid last night. 🌿
It's for sale if anyone wants it! $30 USD, shipping included. ☺️ It's 5"x7" (the paper is a bit larger but can easily be trimmed). DM me if you're interested!
Tonight I learned that I have "incorrect" pencil grip. The first image is my natural grip, and the second image is the suggested "correct" grip?
Apparently my grip is called a "lateral tripod" grip??? (My thumb tip will move closer to the tip of the pencil if I need more control than just jotting quick notes, but it never actually grips the pencil between it and the index finger like in the second picture.) I dunno, it feels really natural and easy to control, so *shrug*.
Here's a #ThrowbackThursday piece!
From my first Illustration class in University. My teacher was the fantastic children's book author/poet Calef Brown. The assignment was to use gouache to paint a picture of a mythical creature. I chose to depict the Bugul Noz, a creature so ugly he turns anyone who sees him insane— so he hides himself away in the woods, alone, so no one has to see him.
I love this game.
Y'all… I love my gecko so much. In case you ever doubted that, here's a video I sneakily took of her tonight drinking from her water bowl, which I stripped the audio of because it was just badly echoey youtube video audio in the BG, and replaced with a version of "It's A Wonderful World" that my dad made for me on his keyboards and now I'm crying 😭
This may be the best thing I've ever made.
…and here's the finished sketch. ☺️ (Sorry for the quality; it's a photo of my iPad screen!)
It's been so long since I've done a sketch like this, let alone one of Sable. It makes me so happy to see her in an old Girl Guides uniform; I think she would love being one!
(Sable is one of the titular characters from my webcomic: http://sableandaster.com/ )
