So it’s been a fun busy week for me. Sent out more query letters (thanks to all my friends who patiently listened, gave me sage advice and words of encouragement when I was left in the dumps), learned how to upload pictures onto ebooks (smashwords style guide is great), and worked on editing Stealing A Dream further. I know, I cannot stop with that one, but I decided to come back to it since I got stuck with Sugar Ache. I figure until I get responses or more feedback on it, I’ll just keep touching it up. I wish they would hurry.
Anyway, I’m here to share more artwork since that’s what I’ve been spending my energy on these days. I hope you enjoy them.
Adventures Start From Forgotten Places
This one started with an image in my head, of a boy looking into a portal of a sort. I had him in a cave before and then I saw some drawings of spiderwebs and brought the scene to a shed. I had trouble picturing the other world, but I knew I wanted something bizarre. Underwater world came to mind so that’s how the… aquarium thingy came to be. Anyway, I do love how this one turned out, I think if I can be honest this is one of my favourites. I already think of stories to write on this one 🙂

Kiss Me Already, Hunter
This one was just me playing with new brushes I uploaded onto Procreate. For those interested, this is where I got the brushes from. I love how the skin tones turned out on these ones. Man, it took a while to get the highlights right. The girl came out lovely but the hunter’s a bit of a mess, lol. I need to work on his eyes, I think.
Wizard Of Oz
I drew this one for the Sketch Club daily challenge of which the theme was Hearts. I had it titled ‘Is That Where The Heart Is, Dorothy?’ 🙂 This is actually a kind of… self-indulgent piece. Wizard of Oz is one of my all time favourite movies, I could watch it over and over without getting bored. The characters there are also inspired by those from other movies/books I love. The tin man is Marvin from Hitchhiker’s Guide to Galaxy, the Lion is Simba from Lion King, The Scarecrow is Turnip Head from Howl’s Moving Castle. The girl is a kind of modern version of Alice from Alice In Wonderland. I enjoyed drawing this one very much although it did leave my hand all sore and twitching afterwards.

Anyway, hope you enjoy. Take care, peeps and thanks for visiting. Would love to get comments sometimes so I know where to go to visit your sites.
