Hello my fellow woodland creatures...how are things sprouting in your neck of the woods? I for one have been busy rearranging things in the home, thanks to this crazy "nesting" period I'm going through. It's a good thing I'm not a collector of heavy old furniture, otherwise I'd be driving everyone silly (and out of breath) pushing them around the house.
Between tidying and cleaning up, I've been treating myself to making more art in small sizes. If you remembered how rarely I make ACEOs, it's strange how I've been finding peace in creating them recently. Maybe because I'm not expected to spend too much time on the drawing table with this growing belly in front of me... :))
Here is how my typical working session goes...
I start with the black and white sketches...
...and start painting, just a soft blush across the faces.
Coloring the hair... definitely my favorite part!
Adding more colors... I like how they seem to become alive as I do this.
And just a bit of shading and accents with colored pencils to create more details and depth.
...and voila! These girls are done (minus cramps on my tummy!) :)
If you like any of these faces, I'm actually giving each away for every purchase in my shop. Of course you can choose whichever you like, just let me know your pick. And don't forget, I have a surprise set of free goodies for the first 20 buyers too!
Have a fantastic weekend, everyone!
