the colours looked a bit dull so i tweaked them a bit. also if any one's wondering this is when she's considering bashing him on his head with the frying pan.

i wanted to take progress pics throughout and then forgot all about doing that. the final image is still a bit untidy. i'll fix that later.

princess polly...

princess polly was a story i started drawing on a roll of toilet paper ( it was new) in school when i was 16/17. i later transferred it to a bill roll. these are some of the original panels. just some from here and there i was thinking of picking it up again... just for fun and to finish it :)

“And when the universe has finished exploding all the stars will slow down, like a ball that has been thrown into the air, and they will come to a halt and they will all begin to fall towards the centre of the universe again. And then there will be nothing to stop us seeing all the stars in the world because they will all be moving towards us, gradually faster and faster, and we will know that the world is going to end soon because when we look up into the sky at night there will be no darkness, just the blazing light of billions and billions of stars, all falling.” 
― Mark HaddonThe Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night Time

my painting does not do the quote justice. Mark Haddon is amazing with his words. If you haven't read The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night Time go get your self a copy right now. Read it asap. This is one of those books that had me smiling while crying :) not all books do that. And the quote i've posted never ever fails to send shivers down my spine or to make me feel tingly, scared and amazed.

My scanner messed with the colours a bit. i tried fixing it on the scanning programme itself but i'm sure i could adjust it better on photoshop or something but for now this will have to do. Her hair in the original is slightly more purpley while her skin tone's a lot paler. i need to work on my faces more though. i like how not everything's proportionate ( one eye is bigger one eyebrow is longer etc) but i've noticed that i stick to the same expression a lot. or they show no emotion. i think that's what i'm going for. emotion.
any face has some sort of expression. i think she looks sort of peaceful and sort of sad and whateverish.

if any one has any criticism constructive or otherwise it would be most welcome :)
the point of this is for me to see if i improve and to practice and try improve. it works a lot better than stuffing drawings in files and stacking sketchbooks in a cupboard :)

up up and away

Sometimes i draw crazy impractical ideas. This is one of them.(some bits got cut out when scanning- like the upside down umbrella to catch rain water and to shelter me and act as an impromptu parachute)

i once read somewhere that you only needed one square foot of cloth to act as an impromptu parachute. Not sure how true that is. i shall google it now :)


Midterms are done and all my assignments have been handed in so i can finally focus on this a bit more :)

Thierry was drawn on a yellow file which is why the back ground is slightly yellowy. i could't scan it and couldn't get the yellowyness on camera :)
My file looks a whole lot more interesting now  though.
He looks a bit sad. it's probably cause he spends a lot of time sitting on a shelf :P

This is by no means an original. I cannot however locate the original reference image but I can tell you that that was amazing. This was one of my first attempts at using water colours and I figured using a reference image and trying to recreate it would be good practice.

I will try locating the original image (I got it off a Google search but cannot remember what I typed in). If anyone finds it  please let me know and in the mean time I shall keep hunting too. I will post it when I locate it :)

The funny yellowness is probably 'cause i didn't scan it but took a picture on my phone :S but I kind of like the yellowness :)
