  • This was a sketch I shelved a while ago because I wasn’t “feeling” it. I was having trouble with the male figure and just gave up on it. Then the Enchanted Visions project announced it’s theme for February, “Secret Kisses”. Well, I immediately went back to it, re-worked it and here it is…I have to say thanks to Marianne Mathiasenfor starting the Fantasy Art Study Group. It’s really helped me practice drawing both the male and female figures. I have a lot to learn, but I’m pretty happy with it🙂

One of the questions I was asked was about my policy if an item gets damaged in their shop from over-handling by customers… will I replace it? Is that a common practice? It threw me off a little…

        I agree with what everyone else has to say. Unless it’s damaged while being shipped to the company, I wouldn’t think you’d have any further responsibilities. Once it becomes THEIR merchandise, it’s their responsibility.

  • Took a break from the painting (digital and real mediums) for some drawing and inking. Ahhhhh – it felt VERY good to ink something. Reminded me why I love comics, and that someday I will get something of mine published!

    ‎1 Feb 2012 – finished inking Cirrus. I have yet to decide if I want to give her some color or not. For now she is considered done. ^_^

  • A funny superstitious sort of idea entered my head just as I was about to post a progress pic of what I’m working on…. I think posting WIP pics jinxes me! When I post half finished pics of stuff, I lose all my work one way or another or dont finish it!! So I think I won’t do that anymore… I will only show sketches and finished work from now on! Am I a weirdo to think this way? Do you guys have any weird little superstitions about art? Hehe… :p

      • Marianne Mathiasen Katherine Rose Barber, I totally understand you. I feel the same way, whenever I start to do a WIP, I lose interest. When I draw and paint I enter another world where I don’t like any disturbances. You could say I join the fairies’ magic world, and I need them as my muses to help me finish what I set out to do😉

  • Am I a bad person for thinking that artist who trace their reference photos directly before painting are cheating? Its driving me nuts to see these watercolor artist tracing their flower reference photos. Im all for tracing a drawing you have already done onto the final board, paper, or whatever substrate your using, but really? You cant hand draw that rose bud? *sigh*

        Kristin I agree 100%. That was the point I was getting at earlier. I never trace anything unless it’s my own. When I participate in Sketchfest I draw all of my sketches on bristol paper – not the best paper to use watercolour’s with. So wheSee More

      • Kristin Palmer Exactly. Most of the time I just draw right onto my watercolor paper but when im not sure on something or if im doing sketchfest then I draw onto regular paper. So if I have a kickass sketch then I’ll use my lightbox to transfer my sketch to watercolor paper because if I try to redraw it it wont come out the same. It saves alot of time. I rarely do it though because I hate tracing period…its annoying LOL

  • Ok, so my giveaway is done now and my review of the app is that it’s fantastic! Here are the pro’s and con’s. Start with the cons: Couldn’t do giveaways based on a certain number of fans and you can’t do multiple prizes. Also I had one fan say she couldn’t access the giveaway but she was the only one and I’m not sure if it had something to do with her cookies or not. Pro’s: The traffic generated is incredible! I started of with 619 fans and am now at 711 fans. So far no one has dropped off so I’m hoping they stick around. I’ll have to let you know a little later on. But I’m assuming that people who signed up for this giveaway are generally interested in art anyway! Another pro is that I didn’t have to pick the winner. The system is set up to choose a winner randomly. You can see all the naSee More

  • I finished this today. Put about 15+ or so hours into it. Definitely the lesser end on the amount of time I put into a painting. This was fun to paint though. Definitely more movement than I normally have. Let me know what you think, I’d love to hear. This was done in watercolors on arches hot press.
