Digital Painting Practice- A Sunrise

Digital Painting Practice- A Sunrise

Been trying to wake up early for the past few days now and I’ve manage to do so twice this week. Not much but doing this is has always been a challenge for me. However, I refuse to give up.

In doing so I was able to see the sunrise. I’m a crazy person when it comes to a sunset. I adore them. I adore the sky in general.

If you take a look at the main banner for this site you’ll see the girl’s hair is made of the sunset and she is surrounded by the night sky, that has three rainbows running through it.  Being like this you would think waking up early in the morning just to see the sunrise would be a norm for me.

Well, it isn’t. I am not a  morning person. Never really been but after seeing this morning’s sunrise I may have to change that for good.

It was stunning, so bright and vibrant. Felt like I never saw orange so pure and fresh in my life. When the light filtered down through the trees I was so happy that I was up to see it. My little six year old sister was up as well and she too was amazed.

I was so inspired by that I spent a good part of the day looking at sunrise photos and practicing. I had fun doing it and will continue to do others; not necessarily limited to sunrises of course. Sunsets are , afterall, my first love.

Here is the finished piece:

Heya!!!!!

Here is the Korra fanart I was talking about. The hour long premiere was tonight and I really enjoyed it. Watched it with my little sister and our eyes were glued. Sigh, now to hold out till next Friday.

When I watched the first series, Avatar: The Last Airbender, I became an instant fan. So imagine my excitement when they annouced they were coming back with another Avatar series. I was so stoked.

I love this show for it’s a great tale with lots of adventure and comedy. Characters you will love and a world you’ll want to be a part of. It’s really creative the stuff they come up with. If you haven’t already go and check it out.

Legend of Korra is the second part of the Avatar series. The first book of this series was released already and now the anticpated second book has been premiere earlier this night and even earlier at Comic Con.

The premiere was great, just enough action and story to satisfiy me for a bit and make way for the other episodes ahead. Just like a good premiere should be.

If you do check it out tell me what you think and if you are already an avid fan like me tell who your favourite charcter is.

Show airs Friday at 7 p.m. ET on Nickelodeon. For more info you can also check out Korranation, my favourite page  for inside deets.

Thanks for reading.

“Ahhhh!” Goes the Bunny

January Sketch 001

Bus sketch

Here again with an older sketch. Did this in January one morning on the bus [24th to be exact]. Always liked it but never really got around to finishing it. It was a very pleasant bus ride, even a kind stranger who sat next to me said, I was afraid to make mistakes because I kept erasing. He also told me of his friend who is an artist and how free he was in his strokes. Hence why he told me this.

Anyway, here we are in September and I decided to “finish” the sketch.  I intended to ink it digitally and colour it as well.

It has been a while.

I was a bit busy with a project at work that left me exhausted but I still had  some time  on my hands so that should be no excuse.

Finished this sketch last night, used a photo referene. Here is a link of the photo: link

If you are curious about the words I have in the corner there, it was from an Irish poet. I believe his name is Seamus Heaney. I was listening to the radio and during an old interview with him, he said ” …think you just need to be simpler then suddenly you are yourself.” so I scribbled that down. Thought it was very true.

Also, I love this sort of style in regards to her clothing. If I could dress like this everyday I would. It’s a laidback look and I’m a pretty laid back person. Makes sense right?

Should have another sketch up tomorrow.

Thanks for stopping by.
