Day 24-27 of challenge

Sorry for the lack of updating, but it's too much going on right now... Day 24 I continued with the Derwent pencils, but on day 25 I had no time again so this was a quicky, and I'm so not happy with this one! The last two I did at meetings at work, and therefor had some more time. So these might by favourites instead... ☺️

Day 23, Derwent skintone pencils

So, the final week I decided to go back to more realistic faces and to use my pencils from Derwent. For this first one I've used Cream with Ochre for shadows, Pink for the lips, Dark terracotta for the eyes and finally Brown earth for the hair(s). Did not erase the sketch lines, maybe will do that tomorrow.

Day 22 of challenge

Well, due to too little time I'm just doing a simple pencil sketch today... Hopefully I'll have more time tomorrow for something special. ;-)

Hi, here you have them, a middle-aged woman and a man... ;-)

I wonder what will be the next "theme"?!

Day 18 & 19

Still doing the cartoon style drawings, and the reason why they look so old fashioned is because I have this old How to draw story cartoons that I'm learning from. :-)

Well here is my last two drawings:

Day 16 & 17

And here's another couple of cartoon faces. :-)

Day 15, cartoon face

I've done manga now for a week, and liked the fact to not have to make it so realistic. So I'm transfering to cartoons now for a week to keep that feeling... ;-)

Day 14, the last manga

Well, not sonsatisfied with this one, but neither my heart or mind was in it today... Been worrying about my father whom I couldn't get in contact with. I made another boy, with a new facial expression. Tried to make him angry, but he looks more worried (or maybe I'm projecting my feelings).

Day 12 & 13, more manga

So, I'm continuing with this until tomorrow... Yesterdays I did at a meeting at work, and todays I just made in front of the TV. This time I tried to make the eyes a bit different... :-)

Day 10 & 11, two manga boys

I've continued with the manga, but this time I drew two guys instead. Finished painting the first one just before midnight, so thought I might wait until todays was done... ;-)

Day 9

Another manga girl, this slightly from the side. Same procedure as yesterday, but had a small accident with the erazing which left some marks...

Day 8, time for something new

Ok, so it's been a week with pencil drawings, which makes me feel that it's time for something else. :-)

I've had a book about manga for some time now, so I thought it could be nice to focus on that for a week. So here is my first manga face... I first did a pencil sketch, then filled in the lines with a black marker and then finally colored it in with pencils.

Day 6 & 7 of challenge

I was very short on time yesterday so I only had time for a 10 sec sketch. But I tried to make it with as few lines as possible as a challenge. Today's I made at a meeting at work, and used a co-worker as the subject. :-)

Day 5 of 29 faces

I'm continuing with family, and this time I drew myself. Not satisfied though, but I'm doing this to get better, right?! ;-)

Well, continuing with the pencil drawings in front of the TV, and with an image to draw from. This one is of my youngest wearing a hat. :-)

Day 3 of challenge

Well, today I drew from an old photo of my oldest daughter. Not completely satisfied, but it's time for bed now so it'll have do... :-)

Thank's for stopping by!

Day 2 of 29 faces

Today I had more time, so I decided to stick with the pencil but to draw from a picture... So here's a drawing of my husband. ☺️

A new 29 faces challenge

And this time I'll do it at the right time and by joining the challenge at 29 faces blog.

My main goal this time is just to continue to draw, because if I dont have something to focus on I tend to forget doing it.

Well, this first one is just a quicky from the TV couch... :-)

Shoe happy

Well, I been wanting to do this ever since I saw an article in Craft Stamper, and now that me and my oldest daughter found each own pair of white shoes on super sale, I thought I'd give it a go.

While N was doing hers with only Promarkers, I wanted to stamp first. I used black StazOn, but it was hard to get a proper print on the fabric. So I had to go over and fill it in with a marker. My theme was asian, and most of the stamps are from Hero Arts.

After I had the contours I filled them all in with ProMarkers.

Finally I created the background with Derwent Inktense blocks, grated some red and darker blue for the sunset bg, and some lighter blue for the other. When dry I notised that some of the stamping had gotten some bg color on it, so I added some Posca-color to fix. Here is our result! Kind of nice, right?! :-D

Today, two days later, I decided to make the moon light yellow to get a contrast to the white, so here is the final result! :-)

Birthday party cards

Me & N made some cards for her party that's coming up. She made the background splat's with yellow, red and pink acrylic colors that was mixed with a bit of water. Then she stamped the Hero Arts stamps with black Memento ink to finish it off. :-)

Circus blouse for my youngest daughter

I just love the circus fabric, but it was too little to make the whole blouse. I used some extra scraps that matched. :-)

Pyjamas pants

It's time to use up the cute child fabrics I've had for a while, soon the girls will be too big for them. My oldest chose this nice one, and wanted a pair of pants made. She also helped a little bit with the cutting...

 It was nice to sew again, and I'm really happy with the end result. :-)

Washi birthday cards

Bought a nice glittery washi tape that would go great with my Hero arts stamp with spun sugar, so I thought I'd make a card of it. Well, I made two while I was at it. :-)

Also bought Chameleon pens that I wanted to try out to make gradients. For the background I used distress inks.

Face #5

This face was done with a black copic and promarkers. The bg was done with Distress marker in Worn lipstick, but since it had started to dry out I filled the gaps with a pink highlighter.

Unfortunately I also used a regular black multimarker for the thinner lines, but that bled when I used the promarkers. Therefor the smudged coloring here and there. 

Monday, April 4, 2016

Face #4

Just used a pencil for this one. :-)

Sunday, April 3, 2016

Face #3

This was supposed to be a self-portrait, but the dimensions aren't quit right. Also this was inspired by Eleni S.'s beautiful drawings. This is done with a black copic, a warm gray Promarker and distress ink to color.  

Saturday, April 2, 2016

Face #2

The second was done with oil pastels and acrylic paint.

Painted faces 1

Was inspired by the February challenge of drawing one face a day, so me and the girls will try to make my own. Dont think I'll do one every day, but this is day one at least... ;-)

Amigurimi friends

I finally finished the two amigurimi friends that I started on a couple of years ago. It was only the arms for the red one left, but I've had too much to do with the move and all. And also I haven't been crocheting much lately. 

Well, this is the result! And the girls adopted them right away! :-)
