This is another pattern that I created on my IPad from the sketch I did for the other stuffed kitty. I changed the kitty to have a hat and swapped the pumpkin for a moon. However, I had to changed some things on the fly and and I still may have to tweak the next one.
Not everything I “find” on a page is an animal. The other day I found a rose, and on this page, I found a lady with flowers, her expression showing us that maybe stopping to smell the flowers and taking that moment for a quick meditation, just may be what the “doctor” ordered.
Albert was used to being on his own, living free as a bird with no worries in the world.
Then he met Esmerelda.
I still have a bunch of prepped blobs waiting to be turned into something.
This blob screamed flower. I kept trying to find a creature but this flower kept saying “me me, draw me!” So I did.
Another Imaginary Creature pulled out from the page. I drew the beak long and almost erased it, but left it because it isn’t supposed to be representational anyway.
There’s a lot of angles to this guy. He uses them to hide in oak and elm trees.
I also included what the page looked like before I painted him so you can see where I got the idea for him.
I have a few “prepped” homemade sketchbooks with patterned backgrounds that I use for characters. Sort of like a staged background. Today I used the background to randomly “find” a character.
This guy almost jumped off the page. But then he looks very terrier-ish so that would be normal for a terrier.
Georgie is a happy guy. Everyone loves him except……
The Cat Bully….
We are less than a month away from Inktober and that means the return of the Little Witch and her Dragon.
They are taking a vacation at the shore and are enjoying their Labor Day on the beach. Dragons love the sun on their hides. The laughing gulls are wondering if there are any handouts coming. The Little Witch is enjoying her latest issue of Broom Network Magazine where she is picking up decorating ideas, recipes and reading about the new cauldrons and brooms that are coming out this Fall.
Soon, it will be pumpkin and apple picking time!
((This is the raw sketch. There are some things that I would def tweak if I did this digitally but the joys or working with traditional materials are the quirks and happy accidents that make original art…original….))
I used Arches Text Wove paper and didn’t realize that the watermark is on every page of this sketchbook….LOL. At least I know it’s genuine! This paper is a little more textured which makes the pens I use act up a little bit but I am finding ways to work with it. Watercolor would def work better but I have a set color palette for the Little Witch series with Arteza Brush pens.)
Alvin, Trumpet and Puffygrinch try out for the circus.
I forgot to post this bunny. Lol. I thought I had and scrolled through and yup, no post. So one more bunny, coming up!
Gigi practices for the cheerleading tryouts every day. She wants it to become an Olympic Sport and wants to get the first Gold medal.
(I had to check to ensure it wasn’t a sport yet, lol.)
