Wednesday & Thursday #4 {Hybrid Post} Pen Drawing & Thoughts

Hi My Lovelies,

Sorry I haven’t posted consistently lately, but I’ve been so lazy. I wish I was more motivated and inspired lately, but I think the energy drain is coming from my missing Leo {our cat}. We had to give him away recently and I miss him so much! I know there was really no way to keep him, but his little personality and his cute little face is missed sorely in our little home.

I haven’t updated my sketchbook {the one with the comic in it}, so instead I’m posting what I drew the other day just for fun. I drew it with a nice purple gel-ink pen. I love this pen that my lovely friend Toshia gave to me. :) Drawings below:

Let me know what you all think about missing a former pet!

Sketchbook Wednesday #2: Sadie’s Job

Hello My Lovelies,

Today is Sketchbook Wednesday once again. Last time I showed you a photo of the very first sketch page in my new sketchbook, which I hope to turn into a comic book. The first page was of a quaint little town that appeared sort of quiet, but with a lot going on.

Today’s page is page #2 and it’s introducing us to Sadie who works in the music store in downtown:

 

I hope you all enjoyed this week’s Sketchbook Wednesday! Have a great night, friends.

Thursday Thoughts #1: Thoughts on Movies & Drawings

Hello Lovelies,

So, I know this isn’t a sketchbook wednesday, but I also didn’t sketch in a sketchbook anyway. I sketched on printer paper and I did it with a crappy ballpoint pen. It’s all good, though, because I love how they turned out. I particularly love the cup with the ice. What inspired this sketch you ask? Well, I’m glad you asked…

Have you seen the commercial they play in the movie theater that shows the cup fill up with ice, then coke, and then they put the straw in it and all these bubbles are everywhere? (Wow, that was a horrible run-on sentence.) Anyway, so those amazingly spectacular visual effects inspired this drawing. I then played with color in photoshop.

Fun Fact: Last time I went to the movies, I saw Snow White & The Huntsman. It is now my new favorite film. I’m usually quite picky about movies, but this one was well-done.

Above is the sketch before colored.

Above is after the coloring. Instead of coke, mine is Dr. Pepper because it’s better than coke. Funny thing, though. I used to hate Dr. Pepper when I was younger, but now I love it most over other sodas.

Above is a sketch of just some girl. I started it at work while waiting to meet with someone for an assignment, since I was in her office space and not at my desk able to work. I didn’t have enough time to finish sketching her at work, though, so she was finished at home.

That’s it for Thursday Thoughts…
