Some months were hard. I was prolific in March-April, not in June, then gained speed in Sept-October, then started petering out again.

I saw Thor 2 and this is what it inspired me to draw when I came home. I love Mama Frigga, she understood Loki.

Last and final try. I tried watercolor, pencil, and now it seems this model is just drawn best with rough paper with charcoal.

Ever pull out a piece of paper intent on doing something then the hand does something else? I didn’t do this, the hand did. Probably have to do one more of this gorgeous model to get him out of my system.

Vanessa Hudgens Watercolor Practice
Watercolor and pencil.

I used Vanessa Hudgens as a reference but took away all her bling (feathers, necklaces, bracelets, piercings, etcs, so much!). I just wanted to practice.

Luna Lovegood

You know, she’s grown on me, Luna. I know she’s insane, but it’s in a good way. -RW

Charcoals on toned Strathmore, 2hrs.

I love Luna. I should love Hermione more—her bravery, cleverness, and the beautiful actress who played her, but I relate to Luna so much more. We are a lot alike.

swamp_mouse: (Teen Wolf - Isaac Lahey)

Pencil, black and white charcoal.

After doing a painting of him that came out just plain awful, I sat down with my first loves - pencil & charcoal - and did this quickly. It helped, but I still wish the painting would have turned out all right too.

What if Merlin was a ballet? Merlin and Morgana as ballet dancers.

Drawble for Camelot Drabble prompt “dance”. Pencil, white & black charcoal on Strathmore Toned Tan Sketch Paper
