Challenge 53: Freebie - Lil Ginger Divavirginiadidntdie:
Hey guys! So my girl still needs quite a few layers and I just don’t have the heart to rush her and make her any sloppier than she is currently :p I will post an update in the next day or so! For now, here is an almost done lil ginger diva in sculpy and acrylic. . -Annelise :)
challenge 53: freebie - lady in patterns
most of my time lately has been consumed by pattern making. that said, i’ve always been interested in figural work that incorporates pattern work and blurs the boundaries of foreground and background. i felt like this challenge was a great time to explore that some more.
Challenge 53: Freebie - Zoctopus
For this challenge, I looked back at some of the stuff I did one year ago (I declared October “monster month”) and it seemed appropriate to create an undead Octopus, which would be terrifying. All of those flailing limbs, he would totally put Michonne to work.
Challenge 53: Freebie- Sargent Study
For this challenge I chose to work on something out of the norm and practice my digital painting chops. I picked a portrait from one of my favorites, John Singer Sargent, and went at it! It’s by no means perfect but I had a blast re-creating his brilliant color pallet and some subtle ways to describe the human form. Hope you enjoy!
Challenge 53: Freebie: what is on your desk?
I believe that a person’s desk can show ones personalities. I started this series a month ago and hopefully I can collect more :)
so, what’s on your desk?
Challenge 53: Freebie: Shapes
In Austin, we have an exciting event for creatives called the East Austin Studio Tour (EAST), which I’ll be participating in for the first time this year! Artists across east Austin will open their workspaces for the public for two weekends in mid-November. I’ll just be a guest in my fabulous mother’s studio (www.kjdaworkds.com) for my first year, but I’m extremely excited and have been producing a lot of work that will hopefully find a lovely home to live in! This piece is for the group show that kicks off EAST, and will be for sale, framed. If you live in the area, be sure to check it out! There is a lot of incredible talent in this city!
Challenge 53: Freebie: ‘Gingerly’
Decided to use this challenge to make a piece for the ‘Don’t Tell Mommy’ Erotic Art Show being held at the World Famous in Athens, Ga from 10/17-10/19 ( Why yes, that is next weekend ;D ) If you’re at all interested in attending the show, more info can be found HERE!
Overall It was a great opportunity for me to stretch my drawing legs a wee bit and try out some new tricks and techniques. It’s not at all what I had initially imagined when brainstorming the piece but I’m pretty pleased with how it all turned out ✨
