A little drawing of the Cheshire Cat in Ever After High. I really like her design and wanted to take a stab at her. Started off with markers and color pencils but Prismacolors selection of purples and violets are stark in comparison to each other that it's difficult to acheive a smooth color gradiation. I'm sure a more skilled person can do it but I can't so I finished her off in Photoshop. Mostly highlights and hair shadows.
If I had money I'd totally buy the fairy parents in doll form.
Found out that drawing pads were 67% off at a craft and art supply store and rushed over despite being sleep deprived and achy. I finally have my standard 9 x 11" sketchbook! I tried using some from my stash of pocket sized books instead but I couldn't do it. For one, I haven't been in the best drawing mood lately and using the little books only drove me further away. I originally bought the little books to use as environment studies when I'm out but A) I'm never out and B) I'm too easily distracted or embarrassed to actually do environment studies. Which, by the way, is why I suck at backgrounds. I then a saw a friend upload some art and got the "Ooh, I wanna draw" twinge and broke in Sketchbook 2015.
Zelda. Because Zelda.*
And some attempts at Jane on the smaller sketchbook. Ugh, I can't even draw my own characters anymore I'm so out of practice I fail at self discipline.
This also reminds me that I haven't scanned sketchbooks 2013 or 2014 into what once was my massive annual doodle page...
Really wanted her to look similar to her Monster High counterpart but it's a bit difficult when their face sculpts are so different. I was somewhat disappointed when I stood her next to my Madeline Hatter and saw how similar they looked despite having different make-up. That's the trouble with all EAH dolls having the same bobblehead mold. Thankfully, the thick fake eyelashes really helped push her towards what I wanted. I decided the gold plastic on her accessories was too dull so I painted on some brighter gold on the raised designs and wow did that make things pop! Quite happy with how she turned out.
Going through photo folder and found this from January.
I gave Link Cupid’s wings while I worked on her.
Patron saint of non talktaive badassery.
A nice way to finish up a sketchbook. I should have completed this sketchbook last November but I fell off the drawing horse for awhile.
Anyway, Rochelle! She's a cutie and I'm a sucker for gargoyles. Especially for Greg Weisman Gargoyles.
