Beautiful Punk

Beautiful Punk was painted in Photoshop. I haven't done a portrait in a while and thought it would be fun to take some time and practice. My favorite part of this painting is the hair. It actually started off blue, but pink seemed to work so much better being such a soft warm color and framed her face delicately.

The Hedgehog and the Butterfly

This piece was painted in Photoshop. I spent a long time on it, and I'm really happy with how it turned out in the end. I love the lighting. I wanted it to feel warm and comforting because it's intended for a children's book.

Life Drawing Portrait

This is a portrait from one of my Life Drawing classes. I used a white pastel pencil and charcoal. People, characters, organic creations are what I thrive on. I like getting lost in rounded shapes and subtle details of the face.

Candy Cafe

I used mechanical pencil for this art work and had so much fun creating the Candy Cafe. I appreciated everyones encouragement that I received almost everyday from both friends and strangers. All the itty bitty details were what was most enjoyable to draw. From the happy toast hanging out in the toaster to the ice cream lamps hanging from the ceiling, I loved every moment.

Pumkin Soul

I used Photoshop for this digital painting. It may have been influened by the pumpkin scone I ate at Starbucks. I wanted to paint a pumpkin spirit and what the inside of a pumpkin would look as a whimsical little world.
