Fly Away

13 Feb

Here is a little photo project I was working on today. I took this photo in Autumn in Oconomowoc, WI and wanted to try this out but didn’t have Photoshop. Glad to be home!

This reminds me of ‘Emily’ from the Tim Burton film, Corpse Bride when she turns into butterflies. I may play around with color and change it to blue, to represent that, but right now I’m enjoying the fall leaf coloring.

Just finished my drawing of Mia Wasikowska from Tim Burton’s film, Alice in Wonderland!

This is a pencil and paper drawing with my drybrush technique. It took me three days, I stayed up late last night working on the hair which was first dry brushed then the highlights were added with an eraser, then the details were added with a pencil

The photo is a little dark, but when I took it it was taped to my laundry room door lol

Here is some progress on the Alice drawing I’m working on. The hair is going to take me forever but I am mostly happy with the facial features. Debating whether or not to draw her wearing her blue ‘Alice dress’ or something else.. or just draw her face. Sometimes adding detailed clothing distracts from the face and messes a good portrait up. Opinions anybody?
