Bombardier (WIP, maybe)

posted in: Art, Shameless Commerce, WIP | 0

For International Fairy Day; ink and graphite on 60(?) lb. smooth Piccadilly sketch paper.

Now wondering whether to color and how (digitally? with paint directly on this wrong sort of paper? print on watercolor paper and then paint that like I did with “Coffee, Coffee Everywhere… and Not a Drop to Drink”?)

My husband said this was creepy! I was just trying to have a non-elegant, non-wispy, non-female fairy for Fairy Day, myself. Funny what comes out.

Of course, if you’re following my page on Facebook, Whimsical Dreams Art, you already saw this! Figured I’d occasionally give sneak previews over there too.  Usually it’s here or deviantArt.

Prints and some doo-dads with this illo-as-is are available at deviantArt. Maybe more places later. Maybe after it gets painted somehow.

What I did for sketchfest (instead of sleeping) http://www.ellenmilliongraphics.com/sketchfest/sketchfestart.php?id=6353

4B and 7B pencils on 65 lb Canson sketch paper. Paper is about 5.5" x 8.5 but the drawing doesn't fill it, more 5.5" x 5.5" roughly. I expect I'll upload copies elsewhere and make prints of one kind or another (possibly of a digitally-cleaned-up version…). These two amuse me.
