    A Bee, A Spider and a Poof #4

    I didn’t quite finish my illustration for today! Easter and a birthday slowed things a bit. Luckily there is an extra Monday this month (Yay, bonus!). I’ll be finishing everything up for then. I did have blue rain/water in this image. I just noticed that the layer was deleted accidentally. I actually wasn’t happy about how the water looked, so it’s actually beneficial. I would have done more work trying to fix the problem then starting over.

    Have you ever saved time with starting over on a painting or by completely redoing a part of your art?

    A Bee, a Spider and a Poof #3

    Coloring took a bit longer than normal this time. I switched the “black” colors of the background with that of the spider. I also am not completely decided on the cat’s color. I’ve done him in light grey, dark grey, brown, black and orange. Still not 100% sure that this is not going to change!

    Lots of changes for this image! I’m not sure if there is a lot I’m going to change about this before I go to color. I don’t see any glaring errors at the moment. I will likely be making white areas in the eyes of both the cat and the bee. This month’s theme is showers!

    I didn’t get a lot of time this week to work on this. I’ve been working hard to get the new writing challenge all set up! I think I have the cover for that all done so I’ll be posting that tomorrow!

    Lady Luck Final – March Kidlit Collage

    Despite being sick this week I got my Kidlit Collage image done! I did this completely in Clip Studio Paint. I’m not sure that I’ll use this coloring style on all my art, but I feel like it’s something I’ll do again. I’ve actually started coloring like this for the cover of the Writing Challenge booklet!
