About Me

My photo
I am a person with a very energetic, bubbly, and optimistic attitude. I can be extremely random, which I am sure can be both entertaining and/or extremely annoying ^_^ But the most important thing is that I am saved by Christ, and He is my strength and salvation! I love talking about my Lord, and living my life for His glory :) Along the way I like to doodle what I see or imagine.

A Note from far far away ^_^

It has been a loooong time since I have posted anything! But I have not been idle!... Or at least not entirely. I still love painting! And I especially love hanging around the special friends that I have that give me so many good ideas for artwork! They keep me very busy! In terms of artwork ideas I feel like I get more ideas from others than myself, and I craft their idea into my own... I feel like a good proportion of the time that I sit down to just "do art" I come up blank. Which is why it is more fun to do it with friends who are willing suppliers of ideas! but anyway.. To the art!
And if you couldn't tell.. I love painting with blue ^_^

Blast From the Past!


(This whole post may also be a small apology for the huge amount of time that seems to come between me and my posts ^_^  Consider yourself bribed.)

This is one I have had for a while. It is from the Wingfeather Saga by Andrew Peterson.

The most recent picture I have done in this set. I have been doing several cards like these. It's been a lot of fun. I love the colors of sunsets, and the high contrast silhouette is really fun to do and looks really cool.

Diana Wynn Jones' Howl's Moving Castle is one of my favorites by her and there are several parts in the book that have inspired the following illustrations. I never shared these before in the hope that someday I would actually have a complete set. And I still hope for that, but I would like to share what I have ^_^ Hope you all enjoy :)  My favorites are Eldest of Three, Charmed suits and Long noses.. eh.. I guess I am pretty happy with all of them ^_^ 

The Oldest of Three
Timid Grey Mouse

Kindred Spirits

Charmed Suits and Long Noses

Effective Weedkiller
Seven League Boots.. Buckets

New Year! And a New project

So yeah, it has been a little while since I posted last... But that doesn't mean I haven't been idle! ^_^ 
I am so excited to share me year-long project with you all! It's basically an art diary. I have been enjoying it so much! I try to do a little bit every day. Of course with school I tend to fall behind, so then I just have more space to fill up ^_^ Here are a few samples of what my year has been like so far.

Watercolor Version vs. Pencil.. Plus other nonsense ^_^

Well, I finally did a watercolor version of my pencil dandelion. The watercolor one turned out different then I was expecting, but I like it. They both have their good qualities ^_^

Pencil: I like the cracks in this one, they look a little more like actual cement cracks ^_^
Watercolor:  The cracks look almost techno-ish (not sure of the proper term here ^_^ ) But otherwise I really like it!

Now for the random stuff:

The reason I haven't posted anything in forever? Why school of course! Thankfully it has been going pretty well. God has definitely blessed me even if in the midst of school. 

A quick sketch/watercolor of a Raggant from N. D. Wilson's awesomeandamazing series ^_^ LOVE THAT SERIES!


Here is the Doctor in Child form... They could totally do a series like this! It would be SO hilarious!! (Copyright Abigail Parnell, you can buy the idea for 150 thousand dollars! ;) )

Ok, so this is the REALLY random one. It's just a doodle I did for my BAE class last semester. ^_^

Dandelions!!

I recently read an amazing(!!) series by N. D Wilson that I reallyreally enjoyed! The first book is called 100 Cupboards, and the main character has magic that comes from dandelions! I have now decided that dandelions are awesome and totally epic, and have done several drawings/paintings involving them.. anyway, if you haven't read this series... you are missing out. Hope you like the artwork. I am sure there will be many more dandelions popping up in the near and far future :) Have a blessed Lord's day!!
                                                                                                                                                               



   I would like to try a watercolor for this one :) 












This one wasn't exactly inspired by the series.. but the dandelions definitely were! ^_^

Late Night Anime Fest! ^_^

I know it's late, and I should be in bed.. But I just wanted to share a couple pictures I did with my siblings.
Everyone keeps telling me I look like an anime character, so I found a quick anime character builder online made a few  ^_^ I especially like the eyes! Me and my siblings had a lot of fun.
This is my little sister did, and is supposed to be her. She was going for epic:)

This is another by my sister, and is supposed to be one of her characters she made up.

This is the one my younger brother did.. I really like how it turned out!


I tried several for me, but I think this last one is my favorite! ^_^ 

 I really like how the eyes look and I think these ones really look like my eyes. Which is nice, because I have been trying to draw my anime character myself.. Who knows, I am sure this is not the last anime that ya'll will see,

Lessons Learned :)

I definitely don't see myself as an abstract artist, but painting in abstract has definitely helped me learn a lot of basic skills in watercolor. So in the watercolor class I took I started out trying to be as realistic as possible and tried to get every detail, but the instructor encouraged all of us to think outside of the box and try doing it her way. And I don't think I would have improved as much if I hadn't painted in an abstract way! I also love trying to demonstrate an object with as little as possible and I think that artists that can are very talented ^_^

So here are a couple of the paintings I did in the class. They are mostly in chronological order. Hope you guys like them!






This last one is definitely my favorite. It kind of ending up being a weird mixture of realistic and abstract that I really feel is kind of balanced.
