And with that last toot, I've finally found my avatar...
Gah! It's been far too long since I posted anything. I'm sorry,,, 😭
I've been hiding away, drawing nearly every day, trying to improve as fast as I can.
Yeah, basic. 😓
Fun fact: In Mad Max, Fury Road, when Immortan Joe's War Boys launch themselves into battle and spray their teeth with "chrome", it's *actually* Wilton's edible Colour Mist spray glitter. For the record, it smells like cheap vodka. If all goes well, it'll make my chocolates all shiny and chrome.
WITNESS ME ⚔️ 😤
Ugh, just saw the repeating pattern of the canvas texture... I'll have to learn to fix that, or add it later using a less mundane texture.
Yeah, please don't do these things, thanks 😅

DON'T FALL FOR IT.
- the values are too flat
- I should have left more of the paper white
- there's too much detail, and it's too messy
But any feedback would be appreciated!
Three sketches from yesterday's trip to the #Bristol #museum and art gallery. It's a much more peaceful place to sketch the animals, compared to London's mistral history, and there isn't a gift shop every exhibit. I don't know what went wrong with the hyaena, but I made him look cuddly and not at all the cunning viscous pack hunter.
I moved on to the faces of the #bargue plates, mid march. The one on the left is the second in the series, and I loved how it came out at the time, especially the darker shadow work (hopefully you can just make out the half tone of the eyelid and cheek).
The girl is the 4th or 5th in the series. The shadow work is kinda stripey, so looks like she's carved out of wood (a good effect if that's what you want it to look like that, but I didn't), but I like the band in the hair.
Learning to draw and paint about 20 years too late...
