I am finished with that giant commissioned painting! WOW that took a long time, but it is incredibly detailed and turned out really well. I just need to touch up some last minute flowers in there and then I'll post a photo of it (sorry, no scan - it's 5 feet across, and I think my computer would blow up if I tried to piece together that many little scans....).|
I am already starting a sketch for the NEXT commission. I am scheduled solidly on commissions for about 8-9 weeks. If ANYBODY is planning on trying to get a commissioned painting in time for the December holiday season, PLEASE EMAIL ME NOW because it is already coming close as far as my "waiting list" goes.
Oh yes - the Hot Topic website now has a couple new stickers of mine on it - these are "Hot Topic Exclusives" meaning that you can't buy them anywhere else other than Hot Topic stores, or the Hot Topic website. You can't even buy them from me, lol. So if you don't live near one of their stores, you can order off the website!
"Allura" fairy sticker
"Green Dragonling" fairy sticker
"Peppermint Pretty" looks like she has sold out =P
I am getting ready to go into all-out Halloween/Samhain/Day of the Dead mode! This is one of my favourite times of year to create art. I know, I know, it doesn't have to be autumn to paint autumn-y things, but I like being inspired by the seasons at least a little. =P
Last year I did a bunch of good Halloween art: "Pumpkin Pixie", "Halloween Night", "Halloween Treats", "Dia de los Muertos", etc. so I have to try to "one up" myself this year - lol. Maybe some Victorian type Halloween imagery, some more pagan type Samhain, a new Dia de los Muertos, and some traditional Halloween stuff - a good Pumpkin King/Scarecrow/Witchy piece. Not sure what I'll go with first!
I've got to sketch this new commission first and then later today I'll be painting! Probably will be a little while, but I'll eventually be at my desk and you can peek in on me HERE on my webcam.
Off I go........
