WIP – Lollipops, layer 1

Fought off mosquitos this morning long enough to get layer 1 of Lollipops started.  I’m having fun with layering and playing with mimicking my digital painting process.  The finished piece will have 5 layers of glass, including the stained glass background.

Finally finished a painting last night!  No pics of that one yet (it’s still a surprise) but this is a digital sketch I did this afternoon for the next one.  I’ve been thinking of lollipops since I woke from a dream where all I could remember was the phrase “The big lollipops have to be on different teams”.  Excited to try out some new materials and techniques on this one, more details soon!

A Diversion

I needed a diversion from the moon bunnies. I know I need to just sit down and finish that one, but it feels flat and icky and I don’t know exactly what it needs so I’ve been putting it off. Tonight I thought I should at least paint something, and this is one I’ve wanted to start for a while; my sister, doing what she does best, loving up one of her babies. I got a good start (see first image) but there’s a bunch of shape changes I still need to make before I start refining (see second image).

WIP – Natsuko and the Moon Bunnies – bubble tails and ears!

Made small progress today, but managed to get the bubble ears and tails in on the moon bunnies.
