Transparent-Horned Girl

Today's daily is also up on my Red Bubble Gallery.

Note to those who may actually visit this blog (thank you!), I need a little help with something:
I recently got a new monitor and I'm having some troubles with calibrating the colours. Does this image look too blue or brown or cool to anyone? please let me know, it's a rather warm tonality to me but looks completely different on my laptop monitor O_o. Thanks guys. In fact, everything has a much yellower tone on this new monitor... :(

Feather Tattoo

Another daily girl finished and finished!

Drawn and coloured with vectors.
I actually began with just a feather and it sort of went from there.
I was consciously trying to make her face more 'interesting' than conventionally beautiful, thus the odd, androgynous features. I rather like them. :p

This pic is also up on my Red Bubble Gallery for sale.

Up To No Good

A daily that turned into a finished image again, i never realised how easy it is to get carried away with vectors. :p
I initially wanted to do a portrait of some kind but when I got started it became more and more stylised, so I just pushed that further until you have this. :)

I recently purchased a fashion and costume book from the Kyoto Costume Institute and I've been ogling the gorgeous styles, craftsmanship, fabrics and the whole opulence of, in particular, 18th and 19th century fashion. As I moved through the fashionable ages, I noticed, however, a distinct lack in the 1920's section and a sad lacking of the lovely flapper style I admire, so I threw in some of that deco influence here as well, to make up for it in my mind. :p

Hmm. I can't decide whether I feel this one is right for Red Bubble gallery or not, any thoughts please?

Also cross posted to my Daily365 blog.

Palest Doll WIP

A work in progress again, once finished it's going up on my Red Bubble account. :)
Vector illustration of a doll since it's become my recurring theme these days ^^'
I'm having some issue with the background colours though, i'm just not sure it's working... any feedback would be greatly appreciated there.

Robed Girl

Day 48's Daily is, obviously, a little late. Our internet has been rather spotty lately (that is a roaring understatement) and chose last night to continuously drop out every time I tried to use it.

(oh look, it dropped out again while I was typing this... and again another 3 times while trying to upload my image - I give up)

Anyway, yesterdays daily is a base drawing for a larger image to come so anymore updates on it will be posted here.
Man, I haven't drawn in pencil for aaaaaages. :p
Also, apologies about the quality, it's a photograph.

New Dolly WIP - Cardigan Girl

A work in progress that began as a Daily on my Daily365 blog.
Drawn in Illustrator.
I've slapped down some colour for now but i don't know if i'll keep them as i'm planning to colour her in Painter rather than in vectors. However, with my current passion for vector I may end up colouring her there anyway lol. We'll see.

Now, her face.
I would have had this up sooner except I couldn't for the life of me get her face right, something about the angle and the style I was aiming for and it just didn't want to turn out.
I must have reworked and reworked and reworked that face way too many times and I'm still not sure I'm happy with it. Sigh.
I am, however, happy with her outfit, particularly her legs, which means it wasn't a total waste of time after all ^_^.

Rapture in Red

Another finished image yay!
More vector art. If it wasn't obvious by now, red is my favourite colour.
I'm rather fond of the strange, symbolic feel to this one. I was going for a classical look to her features, which was pretty much the only thing that remained from the initial design... the difference from what this could have been is actually quite laughable. If anybody asks, I'll post the initial vector sketches at my own humiliating expense :p
This image is also on it's way to becoming a print on Red Bubble.


Red Bubble Away!

Finally posted my first print on Red Bubble, I'm ridiculously excited lol.
Let's see how this venture fares. I'd better get moving on more stuff to upload. :3

This is the print, thought the one submitted for printing has had a few tiny adjustments and cleanups.
