Sketch for new painting

My latest sketch. I'm trying to incorporate dynamic poses and momentum (like in the hair.) However she's a mermaid (in a certain way) so maybe her hair is swirling in the water. Probably I'll incorporate a koi fish too somehow!

My latest fave: Horikita Maki

I can't resist her heavenly innocent face! Or perhaps it's the abundance of beautiful shoot photos (I don't find so much of other actresses.) Ahhhh Maki-chan, you are a dream!

Audrey Kawasaki's new show

Haheee, haheeeeee.... my eyeballs are about to burst from seeing so much beauty in Audrey Kawasaki's new show in Australia. I didn't write any comment on her blog because there were already fifty billion people going crazy, and I didn't have anything original to say! But l@@k ---->

Australia Outre Gallery pieces

Work in progress shots

Here is my favorite of all. What an ethereal face. I want my face to look like this.

My new mini-studio space

Our house is very tiny, and rather dark as well. There's not much space for me anywhere to have a studio, so... I commandeered a small corner of the living room (above my doggie's crate) and made it into a cozy little creative space. It's not luxurious at all, and I'm sure in the midst of my creativity, my supplies will spill over on to the floor/tables nearby, but... for now, I'm very pleased to finally have a "studio." :D

Beautiful Sawajiri Erika!!!

Today I'm sitting at work but there's no-one here! It's grey and rainy outside... I've finished all my tasks... so I have some spare time. I'm looking for inspiring images and I found these tooooo beautiful ones of Sawajiri Erika. >_<

Frame for "Spring," apologies

First of all, I had fun going to the store and picking a nice frame for my newest piece. The 9x12 size didn't have a label, so they were kind and gave it to me at the 8x10 price! I love how it turned out. I also opted for the museum-quality glass this time to minimize that annoying glass glare.

Second of all I must apologize to anyone who has written comments on this blog (I appreciate it SO much!) Blogger is acting intolerably stupid and won't let me login to reply to anybody. >:(

Spring -春-

Yay! I finished the sketch from the previous post. Amazingly, I like her quite well... The giant kanzashi in her hair took quite a while to do. I am pleased that she turned out the way I envisioned her when I started. That almost never happens. Sorry for the blur on the edges of the image. I'll get it scanned properly at FedEx tomorrow. My scanner is miserably small. :')

Beautiful images for my brain

Here are some of the pretty things I've found today to inspire me. I don't have original credits for the photos; just let it be known that they are © to their respective owners and none of them are mine. :D
